My Most Simple Workout

Are you too busy to go to the gym? Or maybe you just don't want to pay for a gym membership. Even if you do get into the gym, the countless amount of training programs out there can be daunting. Let me present to you the easiest way to stay in shape. Just 3 easy workout. It's my own personal training program after years of calisthenics training and untold amounts of reading everything I can get my hands on.

With just Push-ups, Pull-ups, and Squats, anyone can maintain a respectable physique. However, if you think you can just drop down and do push-ups or grab a bar and start doing pull-ups and you'll get the results then you are sadly mistaken. In order to make calisthenics work, you'll have to utilize some very important protocols.

Protocol 1 - Go slow on every movement. When doing push-ups, you go down slowly and then explode up. For squats and pull-ups, tense up your whole body and go slow.

Protocol 2 - Utilize leverage. When doing push-ups, keep your elbows close to your side, never letting them flare outwards. For squats and pull-ups, keep your feet close and your arms wide.

Protocol 3 - Workout 3 times a week, every week. This training program is to maintain a good physique so consistency is key. The entire workout usually takes me 10-15 minutes so if you don't have 10-15 minutes a day then you are lying and lazy. Although you're doing all 3 exercise every time, do an extra set for pull-ups on Monday, pushups on Wednesday, and squats on Friday. 

Protocol 4 - It's way easier to first slim down and then try to gain some muscle. That means stop eating so much. I'll have to go into dieting in a whole other post but for this purpose, eat more veggies and less of everything else. If you are already slim and can't gain muscle then start drinking more milk.

Example Workout: Monday - Pull-ups, 15 reps for 3 sets. Push-ups, 30 reps for 2 sets. Close leg squats, 15 reps for 2 sets. 2-3 minute rest between sets.

Maintaining a fit body is really that simple.
