Joe Rogan Recommends This Work Out Routine
So, what work out routine does Joe rocommend?
3 Simple Exercises
Joe has talked before about keeping your work out simple; he said that a lot of people work out for long periods of time and it’s unnecessary. 40 minutes is plenty of time to get a good, time efficient work out in.
When speaking to Tom Papa on his podcast (episode #1281), Joe suggested just 3 simple exercises for your work out.
A chin up is a strength exercise that works out the Latissimus Dorsi and Biceps.
To do a chin up grip a bar (the bar must be tall enough for you to hang from) with your palms facing towards you. Hang from the bar and pull yourself up. Make sure to tense your abdominal muscles as this will help to strengthen your core. Stop and hold for a few seconds at the top and then drop yourself back down.
A chin up can be difficult to achieve so keep trying if you can’t do it at first.
A push up is a calisthenic exercise that exercises the pectoral muscles, triceps, anterior and the mid section.
To perform a push up you get in the prone position and raise & lower your body using your arms. No equipment is needed. If you have your hands out wider then your shoulder, the push up becomes a press up and will also work the pectoral muscles (chest muscles or pecks).
A body-weight squat is an exercise that works the lower body.
Again, this exercise can be performed without any equipment. To do a squat stand with your legs about shoulder-width apart. Make sure you keep your head straight and looking forward. Keep your feet flat on the floor and lower your body so that your hips drop to your knees. Then push yourself back up and feel the burn.
Keep It Simple
You can join the gym and enjoy the advanced facilities they have if you want, there’s nothing wrong with that. However, Joe Rogan is also right when he says you can get a good work out by keeping it simple.
In fact, for his whole work out all you need in terms of equipment is a bar for the chin ups.
