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.
I have it, I use it.
Any specific questions, I"ll answer. :bully:
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?

Which one? Gravity advantage or gravity advantage max?

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?
So which one gets you in better shape?
