10/10 Follow The Rules!
By Michael Krivka, Master RKC
/ Gaithersburg, Maryland, United States
Danny Kavadlo's new book "Strength Rules" does what most books attempt to do: give you information, and a lot of it, that you can actually apply immediately. From a no-nonsense approach to eating to multiple levels of exercises and workouts "Strength Rules" is a complete package that will put the basic, intermediate and advanced athlete on the path to real strength. This book is filled with amazing photos, inspirational quotes and stories, and excellent descriptions of the the exercises that will put you on the track to greatness. "Strength Rules" is a must-have for anyone who loved the previous Kavadlo brother books ("Diamond Cut Abs", "Everybody Needs Training", "Stretching Your Boundaries", etc.) or the Convict Conditioning series. It's also perfect for anyone who is beginning on the path to physical and mental strength... or for the veteran who needs a not-so-subtle reminder about the importance of the basics. You will find things that you already new presented in a new and fresh manner as well as see things for the first time... all presented in a fun and engaging way that makes you want to get up off the coach and give them a try! I know - I know - I know, rules are boring; but "Strength Rules" is one set of rules that you won't mind following! :)
9/10 Great all in one strength training guide
By Will Mueller
/ Oceanside, California, USA
I'm an active duty Marine and have been an ardent follower of the body weight calisthenics movement since the late 1990's. "Strength Rules" is the best "all in one" resource for strength and conditioning traing through calisthenics. "Strength Rules" not only does a great job in articulating the exercises and routines but also tackles subjects like nutrition and positive mental attitude. I spent years experimenting on myself and my wife on best fitness practices from proper exercises and routines to vegan and paleo diets before I finally cracked the code. With this book you won't have to because the information's all there. A must read for anyone interested in natural fitness from the rank beginner to professional operator.
10/10 Danny doesn't disappoint...
By James Bourdette

When it comes to calisthenics I automatically think of the Kavadlo name!
Meeting both Kavadlo brothers back in November 2015 for the first time at the first SCC, I was blown away at their presence that drew everybody's attention to every word spoken. In "Strength Rules" I found a gem that I keep referring to not only for the physical guidance but all around strength that inspires to be mentally and spiritually strong! It is very humbling to see someone of his stature be so down to earth. Danny tells it like it is.
I love the simple direct approach to eating clean and of course the book wouldn't be complete with out humor and the signature Danny Kavadlo faces!
10/10 It's Never Too Late To Get Fit And Healthy!
By Gustaf Eriksson
/ Saltash, Cornwall, United Kingdom
Over the years I've become more interested in exploring simple ways of keeping fit and healthy - meaning not spending hours and hours in boring gym sessions! and tweaking my nutrition so it's joyful, not a chore.
Danny's book helps immensely. His training tips are clear, photos are a great help and his no nonsense approach really chimes with my own philosophy. I am in better shape now than I was when I was 30 - and now I am 66. I'm no aiming to break world records, but I am aiming to be able to do a few one arm pushups and a few one leg squats ....
10/10 Great man, Great book
By Patrick Brunetti
/ Princeton, New Jersey, USA
As I stated in the headline above Danny Kavadlo is a great man. The book speaks from his heart and his years of experience. As I've been fortunate to train with Danny one on one,i know from having that opportunity that he practices as he preaches.
If you are looking for a book to take you from regressive to progressive calisthenics, then Strength Rules is the way to go.
All that and Danny's wonderful spin on life...
5/10 Not Convict Conditioning
By Bob Lorenz

Convict Conditioning cannot be improved upon. Paul Wade should not have recommended "Strength Rules".
