Start Your Plyometric Cardio Circuit Right: A Complete Guide To Insanity Plyometrics
Insanely Simple, Insanely Effective!
The following are some of the most insane and effective ways to get in shape quickly. You may think these methods are crazy or even dangerous, but they work and will make you feel better than anything else out there. These methods have been proven to increase your strength, endurance, flexibility and overall health tremendously.
1. The “Plyo” Method
The “plyo” method involves performing one set of each exercise for every 10 minutes of rest between sets. For example, if you want to do the bench press three times per week, then you would perform 3 sets of 8 reps with 90 seconds rest between them. If you want to add weight to the bar, just use a heavier dumbbell or another object instead of adding weight.
2. The “Mountain Climbing” Method
This is similar to the plyometric method except you climb up a mountain instead of down it. There are many benefits of doing this type of workout, including increased strength and stamina. This type of workout works well because it allows you to train all major muscle groups at once. You can also increase your cardiovascular fitness through this method as well.
3. The “Push Up” Method
This is a great method to increase your upper body strength and endurance. You can do this method in your home or office since all you need is enough room to do a regular push up. You can also use this method anywhere since it doesn’t require any equipment. This is a great way to get in shape if you’re traveling or just don’t have access to a gym.
4. The “Plank” Method
The plank method involves holding a modified push up position for as long as possible. This will strengthen your core and improve your overall endurance. You can perform this method anywhere since all you need is enough room to lay down. You can also do this at your office without anyone knowing what you’re doing.
5. The “Walk”
This is probably the easiest and most beneficial workout you can do. Walking is one of the best all-around exercises you can do. It improves your aerobic endurance, strengthens your core, and even tones your legs and glutes. If you have problems with your joints, walking is a great way to strengthen them as well.
You can walk indoors on a treadmill or outdoors.
The Best Workout Is The One You’ll Do

Workout Routines: How To Get Huge Arms!
It’s every man’s dream: huge, muscular, powerful arms. Every guy wants a gun they can be proud of.
But how do you actually get big arms?
You lift weights, and lift heavy at that.
Wrong. If that’s all it took, we’d all have massive guns. But, that’s the problem with the fitness industry today: It tells you stuff that’s simply not true. So to help you get huge arms, here are some common myths and facts about arm size.
MYTH: You Need To Train Your Arms Every Day
FACT: Training your arms more than once a day is overkill and can even be counterproductive. Your muscles are made of protein strands. Protein is damaged either by working it too hard or stretching it too far. Since training increases tension on the protein strands and overworking them can damage them, training a muscle group more than once a day, even if you have multiple sessions, can actually damage the muscles and stop them from growing.
Sensible training means that you should have at least 48 hours rest between sessions for that muscle group.
This is not to say you can’t train other muscle groups more than once in a day. You may train your shoulders, for instance, one day and then again in three or four days. So focus on your larger muscle groups and let your arms rest at least two days before training them again.
MYTH: You Should Focus On Working Your Arms Too Hard
FACT: If you want to get big arms, you need to focus on the movements that work your arms, sure. But if you really want to maximize arm growth, you have to work your whole body because big arms grow from a balanced physique. You also need to eat and rest properly.
So make sure you’re doing compound exercises that work your whole body such as deadlifts or squats. You should also eat plenty of nutritious food to provide your muscles with the building blocks they need to get bigger.
MYTH: Wrist-Strength Isn’t Important To Developing Bigger Triceps
FACT: While working your whole body and eating properly are very important, wrist strength can be the difference between getting those big guns and just getting another arm muscle. Wrist strength isn’t just important for curling the weight up; it’s equally important for keeping it there at the top of the curl. If your wrists aren’t strong enough to support the weight at the top or you don’t have someone there to help, you’re going to lose tension in your triceps and you won’t get the pump you want.
