Rien de nouveau par rapport à ce que l'auteur a déjà publié. De plus, la mise en page est moins plaisante. Seul bon point : le prix dérisoire.

Le livre est VIDE, aucun exercice, et rien sur les "testosterones naturelles" à part des insultes. Bien sûr puisque c'est écrit par un ex-tôlard.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Good book, excellent value. Not required reading for beginners but definitely requires for intermediate and advanced. 29 mai 2014

Cross posting my review from the CC Facebook group:

I just finished reading it and overall really liked it. If you enjoy Paul Wade's writing style it is worth reading simply for entertainment value. With that said I would suggest that it is more beneficial to intermediate to advanced calisthenics athletes. The main reason being, most beginners will change next to nothing, if anything at all, from the standard CC protocol. Much of the useful info won't be useful to people still paying their dues at the earlier steps, especially if they read the 10 commandments blog post. This book simply adds more tools to your tool box so you can tailor your training more specifically to you down the line. I still think beginners should read it, I just put it at a lower priority than some of the more advanced trainers. At the ebook price everyone should buy it regardless, but if they are struggling to find time to read it, putting it off until they are a bit stronger is no biggie.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent Old School Strength and Mass book marred by extreme language 9 juin 2014

Review – C-Mass by Paul Wade

C-Mass is an ebook by the author of “Convict Conditioning,” Paul Wade. I have heard there are plans for a paperback to follow.

This book is Old School, lifting lots of heavy weights, with lots of rest to gain both strength and mass. Although the focus of this book is on strength, it even has a chapter on strength without mass. Many are the points gleaned from reading the old old Masters (e.g. Saxon, Larry Scott, Irving “Zabo Koszewski, Alan Calvert, Marvin Eder and others most with pictures). For the modern viewpoints The Kavadlo brothers, Al and Danny are frequently pictured and quoted. There is heavy emphasis on bodyweight workouts with the progressions as taught in Progressive Calisthenics Certification program with which I am not familiar.

Paul Wade did not come up through the gym circuit, but the prison circuit. He has no time for fussy diets, which did not exist in prison, saying you need cholesterol and fat to produce testosterone and thus to build muscle and strength. He is adamant that you cannot build either strength or mass without plentiful rest. He points out repeatedly that the programs in his “Convict Conditioning I and II” and Kavaldo's “Raising the Bar” serve up superior strength up well though calisthenics. Paul has no time for anything but the basic exercises with progressions to make them progressively more difficult. But note that most of the exercises are compound like squat, deadlift, pushup, pullup, leg raises, twists, dips one arm pushups, pistols, rope climbs, flags and bridges. Paul discourages isolation exercises. Paul sees no use for supplements, having witnessed many men gain huge mass and strength in prison without them. Thus this book is iconoclastic, attacking many of the current truisms of both strength and body building. (There us a strange disclaimer in the forward: “This book is not biography. The names, histories, and circumstances of the individuals featured in this book have accordingly been changed either partially or completely.”)

Much of the material is summarized into lists of 10, making it very accessible and memorable and easy to post on walls. One of the best is “The Ten Commandments of Calisthenics Mass.”

Will Paul Wade's program work, building strength and mass. Yes, undoubtedly it does work. The actual programs for workouts are in Convict Conditioning I and Convict Conditioning II, and Raising the Bar. While Paul does not mention it, “Jailhouse Strong” by Josh Bryant is another book developed from the prison circuit of strength and mass building. I feel Paul's development of a program and Josh's observations on workout practices, including gym games, and the mass and strength developed in prison and jails complement each other quite well.

Unfortunately, Paul does not have respect for other points of view and resorts to insults, major name calling, occasional profanity, and lots of very imaginative vulgarity to make his points. I think most sailors could learn new bad words from this book. The book is very good Old School Lifting and Strength Building otherwise. But it cannot be recommended into any youth program due to the extreme language. I hope John DuCane will assign an editor to clean up the language before this book goes into print formats. Otherwise the market is limited to adult programs.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Simply unmissable at this price 29 mai 2014
Par Steely Dan - Publié sur Amazon.com

A very, very surprising book. I want to say "little book", but at pushing 200 pages on Kindle it's much bigger than most other Kindle-only training books, which are more like extended articles. This is an actual, proper training manual.

There are lots of books on getting stronger and fitter using calisthenics. There are also many (thousands?) of books on getting more muscled with machines and barbells. However, there don't seem to be many entirely dedicated to building muscle with bodyweight. I mean, how do you work your hamstrings? Your neck? Your inner triceps? Your quads? It's all in here, with plenty of routines and also the LOGIC behind those routines, which I really enjoyed.

What interested me also is that as "Devil's Advocate" there was a big chunk of the book dedicated to pure strength, which Coach Wade clearly views as essential for getting bigger (this is no "appearance-only" book, by any means). I learned a lot from this, also the section on building testosterone over your lifetime, which (like everything else Coach writes) is the OPPOSITE of the status quo ideas, which is, as ever, why Coach is so much fun to read.

This is by no means the "typical" book you expect. Page by page, Coach Wade explodes myths and smashes down sacred idols. At the very least this book will make you think--at the most, it may hold the "secret" keys you have been looking for to add some real muscle! I'm a fan, now more than ever.

Lastly, Dragon Door books are almost always high-quality, but (to me) invariably overpriced. Pavel's Power to the People is a great book, but at only a hundred pages or so I was charged too much. This book is much bigger, and just as full of information. For the price (about the same as a McDonald's meal) this book is simply unmissable if you want to gain some quality size.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 c mass good read 11 juillet 2014
Par BD Cupido - Publié sur Amazon.com

Interesting book. Good information. A lot of people will ask for a more comprehensive template but this is not the point. I feel in this case less is more. At some point we have to take responsibility for ourselves . I like the clear explanation of the differences in the strength and bodybuilding approaches. Too much fawning over the kavadlo brothers though. Seems a bit gay to me. Also too much swearing and using the Lords name in vain. Totally unnecessary. Al Kavadlo is hardcore enough. Swearing not!!
I have the previous books Conviction conditioning 1and 2. Probably some of the best information available with regard to bodyweight training.The progressions are good for the most part except for a few steps I feel where it is too much of a jump eg. the one arm push-up progression from uneven to one arm partial push-ups.
What is made clear in C mass for me at least is the concept of strength training being likened to skills training. I have applied this skills approach to my front lever and the progress I have made in 2 weeks shocked even me as I was about to call it quits and switch goals again. My pull up bar is in the garage and every time I enter my house I do a quick set or 2 of about 5 seconds each. Then I forget about it until I walk pass again .I can now hold it with one leg extended and all this took me less than 10 days from my previous tucked legs version. I am going off at a tangent though. Maybe this high frequency thing while keeping fresh should have been emphasized more in Convict conditioning.
Having got a clearer idea now of the requirements of strength vs bodybuilding I think working on skills for the next month will set the stage in terms of strength. I used to blast my abs through long gymnastics style workouts which exhausted me but returns were minimal. After 5 months of blasting it my abs strength was still pathetic. Now rather I sit on my butt watching tv and every time an advert comes up I do a single 3 second L sit. Within 3 days my L sit has improved to the extent that I can actually "feel" it in the target muscles without my whole body shaking like a freaking reed.
Don't be limited though. For some body parts I use the bodybuilding approach. For others I do the strength approach. Chest maybe twice a week . Abs every time it enters my mind.

I would love to see a picture of coach Wade though doing his stuff. Also maybe he can share more of his experience on injury management from his perspective . Good read. As for the cheap ones complaining about the price, the information is worth a whole lot more so quit complaining and start training .

Coach Wade (or whoever he may be) writes in a straightforward manner that doesn't mince words or allow for misunderstanding. If you've never read anything else he's published & are curious then you can't go wrong for the price. Very few books are both simultaneously entertaining & informative. Roll on CC 3.
