Unlock the secrets of conquering the foundational calisthenics movements with…
Conduct a quick experiment right now. Can you do:
- 30 strict pushups – chest-to-floor, arms tucked by your sides, and body ramrod rigid rather than sagging all over the place?
- 30 walking lunges per leg – with full range of motion, hamstring resting on the calf at the bottom position, torso upright, and back leg fully extended behind you?
- 25 single-leg hip thrusts per leg – upper back propped up on your couch, hips lowered to the floor, and locked out firmly in the top position?
- 20 bodyweight rows – with your feet at the same height as your shoulders in the bottom position, abs tight, and shoulders pulled down away from your ears?
- 20 supine leg raises – low back pressed into the floor, legs straight as an arrow,
- 100 bodyweight squats – butt-on-the-heels, posture ramrod straight, and hands behind your head?
If yes, you can stop reading now and carry on with your life.
If no, then read on…
Long before kettlebells had made their way out of the Russian landscape that birthed them, before the barbell captivated the fitness world, and before the dumbbell had become a household item, strength and its pursuit were still a top priority for soldiers, athletes, and hard men and women of all stripes.
In other words, strength training did not begin with The Iron we know and love.
In fact, feats of raw strength and brute power go back millennia and can be seen in every major culture throughout the world.
It should come as no surprise that in each of these cases, strength didn’t just “happen”; it had to be cultivated. And while many methods have existed for this cultivation throughout the years, one form in particular has transcended time, cultures, and languages.
I’m speaking of none other than old school calisthenics.
From ancient Egypt to early Greece; from the Roman empire to the cradle of civilization in India and beyond, calisthenics has been a mainstay in the training of everyone from Emperors to the Everyman.
But then something happened.
As our own civilization grew, advanced, and developed, the overwhelming majority of people have cast these noble systems of calisthenics by the wayside in favor of flashier, fad-driven training systems – and in the process, have unknowingly sacrificed their own strength and athleticism in the process.
Despite our obsession with fitness and all the fads of the industry, ours is the first generation in history to have a SHORTER lifespan than our elders! And other iron-clad markers of our strength, including our grip strength, are also LOWER than those of our forebears.
For all of our obsession with “progress”, when your car is teetering over the edge of a cliff, it’s better to put it in REVERSE rather than mindlessly keep moving forward. And so it is with our training.
In order to look forward to a brighter, stronger future, we must look back at what worked in the past.
We also need to adjust course to account for the challenges and road blocks we face today – including sedentary living, less familiarity with our bodies, and more “mileage” on them in general.
As daunting of a task as that may be, that’s exactly what I’ve aimed to do with my long-awaited Bodyweight Badazz course.
It’s a 6-week course designed to demystify and dominate the process of getting real-world strong with the no BS, high-rep calisthenics movements that lay the foundation for your strength – both in your favorite kettlebell exercises and advanced calisthenics moves, to boot.
Both the course and it’s accompanying program will lead you by the hand and show you how to smash the perilous roadblocks that have blocked your path and in the process open up a whole new world of strength, power, and unbridled defiance of gravity – so
In this course you will learn:

- Why better movement – NOT endless progressions – is the key to conquering calisthenics (and iron, for that matter)
- A ‘secret’ way of training your legs that can increase strength, improve your squat depth, and possibly even make your knees more resilient – with nothing more than your floor, a towel, and a couch.
