Default Workouts for antisocials.

My new favorite workout is the Gorilla Workout. It's available on the iPad for $1.99 App Store - Gorilla Workout

Why I like it?
  • I hate someone telling me what to do - even if it is by video.
  • I hate someone encouraging me and trying to tell me I'm doing a great job. As Katt Williams says "it's called self esteem cause you're supposed to do it yo-self!"
  • I hate having to keep up/slow down with someone else's pace. Let me breathe in a way that is natural to my fitness level.
  • It's portable: I can do it anywhere, without any exercise equipment. Lifting my heavy body is a workout enough. Although space isn't much of a concern for me, it is small-space friendly.
  • There's no talking in the demo exercises, no fluffy wording. Just basic instructions.

Yes. You get a screen with your workout plan. Something like
4 sets
10 push ups
5 lunges
15 squats

And if you don't know what that exercise is, you can watch the demo video iin silence or read a description.

Every day you do something different.

I also start exercise workouts to lose some weight and to burn my belly fats that's why I join the yoga program that recommend by my friend.

Webjockey, I was looking at this app yesterday before I saw this thread. Are you seeing good results?
