    Thumbs up Convict Conditioning Logbook!

    For those who missed it, John Du Cane has just announced that Paul Wade has written a Convict Conditioning logbook!

    Any News On Convict Conditioning 3?

    This is great news for these ears...I learned a huge amount about recording my training properly in Convict Conditioning 1...believe it or not, it was something I rarely did, even after years of cross-training and climbing. After reading CC1, I took Coach Wade's advice, and began keeping a log. I know not everyone wants (or probably needs) to do this, but after I started something really "clicked" for me and my training became much more focused and efficient.

    I currently use an Iroman log-book, which, frankly, blows for body-weight training. Sobring it on! I will buy anything penned by Coach Wade! The first two books have been mind blowing.

    Another gift to my training coming up, me thinks...

    Yes it is great news that there is another CC book coming out and it sounds like it will be soon too! Maybe I am missing something but I keep a log book of the steps\progressions I am on in CC but I dont understand how this could be somehow turned into a book.

    Could someone possibly explain what kind of format they would envisage this log book to look like?

    Thanks

    Here's copy of part of Maelstrom's interview with the man:

    QUOTE/
    Dragon Door: Speaking of the DVDs, on the two I've seen so far, there are a lot of variants including plyometrics (tuck jumps and sentry pull ups for example). What's a good rule of thumb for adding these to a training program?

    Paul Wade: People who've read Convict Conditioning know that I believe in working hard with the "Big Six" exercises. These are the six most basic ways the body moves. Each of these six basic calisthenics movements also have a corresponding explosive movement. Squats are a great muscle building strength movement, and the corresponding plyo move would be a tuck jump. The explosive version of a bridge would be a back handspring. Just like strength calisthenics, athletes should build up their explosive power progressively by dedicating themselves to a chain of increasingly harder moves. The area of progressive calisthenics, speed, power, and reflex training will be the subject of Convict Conditioning 3. You heard it here first!

    As a rule of thumb, I keep explosive power training fairly low volume, just like strength work. If someone wants to increase their power, explosive exercises should come first in a workout, or have their own workout—but this isn't universal. I've met combat athletes who swear by putting their explosive work after they work the same muscle groups. For example, box jumps after exhausting squats. They claim this helps keep them explosive even after they're tired in a hard fight. In Convict Conditioning 3 I'll give all kinds of workouts and programming tactics—the approach to power depends on the desired goal. A footballer or Parkour athlete will play by different rules and have more interest in explosive work than someone who trains for increased strength and muscle alone.

    I hope that helps DK1001.

    I could be wrong, but I would envisage something like this:

    But, knowing Dragon Door, something of truly excellent quality!

    God, if we can not build our own log book how the Hell you get the motivation to exercise. Gotta love Capitalism. If you are to lazy to do it, someone will help, for a price.

    Respectfully disagree, Mr Dude!

    I have bought an off-the-shelf training diary for years, and I assure you, I am NOT a lazy man. I look forwards eagerly to Paul's new version...

    Anyway...We purchase calendars and diaries to help us organize our daily lives--why not a printed log book to help organize something as important as training?

    Just a personal opinion!

    I actually sympathise with this sentiment.

    That said, a few quid spent on a professional long-term training diary is a vastly better investment than a fortune forked out some supplement that lasts a few weeks and gives you nothing but farts.

    Speaker! Hello fine sir!

    Even into creaking, advanced age, training is going well--better than ever.

    Very simple now: chin-ups and press-ups convict conditioning style, added to deadlifts. I play with dumbbells and hand-balancing (still terrible) and some "toys" in the garage for fun. And that's all my body needs.

    How are your training efforts going?
