Body Weight Training
If you haven’t heard about body weight training before, you’re about to discover how you can leverage your body to get in the best shape of your life.
Here’s why you need to take a close look at body weight training…
● It’s more natural than fad diets or “new age” exercise equipment
● You don’t have to stress out about getting to the gym… you can exercise from anywhere…
● Research is showing that body weight training can often give you better results than with exercise equipment or fitness programs
● It’s fun, so it’s easy to stick with your plan and ensure you get results
● Body weight training will save you THOUSANDS of dollars when compared with other fitness programs
Although most exercises that focus on body weight training are pretty simple, many people struggle to get solid results. That’s because, with body weight training, the details are important…
When you do things the right way, you’ll be burning fat and building muscle in just a few short week… you truly will get in the best shape of your life.
This step-by-step course gives you everything you need to start getting noticeable results within just a couple of weeks. And the best part?
You’ll never have to spend money on equipment or step foot inside of a gym…
It’s so simple… but bodyweight training might well be the one thing you need to start making some major changes in your life.
Not to say that you necessarily need to be making changes… But if you’re looking for a way to build more muscle, to lose fat, to feel healthier and better about yourself and to be pumped full of energy – bodyweight training can do all that.
And this is true even if you have failed to get into shape with other training programs in the past. In fact, bodyweight training is the perfect antidote for anyone who has struggled with regular workouts. Whether you tried running, lifting weights or anything else – bodyweight training presents an answer that is easier, faster and more effective – and that’s more likely to help you get the results you’re looking for.
Think about how many people you know who have tried to get into shape and failed. Think about how many of your friends or family members have started new training programs or new weight loss regimes. Either they’re trying to build big muscle, or they’re interested in losing fat.
Either way, they come to you all excited about their new goals and they show you their program. Often it will involve training five days a week at the gym, perhaps for an hour at a time.
At the same time, this new training program is going to involve eating 500 fewer calories.

I want to demonstrate the power of bodyweight training to you right away and that’s why I’m starting with this simple workout. It’s called the ‘SSE’ workout because it’s super simple and effective.
This is a workout that addresses all of the issues that we saw in the last chapter and then some.
It’s a workout that takes 10-15 minutes. All you need is a pull up bar (or a tree branch). And you’re going to do it in the morning, before you shower. Read more.
Using the SSE workout, you can start getting fitter and burning fat/building muscle right away.
But what if you want to become the next Arnold Schwarzenegger? What if you want to become incredibly bulky, ripped and hench? In that case, you might think that your only option is to start lifting weights but you would be wrong – in fact there are a number of ways you can build big muscle using bodyweight alone and it’s probably a lot easier than you suspect. Read more.
Not everyone following these lessons is going to want to build big muscle though and creating intense workout splits certainly isn’t for everybody.
A lot of you are going to just want to improve your health, burn some fat and feel a bit stronger. In that case, you can start seeing amazing benefits just simply by using the SSE workout we looked at at the start of this program. As you progress though, you may want to make this more challenging for yourself and spend a bit more than 10 minutes in the morning to build some real strength and burn some real fat! Read more.
The title of this program promises that you can get into great shape with NO equipment. And yet we keep mentioning pull ups and chin ups.
That’s because training the biceps with zero equipment is actually quite hard. And the same is also true for the lats and pulling movements in general. A pull up bar – as we said already – can be bought online for $5 and will fit into your doorframe without even needing you to screw it in or drill any holes. There’s really no reason that you can get one of these.
And if you can’t, then there are a few more options. One is to use the underside of a table or desk. Simply lie flat underneath the table, hook your hands under one edge and then perform ‘half’ pull ups with your legs on the ground. Or you can even lift the legs up and do pull ups while in a ‘sitting’ type position. Read more.
Alright, now you know what you need to do and we’ve gotten the awkward subject of biceps out the way, it’s time to look at some of the actual moves you can use!
Of course there are many more bodyweight exercises and there’s nothing to stop you creating your own bodyweight moves either. Just use this as a starting point… Read more.
Hopefully at this point you’ve seen just how powerful bodyweight training can be. This is a way to work out that requires no equipment, that’s incredibly fun and that you can do anywhere.
It can be used to burn fat, build lots of muscle and increase your overall health. And there’s no reason why it can’t be just as effective in building size, strength and mass as any training program in the gym. The key is to just understand how it’s working and why it’s working. Using drop sets, super sets, burns and cheats you can get just as much pump during a workout and trigger some real growth (but of course you need to eat plenty of protein to put that into action).
