Overview

How to Train As If Your VERY LIFE Depended on Your Degree of REAL Strength, Power and ToughnessMost physical training systems are designed for the "domesticated" human animal. That is to say, for us humans who live lives of such relative security that we cultivate our strength and power more out of pride and for a sense of accomplishment than out of an absolute need to survive in the wild. The professional athlete hones his body to function well in a sports event-rather than to emerge safe from a life-or-death struggle. And even those in our military and LEO rely more on the security of their weapons and armor than on their own personal, raw power and brute strength to carry the day. There remains one environment where exuding the necessary degree of authoritative strength and power can mean the difference between life or death: the maximum security prison. In maximum security, the predator preys on the weak like we breathe air. Intimidation is the daily currency. You either become a professional victim or you develop that supreme survival strength that signals the predator to stay at bay.Paul Wade spent 19 years in hell holes like San Quentin, Angola and Marion. He entered this world a gangly, terrorized weakling and he graduated to final freedom, pound-for-pound one of the strongest humans on the planet. Paul Wade dedicated his prison life to the cultivation of that supreme survival strength. And ironically, it is in America's prisons that we can find some of the great, lost secrets of how to get immensely powerful and strong. Paul Wade mined these secrets as if his life depended on it-and of course in many ways it did.Finally free, Paul Wade pays his "debt to society"-not just with the horrors of his years in the hole-but with the greatest gift he could possibly give us: a priceless set of progressions that can take ANYONE who has the will from abject weakling to strength specimen extraordinaire.

    Excellent!! Simple, no nonsense, old school..,.,.

    This is a very compelling read; you'll fly through it and be motivated to begin. This program requires patience, but when you come out the other end, you'll be a stud! Anyone can do this; it's a progressive method of bodyweight excercises that you already know. I started it three weeks ago, and the results were immediate and startling. Get this book!

    At 62 yrs of age and 100 lbs over weight, I had pretty much given up hope of ever getting in shape. I found this book and on a lark bought it. 
    I have followed his progressive workout routines for 10 weeks now and am blown away by the results. The book focuses on legs (sqauats), chest (pushups), back (pullups), back (bridging), and gut work. Each of those areas has responded visibly. My legs are showing muscle. My arms are getting firm. My chest is filling out. It is amazing. And it only takes maybe 10 minutes in the morning, followed by 15 minutes of stretching. Oh, and my weight: I am losing between 1 and 2 lbs reliably every week of fat weight, and I have put on 4 lbs of muscle weight for a total weight loss of 22 lbs. I fully recommend this book.

    Great Read

    I was told about this book of how it could point me in the way of getting stronger...and I was very impressed with what it said it caught my attention from beggining to end. I try to use thses philosiphies on my workouts.
    I feel someone who is looking for a challenge would do well with this book, and its sequel.

    Not just recommendations, but a true "system" of progressive bodyweight training if you don't possess weighted bars. Even if you do have weighted bars you may give them a miss after reading this. A true stand-out in the field.
