I'm on Brooks Kubik's (Dinosaur Training) e-mail list. Well, he has a new book/manual coming out in January for a bodyweight program.
Now, I've seen a few books on bodyweight stuff, and I even own a few (Naked Warrior by Pavel and Combat Conditioning by Matt Furey). They are decent books, but nothing new or revolutionary. And it's not something I could rely on exclusively in my training.
Yes, I like to incorporate bodyweight exercises within my weight training. And for times when I can't train with weights or need a short break from pounding the weights, I enjoy doing some bodyweight workouts.
The information about the manual seemed pretty cool. He has "new" exercises and stuff that will take you a whole new level in your training. I'm thinking, "This sounds pretty cool and better than most of the other books I've seen on bodyweight training."
The manual shows photos of every exercise and comes with a free nutrition book (Nutrition for Dinosaurs) and a DVD with the exercises. Sweet!
So I go to the link to pre-order the book. I'm thinking, it's probably $40 or so, right? Well, it's $197!!!!! And this is the special "pre order" price. It'll be more in January and not have the free stuff. I'm thinking, "What the hell!?"
How can a book/manual on bodyweight training be so freakin' expensive? Just what does this thing contain that is so different or revolutionary compared to all the other books on bodyweight training?
If anyone buys this manual, be sure to let me know what you think and if it's really worth $197 or more.
