Prison workout -Get ripped like a convict ,without being one

By  | 


Hollywood has implanted into our minds the idea that men in prison are super ripped and muscular. Personally, I’ve never been to prison, nor do I know anyone in prison, but whether you like it or not, many people believe that most guys in prison are jacked.

So how do they get so musculer while living in a small cell with no gym equipment ?  They utilize body-weight training .

If you don’t have access to weights, then bodyweight exercises are the next best thing.

And please don’t think bodyweight exercises only encompasses the stereotypical “man in cell” doing push ups. When it comes to bodyweight exercises, there are hundreds of possible exercises for you to do.

This is why you really have no excuse to get fit even if you don’t have access to the gym. If a prisoner in a tiny cell can get ripped, then so can you!!


Push up variatons

while the old fashioned regular push up is still one of the best upper body exercises around, there’s just so much more you can do with it. And the best part about push ups is that you only need a tiny bit of open floor space

Wide grip pushups

Clap pushups

Diamond pushups

Do 1 set of 10 for each of the above push-up variations .Increase as you get stronger.

Tricep dips 

If you want to look like a force to be reckoned with in prison, then you need to have big arms. One of the best ways to build up your arms is with tricep dips. These can be done on the side of your bed.

Start with 3 sets of 10 ,increase when you get stronger.

Pull ups

These might be a bit harder to do in a prison cell since there’s most cells don’t include a pull up bar, so the best thing to do would be to find a ledge or something to grab onto. Pull ups are an excellent exercise for building a wide v-shape back.

Start with 3 sets of 10 ,increase when you get stronger.
