Hi guys ! So I've heard about the Body By Science workout, but I wondered if somebody here did it at home with bodyweight exercises or even resistance bands ? Like push-ups, lunges or something like that ? Thanks !

If you follow the book, then you know it's all about reaching failure within a narrow window of time. Most people can't do a single one-arm pushup (with proper form), but they can bust off a ton of pushups with both arms. So how to adjust the... (more)

The 1.0 g/lb figure is typically from body building circles. The fact that there are a lot X-fitters that evolved from there might have given you the impression this is what you "need" when eating paleo. I would read this article -... (more)

I thought the island was deserted? Except for a few kettlebells, barbells, plates and a bench? I would just list the basics, all bodyweight: pull ups chin ups push ups dips squats
