“I have been waiting for a book to be written on strength training that I can recommend to all of my patients, and Danny Kavadlo has delivered with Strength Rules. Danny has written a stripped down approach to strength that is accessible to everyone.
He has distilled his wealth of knowledge and experience in coaching and bodyweight strength training into a program that is cohesive, scalable, and instantly applicable to all comers. He has also added a rock solid approach to nutrition and ample doses of inspirational story telling and philosophy, resulting in the gem that is Strength Rules.
I dare anyone to read this book and still give me an excuse why they can’t strengthen their body and improve their health. No excuses. Get the book and get to work!”--DR. CHRISTOPHER HARDY, author of Strong Medicine
“Strength Rules is one of the finest books on strength I've ever read. No ifs, ands or buts. Not just ‘bodyweight strength’--strength, period. If you want to learn how to unleash ferocious strength and power while also improving your health and ridding yourself of extra fat and joint pain, THIS is the book you need to own.
If you are a bodyweight master, this is the bible you will want to go back to again and again, to keep you on the straight and narrow. If you are raw beginner--then get this book right now, follow the rules, and save yourself years of wasted effort! Strength Rules is as good as it gets!--PAUL WADE, author of Convict Conditioning
Almost every strength exercise comes down to the basics. Essentially, Squat, Push and Pull. These three broad, essential movements are the granddaddies of ‘em all. Throw in some Flexion, Transverse Bends and Extension, and you’ve got yourself the tools for a lifetime of full body strength training. That’s why the exercises contained in Strength Rules are divided into these few, broad categories. Everything else is a variation. There is no reason to overcomplicate it.
The Strength Rules mission is to help anybody and everybody get in the best shape of their lives Strength Rules lays out the truth clearly and succinctly, giving you the tools you need to grow stronger and persevere in this mad world—with your head held high and your body lean and powerful…
The exercise portion of Strength Rules (titled ACTIONS) is split into three levels: Basic Training (Starting Out), Beast Mode (Classic Strength) and Like A Boss (Advanced Moves). Naturally, not everyone will fall 100% into one of these groups for all exercises in all categories and that’s fine.
“Strength Rules by Danny Kavadlo is so good you can’t ignore it. It’s minimalistic. It’s low tech. It’s simple. It’s right. Kavadlo’s work always has me nodding along with a lot of ‘yeses’ and ‘good points.’ This book is about true strength. This book is about empowering yourself and others. Again, Strength Rules is so good, you can’t ignore it.”--DAN JOHN, author of Never Let Go
