Yesterday, I had the opportunity to interview Adam Steer and Ryan Murdock, who are known around these parts as the “Bodyweight Coaches.” I’ve known these fellas for awhile now, and have actually interviewed them both separately in the past (Adam’s interviews are here and here, and Ryan’s is here). But it’s been a few years, and truth be told, I’ve been meaning to get both of them on the phone for awhile now.
You see, these days, Adam and Ryan have been collaborating on a variety of projects in the bodyweight training realm. And given that a lot of you are interested in both bodyweight training and fat loss, I thought it would be good to get both of them on the phone to talk training for a bit. More specifically, to talk bodyweight training for home fitness and fat loss. And that’s just what we did. I sent them a list of questions, got on Skype, and we talked for over an hour to give you some ideas on how to leverage bodyweight training combined with some key nutrition and lifestyle strategies to help you burn fat and get lean at home.
There’s some really good info, a few key insights (aka golden nuggets), and tons of ideas to help you in your efforts to create a healthier, stronger, leaner you – right from home. Plus, perhaps most valuable of all, is some good ol’ fashioned perspective (aka a reality check). So, if that’s something that would interest you, have a listen!

How I got in Shape for the First Time in my Life using Bodyweight Exercises
Most people don’t know this about me, but I wasn’t always a fit guy. Actually, I was a pretty chubby kid from time to time growing up. Although, I was fortunate that my parents signed me up for sports and supported me in that area, which helped to balance my otherwise sedentary lifestyle. You see, besides playing sports, I also liked playing video games, which isn’t exactly the most physically active thing you can do. Combine that with school and you have a fairly inactive off-season, if you know what I mean. I had my off-season fun (video games), and my in-season training (sports). So, every new sports season would come around, and I’d have to fight really hard to get back in shape – not all that unlike the predicament a yo-yo dieter faces. But all that changed one day in my parents poorly-lit, dusty basement. It was in that basement where my love of physical training was born and forged – deep in the night.
You see, my father bought me a book called The Marine Corps 3X Fitness Program, and that little book sparked a flame that quickly turned into an obsession. So, what usually happened was after I could barely keep my eyes open to keep playing on my computer, I would head down to the basement to workout before bed and I started doing pullups, pushups, and situps like a madman – usually around 11pm. I just got obsessed with improving my performance. I did bodyweight exercises, and eventually got a weight set, too. Yeah, those plastic ones with a bench that was so shaky that I was sure it would collapse eventually – pinning me helplessly beneath the massive weights (note: I may be exaggerating about the actual poundage slightly). But my roots were in bodyweight training, and I’m a bit lucky in that regard.
Why Bodyweight Training Rocks (in a nutshell)
Bodyweight training can be done by anyone, anywhere, and it works really really well. It’s especially good for building a foundation of strength in beginner and intermediate trainees and, done correctly, it teaches whole body integration of strength and conditioning. It can be used for a variety of training goals like fat loss, muscle building, strength and conditioning, and performance enhancement. Plus, it’s pretty cool to master your own bodyweight and build a high strength to weight ratio. And did I mention it works really really well?

There’s nothing quite like embodying the movement qualities of a venomous, stinger-whipping arachnid. Maybe it’s the ability to strike at a moments notice, or the cool feeling you get from rapidly redirecting your limbs in a coordinated, yet unpredictable manner. Then again, we might be over-complicating this. Maybe it’s simply the pincers. What I wouldn’t give for eight legs and a pair of pincers!
Fortunately for the human race, we don’t need to transform into scorpions to experience the sheer excitement that their movement abilities offer. Don’t believe me? Well, have a look at this…

So, last month, I wrote up a glowing review of Scott Sonnon’s TACGYM program. Loved everything about it. Fantastic program through and through. Then a couple weeks ago, Ryan Murdock and Adam Steer (known online as the “bodyweight coaches” and whom I’ve interviewed before) send me a copy of their Shapeshifter Body Redesign Program – another superb product that I’ve been looking forward to since last year. And now I hear that Shane Heins is coming out with another clubbell training program this summer. Ay yie yie! It’s hard to keep up with these guys.
Anyways, over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been taking a close look at everything in the Shapeshifter Program. And you know me. I’m critical, and I’ll be brutally honest about what I think – even if it hurts. Fortunately for them, I have mostly good things to say!
There’s a lot of buzz surrounding this program, and there are a lot of people hyping it up. So, I’m just going to cut the fluff and tell you like it is. If you want to know exactly what you get, the product-related pro’s and con’s, and who it’s best suited for (and not best suited for), then continue reading. Continue reading The Shapeshifter Body Redesign Program – Complete Review
Note: the full Shapeshifter Body Redesign Program will go on sale tomorrow, June 21, 2011 (official launch day). I’ve got my product review mostly written already, and will have it published by midnight tonight – promise! It looks like a lot of people are gearing up to promote it, so it’s going to create quite the buzz. As always, if you want a comprehensive, honest review of the total package, I’ll have it for you here. I’ll cover the pro’s and con’s, and offer my advice for who I think the program is actually best suited for – so that your grandma and the rest of the bingo club doesn’t end up with it. There will also be a special prize giveaway free for all my readers, and a special bonus for those who do decide to purchase the program. Yep. I take care of my own.
While reviewing the full program, I tried out a couple of the workouts, and filmed this one to show you today. I wasn’t sure if they would appreciate me publishing one of the actual workouts from the main product (they’re cool guys, and probably wouldn’t care, but still), so you’ll get this teaser that was part of the launchpad program that Ryan and Adam released in advance. There is a bodyweight workout, complete with warmup and cooldown exercises, and a bonus “neuroboost” workout for using on your recovery days. Enjoy!
