Review by

In an age obsessed with beauty at all cost, where that epitome of defiance of nature called body building reigns supreme, why not take fitness advice from a psychopathic prisoner instead? One with a healthy hate of the "how big is your bicep?" freaks.Charles Bronson is famous for climbing with hostages to the roofs of prisons, breaking bulletproof glasses using his bare fists and jumping down from high windows just to beat someone up. He is also a terrific inspiration, seeing how he managed to do more with his life from solitary confinement than most of us do as relatively free men.
