1. What kind of equipment do I need?
There's minimal equipment used in this program, and you probably have most of it at home already. You'll need two chairs or a bench, a towel or furniture movers, and preferably a chin-up bar. If you don't have a chin-up bar, you can skip those exercises and do the alternative noted in the program.
2. Can I use weights in this program?
Yes, we encourage you to use weights to increase the difficulty of the workouts. Just make sure you're practicing excellent form for each exercise before adding weight or any resistance to it. The included video tutorials will show you how to add weight to the appropriate exercises.
3. Can women do this program?
Yes, this program is for anyone and everyone. Being strong is very empowering and is useful in everyday life. It's a myth that women get bulky from strength training. Many women make the mistake of lifting only light weights, which isn't enough to create significant change in how their bodies look or perform. This program will show you how to control your own bodyweight, which means a stronger core, strong legs and arms. You'll build lean muscle - no bulkiness.
4. How many days a week do I need to workout? How long do the workouts take?
Three times per week. On two of your rest days, you'll do a mobility & flexibility routine. The workouts take about 30-45 minutes, depending on how many rounds you do.
5. How long until I see results?
The program is 12-weeks long, but you'll notice strength gains every single week. Your form will improve with each workout. Building muscle takes time and consistency. To get the best results, you'll have to eat well and recover properly. We included information on this in the book. If your goal is fat loss, workouts can help, but that ultimately comes down to your nutrition.
6. Does it come with a meal plan?
We included four delicious, easy meals to fuel your workouts. You can use these recipes as guidance and customize them to your liking. There's also a grocery list to make it even easier to get started.
