Hail to the Dinosaurs!
Not long ago, I went to London and taught
Dinosaur Dumbbell Training at a seminar with
kettlebell expert Mike Mahler and UK strength
coaches Cj Swaby and Sabina Skala.
While I was there, I met Keris Marsden and
Matt Whitmore, who run a great little gym
called Fitter London. At the breaks, we
talked about exercise, nutrition and how
to save the world by helping people exercise
right and eat right. You know, the important
Keris mentioned that her dad is still training,
and that her mum trains, too -- but she didn't
tell me what her mum does or how well it works.
I guess she wanted to make it a surprise when
it went up on YouTube -- which happened
So here's a video showing what Keris' mum does
in her workouts. And it's pretty darn cool. It
actually reminds me of the workouts that Jack
LaLanne used to teach on his old TV show. Fun
and effective stuff that you can do right in
your own living room.
Watch how Keris' mum does turns the house
into a gym by using tables, chairs and the
stairs instead of equipment, and how she gets
it done by using kettlebells for weights. It
goes to show that you can get a great workout
with the most basic of equipment.
Also note how she performs her reps -- none of
that silly bouncing half-way rep stuff, none
of that race the clock stuff, and none of the
heave and hope for the best stuff. Every rep
of every exercise is done in perfect form,
with deep focus and total precision.
And no, she's not throwing huge barbells through
the air -- but she doesn't have to. She's doing
a PERFECT workout -- perfect because it is
perfectly suited to her age, her needs and
her training goals. Ultimately, that's what
we all should be doing.
And as far as results go, look closely when you
see the gut work. Those are washboard abs on a
woman who (according to her daughter) is close
to 60 years old. (Personally, I would have
guessed a lot younger.)
So head on over and take a look -- and hit the
LIKE button, and feel free to leave a comment.
A word of encouragement or a short "Good job!"
would be nice. In fact, we ought to try to add
100 or more of those over the next 24 hours.
Just to show some support.
Yeah -- that would be good. Let's work together
to make this thing go viral. That will be the
Dino Nation's project for the day. Watch,
like and share:
As always, thanks for reading and have a
great day. If you train today, make it
a good one.
Yours in strength,
P.S. Here are two things that would be a great
addition to any train at home workout:
P.S. 2. My other books and courses, DVD's and Legacy
of Iron books are right here. If you like hard work
and heavy iron, these are for YOU:
P.S. 3. Thought for the Day: "It's not WHERE you
train, it's HOW you train that counts." -- Brooks
