I've always been in good shape but this is propelling me to another level. I've seen pretty remarkable results in the short time I've been following his programs. You'll use props for a good portion of the exercises (e.g., the side of a sofa/coffee table, doors, chairs, etc.) but I've been able to find something in my apartment that works for everything so far. You don't need much space for them. There's a push up thread over in the Football Cafe and the results I saw from just that compelled me to find more similar exercises. This is a treasure trove of them.
Don't expect this to be easy. The Basic Program will push you. And I can guarantee you won't be strong enough to do many of the advanced exercises right away.
