My first day on You Are Your Own Gym: The Bible of Bodyweight Exercises was incredible. It completely blew me away and gave me a new understanding—and much more respect—for bodyweight exercises. I was able to get a solid workout done with all of the intensity necessary to stimulate muscle growth in less than 40 minutes.
Last week’s exercise session, “First Look: You Are Your Own Gym”, was a primer for what would come over the next ten weeks. The pounding was more than I expected, but it was important to get my body prepared for the onslaught. I didn’t use any additional equipment for these workouts; it was just me wearing a tee shirt, shorts, and sneakers drinking from a water bottle.
Here are my results from the first day. I didn’t use the iPhone app correctly the first time, so my timed workouts are inaccurate. Future workouts will be recorded correctly, because I know how to use the app now.
