 How to Train As If Your VERY LIFE Depended on Your Degree of REAL Strength, Power and Toughness  Most physical training systems are designed for the domesticated human animal. That is to say, for us humans who live lives of such relative security that we cultivate our strength and power more out of pride and for a sense of accomplishment than out of an absolute need to survive in the wild. The professional athlete hones his body to function well in a sports event-rather than to emerge safe from a life-or-death struggle. And even those in our military and LEO rely more on the security of their weapons and armor than on their own personal, raw power and brute strength to carry the day.  There remains one environment where exuding the necessary degree of authoritative strength and power can mean the difference between life or death: the maximum security prison. In maximum security, the predator preys on the weak like we breathe air. Intimidation is the daily currency. You either become a professional victim or you develop that supreme survival strength that signals the predator to stay at bay.  Paul Wade spent 19 years in hell holes like San Quentin, Angola and Marion. He entered this world a gangly, terrorized weakling and he graduated to final freedom, pound-for-pound one of the strongest humans on the planet. Paul Wade dedicated his prison life to the cultivation of that supreme survival strength. And ironically, it is in America's prisons that we can find some of the great, lost secrets of how to get immensely powerful and strong. Paul Wade mined these secrets as if his life depended on it-and of course in many ways it did.  Finally free, Paul Wade pays his debt to society-not just with the horrors of his years in the hole-but with the greatest gift he could possibly give us: a priceless set of progressions that can take ANYONE who has the will from abject weakling to strength specimen extraordinaire.  InÂConvict ConditioningÂPaul Wade has laid out a logical and effective zero to hero progression in key bodyweight strength exercises and presented a solid training philosophy. Get this book. -Pavel Tsatsouline, author of The Naked Warrior  Convict ConditioningÂgives honor and respect toÂbody-weightÂtraining.ÂI feel Convict ConditioningÂprovides the progression,ÂprecisionÂand clarity that is necessary toÂcombatÂour cultural decline in simple bodyÂknowledge. -Gray Cook,ÂMSPT, OCS, CSCS, Functional Movement Systems, author of Body in Balance  Convict Conditioning is a fantastic text crammed with solid information, and tons of vital nuggets and powerful insights that when followed will pack your frame with rock-hard, functional muscle. You provide the body, Convict Conditioning gives you the rest in a highly readable, easy-to-understand format that teaches you what to do and how to do it. As a guy who has written extensively on exercise, I highly recommend this book. -Loren Christensen, author of Solo Training and The Fighter's Body.  Coach Wade has laid out a set of progressions in Convict Conditioning that can lead to mastery of the big 6 bodyweight exercises and you would be wise to listen. ÂThis is knowledge proven in extreme conditions. So respect the progressions and put in your time-you'll be stronger for it. -Brett Jones Master RKC, CSCS, CK-FMS  Outstanding! By far the most innovative fitness book in years. Many talk about mastering your body weight yet Convict Conditioning actually delivers a blueprint for anyone, regardless of your current fitness. The training progressions are genius.   -Tim Larkin, Master Close Combat Instructor If you are a serious student of bodyweight exercise and physical culture, you must get this book. -Craig Ballantyne, Turbulence Training  I LOVE IT. Convict Conditioning is probably the best compilation of callisthenic exercises and training progressions I have seen. Coach Wade goes to the heart of true training with correct biomechanics, kinesiology and training progressions that so many in the word of physical training just seem to miss these days. Bravo Coach, bravo, an epic book that deserves to be in the library of all who love the world of strength.   -Mark Reifkind, Master RKC Instructor, Girya Kettlebell Training  Convict Conditioning is jam packed with the most powerful bodyweight training information I have ever come across. It's the book I WISH I had in my hands when I was a competitive wrestler, BUT, even more important to me is that I can pass on this knowledge to my clients AND my son and daughter when they grow up.

Does Anyone Else Want to Be a Highly Successful Personal Trainer-And Truly Live Your Dream? Most folk who embark on a career as a trainer, do so initially out of a personal passion for fitness and a strong desire to help other achieve results. Be it weight loss, conditioning, strength gains, flexibility or enhanced performance. But a passion for working out and an earnest desire to help others-alone-does not a successful personal trainer make. The sad fact is that the turn over rate for personal trainers after one year is over 80%. Why? It's almost always because the trainer didn't have a proper understanding of the BUSINESS of being a fitness professional. The bottom line is that without the appropriate success blueprint, the most skilled and knowledgeable personal trainer is usually doomed to failure. Unfortunately, until now, there has been no such battle-tested blueprint available either to the novice trainer or the professional struggling to stay alive. Now, however that's all changed, thanks to Danny Kavadlo's Everybody Needs Training. Follow the hard-earned wisdom within these pages and failure will no longer be an option. Danny Kavadlo's training helped me to discover strengths I never knew I had, and I can take those lessons with me wherever I go, for the rest of my life. The wisdom and insight contained in Everybody Needs Training not only relates to being a successful fitness trainer, but can be applied for peace and success in many of life's ventures. Danny is the best!-ELIZABETH GILBERT, #1 New York Times Best Selling Author, Eat, Pray, Love. One of TIME Magazine's 100 Most Influential People in the World Everybody Needs Training is quite 'something.' I don't think I have ever seen this kind of depth in the field. It's both obvious and 'wow' as you read it. Amazing stuff. It fills a gap in the community that, frankly, surprises me no one has really filled.-DAN JOHN, author, Never Let Go Christmas wishes DO come true.Danny Kavadlo has written a training book! Imagine if you could squeeze all the hard-earned wisdom, secrets and tactics of one of the world's hottest personal trainers between the covers of a beautifully illustrated tell-all manual, and you have imagined Everybody Needs Training. Like Danny himself, this groundbreaking book is incredibly smart, brutally honest, laugh-out-loud funny, and totally out of left fieldif you train others (casually or professionally), want a career training others, or if you just love the now-famous Kavadlo approach to getting in shape, you owe it to yourself to grab a copy of this masterpiece. I cannot recommend it highly enough.-PAUL WADE, author of Convict Conditioning Danny Kavadlo strikes the right tone: if you are built for it, personal training is one hell-of-a-satisfying career: do it right and you are literally transforming people's bodies and lives. So if you think you're built for it and considering jumping into the shark tank of personal training, Everybody Needs Training will be invaluable. And the tattooed Gonzo vibe is priceless.-MARTY GALLAGHER, author of The Purposeful Primitive, 3-time World Masters Powerlifting Champion Danny Kavadlo has personally helped me become a more successful trainer and coach. I cannot recommend Everybody Needs Training enough. It's the best book I've ever seen on the subject of being a professional trainer.-ADEL GABER, World Class Trainer & 3-Time Olympic Wrestling Coach Everybody Needs Training is a must-read for every personal trainer wanting to take it to the next level, and everyone who has ever dreamed of becoming a personal trainer. This book allows you to get inside the genius PT mind of Danny Kavadlo, a master of his craft, speaking off the cuff to you about training-priceless!-ERRICK MCADAMS, Personal Trainer, Model, Fitness Personality A solid collection of tried-and-true best practices that can help personal trainers on any level reach their full potential in their chosen field. -ROLANDO GARCIA, RKC II, CK-FMS
