    Hey Al,

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

  • Al Kavadlo

    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 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?

  • Al Kavadlo

    Practice just hanging at the bottom position of a pull-up for time.  You should aim to work up to holding that for at least two minutes.  There’s actually a nice section in Convict Conditioning 2 about grip training.  You should consider getting a copy:

  • Staffan Persson

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

  • Staffan Persson

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

  • Al Kavadlo

    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!

  • Aatif Naziri

    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?

  • Al Kavadlo

    Hey Aatif – Glad you enjoyed my book.  I am not a fan of the treadmill and  I do in fact recommend outdoor running year-round.  I made a blog post about running in the cold a while back.  Here’s the link:

  • Tymurds

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

  • Al Kavadlo

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

  • Denis

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

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

  • Al Kavadlo

    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.

  • Branl

    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…?

  • Al Kavadlo

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

  • Branl

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

  • Frank Rossi

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

  • Al Kavadlo

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