Mike Tyson full body workout proves bodyweight exercises are all you need
Mike Tyson got in shape using bodyweight exercises and you can get strong the same wayMike Tyson must be using more modern and sophisticated methods in 2020 but back in the day he mainly used calisthenics – aka bodyweight exercises – to get his trademark 'broad as a semi-truck' body. Tyson was and still is muscular, agile and seriously fast. And maybe you can be too, if you follow The Mike Tyson Bodyweight Workout.
Si Si is a training manager for cosmetics firm Aesthetics and has battled Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and Endometriosis in the past, so was offering specialist advice on all things skin care from a first hand point of view when she first started out. When she became pregnant with CJ, the direction of her Instagram page changed slightly, with more of a focus on being a first time mum, but there’s still the same lifestyle and beauty tips to be had.
The 29-year-old has documented her heartbreak at losing a baby at 11 weeks and is always on hand to offer advice on the health issues she’s faced, as well as to make us green with envy at her glamorous life and gorgeous wee family. She’s also never shy in telling the true story about what really happens to us during our postpartum journey, with nappies, bloating and greasy hair to boot! A real breath of fresh air.

As her Insta handle would suggest, she started out as a beauty, lifestyle and skin specialist but has since moved on to all things related to being a new mum with epic style. Ruby is particularly passionate about breastfeeding her wee angel and is on hand to offer advice and tips to anyone in the same boat. She's also got us in awe at all of her on point pregnancy and post pregnancy looks, and we want all of her coats, pastel coloured tracksuits and also her trainers, thanks.

Mike Tyson got in shape using bodyweight exercises and you can get strong the same wayNow, if you want to know how to build muscle over 50, you'll just have to ask Mister Tyson how he got in such incredible shape at the age of 53 for this fight. Given his age, Iron Mike probably isn't using this full body workout. It's what he used to get strong in his prime, and as bodyweight workouts go it is, of course, plenty brutal.
