The 4 classic fitness moves I’m about to show and explain to you are all you need to build all-around strength and muscles in your whole body and lose excess weight.
However, there’s a snag. I can only promise your ideal fitness will become a reality if you agree to nourish your body and mind with real food – which I call – “the proper diet for humans!”
Once you become stronger and have gained new and stronger muscles, which will occur within 2 weeks, your confidence will get a huge boost and you’ll soon realize you’re finally back in control of your body and mind, not the other way around.
The beauty of these 4 classic movements is you can perform them anywhere and anytime, no matter your age, fitness level, or if you suffer from old annoying injuries or arthritis!
Let’s get right to the gist of things and explain the 4 classic fitness moves and the muscle groups trained:
1 – Push-Ups
The push-ups are one of the absolute best exercises to do. Why? Think about it and then try. After you’ve tried, you will know the answer and reason. Most can’t even manage 1 or 2 classic push-ups on the floor. That’s how unfit the vast majority of the population is.
But don’t worry – that’s also why I am here to help you progress – step by step and become a master of push-ups.
The Push-Up works: The chest, shoulders, arms, neck, core, lower back, and legs to a degree.
2 – The Plank
Another timeless pose that some people (like me) love, yet most absolutely despise! Why do you think many people hate planking so much?
Again, get into the planking position and give it your best shot. You’ll soon find out the reason yourself. The plank is damn tough to hold for longer than 15 seconds if that!
That fun fact is a big turnoff for many folks, which results in them avoiding the planks and instead opting for “easier” ab workout machines in gyms that only waste your time and do nothing to improve your core, stomach, or back.
The Plank works: The core, lower back, shoulders, arms, legs, neck, and partially the upper back.
3 – The Squats
I love knocking out unweighted air squats, but most others don’t. Once again, most unfit and overweight people find it hard to squat more than 5 times. That fact sadly makes them feel bad and believe they will never regain their health and fitness.
Thankfully, I can assure you that is not the case! No matter how far gone you may be with your weight, fitness, and confidence in your abilities if you keep working on yourself by following these 4 movements, you will soon regain full control of your body, muscles, and mental health.
Not long after that, you’ll do 30 push-ups, 1 to 2-minute panks, and 30 squats in one set!
Yep, that’s another guarantee I can give you.
The Squats work: Legs, butt, core, lower back, and your mind.
4 – The Lunges
Lunges are similar to squats because they work the same muscle groups.
However, lunges add one imperative benefit – explosive power!
Each time you step forward and go into a deep lunge, your front leg has to put in maximum effort to propel you back up and forward to step into the next lunge, and so on.
The Lunges work: The legs, butt, core, explosive power, balance, coordination, and focus!
All-in-all, lunges are an excellent movement to train your lower body and mind.
Please watch my video where I show exactly how to perform these movements:

I believe I’ve made my point about why you only need your body as your gym, and I’ve provided you with 4 simple tools explained clearly in writing and video.
I wish you luck with your new training methods.
