People joke about how he never has a shirt on, but I’ve got to admit, if I had his body, I wouldn’t ever put my shirt on either. Matthew McConaughey is the dude who probably inspires most men to work out.
Matthew McConaughey is known for working out outside and using outdoor exercise equipment. He does body weight calisthenics, works out with rocks, and uses kettleballs. In other words – he’s using better workout tools that he got for free then the tools you are working out with that was very expensive. He makes home gym exercise equipment obsolete. Have you ever tried to military press a rock? Ever do deadlifts with a rock? Rows with a rock? It’s much, much harder than with a nice, easy to grip, perfectly balanced barbell. Guess what, pull ups are harder than curls. And you see how thick that pole is that he’s doing pull ups on? That’s harder on the grip also. Just by using natural tools like rocks and branches he’s getting a lot better of a workout.
Ever try to do pull ups on a tree branch? You have to switch direction each set because one side of the branch is always higher than the other. The kind of outdoor, use-what-you’ve-got workouts that Matthew does require a little creativity and are very, very hard.
Matthew McConaughey definitely does the work. Every celebrity workout article has a picture of Matt doing calisthenics outside, or going for a run. This dude is so fit that sometimes there are two pictures of him working out. It’s like all he does is work out. There’s something to be said for just putting in the time, doing the work. This is a really, really active guy.
Whenever someone mentions celebrities and kettleballs, Matthew McConaughey’s name always comes up. Kettlebells fit his workout style – they’re used full body exercises, they’re basic, old-school, and hard as hell to work out with.
And that’s a pretty good way to re-assess your workout program –
1.) Are you focused on basics? Pull ups, dips, presses, rows, squats, deadlifts?
2.) Are you using old school, full body exercises?
3.) Is your workout really that hard? Do you think you could keep up with McConaughey on a run that included pull ups any time you saw something that looked like a pull up bar, dips on every set of benches, and push ups all in between?
These workouts are “mostly body weight”. Its mostly body weight because you will use one dumbbell for “kettleball” swings. Since swings are the best fat loss movement ever, you’ll be stoked. The rest of the movements in this workout are all body weight only, unless you are super advanced according to
