It’s probably not much of a surprise that I like muscle. If you look through my previous posts I think it is pretty obvious that I am very much a workout junkie.
I like to do me best to be efficient about working out, and not to simply go the gym for the sake of being in the gym, but I do enjoy it.
And, if I thought fasting was going to cause me to lose muscle – even just a little bit – I wouldn’t do it. Not for all the fat loss in the world.
To me, weight training is like an insurance policy. With weight training I beleive with 100% certainty that I am losing body fat, but not losing muscle.
I’ve tried many different workout styles and routines throughout my training days. Some I liked, some I didn’t.
The key to working out is fairly simple – have a good plan of attack and execute that plan to the best of your abilities. It does not matter if you are following a full body training routine, a body part split program or some variation of the two…as long as you have a plan that allows you to progress, and you follow that plan, you will get results.
To get the very best results out of your workout your exercises need to be challenging. And, while I am not an exercise physiologist by any means, I do have my favorite exercises, the ones that I enjoy doing, and the ones that challenge me the most.
So from time to time, I’m going to share some of my all time favorite exercises on this blog. Starting with the simple Chin-up made challenging with a big rubber band.
It’s an exercise that takes a minimum amount of equipment, and that can easily be done in a commercial gym or in a home gym.
