Al Kavadlo April 2012 Update

These last several weeks have been a whirlwind!

Between all the work that went into finishing Raising The Bar, plus keeping up with my personal training clients, I needed a vacation, so I took off to Sayulita, Mexico for a few days last week.

It was great to relax and blow off some steam, but you guys know me – I can’t help myself from getting a few reps in wherever I go!

Since returning, I’ve been busy with a few other projects. I penned a guest blog for Mark’s Daily Apple, and there’s also this interview I recently did with Mike Fitch from Global Bodyweight Training. Plus a few more things I can’t tell you about just yet…

In other exciting news, I am pleased to announce that Raising The Bar will officially be released on paperback on Friday, June 1st, 2012.

Nimble Fitness will be hosting a party to celebrate the occasion that night. All are welcome to attend!

Though the official launch will not take place until June 1, the book may actually be available a bit sooner than that. Check in with for more information as the release approaches.

Also, be sure to check out my new highlight reel video if you haven’t seen it yet:

    Wooo! Paper back! I’ve been holding off for the paper book that I can take with me. I’m excited about that! Great vid btw, especially the one-armed push ups and the free standing handstand press up!

    this, you’ve got to set up your bindings at your shoulder width apart. Be mindful
    about placing the back binding slightly closer to the rear fin at a nil degree
    angle, straight sometimes.

    awsome video ! thanks for the inspiration Al….is it possible for someone to reach this kind of strength without weight training(deadlifts and squats)?

    • By Al Kavadlo - Reply

      Thanks, Angelos!  And yes, I believe one can get extremely strong without ever lifting external weights.

    Al great video. Incredible strength. I just stumbled upon your site from marksdailyapple. Great content. One question. Do you recommend pull ups, push ups, and bodyweight training everyday? 

    • By Al Kavadlo - Reply

      Thanks, Ken!  As for your question, there are a lot of factors to consider when designing a program and there is no one answer that is right for everyone.  There’s a more thorough discussion of this in Raising The Bar.

    Hi AL
    Why is it I can do an L shaped sit up on parallel bars but not on the ground

    • By Al Kavadlo - Reply

      L-sits are much harder on the ground!  Parallel bars allow for more room to ease your legs into position, plus they don’t require you to keep your legs as high (or as straight).
