So I have completed 16 weeks of the body weight body building secrets program including the 4 week introduction phase. The program is broken up into four week phases that have bldyweight training either 3 or 4 days a week. Each workout focuses on a different area of fitness, these being speed and strength, conditioning, muscle building, or hybrid days.
This program is seriously fun. Every workout over the 16 weeks was different. You never do the same workout twice. This is actually my main reason for choosing it.
It covers most of my broad goals and improves your overall fitness. For me it is functional but it really depends on your goals. It will introduce you to new ways of bbodyweight. I actually found some new exercises in the program that I think are fantastic bodyweihgt pike or atomic push ups. It includes an introduction program that zach recommends doing a few times if you struggle but my impression is your better to do this if you are already at a basic fitness level.
It is not equipment free and may require some purchases. Please read the equipment section below.

It is a program not a manual. Ok it does come with good examples of people training in similar ways but this is not a book detailing the complete science behind the program.
It just a good program. So I had to make a judgement call whether it was no rest or not.
Zach sends out a lot of motivational emails. For me this is not something I need but if you like this sort of thing it is there.
Zach sends a couple of emails each week, everything from personal experiences to recommended reading is discussed. Personally I loved this, I did It over summer and loved well at the time hated the sprint work. Training outside is great but I know not everyone loves it. Ok the program is not equipment free, Zach recommends that you buy a weight vest, power wheel, gymnastics rings, and a jungle gym xt some trx like system. Now those are the recommended but I got by with just the rings, a ab wheel and later the weighted vest.
For seceets weighted vest initially I just used a backpack with kettlebells inside it. It works fine but long term a weighted vest is more comfortable. I have a mir pro which I can load up to 30 kgs but have never had more than 25 kgs in it.
For the power wheel a cheap ab wheel will cover the roll outs, but for the other exercises I had to get creative. Power wheel pike push ups and leg curls I found the best thing was the swings in my local playground. Power wheel crawls I took a simpler approach, I have smooth wooden floor at home so I just crawled in a plank position wearing socks. I actually think this is boxybuilding harder than using a power wheel.
For the jungle gym xt I just substituted with the gymnastics rings. Rings I would recommend buying anyway as they are a fun piece of equipment, lightweight and easy to set up.
It consists of 1. It also means I can judge my myself according to the British army ratings for my age bad,normal, good,very good, excellent. Max push ups in 2 minutes — now 60, rating — very good for my age.
No baseline test to compare with. Max sit ups in 2 minutes — now 63, rating — very good for my age. For strength I decide to compare my self with my results from 9 months of convict conditioning for pull up and head stand push up.
I think if you followed a better diet you stats would blow these away. I guess it should also be noted I have been training constantly for 18 months at the start of the program so gains do come slower now.
This has been the most fun program I have done so far. I think it would be ideally suited for someone with a reasonable level of fitness who is looking for a change in the way they train. I lost over 1. It feels bovyweight complete and and very zacb balanced. I loved the fact I can run faster without having run more than m in a row in the last 4 months.
My pull up strength has doubled, as well as the size of my lats. It can also be combined with weights if you want. Zach include a manual for combining the even-eh body building program with the 5 x 5 program. If this program is anything to go by I think the rest of the underground strength programs will be worth a look at. The last week has been azch interesting though. The muscle building workout was all slow motion reps 3 seconds up 3 seconds down.
It again reminded me of the affects that candice can have on a workout.

I could only manage sets of 4 or 5 when doing the pull up and my muscles were tired for days after the workout. It was 6 mins of 5 pull ups, 10 squat jumps, and 5 lunge jumps on each leg. This short little routine had me absolutely gasping for air and my heart was bu like crazy. Definitely something to keep in mind if a build my own program.
I must admit it feels a bit weird to not be doing anything today. Plus it will give me more time to write the complete program review.

This week was all circuits that you just had to complete as fast as possible. It also introduced the weighted backpack and the ring push ups.
Both of which zacch did a number on my muscles and hopefully that will translate into growth. This has also had the shortest workouts so far. This mornings work out was 4 rounds of 25 squats, 10 lunge jumps each leg, and then a m sprint. Ok it was only 15 minutes of my life but it was a painful 15 mins.
This is why I’ve created ‘The Bodyweight Bodybuilding’ System….
The programme seems of have an easier week at the start so I have not had a deloading week at all. Today I actually did 2 times a set of 5 clapping push up followed by a set of pull ups with 5 kgs extra weight. Phase 1 has you training four days a week with each week being a different type of workout. Each week seems to increase in intensity so you have a pretty constant increase in strength.
My diet over the last 2 weeks has also been alot cleaner with only one non paleo meal on saturday night.
Well I started bodyweight bodybuilding today doing the first workout of the 4 week intro program. I will write a program review for convict conditioning but want to give my self time to review my training log and get my stats correct. The first workout was very easy though this program will change my mornings a little. It also meant I had a good sweat going by the end of the workout. Though this was not a conditioning day the reduced rest does make you puff a bit more.
I will also try and take more notes and add a smily face to my workout logs. I have also taken all my measurements and photos this time to really see the progress. So my measurements at the start are.
