See What 60 Days of Pushups, Pullups and Planks Did to This Guy's BodyAuthor: Philip Ellis
YouTuber Brendan Jones, one half of the Goal Guys vlogging brother duo, underwent a body transformation last year which saw him lean down and get ripped in 100 days. Since then he has been able to maintain the results he achieved through diet and working out, and is now seeking "incremental" ways to continue to improve on his personal fitness. In a new video, he documents his experience of doing additional pushups, pullups and ab work every day for a period of 60 days to see what effect it has on his strength and body composition.
On top of his regular training, Jones begins doing an extra 15-minute workout each morning comprising 3 sets of 15 pushups, 3 sets of 45-second core-activating planks, and 3 sets of 8 pullups. He also does left-handed band pulls to build some strength in that arm which will help add balance to his upper-body exercises.
"The one thing that's been kind of tough is motivating myself to get to the second workout in the evening, which is always the hardest workout of the day," he says. However, as he remains consistent in his training, Jones soon begins to see results, most notably in his increased upper-body strength: five weeks into the challenge, his ability to do ring muscleups has improved.
"I am just over halfway through and I already feel so much stronger, it is shocking," he says. "When I started I was on 15 pushups, now I have moved that up to 4 sets of 20 and can do that comfortably. Pullups have progressed from 2 sets of 8 to 4 sets of 10... I've also realized I can use this high frequency training to focus on things like improving with my rings pullups, working on explosive pullups."
At the end of the 60 days, Jones has lost 4.5 pounds and his body fat has dropped from 18.2 to 14.8 percent. "I feel like I'm really lean... This really paid off," he says. "I'm genuinely surprised by how fast my body adapted and improved with this training."
