Overcoming Gravity: A Systematic Approach to Gymnastics and Bodyweight Strength is a 542 page comprehensive guide to the most overlooked, yet most powerful elements of strength training.

In this book, Steven Low takes the reader on a journey through logically and systematically constructing a strength oriented bodyweight workout routine. With a highly systematic and scientific approach, Steven delves into the exercise physiology behind strength training and how to adequately prepare the body for the rigors of bodyweight training. Using the same rigor and attention to detail, Overcoming Gravity also includes recommendations for all bodyweight athletes concerning health and injury management. Unlike other books on this topic, it provides extremely comprehensive sample programming to assist in the design of a well-balanced routine, including information about the proper execution of the exercises and techniques.

If you prefer your books on fitness and health to include data, science and effective recommendations, then Overcoming Gravity is an ideal addition to your library.

Note: this book contains no bodyweight leg exercises, or primary gymnastics work (cartwheels, tumbling, swings, giants, etc.). It is devoted solely toward upper body strength and skill development with gymnastics exercises.

"I'll say it straight: Overcoming Gravity is the best book money can buy on gymnastics and bodyweight strength--period!This book reads like what it is--an absolute labor of love, an all-encompassing masterpiece written by a bona fide genius in the field. This book wasn't written to make a ton of money. There is so much advanced training information in this huge volume that it could have easily been watered-down and split into ten books...maybe more. Overcoming Gravity has the power to change the way you train--not just for a handful of workouts, but for an entire lifetime.Buy this book!"
