Versa Loops Resistance Band Training

Is your workout program slowly killing you?

Sometimes, we just aren’t that smart.

We do something over and over, even though the feedback from our bodies says, “Hey knucklehead, that hurts! Knock it off!” Most of us just aren’t that good at listening to this type of feedback.

It isn’t hard—our bodies are excellent at giving appropriate feedback when necessary. We just like to hold onto maxims like, “No pain, no gain.” Sure, a little soreness is going to creep in, and you shouldn’t be afraid of that at all.

But when things start getting chronic, that’s when it’s time to take note.

What’s funny (or sad, depending on how you look at it) is a little resistance band training can go a heck of a long way in curing and, better yet, preventing this kind of pain. Read More…

Periodization And Bodyweight Workout Programs, PT. 1

It is so important to constantly mix things up. It doesn’t matter if you are training for the Olympics in weightlifting, trying to get to the elite level in powerlifting, or building functional strength and trying to look your best with bodyweight style training programs.

No matter what your personal reasons for training are, the fact remains the same—the human body adapts incredibly well and this adaptation will kill your progress.

The answer is to keep things fresh, yet still have a plan behind what you are doing.

Lebert Equalizer

Every now and then, I will try something and say to myself, “Why didn’t I think of that?”

That’s exactly what happened when I was introduced to the Lebert Equalizer. This is a simple, portable, yet heavy-duty bodyweight training aid that will help you reach a new level of fitness.

Doorway Chin Up Bar

For some people, getting their pull ups and chin ups in can be tough if they are working out at home. Not everyone wants to have a ceiling mounted chin up bar, and that’s totally understandable.

Nonetheless, chin ups are a key component to any bodyweight training program, that’s why I really believe in a doorway chin up bar.

Not only are they great for around the house, but if you travel, they are a must because you can break them down and set them up easily in your hotel room. Read More…

Bodyweight Circuit Training

Reap The Fat Loss Benefits Of Bodyweight Circuit Training

One of the ways to make your bodyweight training regimen even tougher is to start adding circuit training methods to it.

Circuit training allows you to train a target muscle group intensely, then change to a different muscle group and allow the first to rest—you will continue on in this fashion until you have completed the entire circuit.

One time through each exercise in the circuit counts as one set.

Circuits can be anywhere from three exercises to as high as ten. Anything lower than three isn’t technically circuit training, and anything above 10 starts delivering diminishing returns.

Let’s take a closer look at bodyweight circuit training and have a look at a few sample workouts… Read More…
