Overcoming Gravity: A Systematic Approach to Gymnastics and Bodyweight Strength book
 
Hey guys,

I'm happy to announce that the book I've been working on is complete and available on Amazon!

Purchase on Amazon

Description of the book:

Quote:

Overcoming Gravity: A Systematic Approach to Gymnastics and Bodyweight Strength is a comprehensive guide to the most overlooked, yet most powerful elements of strength training.

In this book, Steven Low takes the reader on a journey through logically and systematically constructing a strength oriented bodyweight workout routine. With a highly systematic and scientific approach, Steven delves into the exercise physiology behind strength training and how to adequately prepare the body for the rigors of bodyweight training. Using the same rigor and attention to detail, Overcoming Gravity also includes recommendations for all bodyweight athletes concerning health and injury management. Unlike other books on this topic, it provides extremely comprehensive sample programming to assist in the design of a well-balanced routine, including information about the proper execution of the exercises and techniques.

If you prefer your books on fitness and health to include data, science and effective recommendations, then Overcoming Gravity is an ideal addition to your library.
Table of Contents and additional information.

Feel free to ask me any questions.
