In this current time of social distancing, it's on us to empower ourselves to take control of our own fitness and training needs. I'm the first person to stand up and admit my love for training tools and how the right ones can do so much to enhance performance training. But now at a time when health clubs and fitness centers have to close their doors, we have to use alternative methods to get performance training and fitness results.
Use your Body
Your body can be used for a host of different training options such as:
- Push ups
- Air Squats
- Sit ups
You can spice up training sessions in different ways to elicit different affects. Here are some ways that by simply adding small tweeks you can create different types of workouts:
Combining exercises together in a back to back format:
Sample: Perform a set of Push Ups for 10 reps, and immediately stand up and perform a set of Air Squats for 25 Reps. Recover and then repeat
Performing sets of exercises based on time, instead of reps:
Sample: Set a timer at 30 seconds. Perform as many Push Ups as you can for 30 seconds; pause 30 seconds to recover and then repeat performing Push ups for another 30 seconds.
Doing a cardio action between sets of exercises
Sample: Perform a set of Air Squats for 25 reps, then immediately fire into 20 seconds of Burpees. Recover for 45-90 seconds and repeat the 25 Air Squat reps, followed by 20 seconds of Burpees.
There are tons and tons of options available for "out of the gym no-tool training" where just switching up HOW you do the training impacts the intensity of the training session.
