Think you can’t get strong with just your own body weight? Think again.
You CAN use body weight – only training to gain strength … IF you know how to set up your workouts properly.
I have added a new “bundle” of FREE bonuses to the FVT Coaching Club … and my Death by Body Weight manual is one of those bonuses:
With this program, you’ll discover:
- The best, most effective body weight exercises to quickly and easily gain strength
- A complete six week program to get strong as hell with nothing but your own body weight
- Cool alternatives to cranking out endless sets of push ups and body weight squats
- Body weight moves that are NOT just a novelty (i.e. one-arm pull ups) but real, attainable exercises and progressions to get you super-strong
- Bonus tips and tricks to drill down the fine points of each move
And much more!
Now, here is a basic outline of how you would set up your body weight workout for gaining strength. It looks very simple … but done consistently over a period of time, it is VERY effective.
I have left out some of the details, but this gives you the overview of what a training day would look like:
Body Weight STRENGTH Workout
Five reps of each exercise, five sets each, done circuit -style, but taking plenty of rest between movements.
Work your progressions, and choose the hardest version you can handle of each exercise WITHOUT hitting failure.
knee push up -> regular push up -> feet elevated push up -> lever/shifting push up
“fat man” pull up -> band assisted pull up -> regular pull up -> weight added (if available) pull up
split squat -> Bulgarian split squat -> pistol squat -> weight added (if available) pistol
=> Get all the details on this set up and learn how to get super strong with just your own body weight here
Thanks for reading, train hard, and talk soon –
