First, this fitness program is free. The daily workout videos are free. There is no registration required. We don’t need your email address or other personal information. This will be your own personal battle. No one can work out for you! This is a 24 hour fitness program because you choose the hours. We do buy fitness equipment along the way, but we also show you how to improvise if you don’t have any money. No one will be left behind, and if you are, it was a conscious choice on your behalf.
Do we like working out? Positively not, but we sure like having completed a workout. Always remember our motto: "You don’t have to like it, just do it!" You’ll be glad you did. Also, "Tomorrow never comes, do it now!"
Again, when it's time to do the aerobic bodybuilding, you don't have to like it, just do it! Think about what you were doing last year at this time, and then know that a year from the day you start this program you'll feel right and tight!
Our bodybuilding aerobics program is designed for men and women, young and old adults alike, those who are already in shape and those that aren’t, those who are overweight and those that are underweight, and everything in between. Everyone starts at the same place!
What will it take for the average person to successfully complete getting in the kind of kick ass shape you can be proud of? We’ll workout online with new videos every week, 5 days a week for 25 minutes sessions, plus another half hour, more or less, of an aerobic exercise of your choosing (this can even be walking). We’ll be starting it mighty easy for the first few weeks while we get psyched! Generally the equipment expenses average out to about 100 dollars a month for the average person, but some will buy nothing, while others will buy more. It’s your call!
Question: Can I get fit fast? Answer: No - This bodybuilding aerobics program by Modeling in Motion is a 12 month program, but call it 14 because those extra 2 months are for those that must miss time, especially for those not moving forward for a while in order to avoid injuries, or to do some fine tuning on any of the exercises along the way. Do NOT push an injury! Hold back and ease off while it heals. This is not Special Forces training! Do not hide an injury! Do not pretend you don’t have one! Stay at place where you were in the program until you feel you are injury free and ready to proceed. Stop entirely if you have to. Everyone has weak points and we’ll all find ours and strengthen them to reduce the risk of future injuries. If you want to try getting fit fast, find another program, try it out, then come back here. We'll be strengthening to the core!
No matter what you do, ask your doctor before you start an exercise or diet plan, and again if you feel an injury, or even think you feel an injury. It’s the only smart thing to do! If you get hurt and aggravate your injury more by not talking to your doctor and learning how to let it heal properly, you'll likely never enjoy exercising again! Also, this program is for adults 18 years and older. A younger persons body is in different stages of development and it is up to a responsible adult or guardian and their doctor to decide on which fitness programs are for them.
Again, if at any time the program seems too much, stay where you’re at in the program, or back it up a couple of weeks and stay there until you’re ready proceed. You could stay at week 8 for a couple of months if you needed to, for example, and then move on, and you would still end up finishing, where others just quit! It will only take you longer, but we plan on working out for life, so it’s all the same in end!
What is aerobic bodybuilding? Aerobic bodybuilding is building muscle while becoming aerobically fit. It’s a balancing act. We will not starve our bodies to be skinny and our workout sessions will not be long enough, or strenuous enough to gain great bulk. Not in year one at least! If you are dealing with obesity, physical rehab, or coming out of hibernation like us, have patience and feel free to stay on any week in this aerobic bodybuilding program for as long as need be before you proceed. During the aerobic bodybuilding program some will end up gaining weight, some will end up loosing it, and others will stay around the same weight while fat is traded for muscle.
A very common scenario for an average type person is to gain weight in the beginning because your appetite gets revved up from the exercise, but then as time proceeds you'll crave the foods you actually need and will stay at a weight or loose for a little while, then you will slowly put on weight as your muscles build and will then ultimately level out at your preferred level of fitness.
Also, remember that muscle weighs much more than fat per volume, so, for example, if you were overweight and weigh the same at the end of the program as you did before you began, you will be much slimmer and have an athletic shape when fit.
If you want to weigh yourself, do it once a month or so unless there is a reason you have to. Reading the scale will trick you in the first six months. Anyhow, your body will be forced into fitness and by about the 6 month point you can just look in the mirror and damn sure see what’s happening without needing the scale at all.
Your aerobic bodybuilding video guide Rex (pictured on the left at 215 lbs. after first completing the 1 year program) will be with you from start to finish, every single day for 14 months. We’ll also have guests from time to time. Rex is proof that the system works. He fell off the fitness wagon sometime after that picture and is in the same shape as your average couch potato restarting the program this time as you'll see in the 1st video. In this first video he weighs 200 pounds and is 15+ lbs. overweight, so will have to gain 30+ pounds of muscle mass, while at the same time loosing 15+ pounds of fat, over this first year to be at the fitness level where he was before with this program.
Again, take a look a Rex before he turned back into a couch potato and realize that’s about the fitness level we’re going to be shooting for in the first year. Then take a look at Rex now in the first video, and realize if he can do it, you can do it. Hell, he’s pushing 60 years of age, but don’t let that worry you, he’ll show you how to get to your personal best maximum fitness.
Yeah, we know Rex is an ugly looking joker, but he's all we've got right now!
Most of our exercises will be bodyweight exercises with the addition of added force wherever necessary. In other words, if you’re stronger than most, don’t worry, we’ll show you how to equalize your greater strength to work on an even playing field along with everyone else in the program. Ditto with less strength. We’ll all work at our personal best.
Here is a rough idea of how a workout goes. Everyone is going to gain maximum strength! If you’re the type of person that thinks a muscular body is sexy, but don’t prefer super skinny, or Muscle Beach type huge, then you’re at the right place! You could jump to the very muscular workout after the first year, but you can’t do super skinny in this program unless you’re starving yourself, in which case you’re begging for an injury, or at the very least not gaining strength as you should, so please go elsewhere!
Everyone will be built up to be the strongest they can be. We’ll do lots of pushups and pull-ups along with everything else, but our workouts will max at 10 reps (don't worry, we'll be able to make those 10 reps into a living hell). Here’s why, pushups and pull-ups, for example, are an exercise the military has used for hundreds of years for general conditioning and to level the playing field to make everyone feel as strong as one another. Well, this is not the case, as a lightweight person is putting far less power into either exercise than a heavyweight person. That is why you cannot accurately measure strength by counting pushups and pull ups. That’s just smoke and mirrors designed for Joe average guy. All athletes know you need to get on to the bench press, and then do military presses, to see who is stronger in either of those two body movements respectively. Simple physics! Strength and endurance are two different animals and we’ll be doing equal amounts of both in our aerobic bodybuilding.
Ultimately, you will neither have the most endurance nor the maximum level of strength with this program. You will be balanced and know the recognize the difference between the two, and what it takes to max in either. You will be an aerobic bodybuilder. You won’t get hung up on how many pushups a person can do, or who can dead-lift two cars with the most people in them. You will master both skills equally and be more adaptable than either extreme to a wider range of real life scenarios.
Anyhow, as long as we accept who we are, and realize there is always going to be someone who is stronger or has more endurance than we do, we will rejoice in the fact that we’re smart enough to realize that fact, and will be the strongest and most fit we can personally be in our own lives. Plus, in the real world there are always tools and other people to help you equalize things when you need to get a job done.
So ladies and gents, if this is along your line of acceptable thinking about physical fitness goals let’s get things started!
