I’m no authority on calisthenics but I do understand the principles of learning a new skill. • Try.
• Fail.
• Learn.
• Try again.
• Fail less.
• Repeat until desired results are achieved.

My hotel gym workout; • Choose one pair of dumbells that allow you to complete 10 - 15 reps of the 6 exercises in the video. • Use the same weights for every exercise (this is conditioning, not and all out attack on one body part). • Use the same reps for each exercise. I usually go for 10, 12 or 15 depending on the weights available to me. Lighter weights - go 15 reps of each. heavy weights go low, like even as low as 6 reps of each. • Pick a time to complete the drill and rest (Timed sets). I usually try to repeat the whole drill every 5 minuets. This usually allows me to complete all 6 exercises and recover before repeating the drill. • Do 4, 5 or 6 sets.

‘Greasing the groove’ at 60-90% is pretty much agreed amongst the strength training greats to be the way to improve.
Improving technique at these weights is massively beneficial whereas squeezing out ugly rep after ugly rep at 95% + just trains poor muscle recruitment patterns.
Greasing the groove alongside adding muscle = 👆🏼 1RM

Single leg deadlifts (kinda). I’ve always found the single leg deadlift too unstable without any support. The best alternative for my money is to assist by resting the non working leg on a bench.
Set up is similar to a rear foot elevated split squat with slightly less distance between the bench and the front foot.
This exercise can be very effective with little weight. Remember you’re on a single leg so the weight is effectively twice as much as if you were conventionally deadlifting.

The Russians call it GPP (General Physical Preparedness). I’d call it GOYAADS (Get off your arse and do something)! You don’t have to EVER step foot in a gym to be fit and healthy. Just be sure to lift things, carry things, run sometimes, just generally challenge and get to know your body!

⚠️ 🔊SOUND ON 🔊⚠️ Body weight lunges can be enough to hold onto your booty gains over the summer.
Here are 4 variations to get both glutes, hammys and your quads.

Doing an exercise vs DOING an exercise vs OWNING an exercise!

I train between 50 plus people per week and if there’s one thing that differentiates people who get results from the people who don’t it’s the effort level I see people put in.

It starts before the class. I’ve seen people come to a training session, yawn on the way in, moan about every exercise and leave before we’ve finished.
Guess how likely they are to get results?

I also get people message me while they’re at work to tell me they are having a shit day and can’t WAIT to train... Guess what their results are like?

You get out what you put in.

Approach training like you want to F*čk s*^t UP!
The hard work is getting your ass to the gym... why anyone would go to the effort of going to train then give it anything less than BEANS is beyond me!

⚠️ Leg finisher ⚠️ 3 X 20 Banded Leg Press.
Adding bands to a plate loaded machine prevents ANY cheating and changes the strength curve.
If you’ve ever had a pt press on a weight stack whilst you’re performing an exercise this is similar, and you’ll know how hard the slightest touch makes it.

I nearly didn’t use them today because I knew how out right horrendous it makes the set. Did it anyway ;) #morelovemorefitnessnobullshit #training #nutrition #notcrossfit #fitfam #fitness #fitspiration #fitnessinabudhabi #fitnessmotivation #uae #uaefitnessmovement #abudhabi #abudhabifitness #bodyprojectuae #legday

Improvements in strength requires more weight, more reps, less rest or better form.

This is an average set at 90kg (10kg over my body weight). My goal for this year is a good looking single at 120kg. Inshalla 🙏🏼🙌🏽👊🏼 I record the working sets of every workout, if you don’t you’re just guessing. Make sure that total volume is going up or the duration of the workout is getting shorter... if it’s not then you’re not moving forwards.

10 minutes practice a day should have me in a full handstand in no time.
The time passes whether you like it or not. Whether you practice or not. Whether you work hard or you don’t.
Use this fucking time. It is not rehearsal!

If you’re seeing this and have taken me up on the handstand challenge then instead of another 10 minuets of scrolling through this tripe (that I contribute to) get of your arse and practice!

120, 120, 160, 180kg.

Testing singles is debatable.
They’re obviously risky due to maxing out but for my money seeing what is in the tank every 3 months or so is worth the risk.

Testing at at 3 - 5 reps is safer but when I use this method I’m always wondering what I could do for a single.
For me it’s why I lift... to get stronger!

The most misunderstood and underused piece of equipment in any gym.

The back extension machine (should be called the hip extension machine). Most people will use this as a lower back exercise. Why wouldn’t they. It’s all they feel because they’re doing it wrong (unless, lower back is their focus). To hit the hamstrings the pad sits a little lower like in the 3rd video. This way I can fully flex at my hips and push my knees backwards at in the position where my hamstrings are longest, focusing on the stretch portion of the movement.

See in the first two videos the pad is set higher. It’s not so high that my lumbar spine has to flex when I fold over but it’s high enough so that my hamstrings aren’t having to hold my while weight, this lets me focus on my glutes at the top of the movement. Also notice that my knees are flexed almost like a Nordic hamstring curl (body weight hamstring curl). Notice my upper back is in flexion to reduce the chance of my lower back being the main muscle used to extend the hips.

Bare in mind the lower back has to work isometrically so it will be felt to some degree but should NOT be the over ridding feeling.

5 minuets worth of mobility before today’s squat session. This is NOT my forte so I need to double down on it.
5 minuets before every workout + 20 minuets every evening should do the trick.

Have a look through the stretches and if any of them feel especially difficult (they shouldn’t) do them to death!
The benefits of mobility cross over to every other aspect of training.

⚠️ Warning ⚠️ This is not a special magical exercise for abs, obliques or rugby players.
Of course there are specific benefits to it if you want to go into the science behind training the transverse plane and yes there are some sports people who might want to spend time specifically on rotational drills.

But for me this morning. It was just a bit of fun. It expended some calories and let me take out a bit of aggression on two walls in the gym.

That is all.

Find physical things that you like doing and do them lots. Move more!
