Here’s today’s question:
I’m loving Combat Conditioning. I’m doing 3 full-body workouts every week. Different bodyweight exercises each session.
How frequently do you work out now at the age of 58?
You’re still a young man, Matt.
Hello Kyle. Glad to see you’re enjoying Combat Conditioning and are getting your workouts in.
As for how often I train, the answer is at least once a day, oftentimes twice a day, and sometimes, three times. My martial arts workouts take up more than half of all my training and are the most time consuming. The bodyweight workouts I do are over pretty quickly. You don’t need much each day to be kicking ass.
Combat Conditioning, of course, is my most well-known and famous program, but the exercises in Farmer Burns 1914 mail-order couse, Lessons in Wrestling and Physical Culture, are turning heads all over the world.
Basic, simple bodyweight exercises are the foundation of health and functional fitness/athleticism. The basics, of their own accord, can and do become advanced exercises. Think of it in the same way you would boxing: There are four basic punches. All of them are simple, but the more you work them, the more advanced they become due to internal changes that take place within the body, the breath and the mind.
Keep at it, Kyle, and you’ll go far.
