Charles Bronson, described as “Britain’s most feared and dangerous convict”, has received rave reviews for his solitary workout book after becoming an unlikely fitness influencer.
The infamous prisoner launched his own brand of fitness supplements in 2018, which has since become extremely popular.
The book "Solitary Fitness" explains how to do exercises alone without any equipment, and has been very well received on Amazon.
With lockdown still forcing many people to stay at home, and gyms not due to reopen for several weeks, the 2002 book fills a clear niche in fitness during Covid.
One reviewer wrote: “Love this book. This is a one month workout program to build pure solitary style strength without the use of weights or any fancy equipments.
“This is NOT a stiffed up bodybuilding workout program by the way. This is for the people who REALLY want to get fit for life and increase happiness.”
Another commented: “Really interesting book and a really interesting person. It’s amazing what you can achieve like he did in such a small space!”
Describing his own fitness regimen, Bronson said that he does sit-ups, burpees, step-ups, sprints-on-the-spot, pull-ups, lunges, sparring, skipping, the plank, and frog jumps.
He also revealed that he has done squats with other prisoners on his back, writing: "Don't try this at home, but I've squatted with Iraqi hi-jackers on my back! Why not try with weights instead!?”
Bronson also said that he likes to listen to music while he is working out, as he is allowed a radio in his cell.
One of his favourite songs to listen to while working out is “I Want to Break Free” by Queen.
After initially being imprisoned for petty crime, Bronson has since racked up a formidable record.
While inside, Bronson – whose real name is Michael Peterson – has taken hostages in 10 prison sieges, attacked at least 20 prison officers, and caused £500,000 in damage in rooftop protests.
His convictions include criminal damage, wounding, GBH, false imprisonment, blackmail, and threatening to kill.
