And at times, it was a matter of life or death. He was so committed to developing muscle strength and endurance, that he spent nearly two decades developing a system of progressive exercises to develop the strength to do the one-arm push-up, one-legged squat, one-arm pull-up, hanging straight leg raise, stand-to-stand bridge, and the one-arm handstand push-up.

Masters coming together

And when he got out, he partnered with bodyweight training master Al Kavaldo to create advanced workouts based on a

progressive training strategy designed build muscle strength, slowly and safely. Kavaldo is a recognized master in bodyweight training exercises, and he’s among the few that can even execute the Big Six in Convict Conditioning.

Not for beginners

To earn your certification, you’ll have to attend the classes and complete the workouts. But then you’ve have to complete the 100-Rep Century Challenge by completing a combination of full squats, push-ups, hanging knee raises, and pull-ups. And if you can’t muscle out 100 reps before the class ends, you’ll have some time to improve. But you won’t be off the hook. Al and Danny will hunt you down after the workshop, and you’ll have the chance to complete the 100-Rep Century Challenge on live internet video.
