Why Buy This Ebook
I wish I had this book when I first started training calisthenics . At the beginning of my journey I was lost because there was a lack of information dealing in a systematic approach. There was information on what exercises to do next, misleading
and limited advice on how to plan and follow a program.
It doesn't matter what exercise you do next if you don't know how to put it in a program. I had so many questions, How do I gain strength? How to train a skill frequently without getting fatigued? How many times should I train core, hand balancing, etc? but it was difficult to find the answers.
I thought I had to train to failure all the time (you don’t), because too many athletes were saying to do so, with no “context” to your goals, fatigue, recovery and the rest of your training. With my PT education I knew about the anatomy, so some of the stuff I was hearing made no sense but when the top athletes in the field are saying it, you start to have some doubts. Through my journey, I experimented, made mistakes and learnt what did and didn't work for me.
Calisthenics is a beautiful skill but it obeys the basic principles of the anatomy. It looks impossible and yet everyone's journey will be different but there must be an underlining systematic approach. This book is to help you understand how the body functions and how you can take that knowledge and apply it to your personal calisthenics training.

It took me a long time to try calisthenics when I was first introduced to it. I was intimidated and thought that I could never do those amazing moves. But then one day I was alone in my room and I asked myself “if all these people can do it, why can’t I?” and the funny thing is my mind couldn’t come up with a reasonable excuse to why I couldn’t do these skills. From then on I knew if I train properly, progress and stay consistent my dreams would come true. Famba means “to go towards your goals” in my language, shona.
