How Can You Build Muscle Without Weights?

What the mind believes:

“I can only transform my body in the gym using weights and gym equipment”

What the muscle categorically knows:

Your muscle doesn’t know what it’s holding or where it is.

All it knows is the tension and contractional force (squeeze) you can place upon it through a range of motion.

Regardless of the tool used to do so.

I want you to re-read that.

Think about it.

This is how it hit me 7 years ago like a train…

If the muscle doesn’t know what it’s holding…

Then why the F*** am I constantly striving to be in a busy, expensive, crowded, ego-driven gym environment holding a weight.

I could be holding anything! I could be anywhere!

[LIGHTBULB DING!]

This is why and how I have only used a suspension trainer and resistance band for the last 7 years to build muscle. At home and when travelling the world.

The tool used to do so is irrelevant.

This is why my clients also have such good success…

It’s started with changing your mindset of belief.

How Can You Build Muscle Without Weights

How do we do this ‘tension and contractual force (squeeze)’?

Using INTERNAL mindful muscle connection and constantly practising to master the effective exercise execution technique.

Building muscle and transforming your body, is in the mind.

If my better half would let me, I would get this statement tattooed on my left arm. It’s the most powerful thing you can embed into your mind for endless progression.

Your transformational fitness results are only limited by your mind, by your internal focus.

I speak from a frustrated experience…

Many years ago when I trained in a gym, I was the complete opposite to this.

I focused on EXTERNAL first and last – how much weight can I add to the bar – lift the bar.

Without ever appreciating, understanding or mastering INTERNAL.

Eventually, progression got stale, injuries became common and workouts were mentally dissatisfying.

It wasn’t until I left that environment with a travel backpack, TRX suspension trainer and resistance band AND a resounding strong will to maintain, if not to improve, my overall fitness that everything changed.

And I began to see workouts as a form of INTERNAL meditation as well as a physical challenge.⁣

It’s been 6 years now since I ever stepped foot inside a gym. And my body and mind have never been better.

It wasn’t until I was in my own space, mastering internal muscle-centric technique that my body really transformed.

When my mind connected with my body the results were outstanding.

Both physically and mentally.

How Can You Build Muscle Without Weights?

With any other tool that is versatile and functional, such as:

  • A TRX suspension trainer (my favourite)
  • A resistance band
  • Your body weight

Its the technique and mindful connection to your body, mind muscle connection, that matter!

Here’s to your fitness freedom!

First up, welcome! Out of all the millions of websites out there thank you for visiting this one. Secondly, your interest and motivation will change your life. It did for me and thousands of fitness freedom athletes in our community of all ages.

The best place to start would be with the Beginner TRX Total Body Transformation Program. It’s the most popular Program and will teach you the effective muscle-centric TRX technique to transform your body and begin your life-changing journey.

If you’re seeking a resistance band Program, get stuck into the Band Muscle Toning Program which is for beginners/intermediates to learn the band muscle-centric technique and transform their body with just one resistance band.

Do you have any training courses or Programs?

Yes absolutely, I have TRX Suspension Trainer & Resistance Band Programs for all levels and fitness goals. They will teach you the effective 'Muscle-Centric Technique' that will transform your body! And cover everything from nutrition to mindset and performance execution.

Where are you based?

I am mainly based in London, UK. But I love travelling, specifically backpacking our beautiful world and experiencing other cultures... So most likely I may be based on the side of a mountain or little beach hut. Perhaps I’ll even meet you in person at some point… That would be just awesome!

Confused Or Overwhelmed? Ask Me Anything...

I've been there too. The world of health and fitness is a minefield. 99% of diet advice is "clickbait" or "cookie cutter." And Gyms make you believe you have to pay them $$$'s a month to get the body you want.

Ask me anything and I'll do my best to advise you correctly...
