If you have trouble following workouts or sometimes find them confusing, don’t worry. Von Moger makes it all extremely clear, easy, and accessible in the video. You get to follow him along through the workout as he does it, so there’s no issue figuring out how he gets it all done. It is a kind of a rough workout that is definitely recommended for intermediate level athletes and above.
“I’ve been avoiding the daytime workouts because it’s hot, but there’s still all these gyms closed here,” Von Moger gave as his reasoning for continuing to work out in his garage and backyard instead of shooting a video like he typically would in a gym. This makes the video especially relevant for those of us who feel like we’re stuck in endless quarantine. You can easily lift weights at home and these exercises are easy to do without fancy equipment.
Von Moger also had some advice for people who are just starting out on their own fitness journey.

What's my advice for someone just starting out in the gym? – Practice good form/technique before trying to take on heavy weights . – Warm up stretch properly before starting, drink plenty of water/bcaas, stay focused don’t get distracted by people or CrossFit . – Prioritize free weights and compound exercises in your program like squats, deadlifts, bench presses, barbell rows, dumbbell curls and presses. These ones help build a strong foundation for you later. If you wanna be big you need to do these 😉 . – Increase your protein intake, especially after a workout . – And.. enjoy your workouts, have fun, don’t rush. The gains will come it takes time. Just Be patient. It’s a great feeling having muscles.. I recommend them to everyone.
Von Moger is a big fan of pre-workout and stretching before working out; he takes almost half an hour in this video to prepare himself for the exercise. This is a great habit to cultivate early because it does make your workouts much safer and more effective.
Increasing your protein intake after a workout is another classic Calum Von Moger tip that should definitely be practiced by everyone. These are things that literally anyone looking to improve their strength and performance can do, so you should be doing them. They’re not difficult and they form the cornerstones of a successful fitness habit. Now get out there, check the supplements Calum von Moger uses, and happy lifting!
