You know what everyone could use more of? Effective bodyweight workout ideas. If youâ€™ve been passing your time in isolation during the COVID-19 pandemic working out by day and watching Netflix by night, youâ€™ve no doubt seen Chris Hemsworthâ€™s imposing physique deliver a major ass-kicking as a black-market mercenary in the action-thrillerÂ Extraction.Â Let both words collide and try this killer bodyweight workout from the actorâ€™sÂ fitness and wellness app, Centr.
Daniel Craigâ€™s â€˜No Time to Dieâ€™ Strength and Conditioning Workout
The app just launched a brand-new series called Unleashed. The six-week program requires no equipment (win) and is accessible for all fitness levels, with options to select beginner, intermediate, or advanced baseline intensities. The Unleashed program also brings some new features to Centr. Each week comprises five workouts, one stretching-focused session, and a bonus challengeâ€”all geared toward weight loss, boosting muscle tone, and furthering cardiovascular fitness. Every two weeks, the structure of the workouts will change to keep your muscles constantly guessing (read: no plateaus).
In every workout youâ€™ll get a tutorial for some of the more advanced exercises, then the routine will be guided in full by instructors Luke Zocchi (Hemsworthâ€™s personal trainer) and Ashley Joi, as well as chef Dan Churchill. While this program utilizes high-intensity interval training (HIIT), it also encompassesÂ high-intensity low-impact training (HILIT) to save your joints. The trainers also identify modifications to some of the exercises throughout the workout, so listen carefully.
