Earlier this week, I published a review of training frames about 15 years ago. My reason for sharing old shots was twofold. Firstly, I was hoping to provide some ideas for training in the garage / at home. All videos were shot in my old house in the garage, basement and backyard. Perhaps more importantly, I wanted to repeat the message that I have been preaching for years. Simply put, the old school is still a great school. What worked many years ago continues to work today. There is no need to constantly reinvent the wheel.
Old School Training Demo
Below you will see various options for push-ups, pull-ups, squats, jumps, rolls, etc. In other words, you will see the same exercises that I continue to regularly demonstrate. Apart from living in another house, little has changed.
Substance over the flash
Continuing the theme of the old school, below is a brief discussion of this topic several years ago. The message is especially relevant today, as sports centers around the world are closed due to COVID-19. If so, you do not need to panic. You can still feel at home doing some basic exercises diligently.
For example, find someone who has consistently (over the years) performed push-ups, pull-ups, squats, lunges, jumping downhill, etc., and you will find someone healthier than most. It really is not that difficult. As I said, work hard with almost everything, and you will succeed. Specificity matters less than intention at work
Learn from the past
In old school exercises, the flash may not be enough, but they are loaded with substance. And this is another reason why it is useful to study athletes from the past. They did not fight for attention on social networks. Their focus was simple. Do the job as efficiently as possible. Much can be learned from their example.
Speaking as a professional boxing trainer, my job description is also quite simple. I prepare fighters for victory. I am not paid to be original or different. Doing work is all that matters. This is a result-oriented business. We do not receive additional credit for style and flash. No one cares what methods are used. All that I remember is the results that you produce. And although this may seem obvious, I think this is an important statement (especially in the modern world).
I don’t earn a living on social networks, and I don’t get checks for royalties because I use exercises from the past. Therefore, when I talk about the old school, I do not do it because it somehow benefits me. I'm just sharing what we use and what actually works.
In addition, I do not suggest that we never try to improve the past. We must always strive to improve what we do. With that said, recognize that there will always be more opportunities improve personality what will the opportunities be improve the methods used by this person.
