Overall, excellent, but I take exception to the author's wrist pushups - - would strongly warn against this exercise. Not structurally sound, for another exercise which strengthens the wrist bones and is a bicep conentrator: instead of grasping the pullup bar with the hands, make fists and bend inwards, then place the wrists over the bar, and pull up underhanded [never do overhanded wrist pullups, only underhanded ones].
The two most useless exercises are the classic pushup and situp - - truly useless, although variations on the pushup are quite good.
The author includes handstand pushups [recommend facing a vertical structure, then using it as a gude for the feet to lean light against] - - variations which are best, although not mentioned, include lowering to only inches above the ground while in handstand position, then moving horizontally - - next exercise would be similar position, lowered to inches above ground, the moving inwards and outwards - - next would be in normal handstand pushup position, then straighten out fully, doing inverted shoulder shrugs.

Incredible. The detailed descriptions and photos of correct form teach you almost as good as a video. I found out though that I can't actually perform a strict pull up after reading this, so time to get down to business...

Thank you for writing this book. I am really excited about the results I have seen in my body from just a few repetitions of some of the simpler exercises. I have only done about three repetitions of the planks and my arms and abdominal muscles are already feeling and looking better. Thanks again, Ashley.
