The Almost Effortless Exercise System

The Almost Effortless Exercise System is a great way to train for everyone and does not require a visit to the gym - although you can train like this in the gym also. With this system you can train anywhere without becoming exhausted, sweaty or sore during the session or afterwards.

It sounds to good to be true doesn’t it? Surely this is a gimmick, it can’t work...

Well, I am here to tell you today that it does! Some of the gains I have experienced with clients (of both sexes, and of any age) have been extraordinary, and adherence to the program has been almost 100%.

Conventional wisdom says you must train for 1 hour, 5-6 days per week and you must do mainly cardiovascular exercise. I can tell you that is just rubbish. You can train like that if you have a need to or if you wish to, but you don’t have to. You can in fact do far less (or even more) spread more evenly throughout the day and achieve so much more.

It works like this:

Let's say you're doing the squat exercise, and that you are able to do 10 squats to failure (by this we mean that you cannot do anymore; 10 is your maximum effort). The Effortless Exercise system would recommend that you do 2 squats 15-20 times a day. If you quickly do the maths that is 20-30 squats per day - but only 2 each time. Far more exercise, but no soreness! And here's the surprise: I can guarantee you that after four weeks you will be able to do 20 squats in a row instead of the 10 you were capable of before. It works every time.

Here's a recent (and very real) example:

A gentleman I train is a fan of bodyweight training (Calisthenics) but his pull ups were stuck on a maximum of 4 - and really only the first 3 were what I would have considered true pull ups. With the Effortless Exercise system I instructed him to train 1-2 reps 10-15 times a day - meaning he would do between 10 to 30 reps a day progressively, whilst never getting close to working to failure. When I tested him 4 weeks later he did 10 prefect reps of the pull up.

And this can work in the gym too: I have used the same system in a 1 hour personal training session with rest times between 30 secs - 2 mins between reps and have still achieved great results.

So, the next time you get fed up with trashing yourself and having painful sore muscles just get on the 'Almost Effortless Exercise' system and it will pay rich dividends!
