I N C O R P O R AT E YOUR WHOLE BODY • Learn to use as many muscles as possible — even if your current move focuses on one muscle group • Similar in principle to yoga: • Use your whole body in every pose to exercise and tone more efficiently.
THE WORLD IS YOUR GYM • The benefit of bodyweight strength train inis that you don’t need to go to the gym. • Squats, lunges, and pushups don’t require equipment. • Required equipment can easily be duped: • Pull-ups can be done on monkey bars • Dips can be done on benches or chairs. • Opportunities to exercise are everywhere
DIET IS EVERYTHING • This is the #1 rule for any fitness routine • Your nutrition will make or break your results • Eat healthy fats, maintain a low carb diet, & get the right amount of protein.
DON’T DO TOO M U C H T O O FA S T • Bodyweight strength training should be treated no differently than any other exercise regimen. • Don’t injure yourself via overexertion • Track reps and rest periods, • Increase at a reasonable rate for your body • Move slowly: Changes do not happen overnight.
