Expert Training Guides Help You Reach Fitness Goals!

What “fitness feat” have you always wanted to accomplish? I think we all have something in mind, a seemingly insurmountable task that we just wish, for whatever reason, we could do. You see other people accomplish it with ease, and you secretly wish that you were them—even just for a minute—to know what it feels like.

I remember, as an overweight kid, when it was time to do pull ups for the President's Fitness Challenge in gym class. Oh no! The embarrassment of not being able to perform one repetition! I even had a hard time with the bent arm hang, which was supposed to be easier than the actual pull ups. How I wished I were like the “skinny” kids who could proudly perform several pull ups without struggling.

Do you have a similar experience? Whether you were unfit as a kid, or just like to keep challenging your fitness level now, your dream may not be as far out of reach as you once thought. This new series of articles will offer training tips for some common fitness goals for men and women—pull ups, real pushups, and even running a mile! With some hard work and dedication, you can do these things and more!

How about something for a near 60 year old that is in terrible shape with bad knees? There has to be something in that black bag for me. Report

This is just what I was looking for. I love this article :) Report
I would like to see articles about exercise precautions for those who can hyperextend. I can and have injured myself in childhood several times. Now I fight recurring issues not on the strength moves but on simple things like putting my foot down on a stair. POSITION IS EVERYTHING! But there is more I need to know. Report
I would love to do a pull-up. A split no thanks. Report
I finally reached the ability to run a mile without stopping. Now, I would like to do a 5K. Report

Exercising and keeping fit for me is crucial to feel all right. Because of my work I can not visit gym regularly, but I keep shape by taking Military Grade Supplements which make me always ready for active workouts. The recovery time is impressive even after long breaks. I feel energized when I exercise and throughout the day. Report

I would like to do a sit-up (or crunch) without killing my neck & also jog at least a mile without running out of breath. Report
I want to be able to do a plank! Report
I want to be able to go a pull up too.
I was a extremely skinny in elementary school and the pull up was something I could never accomplish.
