Simple Life, A Minimalist Approach to Training and Exercise


Most people don’t have much time to do anything. No thanks to technology, which is supposed to make life easier. Instead it allows more stuff to be piled on to an already overflowing plate. As the owner FitWorkz of a 24 hour commercial gym and hybrid training center, I can tell you that MOST have only 8-10 times per month to exercise.


That means you can forget the 6-day per week bodybuilding Joe Meathead approach to training. Your schedule simply does not allow for it. It also means that you need a programming that can be done in a short amount of time a few times a week that will still produce results. Results in terms of maintained or improved health and quality of life.


At FitWorkz we offer functional training that fits bill. This type of training 2-3 times per week gets the job done. In the field results from members and clients proves it. But what if you can’t get to the gym regularly because of work or family commitments?


Enter the simple life, minimalist approach to exercise and training and exercise that you can do at home.


You need a few pieces of equipment. Check out craigslist, eBay, Facebook market place, varage sale… you get the idea. All you need are a few dumbbells or even one barbell with a few plates. You are not looking for an entire gym. Look for deals! There are plenty of people looking to sell equipment for cheap and some happy to let you have it as long as you come pick it up.



Here is a program similar to the one I did today.


Pullup (do them off the rafters, a beam,

Dumbbell Goblet Squat

Dumbbell Squat Press

Dumbbell Incline Row

Dumbbell Deadlift

Dumbbell Hang Clean

Med Ball Slam

Dumbbell Heavy Carry

Plank to Pushup Position

Rest 30 Seconds


Do six rounds or giant sets or circuits or whatever vernacular is the norm where you are.


First Round

6 Reps

Second Round

5 Reps

Third Round

4 Reps

Fourth Round

3 Reps

Fifth Round

2 Reps

Sixth Round

1 Rep


This will take all of 20-30 minutes. If not less!
