Solitary Fitness- Charles Bronson


From “Britain’s Most Violent Prisoner” comes a witty, insightful and straight forward approach to fitness. As the title of most violent prisoner may suggest, the actions of Bronson may not have been the most social…hence his long spells in solitary confinement. So how is it possible to maintain such high levels of strength, fitness and conditioning when you have maybe nothing more than a bed in a box room?

  1. Hello! I know this is somewhat off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does operating a well-established website like yours require a massive amount work?

    I am completely new to writing a blog but I do write in my diary everyday.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can share my own experience and views online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for brand
    new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!

    • How much time it takes depends on what content you are wanting to post. This website has several writers contributing currently. If you’re writing about personal experiences then it shouldn’t take so long to do. If you want to write a post about something more complex then it can take more time to research, link other articles and put up videos/ pictures. I hope this helps!
