    If it was a vote I'd say CC. Much more rounded program.
    www.back-to-primal.blogspot.com or on Facebook here

    My training journal if anyone is interested

    Be strong to be useful

    +1 for CC, although if you can afford both there's some useful info in Naked Warrior. Having said that if I could spring for just 2 books I'd have CC, and CC2.

    CC as an overall program wins hands down.
    Naked Warrior does have a lot of good discussion and id very good for technique.
    I bought CC and borrowed Naked Warrior from the library.
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

    Depends on your fitness level and training history. Naked warrior is not going to be very accessable for someone who is not already in very good shape -- the program focuses on the one-legged squat and one-arm chin-up. Convict conditioning on the other hand can be approached by just about anyone.

    You could also try Never Gymless, my personal favorite bodyweight book.

    I'm a huge fan of Convict Conditioning. I've never understood the methodology of progressive exercises before, never been able to measure any improvement before (other than number of reps), and never been this strong.

    ~robokevin is it not one leg squat and one arm pushup?

    you're right, I hadn't gotten it out in a few years. Thanks.

    I still stand by my philosophy, and would recommend CC first. Though a one-arm push up is certainly orders of magnitude easier than a one-arm chin up.

    Convict Conditioning is more rounded, yes. I think that Pavel's Naked Warrior has some excellent "secret tips" which can help you in CC as you progress. The key is in consistency and patience. -Neil
