Beginner's Advice

Start by building a foundation. These are the basics: pull-ups, dips, push ups. Follow the 3 steps below for each exercise.

Step #1 Master these basics. When perfecting the form, always remember quality over everything else. (i.e. straight form, controlled, full ROM)

Step #2 Find out how many you can do of each exercise with proper form. This will give you a baseline to work off of and grow from.

Step #3 Set goals, both short-term and long-term (i.e. # of reps, improving form etc.) If you are unable to perform a single rep, your goal may be to perform a static hold at the top of the rep for 10 seconds.

Be relentless, determined, passionate and patient (aka Bar-baric!)
