I got this email from Renato, and I gotta say it makes me smile!
Just writing to let you know about the amazing results I’ve been having with No Equipment No Excuses! First of all, English is not my first language, so I hope I can express myself as clear as possible.
I’ve always been an enthusiast of body weight exercises, for philosophical reasons but mostly for lack of time to go to a gym.
I’m Brazilian, and in Brazil few people talk about body weight exercises. I should say that in Brazil there’s a gym culture, not a workout culture.
You won’t believe me (just kidding, I know you will), I had never had abs like this! I can say the same of my legs, my flexibility and my posture. I’m getting closer and closer to the lean and muscular body (not a bulky one) that I always wanted. Amazing results!
I had tried Mark Lauren’s YAYOG before, and it’s pretty good. But it never got me 100% satisfied. After a session, even in the intermediate level, I didn’t fell “worked out”. This is even though I couldn’t complete some of the workouts. Paradoxical, or it just didn’t “click”.
One day you posted a workout preview on your blog, which I saved for later. One day I tried it and found it just perfect! The perfect amount of sweat and effort and feeling good.
So then when the book came I bought it and started working out. I consider myself to be at the intermediate level. But I started at the beginner level, so that I could catch up (had been some time without working out). What I did was instead of repeating the same workouts for 2 weeks, I went further on to the next week. So the 10 week program would become a 5 week program. After workout #12 I decided to repeat workouts #10 11 12, and did the same with #13 14 15. Now I’m just starting the intermediate program.
You won’t believe me (just kidding, I know you will), I had never had abs like this! I can say the same of my legs, my flexibility and my posture. I’m getting closer and closer to the lean and muscular body (not a bulky one) that I always wanted. Amazing results! I’m really excited about it and can’t even know what to expect on the weeks to come!
I’ve been throwing some upper body exercises in addition to the program. Being a man I like exercising the back and chest muscles, mostly with the TRX or some isometric stuff. Peeking through the intermediate and advanced programs, I sense I probably won’t need those anymore. But, of course, I’ll substitute some exercises for others that I find harder or more fun. So good that the workouts allow this kind of flexibility.
Well, that’s it! Thank you for the excellent program! One more success story!
