10/10 Hybrid-alicious
By Dave Parker / Sydney, NSW, Australia

Have been using the Kavadlo Bros books for a year, stuck to their programs rigorously and have gotten great results. But I kept getting the urge to mix weight training in with the calisthenics. Couldn't get the right combination, Danny's new book Hybrid Strength training has solved that issue.

As with his other books the layout is clear, clean and uncomplicated, but still packed with information. The programs have the familiarity of the calisthenics ones, which is great to see as it gives me confidence I'll continue getting results. The exercise progressions and rep ranges really suit me and it feels like the programs where personally written for me.

Making consistent progress is that "self motivating" factor, it hasn't been difficult heading into my garage gym to workout, in fact my missus will attest that stopping me from working out for a rest day is harder. Looking at all the programs in the book, at the end of the course it will be easy to self write the next program. There are so many alternatives to "mix n match" especially bringing in his other books to add in the multitudes of calisthenics exercises. There's a lifetime of training possibilities with his books.

Lastly the price of the book, it was a Black Friday Sale, but I feel like I've mugged him. Going to train in a stripey jersey and ski mask ??

10/10 Great for all levels
By Jon Green / New York, New York, USA

Danny knows what he's doing! One tip alone from this book increased my pull-ups by 40%. I'm going to get a lot out of this book for a long time - I've barely scratched the surface.

10/10 Free weights or calisthenics-you can do both!
By Ben Johnson / Kenosha, WI, USA

Danny Kavadlo has really outdone himself this time! I have been a follower of the Kavadlo Brothers (Danny and Al) for years, and I have always enjoyed their writing and workout programs. The argument of which is better-calisthenics or free weights-has finally been put to bed: combining both is the way to go!
In Hybrid Strength Training, Danny Kavadlo lays out the rationale for incorporating both bodyweight and external weight training into an unparalleled fitness experience. It also includes the most detailed list and description (with photos) of exercises I have seen in a long time. Quick, note: it is heartwarming to see hip bridges and trap bar deadlifts on adjacent pages. Finally, Danny puts everything together with 3(!) detailed six-week programs.
Full disclosure: I have been training with Danny virtually for the past year and a half. That training has followed the methodology and protocol outlined in this book, and I have gotten stronger and put on a substantial amount of muscle, all while actually losing body weight. I am more fit in my 40's than I was in my 20's and 30's, and that is thanks to Danny's guidance and this fantastic program and book!
I cannot recommend Hybrid Strength Training enough! In a society where we are often divided among religious, cultural, or socioeconomic lines, Danny has at last put to rest, once and for all, the argument between calisthenics and free weights-combine both to keep the dream alive!

10/10 Honest workout programme
By Jim Scott / balnarring, Victoria, Australia

An effective honest work out programme from a giant in fitness Danny Kavadlo, a perfect mix of weights, compound lifts and bodyweight training, and as always no nonsense fitness advice. I cannot recommend this programme highly enough.

10/10 Well Crafted Programming
By John Bennett / Canton, Ohio, USA

As always, I have never been disappointed with a Danny (or Al) Kavadlo training book. And Hybrid Strength Training brings all the Kavadlo strength wisdom into one concise book. Great programming in a concise writing form that makes it easy for anyone to comprehend and perform. It's also a fantastic study for new fitness/kettlebell instructors on the finer points of programming a client's training. Much recommended.

10/10 Follow this program!
By Brad Mechor / Calgary, Alberta, Canada

Straight forward, ass-kicking program!
Easy to follow
Minimal equipment needed and it will leave you feeling strong and ready to go for the next workout!

10/10 another outstanding book by a Kavadlo brother
By leo steving / LATROBE, pa, United States

outstanding book on stenghth/sports training that ranks right up there with ALL of the Kavadlo books.

9/10 It makes sense to train this way.
By Kas Hansen / Rome, Lazio, Italy

As a fitness enthusiast, practitioner and student of classic bodybuilding and calisthenics myself I have always found that the two go hand in hand. Barbells, dumbbells and bodyweight exercises. I have been convinced for a very long time you actually should do both to fully develop your physique and reach your genetic potential. I always tell anybody that is into working out that wants to hear it about this.
It shows in all the greatest classic physiques of time, they all lifted weights plus they did pullups and dips, etc.
This book by Danny Kavadlo is awesome and very usefull not only for myself but also to train clients so much props to Danny for writing it.

5/10 Not what I was expecting
By Danielle Firth / Liverpool, Merseyside, United Kingdom

When it said 'calisthenics ' and forwarded by Dan John, i was expecting something great. I know that pull ups are calisthenics but I was hoping for a novel description of how to combine barbell strength training alongside calisthenics progressions such as muscle ups, flags, press to handstand, planche etc. For me, it was very basic and to be honest, I wish I could send it back.
