Ratings and Reviews
I have been using this app, specifically the EFX program, for approximately 4 years now. I am a big fan of body weight exercises as I believe they train the nervous system in coordinated activation of muscle groups. The EFX program seems to balance activation of both the anterior chain as well as the posterior chain of muscle groups with some creative exercises, especially for the posterior chain group. The body weight exercises are done in sets and supersets that combine cardiovascular as well as strength training for a well rounded training routine. Mark Lauren tries to teach proper movement mechanics with brief instructions. Keeping proper posture is absolutely key to obtaining maximum benefit from body weight exercises. A working understanding of Alexander Technique can be helpful in understanding some of the brief body mechanics instructions that he gives. Implementation of proper posture can improve activation of abdominal musculature during plank and squat movements; however, this is not obvious from the program as it is. This is one area that could stand some improvement/tweaking. I would love to see more progressions of the exercises in the future. Overall, I love this program and highly recommend it.
Like having a Personal Trainer in your pocket.
This is simply the best exercise app on the market in my opinion. I've downloaded and purchased so many. But nothing compares honestly. It's honestly idiot proof, covering any fitness level in any type of situation; whether you want to follow a program, only have a set amount of time, want to work on specific body parts or areas or just want to progress to the "big boy/girl" exercises like pull ups, push ups, squats/one legged pistols, planks/flags, Etc.
One suggestion: do yourself the favor and buy the "you are your own gym" book as well. It's absolutely not necessary, but it definetely helps make the experience/journey much richer and more motivating. I'm a bit of a fitness nerd and have hundred of books on fitness. But it's definetely my favorite - both or Bodyweight trading and overall fitness. Together, you'll honestly have all you need not only to get in amazing shape, but know why it's all working and even deviate and have your own approach as well.
But speaking on just that app, its definetely the best $5 you could ever spend. Like...life changing $5!!! Lol
Great Level of Exercise Difficulty
I read Mark's book over a year ago and didn't do anything with the information I always thought you had to use weights. I had been using the "Mens Health Big Book of Exercise" for quite awhile but wasn't seeing the results like I wanted. I reread his book and meal plans, downloaded the app and started the basic exercise plan, 3 weeks later dropped 9lbs. I am in my 40's and never realized the difficultly of body weight exercises and the range motion improvement. The cool down stretches, are really helping with a shoulder I dislocated as a teenager. Thanks Mark!
Now I just finished week 8 of BASIC, the Stapper is the last exercise at the end of the week and a great 20 minute workout. Just wanted say the very noticeable improvement in strength, balance, range of motion in my whole body. I don't get stiff anymore, sleep much better, all around feeling great. Using his smoothie recipes and juices from his new cookbook, for an after workout meal. Really what I am finding is this is about consistency, eating the right things and being patient, I am now down 14 lbs from start. BTW love this app it does make things so easy!
