Your unlimited potential!

Using your own body for training is amazing. Your options are truly limitless. The rules are what you make them.

You can add simple tools to bodyweight such as med balls, the power wheel or weighted back packs to intensify your movements.

I love the D balls, which I snagged off my buddy Jason Ferruggia when he closed down his gym!

Sometimes you get tired of getting under heavy weights and need the break. So you do like I do....

Create furious circuits that are short in duration yet keep you moving. Movement is critical when you train as opposed to doing things in one spot!

Check out this circuit I did for 4 rounds:

1A) 40 lb d Ball: burpee + close grip push up + shoulder x 10 reps

1B) mixed grip pull ups x 8 - 10 reps

1C) squat jumps

1D) lunge jumps

This workout was blasted through in barely over 10 minutes and it was a tough one. There was little to no rest after each round.

What can you do with your body? Have you ever gone to the playground and started creating a workout with the monkey bars, the playground equipment, the benches, the picnic tables, the trees?!?!

Let your body move freely and allow your mind to open up to more movement. Strength is not just about deadlifting heavy. Strength is your ability to also move your body efficiently through various activities.

Bruce Lee said it best when he said, "Be like water".

You can not be so rigid in training. Being rigid in training is a sign of rigidness in life. This never works to your advantage. instead, mold your training into something that gives you more freedom.

It all starts from within.

Dedicated to your success,
