Good grief! Now THIS gives you a workout!
I totally stumbled across freeletics, by chance, on twitter. It is a free workout plan that can be accessed via an app on your phone – at least, that’s how I use it. The basis of freeletics is that you can complete various high intensity plans using nothing more than your own bodyweight – no high cost equipment, win win!
Don’t make the assumption that by not using weights, resistance bands, or any machines, that it will be a walk in the park. It WILL try to kill you!!
I’m relatively new to fitness still, only really starting in January of this year, so I’m certainly not one of the crazy fit, flexible, beautifully toned & ripped people that you see doing the exercise demos on the app. So maybe it is tough work for me and my fitness level – BUT, the beauty of these types of workouts is that you get out what you put in. There are hard and easy versions of each move & the only restriction is your own ability – you can go as fast or as slow as you like (looking at my scores up there, I’m pretty freaking slow!!).
The planned workouts are pretty bloody evil. Don’t expect to be able to walk/move/breathe for a little while after doing one (p.s. you will also be feeling the pain the day after!). There are also ‘Max’ workouts, which I love – this is essentially you against you, trying to beat yourself to do more sit ups or squats, etc. There are leader-boards available to view and you can get your friends to sign up too, for added competition.
There is a premium service available – this is obviously one that requires payment, but it is apparently tailored to your needs. I’ve not tried this, so I can’t comment on it, but the free app version is great!
Search ‘freeletics’ in your app store and feel free to add me if you can find me (I’m the slow one, at the bottom!) Who wants a squat-off?! 😉
