Get ripped without only body weight? You bettcha!

Sometimes what worked in 1904 can work today!  Saw this article link posted by Sydney Brown, elite cyclist from Lincoln.  100 years before Tony Horton (P90x), Gregg Glassman (CrossFit founder) or Jillian Michaels – J.P. Muller introduced a body weight only exercise regiment.  Based on a quick rotation through swings, pushups, situps, etc for 15 minutes each day, the idea was revolutionary at the time.  It also confronted the sedentary, gaunt, corset and tux wearing society of the day.  Hmm, wonder if people think we’ve grown a bit soft?

Take a peek of the article from Slate.
