Iron Man Magazine: At Home Workouts

Screen Shot 2020-03-17 at 5.36.21 PM

I am happy to contribute some of my best home workouts to Iron Man Magazine in this latest feature:

Intensity does not reside in a location, but from within. This is something to remember the next time you are unable to make that drive to the gym or if you are traveling. While it may be ideal to have all the fancy gym equipment it’s not the only way to push your limits. It is possible to achieve maximum intensity with very minimal equipment even for the most advanced lifter. All that is needed is a set of resistance bands, your body, and a little creativity. These workouts can be done at home to transform your body or as a supplement to your gym work. Read the full article and workouts HERE.

Transformation Challenge Winners!

I am extremely proud of all my contestants who just completed my annual “Transformer Transformation Challenge 2019” that took place right after Thanksgiving and finished before the New Year.

The Grand Prize winner receiving over $1500 in cash & prizes is Eric Gagnon from MA, USA (IG: @kagedfireman). I was extremely impressed with his 4-week accomplishment and moving essay. He wins $500 cash, training with me in-person or online, S-Force watch, Fitmark Envoy duffle, ISSA scholarship (certified personal trainer), Kaged Muscle stack, Kodiak Cakes package, Train Magazine feature, and more! Eric used my ‘Diamond Cutter’ program for the Challenge.

“As far as my plans for 2020 i see nothing but good things coming! Not only am I in better shape but I also made HUGE progress towards my anxiety when it comes to doing cardio exercises. That alone will improve my overall health which is a necessity for my job as a firefighter. Ive improved my mental health overall too which in turn will benefit my family which is most important to me.”   -Eric

My first Runner-Up is Projwol Pradhan from Nepal (IG: @prajwol_pradhan). This truly competition was truly world-wide. He is motivated and training for his upcoming marriage on March 1st. Congratulations Projwol on your achievement and upcoming marriage. Both Runner-ups will receive (3) month of online training, Kaged Muscle PIP stack, and more. Projwol used my Krib Karnage program for his results.

My second Runner-Up is Steven Johnson from TN, USA (IG: the_stevie_jay). He also used my Diamond Cutter program for the Challenge. Here are some good words from Steven’s essay:

“Overall, the Transformer Transformation Challenge 2019 taught me much about myself, my body, and how certain macro/micronutrients affect me when it comes to how I feel, and how I perform. I will be bringing all the knowledge I gained from this Challenge of do’s and do nots into 2020, and I hope to be able to share this experience, my knowledge with people I know, and people I meet.” -Steven

Featured in Train Mag with Arnold

 

I am super excited to share this with you all since I have been a life-long Arnie fan. I’ve come full circle from being featured in Flex Magazine when I was 15 with Arnold on the cover to now having an article I wrote including a Terminator/Arnold inspired photo published in the highly respected international magazine Train. My article ‘Terminate Your Excuses’ is even mentioned on the cover. I wonder if Arnold will see this?

Special thanks to Train Magazine for the opportunities, Gregg Shipman Photography for the killer photo, and my friend Rob Beckley for helping make that shoot happen. Find Train Magazine now at Barns and Noble and other places magazines are sold. Get the digital version on the Train Magazine app (trainmag.com).

“Family Home Workout Series” is Live!

Screen Shot 2019-07-21 at 3.51.40 PMI’ve had the idea to make a program like this for a long time and not just for your family, but mine as well. Just because I’m a fitness trainer doesn’t mean my family isn’t similar to yours. We have a problem with our kids having too much screen time and keeping them active. I wanted to make a workout series that can be done with family members of all ages and conditions. While I give instruction on video and here in the PDF’s I don’t expect these workouts to go perfectly, but they will help bring your families together and they will be fun. These workouts are a shorter, but focused 15 minutes to help keep children engaged and to eliminate excuses from parents about being short on time. This is not like my previous programs with detailed nutrition and cardio guidance, but I did include some general information to help your family as a whole live healthier. I hope you all enjoy these workouts. I have to give a special thanks to my family (Rosie, Kennedie, Kyler, Kaden, and Stacie) for helping me make this as they all contributed in their own way. We are launching this as a series of 12 workouts. If response is good we can always add more. Please take photos and videos of your family while doing this program and tag me on social media @WittigWorks so my family can follow you. Most importantly enjoy the time with your family and have fun!

Sincerely,

Michael Wittig

Guidelines:

Recommended Equipment: There is no traditional equipment needed for this program. We will occasionally use regular household items like towels, balls, cans, or chairs.

The Schedule: I am launching this with 12 complete workouts. Ideally do three workouts weekly. Then you can always repeat your favorite workouts. I would recommend a Monday, Wednesday, Friday schedule. An alternate schedule ofTuesday, Thursday, Saturday would work just as well.

Cardio:These workouts will include some great cardio, but I highly encourage your family to take walks together especially on non-workout days. Let the kids walk, ride bikes, or scooters. Any amount of time is fine. Also, get outside and play games like soccer, basketball, four square, or just make something up. Kids might resist you at first, but once you start playing they typically start enjoying themselves and want to play more.

Exercise Form: I’ve kept most of these exercises simply and safe. While form is very important sometimes with smaller children it’s just not going to be perfect. I encourage parents to watch the workout videos and read through the PDF before each workout. Work with your kids on form as I do in the videos. Just do your best and have fun. If something just isn’t working modify or move on.

Nutrition Tips: This series will not include a ‘diet’ as it’s not that type of program, but I do want to give your family some general nutrition guidance. Making a few of these small changes can make a big difference in the health of your entire family especially mom and dad.

  • Drink Water: One of the biggest health changes anybody can make is to stop drinking calories and drink more water. This is especially difficult for children. Try to give them less soda or juice, and replace with water. Store bought juice is typically loaded with sugar and not really good for kids.

  • Eat Natural Foods: Do your best to avoid fast foods as well as store bought highly processed foods in boxes and cans. I know from experience that this is not always possible with kids. Just do your best. When they are going to eat something like chicken nuggets or pizza give them a smaller portion on purpose, include fruits and vegetables on the plate, and don’t let them have seconds of the main dish until everything is eaten. This works well with my kids.

  • Don’t Skip Meals: Try to have a balanced breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Ideally snacks between meals should be protein based for adults. Attempt to get kids eating fruit, yogurt, low fat string cheese for snacks over granola bars, cookies, fruit snacks, etc.

  • Plan Ahead: It’s hardto eat healthy if the food isn’t available. Planning starts with grocery shopping. Keep a running list of things before they run out and have designated shopping days. Have an idea of what your family will be eating the next day. Prepare ahead of time so everyone doesn’t resort to eating junk. I personally never leave the house without my meals and shakes packed in a Fitmark ‘meal management’ bag. Check them out at Fitmarkbags.com. Get 15% off with code “Wittig15”.

Supplements:

I am only going to share a handful of products that I think could help the general family. So the supplements highlighted here are not necessary focused on building big muscles, but general health. I have never taken steroids or any illegal performance enhancing drugs and do not recommend that you consider taking them. I exercise for health first and then physique. Supplements can help you reach your goals if you are working out with intensity and eating properly. Let me put it this way, “Extra-ordinary lifestyle requires extra-ordinary nutrition”. I am honored to an official Athlete for Kaged Muscle supplements. When I stand

behind any company it’s because I am personally passionate about it. Read the Supplement guidelines below to see what I am personally taking and recommend.

Here is why I am a Kaged Muscle Athlete:

  • Manufactured in FDA inspected and NSF certified facility.
  • Banned substance free- BSCG certified.
  • 3rd party tested for label accuracy.
  • No artificial flavors, colors, or dyes.

  • Highest quality ingredients in the correct dosages for maximum results.
  • Every ingredient and dosage is on the label.

Recommended Supplements:

  • Whey Protein IsolateWhey protein is great to have immediately following workouts, before an early morning workout, as a meal replacement, or as a snack between meals. It willhelp bring your protein count up while adding no fat or carbs to your diet. This would be the first and most important supplement I would recommend to anybody for all goals.
  • HydrachargeThis is a powder you add to water for a great taste, no artificial colors or flavors, plus added electrolytes and minerals for superior hydration. This is a product that would be great for adults and kids to help increase their water intake.
  • In-KagedThis is optional, but one of my favorites. This would be a great replacement for energy drinks or pop. I would not recommend this for children as it has organic caffeine which is stillmuch better than processed cheap caffeine found in most liquid products. In-Kaged tastes amazing, especially the Watermelon, and it perfect for workouts and outside activities. It will give you that little extra kick of energy whenever you need it.
  • Kasein ProteinThis is a different type of protein than the whey isolate mentioned above. Kasein is a slower digesting protein that is ideal in the evening before bed. I have this listed here because I know a lot of people struggle with evening cravings and we generally resort to unhealthy snacks. Not only does this taste like a treat it can be used for recipes or just mixed with non-fat Greek yogurt to make a healthy pudding. There are lots of options with this product to help your family end the day on the right track.
