I was advised to stop lifting weights as I suffer with back problems so was afraid what I would do instead because I love keeping fit. I thought this would be a great insight to someone who has spent an insane amount of time behind bars on keeping fit, pushing boundaries and getting strong. Bodyweight Fitness is for redditors who like to use their own body to train, from the simple pullups, pushups, and squats to the advanced bodyweight fitness movements like the planche, one arm chin-ups, or single leg squats. I have heard good things about such an approach, but I'm too scared to give up my current workout routine to try these techniques, so I should probably at least give it a shot before knocking it, but I probably won't. The best part about Charles Bronson’s ultimate prison workout is that the exercises require no equipment and are super easy to complete, just ask Charlie himself.

Great book for people who have just embarked the very frustrating and rewarding fitness journey but has no idea where to start, have limited equipment/room, or are just a bit shy from the public eye. One of the most basic exercises in the prison workout guide, dips are a highly effective way to build chest muscles. Charles at one point claims you can't build muscle on stodgy carbs and we should listen to his friend yet tells us he eats pies, chips, swill, porridge, salad etc.The author has painstakingly build his fitness even when locked in prison, by using some ingenious workouts given the constraints of his prison environment. Charlie Bronson has been in solitary confinement for over 30 years and yet unlike millions on the outside has stayed as fit as an athlete, holding several world records in the process. So, the gym is closed and the world is under lockdown, guess that means you’re free to eat whatever you want and avoid working out, right?

For a man who has such unbelievable feats of strength he does not expect too much; burpees, star jumps, squats, sit ups, press ups, they make up the exercises you undergo over the thirty day workout. My final thoughts on the book; It works well as a source of entertainment and motivation, Bronson encourages you to enjoy your workouts. As I’m not too familiar with these subjects my only comment here is that’s it’s definitely entertaining. With an extensive background in the media industry, he specialises in feature writing, lifestyle and entertainment content. Due to a lack of load progression the program implements progressive overload via metabolic stress rather than mechanical tension.Being rampant with misinformation or incomplete information, some exercises are not explained properly and thus feel unfinished. I've been swimming, going to gym before but after first day of solitary training by Charles Bronson Salvadore I feel my every muscle. We’ve collated some of his best fitness tips and exercises into the ultimate prison workout guide, perfect for solitary confinement and quarantine lockdown. I only remembered about this book towards the end of the lockdown but either way thought it could be an interesting read. While in jail in 2001, he married his second wife, Fatema Saira Rehman, a Bangladeshi-born divorcée who inspired him to convert to Islam and take the name of Charles Ali Ahmed.
