The Only Four Exercises You Ever Need to Do

This week something a little quick and a little practical.

I get so sick and tired of hearing excuses. And trust me, after almost 20 years as a fitness coach I have heard EVERY SINGLE EXCUSE you could ever think of and then some.

I am going to tell you the truth though.

There are no excuses with any merit. There is always something you can do to positively impact the physical health of your body. Always.

I am not talking about having the flu or getting a major operation and being unable to workout for a short period of time. That stuff happens. A couple of days here or there are a week or two after something major happens is just fine. That is not what I am talking about.

It’s the bullshit people make up to justify why they haven’t done any physical activity in years or even decades. Yes, there are those among us who haven’t done any physical activity besides moving around the house and going to work in DECADES.

Each to their own I suppose.

Today I am giving you a list of 4 exercises that you can do anywhere, that require NO expensive equipment, that can be learned quickly and for free, that have easy progressions from beginner to Olympic athlete, and that I believe every single human should be able to do.



If you do these four exercises everyday for the rest of your life you will maintain an excellent level of physical health. Period.

Yes, it really is that simple. Easy? In our modern day and age, no. Again it all comes down to how much you care about yourself, how much you care about your family and friends, and how much you care about your life.Because if you aren’t taking care of your physical health you are an asshole.

Here are four exercises that everyone should be doing every single day and if you can force yourself to do that you will be fit, healthy, and strong for the rest of your life.



The Turkish Getup (TGU)

Why it is called the Turkish Getup I have no idea! When I am inevitably asked what I think the ONE exercise is that everyone should do, this is it. Everyone should do a few of these every single day.

It requires strength, balance, stabilization, coordination, and cardiovascular health. It moves every single joint in the body through a full range of motion. It forces you to get down on the floor and then get up to standing. It takes up almost no space (I used to do them daily in a narrow hallway).

You don’t need any equipment. While this is often performed with a kettlebell you can hold any weight in your hand. When you are first getting started you might just hold a tennis ball to make sure you are focusing on keeping your grip activated. Then you can progress into a rock, or a weight, or a puppy… anything that is going to challenge you to balance something overhead and keep that arm vertical.

This is by far the best exercise ever. And everyone should do them.

The Pullup

I promise, 90% of people reading this article not only cannot do a single pullup, but you most likely couldn’t even grab a bar, or tree branch, or whatever, hold on and just hand there with just your bodyweight for 30 seconds.

You see, life isn’t like the movies. When the hero grabs someone falling off a cliff with one hand and the falling person has just one hand hanging on as well and then they work together to pull the person back up onto firm ground…this is a much as fantasy as your fav celebrity crush walking naked into where you are sitting right now and wanting to get frisky.

It. Just. Isn’t. Going. To. Happen.

Yet we should all be able to do a single pullup. I’m being nice. We should be able to do more than one pullup. It is a spectacular exercise requiring an enormous amount of upper body strength. Not just any upper body strength but focused on those big beautiful back muscles. You probably don’t know them you over texting fool because all that time spent on your smart phone has so fucked your posture that none of your back muscles are actually doing what they are supposed to be doing anymore.

Start with hangs, then some negatives, then work towards pullups. It might take a year or more to get there but I promise that by the time you accomplish this movement your strength will be through the roof!

The Pushup

So simple. Everyone knows what they are. Yet people suck at them and have a litany of reasons why they can’t do them. Shoulder pain, sore wrists, bad back….yada yada yada.

If you can’t do a pushup you nee to address any of the reasons why and once that is sorted out develop some basic fucking human strength and do some pushups.

Recent studies have found a correlation between how many pushps you can do and your risk of cardiovascular disease. No, doing more pushups won’t save your heart but it does appear that how many pushups you can do is a good general indication of your overall fitness level.

And none of those stupid ‘on your knees’ pushups either! That isn’t a pushup. That’s an assisted pushup and Coach Taylor doesn’t allow them. Ever.

Sprints

WHAT? But Coach Taylor, YOU HATE RUNNING!

First, yes, I personally don’t like running. I am NOT anti-running. As I ramble on all the time, however, you don’t run to train, you train to run. See the difference? Running long distance regularly is not good for the body, which can be seen pretty easily when you ask any runners to provide you a list of their injuries and aches.

I am talking about short and intense sprints. UNDER 100m. Sometimes just a simple 10m sprint is perfect. Sprinting is different than jogging, oh, it is VERY different. It is an al l out max effort demanding coordinated muscular and cardiovascular power.

Try this: mark a 50m length somewhere you can sprint. Then do it. Sprint as fast as you fucking can like a lion is chasing your ass with the intent to eat you fast from one marker to the other. Rest 10 seconds then turn around and repeat. Do this 20 times.

Let me know how that feels.

Sprinting will develop your cardiovascular system FAR more than endurance activity and it will also build strength, power, and endurance. I cannot tell you the number of distance runners I have added sprint work to, dropped their mileage in half, and watched them slaughter their running records.


This list might not be what you wanted to hear. It isn’t flashy or glamorous. It doesn’t require supplements or fancy equipment I could sell you.

But I can promise you this: do these four exercises every single day for the next four months and I GUARANTEE you will be stronger, fitter, and feeling better. You will be more resilient mentally and physically and you will have a sense of accomplishment that you probably have never experienced before in your storied exercise history.

The truth is that what your body needs isn’t what the fitness industry is selling. Because frankly, there isn’t much to sell and no one wants to buy things that while seemingly simple are also far too challenging. We live in a world of excuses and laziness. We live in a world of chasing shiny new toys every year and forgetting last years exciting new toy. Like somehow we will achieve all of our dreams and goals by simply acquiring that next best thing.

The path to better health and fitness isn’t shiny and new.

It is tried, tested, and true. It is simplicity. It is respecting the very structure and design of that gorgeous mass of flesh and bones you call you and making it move the way it was built to work.

It isn’t hard.

But it isn’t easy.

How To Cut Through the Crap

One of the most common questions I receive is, ‘how do I know what I should be doing?’

There are thousands of fitness ‘experts’ out there, thousands of programs, fitness products, opinions, and methodologies. All have fervent supporters and ‘success stories’ filling Instagram and infomercials with the promise that you can achieve the same results.

How can you possibly differentiate between the myriad of options and opinions? How can you tell what is legitimately based on real science and what is no better than Gwyneth Paltrows vagina rocks? (Yes, she wants you to put jade eggs in your vagina to ‘clear your chi pathways and solve every other health concern you have…).

The good news is that you are reading this. And I think over the years I have established myself as someone you can trust to cut through the bullshit and deliver information based on, you know, science and stuff.

Sorry, I have no vagina rocks to sell…

For me the answer to this question is relatively simple. I do recognize that almost two decades in this industry, thousands of clients trained, a master degree in human movement, and more certifications and courses than I can remember taking does give me a bit of an advantage when it comes to sorting out the good from the bad from the ugly.

How do I do it? How do I quickly look at a program or idea and judge so quickly it efficacy and legitimacy?

History and experience.

And I think that EVERYONE can do the exact same thing if we just put a little bit of logical thinking into it.

You have been bamboozled to believe newer is better and the advancement of science has given us lordship over the needs of the human body beyond what Mother Nature could ever possibly understand. Obviously the latest tech gadgetry will allow us to surpass our genetics. The latest supplement will lead to performance increases no human in the history of time could have ever dreamed possible!

It’s smoke and mirrors.

All you have to do is put a little bit of thought into it.

How was, how IS, your body supposed to move? What was it designed to do? How has it been crafted to interact together? This is not as complicated as it seems and I think we all have the innate ability to understand this.

man athlete running by the sea at sunset outdoors

Just. Think. About. It.

We lift things up. We carry things. We pull things. We get up off the ground. We throw things. We move from one place to the other. That’s it. That is everything we do.

We lift things. At one time it was logs, dead animals, plants, logs, stones, and whatever else we needed for survival. Not its our kids, groceries, coolers of beer, and that new Ikea couch that you have yet to assemble. We bend over, squat down, and step into lunges to lift things up.

We carry things. Once we have picked something up we most likely need to move it somewhere. Why else would we pick it up? Well, unless it’s a puppy. Then you picked it up just to hold it because, puppies! Carrying things is something your body excels at and it structurally designed to do. On your head, shoulder, back, hip, or in your hands or arms, your really, really efficient at carrying things around!

We pull things. Now you’re visualizing ancient humans dragging a deer carcass, which probably was something we did, but not so much in modern times. You still pull things. Like dragging that new Ikea couch to a different part of the room or your lazy cold kids up the hill in the snow before they slide back down to have you do it again. Or, you pull YOURSELF. Climbing a tree or getting up and over a fence…lol…I know, most people can’t do that. It’s actually a huge problem. You SHOULD be able to do that. Hence the purpose of this article…

We get up off the ground. That’s right. We stand up. From the ground, from bed, from a chair, from that fancy new Ikea couch. We get up. It is absolutely amazing to me and truly, horrifically, scary to me, how many people struggle to simply stand up. We have a couch in our studio that people complain constantly is too low and they can get up from it. Holy crap people. This is a huge problem. Not being able to get up off the ground should send tingles of fear throughout your body! Not being able to get up off a couch? You should really do something about that.

We throw things. There you go again with your picturing ancient humans. Yes we threw spears at animals, I get it. We don’t today. Today we play sports or toss our keys over to someone. It is actually a little harder for me to think of examples of this action and this is a problem because the transverse plane action of throwing requires full body coordination and stabilization that is vital to your health (twisting and moving your arms powerfully is super important and no one does it!).

We move from one place to another. Walking, jogging, running, sprinting, climbing, swimming, and jumping are all basic human movements. It is how we get from here to there and from there to over there and from over there back to here. We MOVE. We have gait patterns and a host of movements that we are literally built to be able to do. Like, literally, the very structure of our bones, the placement of muscles and tendons and ligaments, are all there to allow us to get around.

And this is the secret to how I cut through so much of the bullshit.

Is your training program designed to enhance and strengthen the way we are supposed to move and to make you better at accomplishing the things we do?

Sitting on a machine is not going to do it. Isolating your biceps for a huge pump is not going to do it. Bouncing around on those fucking stupid shoes with springs on the bottom is in no way related to how your body was built to work. The leg press machine is going to fuck your back to shit because the movement and position of your body doesn’t exist anywhere except on that machine and your physiology was not designed to work like that. The lat pulldown machines is a ridiculous way to train back muscles that were actually designed to pull you up not pull something down to you. Treadmills make no sense as we were not designed to run on the spot. Ellipticals? Wtf.

I could literally sit here all day and trash 99% of the fitness industry bullshit. But I have better things to do.

What I am attempting to get you to understand is that when you look at your exercise program or a piece of equipment, can you plausibly see how it could relate to how you actually were designed to move?

Does it use the whole body as a coordinated unit? Does it relate to one of the actions I described above? Does it involve all or at least most of the major muscles? Will it force you to move in a way that just might be useful to you?

Like walking through Ikea, lifting that box, carrying it somewhere, opening it up, having the dexterity to assemble it, dragging it to the best position, and then being able to get on and off of it?

Do NOT Eat Every Three Hours!

Does Eating More Frequently Speed Up Your Metabolism?


Eat small meals frequently throughout the day to make sure you keep your metabolism moving as quickly as possible.

Make sure you NEVER go longer than three hours without eating.

Eat negative calorie foods to help lose weight.


You have heard this advice before. Every weight loss show, every fitness magazine, and every article on GOOP espouses it with religious fervour. Deny this scripture at your own peril!

If you want to lose body fat you HAVE, you HAVE to eat regularly or your metabolism will slow to a crawl and you will resemble the Pillsbury doughboy by the end of the week and your scale will explode in protest! Every trainer and every nutritionist out there will spend a good percentage of their time making sure you understand this.

I used to believe this too and for more than a decade I lived by it and coached the same message.

The idea is this: food has a thermic effect, which essentially means that when you eat food your body goes to work to digest it and this added activity increases your metabolic rate.

This is true.

Perusing the literature on the topic is challenging because it is extremely difficult to measure and so has very rarely been studied properly. Most of the data we have is from rodent studies and unfortunately if you are reading this you are not a rat.

A general overview of what is out there appears to lend some support to the idea that the thermic effect of food accounts for between 2% and 20% of your daily calorie consumption. That is a huge fucking range. On a 2000 calorie a day diet that is between 40 and 400 calories.


[Side note: this is all also assuming that calories are easily measured and how our body uses calories is easily measured, which is one million percentage NOT the case…]


Based on this idea eating during the day mean you expend these calories to digest. So the theory goes that if we eat frequently our metabolism will keep humming along digesting all the food and we will burn more calories. Yay! No doughboy in the mirror and the scale will be happy.


[Side note: you don’t weight yourself thought right? Because you have read all of my stuff and know the scale is fucking stupid.]


There is a missing link that is seemingly ignored in this whole equation. In order to get the digestion process humming along you need to eat food. Food has calorie in it. Eating enough to really crank up the metabolic process takes more food. This means more calories.

You cannot eat enough food to decrease your overall calories because the act of eating the food to increase your metabolism means you are ingesting more calories. It is a vicious circle!

What is one to do?

Eat negative calories!!!

That’s right, there are idiots our there who think there are negative calories. The idea here is that some foods are so low in calories that you burn more energy digesting them than they actually contain. This has led people to believe that consuming these foods will help with fat loss and weight management.

The easiest way to answer this is simple: it’s not fucking true. Negative calories don’t exist.

No, eating a lot of celery wont drop off the pounds and rev your metabolism to the roof.

Like, how much celery could you even eat? Even if negative calories was a thing and you just ate celery, there is no way you could eat enough to meet your daily requirements not to mention the fact that you wouldn’t be getting enough carbohydrate, protein, and vitamins and minerals to stay alive.

This is the most preposterous idea in the world of nutrition.



When you are constantly focused on eating all the time in order to ‘speed up your metabolism’ you just end up eating more. Then all of the dieters who want to keep their calories low choose food options that leave them feeling hungry and unsatisfied and the resulting evening food binge becomes the norm. But hey, that yogurt you ate for your 3rd snack after your second meal was ONLY 45 calories – yay you!

And the real truth of the matter is that it is very difficult to affect the number of calories you burn in a day. A plethora of research over the last few years has demonstrated that our metabolisms are essentially genetically fixed. Couch potatoes in rural America burn about the same number of calories as hunter-gatherers in Africa who are active all day. Our metabolisms seem to be pretty fixed.


[Side note: the idea that adding a pound of muscle means you burn 50 calories a day more is NOT true…busting myths left right and centre here….]


What about the idea that going too long between meals slows your metabolism down? This idea to I believed for much of my career. The quick answer is simply that it won’t.

As I just described above, your metabolism is barely affected by food consumption. In many studies on fasting in humans it has been verified time and again that our metabolisms DO NOT slow down when we have long durations during meals.

I don’t know how to describe this any better. The facts are simply that your metabolism does not slow down, in fact it doesn’t change, when you have 8-48 hour gaps between meals. That’s right, 48 hour gaps between meals. Two days. Holy shit.

Anecdotally, with the hundreds of people I have coached through intermittent fasting protocols, I can tell you that adding fasting periods daily results in the following: increased energy, increased mental alertness, decreased body fat, less fixation on food, more enjoyable meals.

Terrible, right?

What about hormone crashes? You have to eat more frequently to keep your blood sugar up! If you are feeling groggy and slow the best thing to do is eat something! Get some sugars into you for energy.

Actually, no. This also is not true. In fact, there is a growing body of research that fating windows actually improve hormone activity and response in the body. Research with diabetics and fasting is actually showing IMPROVED blood glucose (blood sugar) balance.

What has been found to increase energy levels during those mid-morning and mod-afternoon slumps?

#sorrynotsorry

Exercise. Movement. Going for a walk. Doing a workout. Walking some stairs. Physical activity increases energy. Weird eh? Burning energy increase energy? It appears so…

Something else to think about. Have you ever raised kids? Or raised a puppy? Infants and puppies need to gain weight and there is only one strategy to do this. Feed them frequently. Every 2 or 3 hours.

Uh-huh. That’s right. When we want to make them gain weight we feed them as frequently as possible. And their metabolisms are through the fucking roof already as they are growing like crazy!

Yet for some reason as adults, with slower metabolisms, we feel that the same feeding schedule is necessary to maintain or lower our weight. Slightly backwards thinking.

The idea that eating small frequent meals is good for us by keeping our metabolisms moving faster and balancing our hormone levels is completely false. We need to move people towards a style of eating and living that our bodies were designed to follow. Today, this is referred to as intermittent fasting.

I am growing to dislike that term more and more as it is become a catch all fitness phrase attached to weight loss. It isn’t. Our bodies were designed to eat food sporadically and to have long gaps without having to focus on digestion. I have written about this a lot.

You should NOT be eating 3 meals a day plus 3 snacks between meals. It is NOT making you healthier, in fact, it is doing the opposite.

The Secret Exercise to Drop Fat and Boost Performance

Something I have seen time and time again throughout my training career is the idea that a specific exercise, training tool, shoe, article of clothing, or type of food is in any way related to fitness success or sports performance.

Recently, one of the awesome members at my brick and mortar fitness studio returned from a game of golf with family. She doesn’t golf often so it was a surprise to her fellow players when her drives kicked them all in the face. Instantly the questions began,

“What have you been doing to increase your distance so much?,” “how are you getting your hips to move so well?”

The million dollar questions!

Attentively they all eagerly awaited the secret in hope of replicating the same thing for themselves. My client did her best and after years of training with us suggested some exercises that we do on a regular basis that seemingly relate directly to the improved skills. Her intentions and heart were in the right place even if the advice was somewhat misguided.

Why?

I don’t believe even she knows the real reasons for her newly acquired skills of envy and in reality that is why she hired us!

This situation plays out time and time again on golf courses, soccer fields, at dinner parties, and any other gatherings every single day. Maybe it isn’t about golf.


‘You’ve lost weight, what’s your secret?’

‘You are so strong, what’s your secret?’

‘You look amazing, what’s your secret?’

‘You are so much faster now, what’s your secret?’


That is what everyone wants, right? That’s secret. What new super food did you begin eating to shed fat? What exercise did you do that made you improve so much? What equipment did you buy? What shoes did you buy? Is it that new moisture wicking fabric?

WHAT IS IT?

Usually at this point the person coughs up a couple of things and the interrogator rushes out with credit card in hand eager to acquire their new secret weapon, or they instantly start doing whatever new exercise they have been promised will lead them to ultimate glory.

Within a week it’s over.

The new product is either still in the package or was tried twice before beginning its new life as a collector of dust. While the exercise seems promising, the week just got way too busy and they didn’t get a chance to try it. And really, it is kind of complicated and they already have a program that they saw online once from a insta coach and they are already pretty close to giving that a try and don’t want to mess that up with this exercise that doesn’t seem to really fit into that program…

And just like that it is over.

There is the odd exception, however, where someone really does take it to heart and uses their new product, consumes the new super food, and really does the exercises everyday. This person is in for a real moment of heartache when they realize that after 4 weeks of adhering to the secrets nothing has changed. I mean, they have this new pain in their lower back, their grocery budget is higher, and their new fancy product looks well used, but they don’t feel any different, or look any different, and they certainly aren’t faster or driving a ball further.

What the fuck.

They tried so hard for like, a whole few days and spent all this money.

Time and time again, over and over and over the story goes. Honestly, the number of times I have seen this happen would be impossible to count but if I was paid for each one I would be writing this article on a beach in Zanzibar.

Why is this such an epic fail? Why does what works for my client NOT work for you?

The real secret is…

There is no secret. There is not single thing. There is no fast answer. Never. Ever. Ever. Never.

That athlete hawking those fancy shoes? Their success didn’t come from their footwear. Their success came from years, decades, of diligent training, epic failures, world class coaching, and competitive experience.

That super food didn’t do anything. My client has put in countless hours being diligent about eating a real food diet, avoiding excess, minimizing poor food choices, and listening to my advice. Yes, they add in the super food because it IS healthy. But it is actually the generally most of the time healthy food choices over many months that is creating the result you are lusting after with envious eyes.

That exercise is doing nothing. I mean, it is doing something, in conjunction with all the other exercises my client does. While she adheres to a comprehensive program designed by professionals with the goal of increasing overall mobility, strength, and movement. Is that exercise pertinent to the new found skill you are seeing? Yes, yes it is. But it is a part of an overall program. In and of itself it is completely useless for fat loss or making you stronger or move better or perform better.

This is the cold, hard, truth, because that is the only thing I know how to deliver.

There is no secret.

There is no super food, no amazing product or article of clothing, or any one single exercise that is going to smash your performance through the roof or drop your body fat percentage.

Everything always, ALWAYS, comes down to one thing and one thing only.

So, maybe there actually is a secret?

Then this is it: Regular, consistent exercise and healthy nutritional habits over long periods of time.

The cold, hard, secret.
