We designed this program to be done at your home or local playground or fitness park, so you won’t need a gym to do the workouts. Although we do use some equipment in the program, you may have some of it at home already, and we’ll show you plenty of ways to substitute equipment-based exercises when you don’t have access to any at all.

Why Do We Use Resistance Bands?
We’ve partnered with Rubberbanditz to make this program as awesome as possible, and use their Rubberbanditz resistance bands to make bodyweight exercises either easier or harder.
Not sure how the same exercise band can do both?
Think about doing triceps dips on a parallel bar. If you aren’t strong enough yet to do dips, you can wrap the band around the bar, grasp each end of it with your hands and rest your knees on top of the band. That way, the band will remove some resistance from your bodyweight so that pushing yourself up gets easier.
If you can easily do triceps dips with your own bodyweight, you can also make them harder by using a band. Just place the middle of the band around your neck and grasp each end of the band in hand to add resistance to your dips as you ascend.
Not all of the exercises in this program are performed with a band, but we highly recommend you get one or two to get the most out of the program.
Frequently Asked Questions
What equipment do you need to do this program?
- One or more resistance bands, depending on your fitness level
- Access to a pull up bar
- Access to parallel bars or a dip bar
- A jump rope
If you don’t have access to this equipment 100% of the time, don’t worry—we offer plenty of substitution ideas for those times when you don’t have any equipment at all.
Is one band enough or do I need more?
Ideally you’ll have at least two or three bands to be able to swap them out for different exercises and double up when necessary. We recommend experimenting and having a couple of different bands to try for different exercises in your workout. That way you can always double up if you need more resistance.
What if the program is too hard for me?
The program is not meant for complete beginners. You should have at least some experience with bodyweight training, but you don’t have to have experience with bands—we have all the instructions for you!
In many exercises, you can choose whether you want to do the advanced, intermediate, or beginner version of it (some exercises have just one version that is suitable for all levels). Choose the one that is best for your level—the one that you’re able to do but is still challenging!
Do I only get the access to one particular level only—advanced, intermediate or beginner?
No! By enrolling, you’ll have access to all levels. You can do the intermediate version of one exercise and beginner of another and so on. Better yet, you can repeat the program later at a higher level to keep challenging yourself.
Can I still do yoga/endurance training/sport-specific training along with this program?
Yes! This program will help you build up strength and endurance and can be done alongside your handstand training, pistols, muscle ups, planche training, rock climbing, yoga, surfing, or whatever sports or activities make you happy.
Just make sure to take at least one or two days off a week to allow your body some much needed rest, and if you’re feeling extra exhausted take a week to deload.
