The One-arm Handstand Push-up invitational…Page Only those with a burning passion for building bodyweight strength should proceed with body lever training.
Are you that man of passion? If not, step aside—you have more than enough already to aim for and contend with. If yes, then please proceed into the dizzy realms of the hyper-achiever…. How to develop formidable strength in your core and enviable strength in your arms, chest, back and abs…Page The Elbow Lever, hard enough, but the perfect progression toward a full Lever…Page The very challenging feat of the One-arm Elbow Lever—subtle tips for best success…Page The Back Lever: The High Angle Back Lever: The Bent Knee Back Lever: The Front Lever: The Counter-weighted Front Lever: Al begins this chapter with a quote from Gandhi: It comes from an indomitable will".
Now this I love—and never was truer word spoken than when confronting the one-in, or some say the one-in,00 achievement of the One-arm Pull-up. Al clearly possesses that indomitable will, because he owns the One-arm Pull-up. Want to join him in the rare air where champions roam?

So, how do you organize your newfound training knowledge into the most effective routines? Of course, there is no one answer and your mileage may vary for any particular workout plan, but Al finishes with what has worked for him over the years.
The 5 Levels of workout routine in bar athletics and basic program design…Pages — So how do you rank? As a Coach and bodyweight training addict I loved all the variations shown so I can now learn from Al.
This book is far beyond just pull ups and there are countless exercises for upper body and abs. My only wish was that there were more workouts listed by Al but I also understand that the way Al trains is very instinctive when he trains himself or amongst his friends. The plus side is that Al covers what is probably EVERY exercise he knows of, uses and teaches others, breaking down proper techniques, regressions and progressions.
If you're a fan of bodyweight training, between this book and Convict Conditioning you can turn your body into a deadly weapon!!! This is a fantastic book-period! Al has provided some basic cues which have made my chin ups and leg raises much easier. You dont have to do all the moves-you can pick a couple and run with them.
Al shows some great progressions and tons of different movements. I could go on and on but the best thing would be to download the book-you wont regret it. Originally I had the ebook version—which is good, but the large printed paperback was really worth the wait. The large photos to show exactly what Al Kavadlo describes in the text.
Not only is the book incredibly informative and entertaining, it's literally a lot of fun to read. Several times I caught myself grinning—alone—while reading the book. It's hard to sit still and read parts of it, so go ahead and take it with you to the park, or where you are able to work with the very basics like a pull up bar. I've even been practicing parts of the elbow lever progression described in the book on the edge of a very heavy picnic table.
Al's book is extremely liberating in that you can easily see how a workout can happen anywhere with little to no equipment.
Thanks to this fun volume, I've already improved my basic pull up, am edging towards a muscle up, and have added a few fun variants the "crowd pleasing" archer pull up immediately comes to mind to the mix. My clients have also benefited, especially those working towards their first pull up. Having the book handy can also allow me to point out the concepts while we're discussing them.
You'll probably start looking at your neighborhood a little differently as well—after checking out Raising the Bar, I've started to see many potential places for impromptu dips, finger tip pull ups, clutch flags, elbow levers and more. Men and women of a variety of shapes and sizes are pictured throughout the book, which is encouraging and inspiring as well ladies, there's some serious eye-candy in there too.
In all seriousness, I look forward to incorporating more and more of the exercises from Raising the Bar into my own training, and with that of my clients. I have to give a lot of props to Al for putting this book out! It is refreshing to see the back to basics calisthenics coming back into fashion because the truth is, it has always and will always be the best and cheapest way to work out. No frills, just hard core awesome moves and progressions. This book will help the beginner get their first pull up or leg raise, or it can take the already athlete to the next level.
I highly recommend this book, and I think the work that Al is doing is inspiring and highly motivational! Okay for all of you that think pull ups are basic easy, whatever type movements, think again! Al Kavadlo really turns it up on this book or should I say pulls it up!
I love how he makes pull ups seem so achievable and the variety he shows really demonstrates why pull ups don't have to be boring. In my opinion I'd rather do any type of pull up than any lat pull down or row, but for those who only do weighted resistance exercises, pick this up because it will surely pull you through your exercise plateaus.
Also, the sections on handstands he demonstrates is worth the download alone. Al knows how to grab a readers interests and makes you want to put the book down and try his progressions out. Amazing book! But with Al Kavadlo in your corner, you will be well on your way to perfect headbanger pull-ups, Korean dips, and maybe even standing muscle overs. Al is not just a seasoned veteran of calisthenics, but he is truly an excellent teacher.
In Raising the Bar, the Definitive Guide to Upper Body Calisthenics, he explains the subtle nuances and fun variations of the most important movements, from dips all the way to muscle ups and even the coveted one-arm pull-up. Raising the Bar is packed full of not only exciting techniques for advanced practitioners but also adaptations that allow beginners to enter the rewarding world of upper body calisthenics.
The Definitive Guide is indisputably the most fun and easy to read instruction manual in fitness to date. Get your copy now. Raising the Bar provides both exercises known to most fitness enthusiasts as well as some unique to bar athletics.
These unique exercises are where the real training gold of this book lies. That being said there are many exercises that go beyond fitness and enter the realm bar sports.
So if this book is going to be a good fit for people depends on their personal goals. For someone who just wants to gain physical capacity this book may not be the best choice. But for those who want to take their training beyond being a workout Raising the Bar will do that for them.
The only addition I would I wish this book had was an expanded section on program design but for those with a solid foundation in body weight training this should not pose a problem.
If someone needs such a foundation Convict Conditioning will provide that foundation an more. This is an awesome book. Pictures are great and the information Al provides is really great. If you are into body weight training then this book is a great asset to add to your library.
I've read the whole book and find myself going back time and again to check something out. Since I got the book, I have been practicing my hand stands and was able to do some hand stand push ups in about 2 weeks. Keep up the good work Al. Al also has some great tutorials on his website: This book is easily in the top ten of bodyweight strength training books, Al's progressions are brilliant especially on the levers and Muscle Ups.
As a personal trainer, I've spent years convincing my clients that they don't need any fancy, overpriced, useless junk to get a great workout.
The greatness is within the simplicity. I've watched every trainer in the area mess up the concept of functional fitness with their "ideas".
Balancing on stacks of bosu balls, using the other leg to pull on rubber bands, one arm using a shaky weight, and the other arm doing curl to presses with a half pound pink dumbbell, all while balancing a medicine ball on your nose sounds good in theory, but at the end of the day, nothing gets accomplished.
Al, just like everything else Dragon Door publishes, manages to take the simplest of tools, and make it the most important. They're in our DNA.
Not like all the machines and circus tricks. Al has been a huge inspiration to me for quite sometime. This goes far beyond simple pullups and dips. Thank you Al, for writing such an awesome book.
