BB3 TV Episode #3

In this week’s action-packed episode, the trainer of trainers, best-selling author of “Strength Training for Fat Loss” and my rock climbing buddy, Nick Tumminello shares his vast knowledge on how to achieve your best body.

Some of the Highlights:

  • Nick takes me through his Push-Up Pyramid workout.  (see below for details)  Just a warning, I did this when we were rock climbing which rendered me useless.  My arms and chest were sore for days.
  • See some clips of me training 2-time Heavyweight Boxing Champion of the World, Shannon “The Cannon” Briggs. “Let’s Go Champ!”
  • Then I interview Nick Tumminello as he dispels some common fitness myths.
  • Can you lose fat from one area of your body?  What about “Spot Enhancement?”
  • What makes a great trainer? The trainer of trainers shares his thoughts

Nick Tumminello’s Push Up Pyramid (of Pain!)

  • Push-up Lock Offs
  • Cross-over Push-ups
  • Close Grip Push-ups
  1. Begin by knocking out 5 reps per side of the lock offs and cross-overs. Then finish with 10 reps of close-grip push-ups.
  2. Rest while your partner in crime goes.
  3. Then knock out 4 reps of the lock offs and cross-overs followed by 8 reps of close-grip.
  4. Next time decrease to 3 reps, 3 reps and 6 close-grip.
  5. Then drop to 2 reps, 2 reps and just 4 close-grip push-ups.
  6. Finish with 1 rep, 1 rep and 2 of the close-grip push-ups.
