Did this video help you?

Arnetta Ambriz: I think you need to take some time and go to Unflexal to learn about workouts.

Paul Bruce: I used to be front-squatting a decent amount of weight on a barbell. Now that I'm starting with calisthenics, I'm doing simple bodyweight full squats (9-12 reps, 4 sets), trying to be mindful of form (particularly glute activation) and trying to increase the ROM when I can.  And the next day, I was INCREDIBLY sore. It's amazing what calisthenics can do for the lower body. And when you're progressing through lower body calisthenics, you focus on unilateral work, which demands MUCH greater balance.

Frank Bohne: Hey Al. The founder of Crossfit created a paragraph of what Crossfit is in "100" words. I think it's time for "PCC in 100 Words."

Jerome O'Neill: Al, what exercises in your opinion would help achieve a tuck planche?

ZoAd: Hi Al, I like your video and your cool attitude. I have a question, I successful no false grip muscle-up and slow muscle-up (15 seconds bottom to the top) at the ring, but nothing at the straight bar, at present I train with straight bar dips and explosive pull-ups, any tips ? Thank you for your video.

Menza Boy: Hi, Al! Greetings from Hungary. I like your videos and your positive attitude. Here's my question. Which is the better exercise for the one arm pull-ups? Doing more two handed or uneven pull-ups or doing the negative phase of the one arm pull-up? 

xxColtyxx: Hey Al, do you know any exercises that fix bad posture ? Specifically the kind of posture  that one develops from sitting too long in front of the computer. Will bridges,L-holds, and Twist holds be enough ? Thanks !

: Hey Al, I have a question on pistol squat form. It seems that whenever I perform Pistol Squats, I am shifting most of my bodyweight over the leg that I'm using, but in your videos it appears that you are not making that shift. Is shifting weight bad? or is it just a less difficult variation? All the best, Max 

Moving free Norman: Hi Al! I´m Norman, your greatest fan from Germany :-) As to diet...What do you think about protein drinks shortly after a strength workout? did you notice any difference as to regeneration or building mass faster?

Rain Chua: Hi Al, this question struck my mind. Does pistol squats need good form as well? For e.g. usually for squats we recommend that our knees should not be in front of the feet (when you bend) as it is bad for the bones in the long run, does this apply to pistol squat as well?

Fran Gustavo: Who the hell asked Al anyway? 

blackjohnny0: Weight are also dangerous. I have spine problems because of weight training and yes, i was doing warm up, stretching and i was workingout with good technique.

Darth Tenebrous: Hey Al, are there any other leg exercises harder than the pistol squat? Could you possibly reduce your leverage by leaning backwards, similar to a planche or front lever?

Aaron Daciuk: I am going to graduate from nursing school in a month, and I can't wait to finally have the time to work out again! I am definitely going to use your Stretching Your Limits and Convict Conditioning to lose all of this nursing school fat! Thank you for all of this great information!

KlynchMusic: I love your vids al but id love to see you frown. You could have a world record for smiling the longest!

Leo Hhw: First!

Derian Tungka: I JUST finished my jump rope workout and then this video came up

Dukesy90: A buddy of mine lent me SS17 for the evening for an indoor CQC game, honestly my main weapon in a G&G M16 RAIDER with red dot sight and a flashlight, I found myself transitioning to the pistol even when my primary was still wasn't out of ammo or having a stoppage. I plan to get one soon.
