    Hey Al,

    Where on the site can you register? Is it still open?

    • By Al Kavadlo - Reply

      Hey Gil, there are still a couple of slots open for the bootcamp at NY Jiu-jitsu (assuming that’s what you’re asking about). You can register in person at NYJJ or by telephone (not sure if they are open today). The number for the studio is (212) 343- 8310. Talk to Ed or Sean.

    Hi Al !

    Im in the canadian army and i inspired myself with your website to setup a painful workout for my squadron (not pain just discomfort). So far the troopers hate me but it pays of ! They increased their push up big deal !!! Sorry for my bad english im french …

      I’m glad I’ve inspired you guys in your training!  Good thing you know the difference between pain and discomfort!  Thanks for your comment!

    I just “graduated” from P90X….yeah….it was beneficial in that it took me way out of my comfort zone….and my two kids are now fit-conscious.

    one question with pull ups….I find my grip/forearms giving out before I think I’m done…any ideas?

    Hi al! How many days a week can I do pull ups without overtraining?

    • By Al Kavadlo - Reply

      It really depends on several factors.  This question will be addressed in depth in my next book, which will be out in the spring.  I’m going to keep you in suspense til then!

    I just got your ebook and read most of it, pretty interesting stuff  I have started on CC workouts and have been doing KBs for a few years  You do mention running, so I am thinking of adding running to my training. Do you run outside in winter or do you use a treadmill? Any tips for running in the windy city in January, should I brave the weather or should I join a gym to run on treadmill?

    Off topic because I’m not sure if you check old articles: Al, what are some suggestions for human flag progressions?  

    • By Al Kavadlo - Reply

      Do a search.  Ive blogged about the human flag on many occasions.

    Out of curiosity what are your bench,squat,etc like?

    Why do you not gain more muscle(because you are damn strong)?

    • By Al Kavadlo - Reply

      I haven’t benched in years but I imagine I could still rep out with 225.  My PR on a barbell back squat is 300 (ass to the grass).

      As for my lack of mass, I have a small frame and I don’t eat that much.

    Al, how can I avoid a big chest?  I do pressups but I have seen some pretty big chests out there!!
    I was GTG grease the grooves on pressups with 5 minutes rest between..will that stop me from bulking my chest up to much…?

    • By Al Kavadlo - Reply

      Has this been a problem for you in the past?  Sounds like an irrational concern to me.

      • By Branl - Reply

         lol you may be right Al, but just dont want to much of a big chest..

  • By Frank Rossi - Reply

    I enjoyed the workout last Saturday. Still sore and in pain today Monday. Feels good. thanks.

    • By Al Kavadlo - Reply

      If it feels good then it’s not pain!  Glad you liked the workout, Frank.
