Next Level Strength

The Ultimate Rings and Parallettes Program

By Al Kavadlo and Danny Kavadlo

eBook, 224 pages

Foreword by Jeff Cavaliere

"Al and Danny cut to a depth that most calisthenic practitioners will never reach. What you have before you is a well-researched, practical approach to achieving your fitness goals through bodyweight training, produced by the experts in their field."—Jeff Cavaliere MSPT, CSCS, ATHLEAN-X™

"I have been using the techniques that Danny and Al have taught me personally and I continue to make progress well after the age of sixty. This is amazing information brought to you by two of the best people I know."—Dan John, Author of The Hardstyle Kettlebell Challenge

"Next Level Strength takes all the power of old school calisthenics and blasts it to a higher level! This is the ULTIMATE manual on using rings and parallettes as old school calisthenics tools. As I've gotten older I've found myself utilizing the techniques in this awesome book more and more...the result has ALWAYS been the same: old aches and pains vanish, my joints heal, I gain fresh muscle, and I make breakthroughs in total-body strength.”—Paul "Coach" Wade, Author of Convict Conditioning

"Danny and Al Kavadlo have truly taken their already masterful bodyweight strength instruction to the next level with Next Level Strength. Rings and parallettes are great training tools, but the genius of this book is in the exercise selection and progressions. The program is accessible to the beginner, while giving the advanced trainee all they can handle. Most importantly, the program is fun and goal oriented, and will be in regular rotation with my own training. The Kavadlos always set the bar high with the quality of their books, and I think this one will become my favorite, which is saying a lot. Next Level Strength should be on the bookshelf of any serious student of strength. Highly recommended!"—Dr. Chris Hardy, co-author of Strong Medicine

More Gain With Less Pain: How to Ring In the Changes on Your Body — And Get Significantly Stronger Faster…

Why Rings?

  • Hit your core harder for a faster, tougher, more effective workout. Unlike a fixed pull-up bar, rings are free-floating and unstable. They can swing back and forth, rock side to side and even rotate. This forces your body to stabilize itself to a greater degree. Win the stability game and your reward will be a higher-functioning, more resilient system that can better adapt to sudden, surprising challenges to your balance and overall equilibrium.
  • Enjoy a greater freedom of movement when practicing your favorite moves. The more freedom and fun you have when you exercise, the more likely you are to persist and keep on getting stronger and stronger. Because they are not connected to one another, rings allow you to pass in between them on moves like the skin-the-cat and muscle-up. Whereas you must maneuver around a pull-up bar, rings will not get in your way.
  • Become more durable — and extend your training life. If your joints start screaming at you and you feel all broken up, then your gains are going to turn to losses, right? Your success is dependent on your weakest links —the joints and tendons. Training with rings can potentially be more forgiving on your joints, particularly those of the wrists, shoulders and elbows. By allowing your hands to rotate, your joints may move in a more personalized range of motion. And this in turn can be a lifesaver for the tendons.
  • More easily perfect moves you’ve been struggling with. Though some exercises are more challenging when performed on rings, others are more accessible. When you incorporate rings into your training you automatically open up new ways to be athletically more effective.

Why Parallettes?

  • Abolish the wrist pain that often plagues floor exercises like planks, L-sits and handstands. Since parallettes allow your wrists to maintain a neutral position during these and other exercises, they offer a great way to work around (and possibly help eradicate) any issues that may plague your wrists.
  • Translate a stronger grip into greater overall body strength. Squeezing parallettes while practicing these exercises creates more tension in your upper-body, which can facilitate a greater mind-muscle connection. This will help stimulate greater strength gains, especially with regard to your grip, core and shoulders.
  • End exercise paralysis by finally being able to nail a "hard-for-me" move. Elevating your hands with parallettes makes many exercises more accessible than when they’re performed on the ground. Often, beginners lack flexibility and/or core strength. Having extra clearance beneath your body can make just enough of a difference to help you nail your first L-sit or tuck planche.
  • Let’s you adapt the exercise tool to fit YOUR body, rather than being the prisoner of a more rigid setup. You can adjust the width of your parallettes to suit your individual proportions, which you cannot do with affixed bars. More freedom of choice of position — and presto, faster, better gains!

What to Expect When You Engage With Next Level Strength

Next Level Strength is broken up into three levels, with each becoming progressively more difficult. As you advance, you will be met with more challenging exercise variations and increasingly demanding skills. You will also notice that there are more total exercises in the later levels. This is no accident. All three levels consist of workouts that gradually increase in training volume. This means you will slowly build up to more reps (or longer holds) of each movement over the course of several weeks. You need to add more total workout volume as well as more demanding exercises in order to continue to trigger further adaptations in your body.

During Level 1 — Unstoppable, you will do each workout 3-4 times a week for two weeks, with at least one day off in between training sessions. You will progress to a more challenging workout every two weeks. Following the program in this manner means you’ll be devoting 8 weeks to this level, though some people will need more time, while others may need less. Each training session should not require more than 50 minutes of your time, and in many cases will require less. There are also modifications which you can make to some of the Level 1 exercises to regress them if necessary. These are addressed in the "trainer talk" section of each exercise. Seasoned trainees who are new to rings and/or parallettes are encouraged to begin with Level 1 as well, as the specific demands of training with these apparatuses can take some getting used to.

In Level 2 — Unbreakable, you will follow a split routine. Your training will be split into two complementary workouts, both of which will be performed twice per week. The split routine allows for more total training volume without increasing the length of each individual training session. As with Level 1, you will progress to more challenging workouts every two weeks. Again, these workouts should not require more than 50 minutes of your time, and may require less. Experienced trainees may start right in with Level 2, provided they are able to pass the test at the end of Level 1.

In Level 3 — Indestructible, you will also follow a split routine. As with the previous levels, you will progress to more challenging workouts every two weeks. Again, these workouts should not require more than 50 minutes of your time, and may require less.

At the end of each level there is a test to determine whether or not you are ready to advance to the Next Level. If you pass the test, you move ahead. If not, then repeat the last two weeks and test again.

After you’ve completed the final level, there are several "Next" Next Level exercises with which you can experiment. Your odyssey is not over until you decide you’ve gone as far as you’re willing to go…

Rated 10/10 Everyone who trains should have this one
By Agnieszka Staron / Krakow, Malopolska, Poland

I've got all of the Kavadlo brothers' books, I love all of them and I read them regularly. They're all very thorough and professional. "Next Level Strenght" blew me away. It has got absolutely everything one needs to fullfil their dream of being stronger and better. It's a great source of inspiration in my work as a personal trainer. I will definitely use all of this knowledge in my own trainings, too.

Rated 10/10 Outstanding!
By Chris Gigliot / Orlando, Florida, Usa

I work from home and am a bit of a minimalist, so I was interested in a challenging bodyweight exercise program I could do with limited equipment and time requirements, and Next Level Strength is exactly what I was looking for and more!

The program and progressions as outlined in the book take all the guesswork out of learning new skills on rings and parallettes. I'm much stronger than when I started, and my mobility and flexibility are much improved!

Highly recommend this book to anyone looking to learn new skills while improving their level of fitness.

Rated 10/10 A masterpiece
