100 No-Equipment Workouts: easy to follow home workout routines with visual guides for all fitness levels. Holla!
I bought this one as a gift to myself. The book (which I prefer to call a manual) is perfect for any home workout situation you throw at it.
If you can’t leave the house because: you’re plowed-in by a blizzard… zombie apocalypse outside… you have no clean underwear… your mother just got out of prison and plans to visit… there’s a Hyena Pie in the oven… you’re hiding from the police…
Whatever the situation, 100 No-Equipment Workouts gives little room for excuses to skip your workout. Everything is laid out with excellent visual illustrations to take you through your workouts. This book does NOT contain a lot of words. It simply gets right to the point.
Yes. There really are 100 full workouts in this book. Workouts out the waazooo, baby!
Open the book: On the left side is a synopsis of the workout, what body parts you will work, the workout’s primary focus, and quick tips to keep it safe and effective. On the right side are the visual instructions — step-by-step illustrations of each move. You’ll also get recommendations on how many rounds to complete depending on your fitness level.
Unless you’re brand new to exercising, you might be familiar with most (if not all) of the exercises contained in the book. The magic happens in how each exercise is paired with others to form full workouts that range from basic to beastmode.
Any cons to the book?
1. Welp, because all of the moves are exclusively bodyweight exercises (eh-emm, there ain’t no treadmill section), it may not be entirely suitable for someone who needs to take it easy on the knees, for instance. However, any exercise in the book can easily be modify. Ya know what I’m sayin’?
2. If the exercise illustrations aren’t enough for you to know how to properly perform the move, you can easily head over to Youtube and find a good video to break it down for you. That’s an extra step in getting your workout done, but it’s really no biggie.
So ya, I like this book. Actually caught someone getting a little too cozy with it. I had to tell ‘em, “Go git your own book, bro!”
