    I know this is slightly off topic. I got a question for you: Can you explain your ‘position’ when it comes to getting ‘professional help’ (in person, print or internet) to teach you body weight and body weight assisted moves.

    I would presume/expect they could assist with information regarding: Body position, form, additional weight, appropriate/necessary fatigue, best practice routines- just to name a few.

    I am interested to hear your thoughts on another open ended question 😉

      Nothing comes close to the quality of getting one-on-one guidance. Five minutes with a trainer can do more for you than reading an entire book. If they know what they are talking about, you will benefit in ways you never imagined.
