An Overview of the Convict Conditioning System

July 25, 2012 · Posted in Sports 

This is an overview of the Convict Conditioning PDF e-book and printed book that Paul “Coach” Wade has recently created for strengthening and toughening up one’s body.

Wade pulls no punches in ridiculing the current obsession with the latest gadget device or protein powder. He knows instead from the experience gained in California’s worst prisons what it takes for one to have real-world strength and toughness.

Wade spent many years of his life in California’s worst prisons and he’s not proud of the life choices he made to wind up there. He also isn’t looking to paint himself as a “tough guy” and make prisons or criminals out to be something they’re not. He’s out to provide what he learned during those years locked up inside the Convict Conditioning system so others can get positive benefit about understanding true strength.

The book describes how much real knowledge about real strength and our potential has been lost to the public. This “lost art of strength” lives on behind locked cell doors in prisons and Convict Conditioning gets its title from that fact. Wade doesn’t want anything about prison or a criminal’s way of life to be glamorized, but wants to instead give the public an understanding of true strength as it was developed by the Strongmen in the early 20th century and with their unmatched feats to this day.

Many people think that prisoners get strong because all they do is work out with weights all day long. Wade dispels those myths and relates how weight sets and appropriate facilities are not common. What actually happens is that those that are committed to become strong and tough seek out those in the prison that have the techniques that are contained in the Convict Conditioning system.

In the first book that started it all (and has garnered highly favorable reviews around the strength and conditioning community), Wade goes through the history of strength and then methodically lays out the system. This presentation is with a careful balance of enough material and explanation so you have confidence in the logic, while still keeping it to-the-point and with step-by-step directions and fantastic full-color photographs of each exercise being demonstrated.

The Convict Conditioning system features a fairly simple and easy to understand series of exercises and progression plan. Based on the readers goals and starting point, there are also number of programs that are provided so that the right one can be picked for anyone’s specific requirements.

The reception from the community has been tremendous; including top kettlebell instructors, fire & law enforcement, top fitness athletes, martial artists, football players & wrestlers, military personnel & Special Forces operators and many other athletes of all types.
