Do you consider yourself
a part of the "herd"
the people who grind
away at their training (because that's what they've
been told to do) even when they aren't getting results
and aren't having fun?
Of course not!
You train hard and you're
not afraid to try out new exercises and training techniques,
as long as they can get you RESULTS.
And yeah, having FUN with
your training is a BIG part of it, too.
So on that note, I've

his creativity (and insanity, to be quite frank!) when

5 problems with bodyweight training
Solve these 5 BIG problems with bodyweight training
Bodyweight training is
you can use it to build muscle
and strength and burn fat, all in the privacy of your
own home (or on the road!)
There ARE, however, some
major problems that can come up when training with bodyweight
problems that can bring your results
to a screeching halt, if you don't know how to fix them.
I've got 5 exercises for
you here that solve 5 of the biggest problems people
run into with bodyweight training, including an exercise
that will literally DOUBLE the resistance you can put
on your chest with push-ups, and an abdominal exercise
that targets the DEEP core muscles that will flatten
your stomach and tighten your waist (which crunches
and sit-ups CAN'T do).
Check out these 5 exercises
and the problems they solve here
P.S. These problems especially
troublesome as you get more advanced in your bodyweight
training. We all know that the fastest results generally
happen when you first start training, but with the right
exercises, you can match those gains again!

push-up (and how to fix it)...
One weird problem with the push-up...
How to fix this weird problem with the push-up...
If you've built up some
decent strength in the Push-Up, to make
the exericse tougher, you've likely graduated to the
Push-up (the one done with your feet set up on a bench,
on the floor and body angled down in order to focus
chest (and make the exercise a bit more challenging).
And I know it's strange
to say it, but the problem here
is the floor (bet you didn't even know the floor
could be a
problem with the push-up!)
When you do a normal feet-elevated
push-up, as you come to
the bottom, you have to flatten out your chest and torso,
them horizontal, in order to keep your face from hitting
You're basically turning
it right back into a regular push-up only
with your knees and body bent.
And that's NOT what we're
looking for with that exercise.
So to solve that problem,
I've got a quick tip here for you from
Nick Nilsson (a.k.a. "The Mad Scientist of Muscle").
You're going to be setting
your hands on a bench
(FRONT EDGE) and hook your feet over a bar (or other
object) to get your body at that downwards angle. Because
hands are on the front edge, you're also going to get
tension by keeping yourself in place and from gripping
padding of the bench.
Set the bench a few feet
in front of the bar (I'm using a bar set
in the power rack and pulled up against the uprights...you
use whatever is high enough up that you can get your
Adjust the height of the bar to your liking.
Get your feet hooked over
the bar and get your body straight. Now
you're in the top position of the elevated-feet push-up.
Lower yourself down.
As you can see, in the
bottom position my head is BELOW the level
of the bench. THIS is what allows me to keep that ideal
position and maintain tension on the upper pecs during
which is what you CAN'T do if your hands are on the
Now, can you use push-up
handles or set your hands on dumbbell
handles to mimic this? Absolutely. It'll help.
But I STILL find that
even with the hands raised a few inches on
handles, it doesn't give you nearly as much range of
setting your hands on the bench in this fashion and
not having to
worry AT ALL about pressing your face into the carpet...especially
if you elevate your legs even more than I have
in the demo here
(the more vertical your body goes, the more useful this

you're training chest and see what you think!
