Bodyweight workouts have plenty of advantages and disadvantages.
They are effective, can be done anywhere: at home or on the road to build strength and overall fitness. One downside is you can't increase the load like a traditional strength program using barbells and plates. However, a game changing evolution that is included in our No Gear 60 program is tempo training. Tempo training and periodization increases your muscles' time under tension with just bodyweight...packing on serious strength with no gear. If you are stuck at home, give these tempo exercises a try today.
MTNTOUGH Fitness Lab located in Bozeman, MT, has established itself as the elite source for improving mental toughness, physical preparation, and performance research for the backcountry hunter, military, and first responder athlete.
They have assembled an impressive team for this task, including Alex Fichtler (Former US Navy SEAL), Ara Megerdichian (US Army Ranger, Lieutenant Colonel and former West Point Instructor), and Jimmy Alsobrook (Mountain Training Legend & National Academy of Sports Medicine Certified Personal Trainer).
Lifelong backcountry hunter and MTNTOUGH’s founder, Dustin Diefenderfer, explains, “ We strive to find out what makes the excellent tick, and what gives them the indomitable, never quit, next ridgeline mentality and strength. We study it, measure it, test it, unpack it and then teach it to others.”
