Okay, now that we’ve discussed a few of the benefits and looked at one particular challenge, before getting into the nitty-gritty specifics, I want to put this right-out front for you to chew on a little bit and consider:
This is A VERY CHALLENGING, extremely HARD and very INTENSE program IF DONE the way I am going to show you and tell you.
It is not going to be easy, my friend. Heck, if you’re anything like me… it’s going to be very humbling.
Bodyweight training requires balance, control and integration.
You can’t fake it nearly as much as you can when working with a machine or a dumbbell. There is no easy way to master these skills and get stronger. At some point, it comes down to patience, persistence, effort, and commitment. Desire.
Ask yourself – do you really want to move better and get stronger? (I’ll wait)
Ok, GREAT!!!!! I knew you did…
So, when the time comes to do the work, come back to this question and then go DO IT.
Before leaving this topic for now, remember you will be able to scale up or down depending upon your level. But the fact remains that every repetition and every movement WILL challenge your ability to focus. And deal head-on with some serious discomfort.
That’s the only way you get better – and stronger. You must train smart, sure. But you must also train very hard when the time comes.
And the fact is, bodyweight exercises ARE hard to do well.
