Working Out Wherever You Are - The Power of Body-weight Exercises
I remember the first time I saw a Hannibal Video on YouTube I was amazed at the things and the body weight workouts he was able to do using resources that are available in most community parks, resources like jungle gyms etc.

If you have never seen a Hannibal video, here is one with him and Barilla doing their thing as usual.
Getting Ripped Using Body-weight Exercises
I have written a lot about body-weight exercises in the past and I will link to those posts at the end of this post , I have also written about my own personal experiences from using body-weight training. I believe that body-weight training can be a very effective way to build a lean muscular physique like the physiques of male gymnasts and people who do complex and simple body-weight exercises like the ones done in the video above.
To get results from doing body-weight exercises one must be consistent and like with weights people do progressive overload, with body-weight exercises, you have to progressively increase the difficulty and intensity of your body-weight exercises.
You have to progress from normal shoulder width push ups to close grip push ups, to doing 100 rep sets, to being able to do one arm push ups, you have to progress from doing body weight squats to doing pistols (single legged squats), you have to progress from doing pull ups/ chin ups and simple abs exercises like hanging leg raises and sit ups to being able to do front levers. My point is the more you do body weight, exercises the stronger and more lean muscle you gain but that means you have to do more difficult exercises, higher reps, shorter breaks, or no breaks at all so that you challenge yourself and bring your body to the next level.

Top 3 New UK Fitness Models:
Ryan terry is a guy who used to be a plumber before entering Mr Great Britain and winning the crown. He then went on to take part in Mister International 2010, where he again took the crown. Ever since then his career in the modelling industry has been on the rise. He is also a USN sponsored athlete. Ryan has a history in sports doing things like gymnastics, football and swimming in his school days, no wonder he eventually made his way back into fitness. From the videos I have watched of him, he seems to be very friendly and polite. He interacts well with fans on his Facebook page and on his Twitter profile.

Adam also has a back ground in sports, he used to be a sprinter until the age of 20 when due to injury problems he chose to call it quits and begin a career in fitness/Bodybuilding. His most distinctive features are his well developed legs, which were well developed even before he chose to start looking into bodybuilding as a possible future career. I will not go into much detail about him because I feel that has been covered in this article in an interview he did with Simply Shredded http://www.simplyshredded.com/aesthetic-overload-adam-charlton-talks-with-simplyshredded-com.html
Kirk won a cover model competition in 2010, to begin his career as a fitness model. Before winning the competition he was a plumber. After winning the cover model competition he became a personal trainer because as he said in his December 2011 interview with Muscle & Fitness UK Edition (By Sam Bond) “I grew tired of seeing people waste their time in the gym. People were continually asking me for advice anyway so it made good sense to switch to personal training. I love how I can make a difference as a trainer and I’ve even helped a client reach the finals of a cover model competition like I did.”
