Don't Underestimate the Power!

Don't underestimate the power of bodyweight training / claisthenics!

I see more and more people, from teenagers to adults who can not do 10 perfect push ups, 1 perfect pull up, 1 deep squat, 1 lunge without failling over or having flexibility issues, or one.....

Well, the list goes on and on!

Looks to me like we need to go BACK and start where we must start....and, we cna continue to intensify these movements as we get stronger, but for now, we need to get some basics down and you can find all this at the local playground!
1) recline rows under parallel bars
2) push ups
3) bear crawling - flat surfaces, up and down hills / stairs
4) sprinting - flat surfaces, up hills / stairs
5) jumping onto or over benches / tables
6) hanging leg raises / knee tucks while holding monkey bars
7) hand wlaking on monkey bars
8) pole climbing
9) hand walking on parallel bars
So, what am I telling you to do?
Start moving like an animal....start moving like a kid.....
ever see little kids at playgrounds?
They tear that shit up!
Can you keep up with them? All the jumping, running, chasing, climbing.....
If you can't move your body then you're not doing yourself justice.
Take my advice and get busy!
