Who Else Wants to Lose 17 Pounds of Bodyfat ... Gain 6 Pounds of Lean, Functional Muscle ... AND Get Faster, Stronger, and More Athletic ... ALL at the SAME TIME?

I did it using these unusual bodyweight training methods ... and in today's article, I'm going to show exactly how YOU can do it too!

Are you tired of traditional lifting programs that help you add a bit of muscle, but leave you inflexible, less athletic, and injured in the process?

Do you have dings and injuries from years of hard training that make traditional weight lifting just a bit too much for your aging body?

Are you ready to try something totally different to shock your system and experience dramatic results?

If you've answered yes to any of these questions, you owe it to yourself to read this entire website.

My name is Forest Vance. I’m a personal trainer and boot camp instructor based out of the Sacramento, CA area.

In addition to over 12 years of experience in the fitness industry, I have a Master’s of Science in Human Movement, as well as being a Certified Progressive Calisthenics Instructor.

I want to share a little bit about my own personal story – and most importantly, how what I’ve learned can help YOU.

The summer after my senior year of High School, I needed to get in shape. I was preparing for my first year of college football.

Double days were starting in the beginning of August, and I was NOT about to show up to training camp out of shape.

Problem was, I had been partying it up for the previous months. Drinking the beers, chasing the girls, doing all the stuff any red-blooded 18 year old guy does! ...

And while I was having a lot of fun, I had gotten OUT of my peak physical condition. I was probably 15 pounds over where I needed to be, and my conditioning just wasn't there.

A lot of the training I did in high school was bodybuilding-style workouts. Where you would focus on a specific body part for the day, hit 4 or 5 different exercises for that part of the body, and call it a day.

It worked well for building bigger muscles, but not so much for getting me into athletic shape and peak condition.

I needed a training plan that would get me ready for training camp, and turn me into a lean, mean, fighting shape machine.

I read an article in a magazine about Herschel Walker's workout routine.

(In case you're not familiar - Herschel Walker was the 1982 Heisman Trophy winner and one of the all time greatest physical specimens to walk the earth!)

He did a LOT of calisthenics - type movements (pull ups, push ups, squats, lunges, burpees, swinging on the monkey bars), as well as various running, sprinting, jumping, running the stadium steps, jumping rope, etc.

He didn't lift weights - in a traditional sense - at ALL!

I basically followed the outline of his program - and though it could have been better planned out (which I am going to show you how to do in just a minute) ... it WORKED!!

Flash forward to 6 weeks into the program. I'm down 17 pounds, up 6 pounds of muscle, and feeling great. It's the 4th of July celebration in downtown Colfax - the small town in the Northern California Sierra Foothills where I grew up.

We're fooling around in the downtown area, but then we hear that the fireworks are about to start in 2 minutes ...

And we are planning on watching the fireworks from the roof of my friend's house.

His house is at the top of the hill, overlooking the downtown.

Perfect view for the fireworks, but a few hundred yards from where we were - and uphill!

So we take off running to try and make it to his roof in time.

I remember sprinting up the hill ... getting 50, 100, 200 yards in ... and still going strong!

And it's one of those weird little life moments that you remember ... and I was like ...

"Damn! I'm in the best shape I've ever been in!" ...
... and I can say that I did it 100% with bodyweight - based training.

Then, the other day, almost 20 years later, I was running the stadium steps Hughes Stadium here in the Sacramento, CA area, and it brought me right back.

I got the exact same feeling I got almost 20 years ago when I was running up the hill to watch fireworks from my friend's house.

I at that moment, I realized that I needed to create a training course to help YOU achieve these same results ...

Now introducing …

Check Out What a Few of My Clients Have Said About Training Programs I've Created Like This One

“With a bodyweight training program , I can do resistance work whenever and wherever I want. Without the need for equipment, I can work my body in a different way, and in the process provide myself with new challenges. In combination with my kettlebell training – and as a complement to it – my training remains fresh & enjoyable.”

Ron R.

“I love the videos and the “down to earth” approach you have for fitness training.”

Ron C.

“I’m already found out that doing body weight exercises are one of the best all around toning, strengthening and no hassle systems. I can work out at home and at the gym to get really warmed up for my kettlebell circuits then finish off with some more body weight exercises. While I’m just starting out on this, I find when at the gym some folks are amused at first when they are watching me and then when I’m done and totally drenched they ask me what the heck were those exercises? I’ve been reading these updates for a while and always find new exercises to use.”

Gabriel C.

“Thanks, for all the great ideas and workouts….. I use them personally and in my classes…..thanks.”


Exercise is about functional movement. The ability to complete everyday tasks as easily as possible. Especially as we age. That requires us to have the ability to move our own body weight. What better way to train then. Use your own body weight. Target the muscles that enable us to move our own body weight, by moving our own body weight, Simple. 

Craig W.

Having used progressively heavy weights that resulted in injuries that required time off to heal, I am a firm believer in the value of body weight exercises. Theyve helped me heal and recover faster than I expected.

Thomas F.

As a personal trainer I strive to challange my clients as much as possible. Bodyweight exercises are the perfect way to train in a functional way and make it fun!


MORE Proof

If you are a bit skeptical that you can gain strength and size with body weight – only training, I totally understand – I used to be, too. I wanted to provide you with just a few examples of folks who train almost if not completely exclusively with body weight only training and have muscular, strong, athletic physiques:

Gymnasts are known for their strong, muscular, athletic physiques.  They maintain a VERY muscular condition – in most cases without the use of traditional weight training at all – but rather through the use of advanced body weight training techniques.

Many high level athletes were know to train doing traditional and basic movements like dips, pull ups, etc – Ricky Henderson is one specific one that comes to mind:

FINALLY look at prison inmates. In many cases they do not have access to weights at all. Yet they are VERY muscular – through the use of advanced body weight only training.
