Athlean X athlete progam. Worth $77? Watch
I was wondering if the Athlean X athlete beginners programme is worth $77 = £60. Is it? To give me some guidance and structure which I desperately need.
He is a youtuber with 5mil+ subscribers.
Anyone have any experience or know?
Personally I made my own program based on dozens and dozens of videos of his that I watched (and a couple of other channels as well as one website).
As to his program being athletic - well it's in the name, and he is a PT for big sporting teams. That's what the goals are. To make you more athletic. If you look at him you should see that anyway, he is athletic, not big.
Personally I say don't spend the money. It is so much fun educating yourself on how to train and the programming your own regime and you can do that with his videos and other sources. These programs are for lazy that don't want to put in the effort. Though even there, Jeff's program is also about teaching, rather than just "here is the program, do it and you will be big".
2. Just focus on fundamental movements for now as you are a beginner; you can adapt to any stimuli, do whatever you can with good form. Bench Press, Military Press, Deadlift and Squat if with weights. Pushups, Pullups, Handstand Pushups, Bodyweight Squat progressions (towards one-legged squats), and Lying Superman Back Extensions.
Good points of reference:
Weights: Alan Thrall, Athlean X
Bodyweight: Fitness FAQs (also a physio), Bodyweight Warrior
Just work your entire body and watch your form.
