    Kudos to Sommer for introducing gymnastics as a means for developing fitness in everyone -- not just professional athletes. It is a shame that his book is not much more than a watered-down encyclopedia of gymnastics movements. It includes brief descriptions of progressions toward the more difficult exercises, but doesn't offer much programming or any of the foundations required to begin training (i.e., mobility, prehabilitation). Instead, Sommer frequently refers to his other books for these things... but the books don't exist! He apparently opted to charge hundreds of dollars for an online course ( instead of publishing what he originally planned to. I want to believe that the course acts as the much needed supplement, but am not too eager to enroll after seeing the way this book was written.

    Gymnasts are just about the perfect athletes. They have amazing self-dominance, control, power, poise, balance, coordination, flexibility, strength and general athleticism. For this reason if you go to the 'gym' and are thinking of adding this to your routine- don't. Throw the gym out and do something worthwhile. If you have never done body weight training get Mark Lauren's Bible of Bodyweight training and start there...Excellent exercise progressions, good evidence based advice, the book gives multiple progressive strength and conditioning tasks to practice and perform but falls short in terms of programming. If it had more explicit information on this then I would rate it more highly. Will investigate the effectiveness of approaches at some point in time*. *If serious about creating your own gymnastics or strength based routine with body weight movements see Overcoming Gravity.

    Got me more into movement instead of barbells. I may not be as strong as with pure weight training, but I'm definitely more mobile and acquainted with my body

    The best body weight training book I've read so far. I've heard good things about 'Overcoming Gravity', but haven't had the pleasure of reading it. My other bodyweight program experience was Convict Conditioning, which was a joke. This boom is written by a real live gymnastics/calisthenics coach, the techniques work.

    Awesome book, one of the premier bodyweight-style training programs around in my opinion. This book was far more effective for me than the heavily marketed Convict Conditioning. The author is the real deal, has succesfully trained high level gymnasts, and his protocols work.

    Superb bodyweight training as used by gymnasts. The author is a pro who's also successfully coached ranked gymnasts. If you want real life bodyweight training that'll get you results, read this book. For effective strength training in general check out Starting Strength and Tactical Barbell.

    Full of uncommon insights into how one can train in a very particular way to cultivate strength and flexibility, the gymnastic way.

    Okay, this book is the real deal for body weight strength enthusiasts. Skip the 'Convict' fables and get this. This book is for adults.

    Some nice gymnastic progressions, but the programming section was very disappointing and id not explain why some training methods should be used.
