Gymchat 165 - Use What's Around You

Making good use of what's available.


Quick reminder : in this week's Gymchat we'll be discussing the various ways to train when you simply don't have the equipment available. Join us for Use What's Around You.

Whether you're just starting out, on-the-road or simply don't have the finances available; there's not much you can do in the way of effective strength-training without some decent equipment. Or is there?

This week we're taking a look at the many ways to get a solid workout in, using the things that are around you. A little bit of bodyweight work, a heavy object or two and a whole lot more. Helping us explore this fascinating topic is none other than combat athlete Andrew Nalepa. Fantastic.
