Dear Friend,If you want a break from heavy lifting that won’t compromise your hard-won gains…
If you’re simply looking to gain a physical advantage with a workout that’ll leave you chiseled without the drudgery of hauling weights…
Or if you’re turned off by the gym either because you travel a lot or want to workout from home to save time and have some privacy….
… continue reading because this is going to be the most important message you read today… and it could even extend your life.
But first let me introduce myself…
I know what it takes to reach optimum strength. I’ve helped train hundreds of guys to hit their strength goals and fulfill their potential.
But, like every guy, every now and then I hit a plateau or find the training load takes its toll on my body.
You’ve probably experienced the same.
It starts with the odd aching joint or soreness that doesn’t leave you. You wake up with less energy than usual. Your workouts start to lose their mojo. And, as a result, your motivation plummets.
Most of all you have a nagging feeling that despite all your diet and training you're still not as ‘strong & healthy’ as you should be.
When this happened to me, I didn’t know where to turn. Lifting has always been my thing. Even on the worst days I could motivate myself no problem.
This was different. I felt my body needed a rest. A change.
But how could I change it up without sacrificing all my hard-won gains?
Look, I know you’re not going to give up lifting.
Heck, neither am I. I love it.
But, if you’re anything like me, you know what it’s like to have a love-hate relationship with the barbell.
When you’re in the zone, it feels great. The pump is awesome, you feel the power rushing through your body.
Yet, some days, it just doesn’t happen. And sometimes those days turn into weeks and you kinda start dreading that moment when you have to psyche yourself up for your workout.
How did it get like this? How can you love something so much that turns sour?It’s your body telling you that it’s time to change things up.
The last thing you want to do is sit back and relax.
Taking a break isn’t what you want to hear… and it’s not what your body needs (if anything, you’ll lose all motivation when you start going soft).
What if there was a way to take a step back from lifting for just a few weeks to take a break from the workout grind… but guarantees you’ll come back stronger and more powerful?
What if you could INCREASE your strength and power while taking a break from the gym?
What if you could rebuild and refocus your body to prepare it for hitting the gym in the best physical shape you’ve ever been in.
I realized it was time to give my body a break from my usual routine.
I was working out, but my gains were slower, harder-won… and, inevitably I was losing motivation.
Like most guys, I thought there was only one way to pack on muscle and build a bullet-proof body, and it was by using free weights at the gym.
Or so I thought…
In my quest to discover new ways to fire up my physique, I decided to have some fun with some of my buddies and enter a mud run.
Heck, with my physique and muscle, I thought it’d be a breeze knocking off the obstacles one by one. How wrong was I?
I was in for a serious wake up call. The muscle that took years to build felt like it was working against me. Sure I could lift big weights in the gym… but pulling my body up a wall or swinging across a muddy lake on monkey bars was an entirely different story.
How could I feel so weak when I’ve spent my whole life working on my body and getting in the best physical shape.
After that first event I was confused and angry. Then I resolved to discover why I felt this way.
I spoke to other experts, read magazines and books… but it was only when I watched my kids playing in the yard that it hit me.
I saw how effortlessly they ran, jumped and swung on their playground equipment. They’re not what you'd think of as strong and they’re not bulging with muscles. They’re actually skinny and lean.
Yet, in many ways, they’re stronger than I was.
Functional Strength - the kind of strength that has purpose.
Strength-to-weight ratio - your ability to move your own bodyweight in relation to your strength
It’s bad enough not having basic functional strength but I was shocked when I found out the wider problem of a poor strength-to-weight ratio.
There’s one huge secret that’s been kept from us. And it’s killing us.
While we’re able to pack on more muscle than ever, hit the gym super hard and sculpt an iron-clad body… we’ve neglected to build all-round strength.
When we were kids we were created with a balanced strength-to-weight ratio. Our upper and lower body strength was in balance and in proportion to our bodyweight.
That’s why we could run, jump, climb trees easily and spring into action at any moment.
But as we grew older, our lives became busier and our time became limited. We no longer had time to spend running, playing and tearing around trying to burn off our endless energy.
Even though we hit the gym, we spend most of our time working, sitting at a desk or slouching on the couch. Our strength is no longer functional.
The link between our strength and how it relates to our weight has been severed.
Sure, we can haul weights… but we can rarely haul our own bodyweight.
Why is this a problem?
The worse your strength-to-weight ratio is, the higher your chance of an early death.
In a study from Brazil of 2,000 people aged between 51-81 years old, researchers discovered that maintaining high levels of muscle strength, power-to-body weight ratio and co-ordination had a favorable influence on life expectancy.
In other words, poor strength-to-weight ratio knocks years off our lives.
We’ve forgotten that the measure of “true strength” is more than just your one rep max…
… it’s much, much more.
Explosive Strength refers to your ability to direct force as rapidly as possible. Put simply, this is the measure of how quickly your body can move from one point to another. While Explosive Strength is used for maximum effort lifts, it can be used to generate enormous power with bodyweight movements.
This is the force you can generate for an extended period of time. It’s measured by your ability to remain strong for as long as possible without succumbing to fatigue. There are two kinds of Strength Endurance: a) Dynamic, which is your ability to endure sustained repetitive movements, and b) Static, which is your ability to hold a posture for any length of time. Proficiency in both kinds demonstrates “true strength”.
When you suffer from a lack of Stabilization Strength, your core is out of balance. You cannot generate proper force through your body, compromising your joint mechanics and eventually causing injury. Without focusing on developing Stabilization Strength, your body will suffer from more and more joint injuries, secondary and transferred pain, potentially leaving you in pain.
As mentioned above, Relative Strength is the “forgotten” measure of strength. In sport, relative strength—or how strong you are in relation to your bodyweight— is an important, but occasionally overlooked, factor. A poor strength-to-weight ratio impacts on your ability to use your Explosive Strength and Strength Endurance.
Here’s the thing. Each Strength Type is closely related to each other. If you suffer from a lack in one area it affects other areas, as I discovered.
You may not think Relative Strength is that important in bodybuilding, but poor Relative Strength prevents you using great bodyweight lifts such as pull-ups, push-ups and one-legged squat variations.
Only when you develop in every strength area will you build a solid foundation for your body. Focusing on all four strength types helps you develop “true strength” to elevate your gains and lifts you to new heights.
And the fastest, most effective way to re-balance your body is with bodyweight exercises that have been used by everyone from the Ancient Greeks to the US Special Forces.
A leaner and more muscular looking body - bodyweight training focuses on the whole body burning ugly body fat while leaving you leaner. As you strip away stubborn body fat, the true muscularity of your body is revealed showing off your Spartan warrior-like physique.
Workout just about ANYWHERE - you know how frustrating it can be to not make it to the gym. You feel you’ve let yourself down, like your body is going to suffer. Mastering the core bodyweight exercises gives you the freedom to stay in control of your training and work out ANYWHERE. Keep packing on muscle and sculpting a lean physique on vacation, when you’re working away or travelling for long periods without access to a gym.
Builds a solid foundation - if you’re new to the gym or starting from scratch, bodyweight training gives you the best foundation. You’ll start building a balanced physique incorporating explosive strength alongside endurance and avoid making the mistakes of focusing on one area of strength training too much.
Avoid injuries - even if you’re an experienced lifter or are already experiencing pains and aches, a program of bodyweight training quickly begins the process of ironing out and correcting imbalances.
Feel younger - look, I didn’t believe it when I first started bodyweight training, but it’s true. Because bodyweight exercises emphasis explosive power and relative strength, you add greater speed and stamina to your physique which physically makes you feel like you did in your 20s.
Improve your endurance – don't be like those guys that can bench press a house but get tired walking up a flight of stairs or get tired playing in the backyard with the kids.
Rest your joints - hitting the gym day-in, day-out takes a serious toll on your joints. Bodyweight training is the BEST way to give your joints a rest while still providing enough tension to your muscles to maintain and continue growth.
De-stress your body - the physical and emotional impact on lifting every day puts immense stress on your body, not to mention your emotional wellbeing. We now know that mindset is the most important aspect in breaking through barriers and pushing ourselves to new heights. Breaking up the sustained pressure of hitting the weights in the gym frees your body and your mind to gain sufficient rest to come back harder and better.
There’s a ton of misinformation about bodyweight, so let’s bust three of the biggest myths around this kind of training:
Bodyweight exercises done properly hurt. They’re brutal.
Don’t believe me? Ask yourself, why do the military and Special Forces rely on bodyweight conditioning to knock recruits into shape?
Just think about it.
In real life combat situations muscles aren’t isolated… you use your whole body to run, duck, cover and get yourself into life-saving, combat-ready positions.
At the heart of military-style conditioning is the need for a high strength-to-weight ratio. This is developed through mastering the core bodyweight moves, including squats, pull ups and push ups.
Going back to basics isn’t a step backwards.
It’s proof you’re a master at full body conditioning.
Just because you’re not lugging weights around the gym doesn’t mean you’re not tough.
The reason there’s a perception that you can’t pack on muscle through bodyweight training is a lack of understanding. You see, you need to understand how to choose the right progressions to increase your strength.
As long as there is tension on the muscle you can grow. Your muscle does not know if the resistance is an external weight or your own body.
Oh, and did I mention that it can be really tough.
You won't be doing fancy stuff like this with
Go on Youtube and you’ll find a ton of “supermen” showing off their bodyweight moves. Yes, these look impressive but don’t be fooled.
You don’t need to focus on super-advanced complex moves to chisel a strong foundation of functional strength.
You just need to do the right moves with the correct form with the right progressions.
Every bodyweight master started from the same point: working on the foundational moves which make up 90% of the strength types.
Only by focusing on the core moves which target each of the Four Strength Types will you really develop powerful “true strength”.
And the good news is these are simple and easy to master, as long as you choose the right training…

Push-ups have a long history of excellence when it comes to overall strength and physical health which is why they are one of the most popular bodyweight exercise.

The Push-Up is one of the truest FULL BODY exercises in the world and when done properly, an accurate measure of raw strength and conditioning.

Do you avoid them altogether and secretly wish they weren’t so darn hard?

Add Size & Strength With Just Your Bodyweight
"There is one way to build muscle, and one way only. Get stronger, period. We stimulate new growth by adding resistance, and that resistance isn't partial to iron plates or our own bodyweight. So whether you’re aiming to add 5 pounds to your bench press or pushing toward doing an extra rep on one arm push-ups, your body will have to adapt to the new stimulus.
That’s where most bodyweight training programs have it wrong. It’s also why I recommend Body-Weight Beast to anyone who’s looking to add size and strength with nothing more than their own bodyweight."
Fitness Author, Strength Coach, Certified Personal Trainer
Deload Your Nervous System & Improve Performance
"Body-Weight BEAST is the perfect combination for Relative Strength! After loading my body up week after week trying to add as many numbers to the bar and scale I knew I needed a period of time to not just deload my nervous system but give it a rest while improving my performance.
This program did just that. I was able to take all the absolute strength I built up and really begin to move in my own body. Not only did I maintain my strength, I also got leaner and felt better in my daily life. Highly recommend to anyone that wants to take a break from the weights but stay progressing in the gym."

Develop Incredible Power, Strength & Explosiveness
"There’s more to bodyweight training than simply throwing down a few sets of push-ups or chins as an afterthought. Bodyweight training can be used to develop incredible power, strength and explosiveness. The key is having a “done for you” template for how to do it!
And THAT is what Body-Weight BEAST is all about.
Chris takes you step-by-step through all the workouts and exercises you need to develop SERIOUS strength and conditioning via bodyweight training.

Lost Fat & Renewed My Energy Levels
"I was absolutely sick of lugging around over 50 lbs of unwanted fat but wasn't sure what to do in the gym. I was athletic as a kid playing soccer all the time but had no real experience with weights. I knew I had to begin eating consistently well but lacked the direction and ambition in the exercise department.
Then I came across Body-Weight BEAST, a program I could do on my own at home in minutes to burn a ton of calories while gaining some muscle and strength. I quickly learned how only doing body weight exercises could make me sore but also super energized and way more mobile.
Since I work with kids for a living, I needed a program that was going to help me shed fat and help to restore some necessary energy to keep up with my youth group boys and girls. I'm so thankful for this program and what it's meant to my personal and professional life."
Improved Confidence and Muscle Tone
"The Body-Weight Beast program has helped my mobility, strength, and confidence. Not only has my endurance improved, but muscle tone and symmetry, as well as a reduction in overall fat. These movements and exercises have also improved the explosiveness and power in my lifts. Overall, this program will be beneficial to all levels of physical abilities and men and women of a variety of ages."
Fitness Model & Physique Competitor
Not Like Other Bodyweight Training Workouts
"In the past I never thought bodyeight training was intense enough until I tried Body-Weight BEAST. I ran through it the other week, did exercises I've never done before and got a workout like I haven't had in a while. Definitely keeping this in the library for the future. Highly recommended."
