Dan Long, CPT, CKMT, is a renowned fitness professional who is well-known as a Fat Loss Motivational Advisor, Life Coach and Mentor, and Founder of Kill Mode® Training Company. Working out of his facility in Tampa, Dan is a highly sought after fitness coach and mentor to professional athletes, entrepreneurs, doctors, lawyers, military personnel, bodybuilders, and ordinary people from every walk of life. Thanks to his incredibly effective, unique style of training, Dan and his team have been featured on Fox Television Network, ABC News, The Tampa Tribune, The Tampa Bay Times, and many other radio, print, and television outlets around the country.
Dan’s latest work—Suspension Revolution—is focused on suspension exercise, which a strength training approach that uses a system of ropes and webbing to allow the user to work against his or her own body weight. And while Dan did not invent suspension exercise, by incorporating his own cutting edge techniques, he arguably has reinvented suspension exercise. Dan’s innovative, highly sought-after approach is spelled out in Suspension Revolution, which includes beginner, intermediate and advanced editions.
The beginner program takes four weeks to complete, as does the intermediate. The advanced program runs for 12 weeks. Dan says that he was drawn to suspension exercise due to recurring back pain combined with overall poor flexibility. He says he was searching for a training regimen that could really strengthen his core and he found what he was looking for in suspension exercise.
Given that Kill Mode® is Dan’s signature training program, it’s not surprise that his Kill Mode® Mindset is a central focus of Suspension Revolution. According to Dan, you activate the Kill Mode® Mindset by spending the first half of each exercise, interval, rep, mile, timed exercise, etc., more or less on ‘autopilot.’ This basically means operating at ‘normal’ speed, resistance and intensity.
When you’re half-way through, you activate the Kill Mode® Mindset by executing a mental shift that jumpstarts the flow of adrenaline. And thanks to the stream of adrenaline coursing through your veins, you finish the last half of the exercise giving everything you’ve got, dramatically increasing the intensity of your workout to points far beyond anything you’ve ever experienced in any other training situation.
But that’s not Dan’s only secret ingredient in his Suspension Revolution training program. One of the key advantages Suspension Revolution has over ordinary strength training programs is that with Dan’s program, your recruit all 600 muscles in your body. That, combined with the fact that Suspension Revolution is comprised of 190 different exercises and you’ve got an unbeatable training program that produces amazing results in half the time of ordinary routines.
The Suspension Revolution routine calls for resistance training three days a week plus two days of interval training. For the resistance training, you alternate among Workouts A, B and C. For the workouts you use the suspension straps to perform the bodyweight exercises. The two days of interval training are designed to pump up your metabolism and shred the fat off your body, showing off the lean, powerful musculature underneath.
Regardless of whether you look at the beginner, intermediate or advanced e-books, Dan does an excellent job of explaining how to perform the exercises properly, including several pictures so you can make sure you’re getting it right.
And although the exercises are fairly straightforward and not too complex, unless you have experience with suspension exercise, be sure to follow the program in order, going from beginner to intermediate to advanced. This will help acclimate your body to the exercises and steadily improve your skill, flexibility and strength.
Other than the suspension straps you won’t need to purchase any fancy or expensive equipment for the Suspension Revolution program. With the cost of gym memberships flying through the roof, that’s always welcome news. And you can use Suspension Revolution with any manufacturer’s straps because it’s not the equipment that makes Dan’s program so unique, but his unique, proven combination of movements that makes his approach so much more effective than the other suspension training programs I’ve seen.
So if you’re tired of the same old routine, have hit a plateau that you can’t seem to shake or are otherwise stuck in a training ‘rut,’ then Suspension Revolution is definitely something you should consider. When it comes to fitness, Dan is a genius whose strategies are proven to take training to levels higher than you ever thought were possible. After 20 weeks of Suspension Revolution you’ll find that your body is leaner, more powerful, with greater flexibility and coordination than ever before. Check it out for yourself—you won’t be disappointed.
