This book has potential to improve every workout you do for the rest of your life. Smart Bodyweight Training is more than a book about how to achieve superior results through bodyweight training. It’s about using the discipline of calisthenics as a tool to learn how to use every muscle in your body in a smarter and more effective way. Author Matt Schifferle first discovered bodyweight training after years of struggling with classic weight and cardio workouts.
Within a few months, of using little more than a pull-up bar, Matt found new levels of strength and health through using techniques that required a fraction of the time and effort of costly gym-based workouts. Unsatisfied with classic step-by-step calisthenics routines, Matt has created an infinitely customizable approach that delivers fast, proven results for anyone from the rank beginner to the elite athlete.
The phrase “work smarter, not harder," has become so commonplace it's almost become a cliche but how many times do we take this advice to heart? These days, a busy schedule and an over-caffeinated lifestyle seem to be the norm. When was the last time you ran into someone who said they weren’t busy, tired or stressed?
This idea of always working harder particularly applies to fitness and exercise. Our fitness culture loves to extol the virtues of blood, sweat, and tears. A quick scroll through social media makes it clear that hard work is what all the cool kids are doing while working easier or taking shortcuts is for wimps and sissies.
It’s easy to understand why hard work is put on a pedestal. In a world of scams, inflated hype, and empty promises, hard work is quickly becoming one of the few reliable ways to invest your time and energy. Sooner or later, everyone gives up the search for shortcuts and resolves to get results through brute force.
Hard work is incredibly important, but while this strategy can work for a little while, it’s incredibly limiting and even dangerous. This is because hard work is extremely hard to scale. Eventually, everyone reaches the limit of how hard they can work.
Trying to succeed through brute force is like running at a wall as fast as you can. You’ll make some initial progress but eventually, you’ll have to stop moving forward. You may even crash and suffer burnout or injury. Once you reach that wall, your only options are to either quit and walk away, or you can continue to push against that wall in an attempt to maintain your results. Continuing to push your limits will prevent you from falling back, but you’re now stuck working as hard as possible for the rest of your life just to stay where you are.
No matter where you are in your fitness journey, your best workouts are still yet to come not just by working harder, but through working smarter than ever before.
