In prison, people discover new things and improve themselves in many ways, in my case I decided to make use of my time and channel my energy into exercise and fitness – studying to become a personal trainer.
With limited access to the gym, I began working out in my cell, soon realising there are only so many standard press ups or sit ups a person can do without getting bored or hitting a plateau.
Like many people who are interested in their personal fitness, I only knew the basics of training, using weights and cardio. After scouring the library looking for sources to help write these programs, I soon realised that information was very limited, barely skimming the surface of what I was looking for. In fact I was unable to find any other book that contained suitable exercises designed specifically for use in a small space.
Eventually I put pen to paper, thinking of various exercises for each body part, writing the descriptions and drawing the diagrams. This lengthy process would eventually become the blueprint for this book.
This book is the outcome of my personal journey and I hope in some way it can help you on yours too.
