Bodyweight Workout – No Equipment Workout

Banner-for-gymjunkies_AK-12-05-2014-468x60-01

Equipment needed

None. Just an open area like your living room or your lawn

Who is this for?

This is for anyone who wants to quickly lose body fat possible, but has no access to a gym or equipment.

So you have no equipment? Nothing to train with except your body and a will to train. I’m not even going to throw in dips, pull ups, or body rows since we’re going with a complete “no equipment” mentality. This means we will not be doing any upper body pulling movements which is far from ideal. However with maximum weight loss being the goal, a month without pulls is a calculated casualty.

Oh, and I don’t want to hear a single peep about there being no “ab” exercises. To lose weight you need maximum caloric expenditure and that weak-ass crunch isn’t going to cut it.

I’m also asking you to abandon long slow cardio for the 31 days. Unless you are finding some mental or spiritual clarity in your 30 minute treadmill treks, STOP IT NOW! If you are not satisfied with your results after following my 31 day plan, you can always return to the pretty red lights of the treadmill dashboard.

6 Exercises: Squat, Lunge, Push Up, Squat Jump, Hop Scotch, and Baby Burpee. Yes, the push up may be done from the knees if you can’t do a regular pushup.

Your Diet

Follow this diet plan…

Let’s get this straight right now: diet is THE most important component of your fat loss journey. And while we’re being straight forward, I’m asking you to endure some hunger pangs for the next 31 days.

This is a crash course. This is all out war for 31 days on the blubber you’ve been hauling around. Let me ask you this, has what you’ve been currently doing brought you results? If you answered no, then it’s time for something different. And radically different. I promise you, a little gnawing in your belly is going to go a lot farther toward your weight loss than any workout I can put together.

If you have set the goal to drop as much weight as possible in 31 days, be prepared to pay the price. No cheat days. No cheat meals. No cheat freakin’ tastes or bites of anything. It’s ONLY 31 days! Exercise some damned discipline and give it your all.

Eat lean meats, lots of fruits and vegetables, some nuts, and very limited amount of starchy carbohydrates and dairy. And keep the carbs to post workout only. Sound tough? It’s not tough – you can do anything for 31 days. Give it your all for 31 days and then make your decision. If you don’t feel more energetic and your weight hasn’t dropped, go back to eating your pasta and bread. Also watch your quantities. Keep meats to about size of your palm and nuts to one layer in the center of your palm (about 6 almonds). If you are hungry make yourself a big old salad – you can eat raw or lightly steamed vegetables until your belly is full. Speaking of salads, the only approved dressing is homemade vinaigrette: 3 parts olive oil, 1 part balsamic vinegar, spices as you desire. Yum! A sample meal plan follows:

That being said, here is a sample meal plan assuming a 6:00pm workout:

7:00am Large fruit salad of melon, pineapple, and grapes.

9:00am 1 banana. 1 small handful of almonds.

11:00am Large spinach salad with grilled chicken, cucumber, tomato, and vinaigrette.

2:00pm 1 apple.

5:00pm 1 pear. 1 small handful of walnuts.

6:30pm Post workout 8 oz of chocolate milk or small can of tuna + handful of carrots

7:30pm Stir fried sirloin and broccoli.

10:00pm How bad do you want to be shredded in 31 days? Ask yourself this before eating at 10 o’clock at night. If you still feel you need to eat, try half a piece of fruit and a large glass of water.

Here is the diet again…
