1. I was lucky to find this great book in a library book sale several years ago for…yes,$1. This is a excellent book and I refer to it often. I would strongly suggest to anyone out there to grab a copy of this book at such a great deal. You WILL NOT BE disappointed.

  2. Thank you Ross,in times of crisis people show their true colors,While some out there are cashing in on other’s misfortune, we also have decent human beings like yourself doing what you can to ease other’s burdens.All of your books are really good and this in particular has so many good ideas it should be in every serious physical culture library.For those who do not yet have it, take this opportunity from this generous offer.Hope you and your family stay well Ross.

  3. You are the real deal, Ross, unlike so many other so-called “gurus”. I have your Never Gymless book, and it offers all one would need to attain and maintain fitness to whatever level you choose to do so. At a time of crisis, you are taking a step forward to help your fellow men and women. Godspeed in all that you do.

    1. The file is delivered as a PDF which can be read on a kindle (although it is not formatted for a kindle). I do have a few PDFs saved to my own kindle (it’s doable).

  4. Thank you Ross! Been following you since 2007.
    I’m a PE instructor and head football coach in Southern California.
    I will be using it as a teaching tool and reference point for my students and players.
    I am supremely grateful for all that you have done and will continue to do in these uncertain times.
    Thank you for your inspiration and innovation.

  5. I purchased a physical copy of this book many years ago and it’s been a staple in my library ever since. Thank you for doing this!

  6. Right on Ross! I have been using you medicine ball workouts for years, made all my own balls. Thanks for such a generous offer. I have shared it far and wide.

    never thought at age 42 i would be doing handstands down the stairs in my house …
    thanks Ross.

  8. Ross –

    I bought this book about ten years ago. I have used it, and the principles that I learned from it, every day since. I used to say that it was the best $29.99 that I ever spent. It is still worth every penny.

    Thank you for writing it, and thank you for making it available.

  9. Ross you absolute hero, was coming on here to order the physical book to get out of this thing stronger than when I went in, so generous of you to do this in these crazy times. I’ve just sent a photo to my mates telling them to get on here, this is the deal of a lifetime! Hope you’re keeping well & can’t wait to see yourself & Katie’s next outing. All the best from Eire, Dan

  10. Wow, this is a ridiculous deal at a buck and obviously the result of a lot of work. I’ve been “training” (lifting) for 40 years but recently found myself kind of floundering and now I’m restoked. There is a “blessing box” in my yard, some people put food and essentials in, some take them out. It’s getting lots of both recently. I will go to the dollar store tomorrow and buy 100 bucks worth of prepacked foods and make a contribution sparked by yours. Thanks.

  11. Dear Ross,

    A big fan of your continues improvement and learning process and delivery to all of us!! I recently bought never Gymless book (actually it’s a gift from your end so Thank you), as well read Ultimate training. I have made my sand bag (actually 2 of them) and decided to start with. Since I’m not a professional athlete I have decided to start with basic strength workouts with the bag from the book and wanted to ask, if this the right approach. My aim is to build strength, while keeping away from injuries (I’m 42 and have some back injuries with kettlebell workouts – swings with one arm). Appreciate your feedback and advice. Thanks for your time and efforts once again! Cheers and stay safe

    1. Thanks Ivo,

      Yes, you can certainly focus on building a strength foundation first. Stay consistent and don’t get ahead of yourself (particularly with your history of back injuries). Slow and steady wins the race.


      1. Thank you very much Ross, for your prompt answer!
        I will go with 2 days of strength and 2 days of conditioning trainings (I jump on rope daily – but still very beginner level) and 1/2 days outdoor pull ups/dips (will try the pyramid approach).

        I wish you exciting weekend with lot of sun and fun:)


  12. Hi Ross. I appreciate the offer, this is really great for people trying to stay in shape at home. I paid the $1 via PayPal, but I have yet to receive the product. Would you mind looking into that for me? Thank you! Stay safe

  13. Ross,

    You are an outstanding athlete, very smart and generous.

    I already have your books and was surprised you sold its for such a low price, whereas some “gurus” sell low quality 10 pages PDF for $99. And now to help other people during this hard time, you almost offer a great book.

    Each time I see your videos, I am so impressed by your physical condition!

    Stay safe, and I wish you the best.

  14. Is there a kindle version of your book? I already own it but would love to have it on my phone for on the fly?

  15. I purchased this book many years ago along with the other old school stuff in the mid 2000’s, but lost books in moving transitions. The plethora of knowledge and material in this book helped me get in the best shape of my life at the time in leu of my beliefs in needing a “gym.” $1, thanks man!

  16. Hi Ross, this was a remarkably generous offer. I should thanked you sooner.
    The reason I’m writing is because last night I watched a video a few times which rings true of what you’ve been long saying. I subscribe to several jump rope youtube channels and one thing which has become clear is that many channels are selling or promoting jump ropes and related accessories. The video I watched was so refreshing since it said high priced jump ropes and gear isn’t need at all and points to the origins of both boxing and skipping. Although you’re no doubt super busy, I thought you might like to see the video:


  17. Great book, I just read it. How would you incorporate your boxing/mma/bjj training into the 50 day split schedule? Would they be on the same days or on the off days?

    1. Thank you.

      As for the question, the sample plans in each of the books serve as visual demonstrations of the principles outlined in the text. There’s no one size fits all approach for anyone, particularly fighters. Speaking as a professional boxing coach, I don’t think I’ve ever had two fighters do the same thing. There’s certainly no book or program that should could be universally applied to any individual’s routine.

      With that said, most of the sample routines/workouts are brief so can often be included without interrupting with the more important sport training. For example, after sparring, one could finish with a bodyweight circuit on a given day. Just keep in mind that what makes sense for a fighter will depend on needs, ability, sparring schedule, competition schedule, experience, etc. There is no one size fits all approach.

      1. Hey Ross… I bought your books years ago. I am 62 now and still follow some of the workouts, of course I scale everything to my ability as I would to the students I teach in my Physical Education classes.

        Stay safe and have a great Holiday!!
