Getting in shape is now simpler than ever with this 6 week daily workout program. No dumbbells, no kettlebells, no jump ropes. It’s just you, your exercise mat and some of the most effective bodyweight exercises that will help strengthen your muscles, boost your metabolism and burn tons of calories. I have picked some of my best body weight routines and transformed these explosive workouts into a comprehensive fitness program, that will take your performance to the next level. The best thing about this program? Each workout is only 12-15 minutes long, which makes it super easy to stay consistent. Short daily training will bring you much closer to your goal than doing longer workouts 3 times a week. The last day of each week is going to focus on stretching and recovery to get your body and mind ready for the next 6 days of high intensity training.
BEFORE YOU BEGIN THIS PROGRAM
I strongly suggest you take a photo of yourself and measurements for tracking your progress. It’s hard to tell if you’re getting closer to your goal by just looking in the mirror every single day, but numbers don’t lie. I suggest you to avoid a scale that tells you only how much you weigh. As a matter of fact, those numbers can be quite deceiving. As you begin to get stronger and build lean muscles, you might gain weight while becoming tighter and slimmer. That’s because muscles are denser than fat. In order to see if you’re losing fat and getting thiner (or more muscular) you should use a tape measure. Check out my post on How To Use Tape Measure To Track Your Progress. You can use a Digital Body Analyzer Scale that can also measure your body fat percentage. You can measure yourself daily if you want – studies show that people who do daily measurements feel more accountable and therefor mores successful in sticking to a program. To see if your current diet supports or sabotages your training, you have to allow 2 weeks of staying consistent with your diet and training. If you don’t see any positive changes (not even small ones) after two weeks of consistent exercise, then you need to do some changes in terms of your diet and eating habits. Here’s a useful article on How to stick to a healthy diet. For more useful Nutrition Tips, read through my Nutrition Guide.

1. Will I lose weight following this program?
These workouts have the ability to help you lose weight, however it’s important to know that no workout program in the world will help you lose weight if you’re going to sabotage your efforts with your diet. If your goal is to lose weight, you’ll have to pair this program with eating habits that will support your goal.
2. Can bodyweight workouts help me to build muscles?
High intensity interval training has been known to trigger the human growth hormone and fast twitch muscle fibers. Your body will become stronger and more athletic using challenging exercises such as the ones in this program, but don’t worry about, (or hope for) any kind of huge muscle gains. Again, the visibility of your muscle tone will depend largely on your diet.
3. Can I get a lot stronger and more athletic doing this program?
Yes! And absolutely Yes! I can’t guarantee you weight loss, or visible muscle tone, which always depends on your diet as well, but I can guarantee you, that you will become a lot fitter and stronger after only 6 weeks of working out with me on a daily basis. This will give you a great base and more strength to eventually advance into the ZGYM’s extreme workouts with equipment if you get hooked on getting into the best shape of your life!
4. Do I really have to do a workout every single day?
Yes. If you choose to do this program and you want the best possible results, I suggest you to do your training daily without skipping a beat. It’s only 6 weeks of calisthenics, you can absolutely do this!
5. What if I have my period? Should I workout?
I suggest you stick with the program even when you’re on your monthly period. If you’re like me, you’re probably low in energy and won’t feel like exercising, but I’d like to encourage you to do your best and go through the routine even if you have to slow way down, or even pause the video. Exercise will give you energy and make you feel better.
