Bodyweight Training Mastery with Al Kavadlo

Posted by Jason Ferruggia

Al-KavadloOver the last few years Al Kavadlo has become known as one of the top go-to experts in the world when it comes to bodyweight training. If you want to get in great shape using nothing but chins, dips and squats then Al is your man.
