Q: What is the most versatile and portable piece of workout equipment?
A: Your own body
I've seen my share of late night TV and once or twice I was almost tempted to phone up with my credit card details to buy whatever wonder
gizmo they were pedalling that was guaranteed to burn fat and have you looking like the models in the background (I repeat, ALMOST).
There was always a theme to the adverts (infomercials?!). It folds away or has a compact design so it takes up very little space in the home, it will burn fat and tone muscle in zero minutes per day, and it's all for 10 easy payments of X hundred dollars/pounds/euro's, regardless of the machine.
Well listen to this for a sales pitch(Read aloud in a really annoying, over excited American accent) :
"Welcome to the most Advanced and Versatile training tool since the dawn of time, it's so efficient it even burns calories when you're
sat on the sofa watching TV.
It takes up no extra space in you're house and there's no need for storage, it has no sharp edges so the kids can even use it. Maintenance is minimal, and on the rare occurrence of a problem, it usually fixes itself, given a few days rest. It's also extremely portable so can be used anywhere, any time. And best of all, it's completely free.
Yes, that's right people I said free. No I'm not crazy, I'm not giving away old stock, the truth is, you already have one.
It's your own body.”
Too good to be true eh? Not really, and here's why….
For years I struggled to find a decent text detailing the ins and outs of proper bodyweight training. I couldn't find one, so I sat down
and wrote one.
I have spent most of my life working long hours, living in cramped accommodation or away travelling (sometimes a combination of all of them), this basically meant that gym memberships were an impossibility, bodyweight was simply the only way I could train.
"No Equipment, No Excuses” is the culmination of the last 15 years knowledge. From quick mini workouts on breaks at work to strength sessions without weights on contract abroad to outdoor conditioning sessions while backpacking across the globe, this book will give you the tools to train wherever and whenever you like, without the need for fancy gyms or heavy equipment.
The book contains descriptions for performing exercises for upper body pushing and pulling, core strength, leg strength, with over 200 pictures to accompanies the detailed descriptions. There's a bonus chapter offering suggestions on how to put together the perfect workout for whatever your goals may be.
I've spent hours reading and researching training methods used from the modern sports science perspective all the way back to the Spartan and Persian warriors of history, I've spent even longer trying and testing these methods on myself, introducing them to my classes to see how other respond. I made the mistakes so you don't have to.
You will be able to open the book and find ways of training and keeping yourself fit, strong and flexible whatever life throws at you. My own wife uses the techniques shown to get in workouts while our 7 month old son has a nap and all her gym going friends are always commenting on how lucky she is to regain her figure. Little do they know, it's not luck, it's efficient use of the number one fat loss machine in the world, the human body.
