In this episode the Crew dials the voicemail to answer a question from a loyal Power Athlete Radio listener:

Bitter sweet bitter sob story for ya fellas, I lost my job because of this whole lockdown thing back in June. The bitter. Thank to you and my home gym my gains have been amazing, and I’m absolutely thrilled to report I landed a new and better job. The sweet. Now onto the other bitter, I need to move, and wont have access to my home gym for a few months. Is it possible to still get gains with just bodyweight training? – Jim

Better Sore Than Sorry

Billy Blanks, P90X, and every other fitness infomercial get it. Bodyweight only training will get you fit and strong, until they don’t. After the 90 day money back guarantee, these bodyweight workouts need to evolve in order for you to see continued progress in strength, muscle, and fitness. Restarting these from day 1 is the quickest way to return to the couch potato making those late night DVD purchases. You gotta stress to progress, so how can you continue to build strength and size with bodyweight only workouts?

Welcome Luke and Tex into your living room as they discuss the training sans weight or equipment. Learn how to manipulate movement and become your own gym with this all-bodyweight training conversation. If you’re returning to lockdown and refusing to be price gouged for used equipment, then this episode is for you!
