The Amazing Balancing Man By David Linden This is the personal story of one person balancing pursuing his dreams and putting bread on the table. Born during the Great Depression to a barber and a homemaker in Albany, New York, David’s prospects were not very bright. However, his parents, who immigrated from Russia and Austria shortly after World War I, instilled in him the belief that you could do anything you wanted, as long as you did the work needed to prepare for it. He left high school before graduating to work and bring in a little extra income to help out the family. This was his first balancing act: finish high school or help the family. It wasn’t a lot of money, but it helped stretch the family budget a bit, and taught him valuable lessons about doing every job as well as he could and always trying to do better. David, it turns out, was an excellent salesman, regularly winning bonuses and recognition for tripling and quadrupling a department’s sales. Whenever he needed to put bread on the table or a roof over his head, David could always get a job as a salesman. He was very good at it, but was not particularly passionate about sales. As a teenager, David enjoyed participating in all sports and started developing a love of physical fitness, reveling in what he could get his body to do – and enjoying the cheers of the crowd when he made a great play. It was while learning and practicing diving and some basic gymnastics at a local park with a pool that he started becoming aware of the strength and gratification he received from cheers and applause, especially from the attractive girls. When the Ringling Brothers, Barnum & Bailey Circus was came to town and he saw Ove Unus “The Talk of the Universe” perform a one-finger handstand and heard the thunderous applause, David knew that was what he passionately wanted to do – perform acrobatics for live audiences! He taught himself the art, building up the necessary physical and mental skills, watching others perform, and studying pictures of acts to figure out how to do them. Along the way he recruited others to join him, met and became friends with other performers, first in the Albany area and then at Muscle Beach, California, and around the Western Hemisphere. David performed with many circuses around the United States and Canada. In 1976 he joined the Harlem Globetrotters for a five month tour of the United States, Canada, and South America, performing his acrobatic and plate-spinning acts during half time. During one show in South America, he had a major fall which left him nearly paralyzed from his waist down. In only five weeks, he rehabilitated himself and rejoined the tour. He continued performing acrobatics – and selling shoes and fitness equipment as needed to put bread on the table – for another twenty years. In his seventies, he retired from acrobatics and tried retiring, but couldn’t stand the quiet, so he re-invented himself as a stand-up comedian. The mental and physical preparation for appearing before an audience and the applause for a performance well done are as essential to David’s well-being as having blood pump through his veins. Without the former, the latter is of little importance. Ultimately the story is about balancing one’s inner passions that define personal success against society’s measures of success.

The 15-Second Handstand: A Beginners Guide is the ANSWER to the questions we all really have about the handstand. It is the ONLY book on the market to address the big handstand problem: fear. When learning to handstand, you are normally dealing with a fear of falling over; and The 15-Second handstand lays out a progression that conquers fear, builds strength and ENABLES you to HIT YOUR GOAL in record time. Just look at what others are saying about it... "I basically couldn't put the book down. It really tremendous. I get the feeling that you REALLY know what you're talking about. It's really neat the way you present the 6 Challenges right away, then leave all the WHY for later. Plus, you really clarified for me what I need to pay attention to: locked elbows and active shoulders. And getting past my fear by learning to bail. The rest is gravy for going from 15s to one minute. I never had this feeling before of knowing what to do." - Dan R. "I found the book very clear and simple, never boring. It is perfect for people who want to know why and how something works, but the step-by-step progression is perfect for people who don't care about the details." - Giacomo B. "I finished your book in one day I like it, it's very helpful for me and the progression is very good I changed my training following your progression and trained much more face to the wall, every day the 'holy' five minutes. I trained 4 months before, but had fear to move to freestanding, without any wall." - Dr. Jurgen Fohlinger "As a kid I remember my father standing on his hands and walking up and then down a flight of stairs on his hands. At 67 years old I doubt I will ever be able to duplicate that feat, but thanks to Chris Salvato's systematic approach I'm now able to stand freestanding] on my hands for a few seconds (and get off my hands without destroying myself and nearby furniture) a feat that has eluded me for years. Using his program I'm looking forward to extending that time into minutes." - Marshall R. Peterson "Chris Salvato did a really good job with The 15-Second Handstand book. You can start your way into the progressions within 10 minutes of reading, and learn the why and how later through the book. The finer points of technique are spot on and prevent bad habits from developing (bent arms, sagging shoulders). Also, the pirouette progression makes you understand the act of bailing, and saves you from having to rollout, which may be troublesome depending on the kind of surface you are training in. This book is definitely going to help in building a handstand addiction." - Lucas Serur "This is the third or fourth handstand book I bought, and the first one I have liked. The other ones were complete garbage. This one stands out by having a straightforward progression towards a clearly defined final goal, and no detours. There are clear, realistic targets for every step. I love how everything is sliced into small, doable pieces, such as your advice on adding the four form cues one at a time. Best of all I liked that there's a step in the progression dedicated to bailing. I'm actually starting to lose my fear of falling now."- Barry L. "I have not read any other books about the handstand. This book is very easy to follow. It is also very detailed about what to do, and what not to do. It convinces me that it is possible for me to learn it." - Anders I.

In Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism, the word yoga means “spiritual discipline.” Modern yoga is thought of mainly in the context of its postures, but the actual meaning of yoga goes much deeper than that. Though its exact history is unknown, the first recorded instance appears in ancient Shamanism, a religion that involved healing its community members, among other functions. Throughout history, yoga has developed and adapted depending on its practicing members. While its original focus was applying and understanding the world, its focus was later changed to the self, with self-enlightenment being the ultimate goal. Later, the poses and meditation became critical elements in practicing yoga, a development introduced by Buddhist teachings. Yoga has many interpretations, and it has many teachers. From ancient yogis such as Buddha to more modern experts such as B. K. S. Iyengar, there is much wisdom to be gleaned from these pages, and there is much that can be discarded. As many say in the yoga world, if something does not work for you, then it is not true for you. There have been countless yogis and yoga experts throughout history, delving into the deepest meanings of yoga as well as scratching its most shallow surface. As readers will discover from this inspirational collection of yoga wisdom, there is no one way to do yoga, see yoga, or feel yoga.

A story of inspiration and transformation for the really desperate housewife—now a TV series from the creator of Sex and the City, starring Sutton Foster and Hilary Duff! She’s old enough to be his mother. Alice has always looked young for her age, even with her graying hair and her dowdy New Jersey housewife style. Make that ex-housewife: Now that her husband’s gone and her daughter is grown, Alice is in desperate need of a whole new life. So she lets her best friend Maggie, a hip New York City artist, transform her on New Year’s Eve. Soon, thanks to the wonders of hair dye and tight jeans, Alice looks really young, as one night in a Manhattan bar confirms. At midnight, she kisses a boy who was in diapers when she was in high school. She’s having too much fun to care. The white lie Alice tells Josh gets her thinking that if no one asks her age, she doesn’t have to tell. So she applies for a job she had briefly before becoming a full-time mom—and gets it. Meanwhile, Josh is falling head over heels for Alice, who’s just way cooler than girls his age. He figures she’s about twenty-nine—and for the first time since she was twenty-nine, or possibly ever, Alice feels that life is ripe with possibility. Unfortunately one possibility is that she’s gonna get caught. Challenging the adage that the truth will set you free, Younger is a hilarious and insightful story that proves that you’re only as young as you feel.

 How to Train As If Your VERY LIFE Depended on Your Degree of REAL Strength, Power and Toughness  Most physical training systems are designed for the domesticated human animal. That is to say, for us humans who live lives of such relative security that we cultivate our strength and power more out of pride and for a sense of accomplishment than out of an absolute need to survive in the wild. The professional athlete hones his body to function well in a sports event-rather than to emerge safe from a life-or-death struggle. And even those in our military and LEO rely more on the security of their weapons and armor than on their own personal, raw power and brute strength to carry the day.  There remains one environment where exuding the necessary degree of authoritative strength and power can mean the difference between life or death: the maximum security prison. In maximum security, the predator preys on the weak like we breathe air. Intimidation is the daily currency. You either become a professional victim or you develop that supreme survival strength that signals the predator to stay at bay.  Paul Wade spent 19 years in hell holes like San Quentin, Angola and Marion. He entered this world a gangly, terrorized weakling and he graduated to final freedom, pound-for-pound one of the strongest humans on the planet. Paul Wade dedicated his prison life to the cultivation of that supreme survival strength. And ironically, it is in America's prisons that we can find some of the great, lost secrets of how to get immensely powerful and strong. Paul Wade mined these secrets as if his life depended on it-and of course in many ways it did.  Finally free, Paul Wade pays his debt to society-not just with the horrors of his years in the hole-but with the greatest gift he could possibly give us: a priceless set of progressions that can take ANYONE who has the will from abject weakling to strength specimen extraordinaire.  InÂConvict ConditioningÂPaul Wade has laid out a logical and effective zero to hero progression in key bodyweight strength exercises and presented a solid training philosophy. Get this book. -Pavel Tsatsouline, author of The Naked Warrior  Convict ConditioningÂgives honor and respect toÂbody-weightÂtraining.ÂI feel Convict ConditioningÂprovides the progression,ÂprecisionÂand clarity that is necessary toÂcombatÂour cultural decline in simple bodyÂknowledge. -Gray Cook,ÂMSPT, OCS, CSCS, Functional Movement Systems, author of Body in Balance  Convict Conditioning is a fantastic text crammed with solid information, and tons of vital nuggets and powerful insights that when followed will pack your frame with rock-hard, functional muscle. You provide the body, Convict Conditioning gives you the rest in a highly readable, easy-to-understand format that teaches you what to do and how to do it. As a guy who has written extensively on exercise, I highly recommend this book. -Loren Christensen, author of Solo Training and The Fighter's Body.  Coach Wade has laid out a set of progressions in Convict Conditioning that can lead to mastery of the big 6 bodyweight exercises and you would be wise to listen. ÂThis is knowledge proven in extreme conditions. So respect the progressions and put in your time-you'll be stronger for it. -Brett Jones Master RKC, CSCS, CK-FMS  Outstanding! By far the most innovative fitness book in years. Many talk about mastering your body weight yet Convict Conditioning actually delivers a blueprint for anyone, regardless of your current fitness. The training progressions are genius.   -Tim Larkin, Master Close Combat Instructor If you are a serious student of bodyweight exercise and physical culture, you must get this book. -Craig Ballantyne, Turbulence Training  I LOVE IT. Convict Conditioning is probably the best compilation of callisthenic exercises and training progressions I have seen. Coach Wade goes to the heart of true training with correct biomechanics, kinesiology and training progressions that so many in the word of physical training just seem to miss these days. Bravo Coach, bravo, an epic book that deserves to be in the library of all who love the world of strength.   -Mark Reifkind, Master RKC Instructor, Girya Kettlebell Training  Convict Conditioning is jam packed with the most powerful bodyweight training information I have ever come across. It's the book I WISH I had in my hands when I was a competitive wrestler, BUT, even more important to me is that I can pass on this knowledge to my clients AND my son and daughter when they grow up.

Thirty-seven million people visit Las Vegas every year. It's a city that offers to fulfil all your desires, without any repercussions. What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas... right? But what happens to the people who have to grow up there? Children of Las Vegas tells ten of their stories, recorded by award-winning author Timothy O'Grady: tales of overdoses, desert shoot-outs, suicides, casinos, desert air and broken dreams. They include the son of a casino owner whose father gambled their fortune away and died broke and alone; a mother of five whose partner kidnapped her children and is now a meth addict, living in the tunnels within sight of the glittering lights of the city; and a 23-year-old star performer, turned male prostitute. These are the children of the card dealers and the cocktail shakers, the jugglers and the dancers, the limo drivers and the wheel spinners. These are the children whose parents don't come home until they've left for school. These are the children whose parents might not come home at all. Their stories are interspersed with short essays about the city by Timothy and portraits by highly acclaimed photographer Steve Pyke. There are horror stories in every city, but these things aren't just happening in Las Vegas... they're happening because of it.

Find more similar titles and get a free catalog at www.StrongmanBooks.com The classic book on Muscle Control from one of the best ever at the art, Maxick, the oldtime strongman. If you're looking to develop tremendous will power, control over your muscles, the ability to tense and relax at will then this book is a must. Born as a small child and attacked with rickets, he shortly became a robust young lad through his practice of muscle control. He went on to become one of the strongest people of his time, while maintaining a very small bodyweight. Here are Maxick's Amazing Feats Of Strength at a Weight of less than 147lbs: Right Hand Military Press, 112 pounds Right Hand Snatch, 165 pounds Right Hand Swing with Dumbbell, 150 pounds. Right Hand Jerk, 240 pounds Two Hands Military Press, 230 pounds Two Hands Clean and Jerk with Barbell, 272 pounds. Two Hands Continental Jerk with Barbell, 340 pounds In a contest at finger-pulling, in which Maxick was "unbeatable," Maxick could pull a 200-pound opponent clear across the table that separated the two men. He pressed van Diggelen (185 pounds) overhead 16 times with his right arm, while holding in his left hand a glass of beer full to the brim, without spilling a drop. Earlier that same day, he had pressed Fred Storbeek (205 pounds), who was then the heavyweight British Empire Boxing Champion, 11 times with his right arm. Holding van Diggelen aloft on one arm, Maxick ran up two flights of stairs with him and then ran down the two flights. Then standing on his hands, he in that position ran up the two flights and down again. Pretty amazing stuff right? And Maxick attributes his strength to muscle control. Plus here is what Maxick has to say regarding the Mind-Muscle connection: "THE SERIOUS student of muscle-control will soon become aware of the fact that his willpower had become greater, and his mental faculties clearer and capable of increased concentration. Thus it will be observed that the controlling of the muscles reacts upon the mind and strengthens the mental powers in exactly the same proportion that the control of the muscles strengthens the body and limbs." Here are the subject headings found within this book: Myself My Early Years Attacked by Rickets A Weakling Among the Robust A Momentous Happening Muscle-Control My Health Improves Work, but nourishment Contraction How Muscle Control was Revealed to Me How Mechanical Exercise May Hinder Muscle Development The Case of the Stonemason Muscle-Relaxation What is Meant by Muscle Control Muscle-Binding I Become a Champion Passive Condition of Relaxation I Take Up Weight-Lifting I Win an Open Championship All Three Championships My First Pupil I Come to England Maxick's Lifting Will-Power and Muscle-Control A Few Hints You'll also find 21 exercises that cover the body form the head to the toes.
