What is the 'Art of Minimalism"?

According to Wikipedia, the term minimalism, “describes movements in various forms of art and design, especially visual art and music, where the work is stripped down to its most fundamental features.” 

Exercise is no different. It is the art of getting the utmost from the minimum. To strip away the inessential, to find out what is left. It doesn’t mean “simple”, it means fundamental, basic and essential.

Armour of War adds basic tools, progressive challenge and a minimalist  approach to augmented body weight training. 

"The finest bodyweight book out there. Get it,.. and get ready for war!"

"Tom Furman's Armour of War is a fascinating treatise on the power of  minimalism. By incorporating his work into my routine for a short time, I am already stronger, leaner and in better condition. Thanks Tom!"
