Breaking Parallel is a detailed body movement and strength-training guide designed to challenge your limits and develop solid, functional strength. Created by Jeff Tucker (director for the CrossFit Gymnastics Trainer Course), the book offers hundreds of bodyweight movements rooted in elemental gymnastics, as well as numerous fitness programs that have proven successful for CrossFit athletes worldwide. Most fitness books focus on achieving one specific goal, such as lifting heavy weights or running long distances. Breaking Parallel is designed to develop the type of strength that allows you to do a broad assortment of tasks for a prolonged period of time—the type of strength needed in everyday life. Breaking Parallel is more than a book filled a series of movements. It teaches you the elements of basic gymnastics, allowing you to breakdown inefficient movement from a visual perspective. However, in addition to supplying you with the 'gymnastics eye,' Breaking Parallel also teaches you how to fix a broad assortment of problems, including those that arise from strength issues, mobility issues, coordination issues, and issues caused by a lack of spatial awareness. Whether you are a coach, an athlete, or someone simply wanting to get into better shape, Breaking Parallel will not only teach you how to execute an array of highly functional movements, but also how to perfect them. The book includes: il - Conditioning drills for developing basic strength. il - Mobility exercises needed for sports and daily life. il - Handstand exercises that develop balance and upper body strength. il - Ring drills that allow you to develop stability control. il - Hollow form techniques for developing solid core strength. il - Parallette exercises for lower body development, core strength, and arm strength. il - Inverted forms for developing keen spatial awareness.

TWO HEALTH AND FITNESS EBOOKS IN ONE!!!Over the past few years, Crossfit has gotten the curiosity of many for being one of the most effective workout regimens in the modern age-and well, that is actually not far from the truth. In fact, Crossfit is considered as both a competitive fitness sport and exercise philosophy ever since its inception in 2000. Founders Lauren Jenal and Greg Glassman believed that with the combination of techniques used in gymnastics, powerlifting, plyometrics, weightlifting, and high intensity interval training, amongst others, one would be able to reach his/her ideal body weight, and be a more disciplined person, as well. What makes it effective is that every day, a person could complete a WOD (Workout of the Day), which means that there will be a lot of progress-and little by little, he/she will reap the benefits of their workouts! With the help of this book, you'll learn why Crossfit is amazing, how you'd be able to get started in the regimen, and learn a daily routine as well as advanced WODs that you could try!
