Working out comes as a second nature to some men. For the rest of us it’s a tedious, time-consuming, and often expensive activity. It’s not easy to commit to working out at a gym, or joining a fitness class, such as the ever-so-popular Cross Fit. Many men simply do not have the have time, budget, energy, discipline – or a combination of two or more of these factors. The end result is that many guys get out of shape, especially the older they get. And by out of shape, we don’t just mean actual “shape”, but their overall health and well-being, slowly deteriorates.
Here, at ELMENS we believe in “working in”, which is basically working out at home, or wherever you are. It’s actually easy if you think about it. You can just use your best friend – a.k.a. your smartphone – as your very own personal trainer. There are plenty of apps out there – many of them free – that enable your phone to do just that. No more driving, paying, nor committing to a fixed time window; you can just download an app, and train for as little as four minutes per day.
Most apps don’t even require any extra equipment, as most of them use your own body weight, which is the entire rationale behind the “bodyweight” class.
Here are some apps that we personally use, and which we have found to be very effective… happy training, Mens 🙂
