Leaner & Stronger Training Tips and Another Bar-barian & Power Wheel video!!
Bar-barian's Andy doing Power Wheel Alligator push ups!! These guys are all very high level and Andy is one of the best in the world at push ups, dips and pull ups and watch how challenging the power wheel is for even him! This exercise is in our upcoming 8 week cycle too so use Andy as inspiration and try to hang with one of the best in the world!!!
This week as you know is rest and recovery week and so far been doing good, i'm actually not doing any push ups or chin ups!!:)
Q & A: I've been asked many times what is the best way to get stronger & leaner while being plant based AND doing bodyweight training.
For getting Stronger:
CHALLENGE & ADAPT: To me it is always simply a case of constant challenge and adaptation to various skills and movements...find various movements that challenge you at your level; push ups, pull ups, squats, hip extensions, etc.
CHALLENGE THE INTENSITIES: find a level of each that challenges you and then train them as often as you can while challenging each with various types of loads...for example pure strength one day, pure power another and then maybe pure static holds on another OR maybe a mix of all of them in a metabolic type workout.
KEEP TRACK AND PROGRESS EACH WEEK: here i like to keep track of them each and progress them each week like we are currently doing in our 8 week cycle. IF you do this you will adapt and progress on each and all of the movements over the 8 week cycles. THIS is how you get stronger.
How do you get leaner: It is simple as well...
EAT STRONG PLANT BASED MEALS: no fluff, eat only foods that when you hold them and feel them you know them make you strong! Kale, beans, sweet potatoes are great! In general colorful vegeatables, fruits, nuts, seeds, pseudo grains and roots!
EAT ONLY WHEN HUNGRY: dont eat by the clock, eat when HUNGRY!!
EAT ONLY TIL SATISFIED: very important again, eat ONLY enough to satisfy no more! Think if you had to workout again right after eating or within a half hour how much would you eat? This is how animals think about it because their life is on the line, do the same and get the same results. You may eat more often during the day with smaller meals but you'll have greater energy and never feel sluggish and tired. BIG point here is you train when slightly hungry too and you'll have MUCH better results. NO ANIMAL hunts when it's full right?:) They hunt when they're..........HUNGRY!!!!:) haha
THIS is how you get leaner!!
Do one and get very good results, do both and get leaner and stronger!!!!
Hope this helps you all out my friends!!
