    GravityAdvangateMax?

    Clicked on one google ads.
    GravityAdvantageMax thought it was Ross's book.

    Interesting story. Have anyone heard of this or has this book?


    To understand the power of this manual I would like to share this with you:

    One of my former students got involved in a fight. Living in a rough neighborhood he
    had to fight to defend himself. Having badly hurt his attacker, he was sentenced to 42
    months (3.5 years). At the time of his sentence he was a minor. His greatest fear was
    his future in the adult prison. My former student heard stories of what happens to the
    young and the weak (regardless if they drop the soap or not). He waned to lift weight
    to become strong and more importantly to appear muscular.

    The problem was that due to frequent fights the facility where he was held had all the
    weight lifting equipment removed. Only dip/ high bars and bare benches were left.
    He knew that squats and push ups will only get him so far, and that is when he
    remembered what I had preached. I have long advised him to do full bodyweight
    resistance lifts. These are the exercises which place all the body resistance on a
    selected group of muscles. Most of them are way too difficult, but I have on a few
    occasions explained and demonstrated a sequence of progression. My student
    lucked out, because he saw other students and myself perform those and had a
    mental picture of what I was talking about.

    He had less than a year to get himself into a tough, mean looking shape. Having not
    much else to do he trained. This was the first time, that I seen someone as
    determined as myself achieve super strength with these exercises. Not too long ago, I
    met my former pupil. He was the exact definition of visuable strength. His loose denim
    jacket could not even hide it. His shoulders were the size of the Olympic lifter. Vasti
    portions of the quadriceps protruded through the jeans. Biceps and triceps tightly
    filled his sleaves. His powerful traps greatly elevated his collar. Just to make sure, I
    asked him if he only used the exercises I gave him. He said yes.

    Recalling back to his experience, he told me the following. By the time he was
    transferred, his body was totally changed. So was his strength. He wanted to test his
    strength the conventional way. Once the iron became available, my former pupil
    gave it a shot. On the bench press, he lifted over 150% of his body weight, 3 times.
    Keep in mind; he had no access to weights in about a year. Could the push ups do
    that? Never say never, but I doubt it. He also tried the leg curl and leg extension. On
    the curl he lifted more than his own body weight. On the extension he easily did full
    stack of plates.

    He achieved this strength with only his body weight. After this I decided to write about
    this method. Although I am sure that this method is not new, I have never seen
    anything similar in print.

    I will not put weight lifting down. Iron has it's undeniable place in the world of fitness.
    What I set out to do is the following: Show the amount of strength that one can
    achieve with bodyweight exercises. If you have been a fan of push ups and crunches
    as body weight exercises you are up for a very huge surprise. Most of the exercises
    in the GAM method will be too difficult, for 95% of the athletes. Just imagine using
    only a fraction of your musculature to lift the whole body weight. Oh yes, itís
    possible; a scientifically designed, kinesiological progression is the key.

    You have my interest, elaborate on the methods, and please give a site with at least a few step by step photos, like Matt Furey did with the Royal Court.

    There is some demo of flexibility on elasticsteel front page.
    For GravityAdvantageMax there is only few pics.

    I found the prison thing interesting.
    Just wondring why this book (GAM) cost more than other one's.

    For specific question- Do you feel like the book actually teaches, what it promises to teach?

    Is it for aesthetic training or purely athletic principles?

    They both have levels.
    It's like you start with easier stuff and keep working on it and than move on to harder stuff.
    I think it's for overall strength.
    What is aesthetic training?
