YogiGym® for Body Weight Workouts

Over the past 10 months finding new and interesting ways to work out has been a regular part of the lose weight be fit process. One of the additions to my home workouts has become the YogiGym®, using the handles as a means to add TRX styled workouts.

Now traveling and living on a small island off the coast of Cancun, Mexico, there is no GoodLife down the street. Goodlife is easy. Get off your couch and go to the gym. Working out from home, let alone in a tropical country can be difficult

This past January myself and a friend trapped indoors by rain, had to find a way to do some sort of activity. My friend, not used to being cooped up, especially in Mexico, needed to work out! Enter the YogiGym®, some research on Google and we have a workout using the handles and our bodyweight.

Since then the YogiGym® has become a regular part of my workout routine. I created a number of Tabata workouts focused on body weight exercises which included a full body and upper body portion done on the YogiGym®. These have become some of the best workouts I get. For 2 solid days after I can feel the burn.

Using the handles attach your rig to a wall or an open space by a hook.
Different types of exercises require you use the different sized handles. Below is my typical full body workout with the Yogi Gym

Tabata Style (Create images of each with handles / Short video)

Tabata is a form of HIIT in which 20/10 means 20 seconds of all-out exercise followed by 10 seconds of rest. This adds up to four minutes total. Generally done in 3-5 sets focused on different body groups. The below workout incorporates full body. Modifications can be made to accommodate different levels of strength and fitness.

Front squat
High row
Tricep press
Bicep curl
Forward lunge
Modified row
Chest press
Standing Roll Out

I repeat for 3 sets doing this routine 2-3 times in a week. Having the YogiGym® makes it so much simpler to modify and complete TRX styled workouts without having to buy additional equipment.
