Earlier this week, I posted a look back at some workout footage from around 15 years ago. My reason for sharing the old images was twofold. First off, I was hoping to provide some ideas for garage / home workouts. The entire video was shot in my old house in the garage, basement and backyard. Perhaps more importantly, I wanted to reiterate a message that I have preached for years. To put it bluntly, the old school is still a great school. What worked many years ago continues to work today. You don't have to constantly reinvent the wheel.
Old School training demo
Below you'll see variations of push-ups, pull-ups, squats, jumps, rollouts, and more. In other words, you will see the same exercises that I continue to demonstrate on a regular basis. Other than living in a different house, very little has changed.
Substance on Flash
Continuing on the old school theme, here's a brief discussion of the topic from a few years ago. The message is particularly relevant today with gyms around the world closed due to COVID-19. If that's the case for you, don't panic. You can still do pretty well at home by working out hard with a few basic exercises.
For example, go find someone who has regularly (for years) done push-ups, push-ups, squats, lunges, hill sprints, etc. and you will find someone who is fitter than most. It's really not that complicated. Like I said before, work hard with almost anything and you will be successful. Details matter less than the intention behind the work
Learn from the past
Old school drills may lack flash, but they're loaded with substance. And that's just another reason why it's helpful to study athletes from the past. They were not competing for attention on social media. Their goal was simple. Get the job done as efficiently as possible. Much can be learned from their example.
As a professional boxing trainer, my job description is also pretty straightforward. I prepare the fighters to win. I am not paid to be original or different. Getting the job done is all that matters. It is a results-driven business. We don't get extra credit for styling and flash. No one cares about the methods used. All you remember are the results you produce. And while it might sound obvious, I think it's an important statement to make (especially in today's world).
I don't make a living on social media and I don't get royalty checks because I use drills from the past. Therefore, when I talk about old school, I don't because it benefits me in some way. I'm just sharing what we use and what actually works.
Also, I am not saying that we should never seek to improve the past. We should always strive to improve ourselves in everything we do. That said, recognize that there will always be more opportunities. to improve an individual that there will be opportunities to improve the methods used by that person.
