My Story: How I got in the Best Shape of My Life – During a Brutal Year
I hadn’t planned it quite right. I found myself in post-graduate school with a full time job, bills, and a size-able family (wife + 4 kids). The first semester almost killed me. Stres
s levels went through the roof as physical training fell through the cracks. Weight was gained and strength was lost as I got more and more stressed out. I was n
ot in good shape at all.
During the second semester, out of desperation, I discovered some quick and simple strength exercises that changed my life and helped me “get it back.” I lost belly fat, leaned out around the torso, increased testosterone, and gained tangible upper body strength that I’d lost. I did this in my very limited amount of free time, in a way similar to how high-level gymnasts train their abs, but also in a way more accessible, simple, and straight-forward for people like me.
I found myself able to swing my heaviest kettlebell (almost half my bodyweight) 100 times in 5 minutes (one-arm swings) with zero current kettlebell training. While I had exercised with kettlebells in the past, it had come to an abrupt halt in the summer of 2015. With my new-found excercises, I was able to do a pull-up with my 82-pound son on my back…without having a current pull-up routine. These are all things that I never was able to do before, especially without specifically training to do them – all from only 2 minutes a day of dedicated Lever Bar™ training.
If it worked for me, I am sure it will work for you.
