If you're pressed for time and need a great workout with little to no equipment, why not try a body weight complex? It's a very effective form of training that smokes just about every muscle in your body when done correctly! I have a much more detailed article about them coming up in the January Issue of the FREE Jungle Fit Magazine! It will also include a workout involving the complex shown below! Enjoy!!

So as you all might very well know ... I'm kind of a comic book nerd! So needless to say I'm more than a little pumped for the upcoming "Green Lantern" movie starring Ryan Reynolds. So to help get everyone else excited I've created this Green Lantern inspired workout! Enjoy!!

Stability balls are a pretty fun tool to change up your workouts and challenge yourself to new levels of fitness. It's sort of funny how such a simple piece of equipment has so many uses and can do everything from rehabilitate the elderly, to enhance the conditioning of an MMA fighter. The main function that the ball is designed for is strengthening your core and abdominal wall. Now if you're like most people, you probably feel more than a little stupid performing the basic exercises demonstrated on the poster located on your gym wall! Well have no fear!! I've put together a short video demonstrating a few of my favourite stability ball exercises along with a few others that don't include the ball. Each one will challenge your core/abdominal strength in unique and functional ways. If at first you have trouble performing these exercises, there are plenty of progressions and body weight exercises to help you build the strength to perform them, for more info click here!
