Recently, street workouts with their own body weight have gained great popularity. These include pull-ups on the crossbar, push-ups from a horizontal surface and on the uneven bars. To perform these exercises, you don’t need to visit expensive gyms and do not even need special ammunition, so this method of healing and improving your shape is available to everyone. In order to start classes, you just need to find a sports ground, which is in many yards, near schools and kindergartens.
A lot of people are involved in the popularization of the so-called street sports, but perhaps the most famous of them is Hannibal. Despite the fact that this personality is quite well-known, few people know his biography, and there is very little information about this. It is only known that he was born in 1979 in Egypt, now lives in the United States, is a model, actor, and also starred in commercials and films. Hannibal weighs 80 kilograms, which is quite good for his not very high growth (174 centimeters).
Hannibal’s training system developed when he was only 15 years old, so the length of service is already quite impressive. True, according to the athlete himself, in his life there was a period when classes had to be abandoned, and only on the instructions of his sister did he return to them.
Hannibal is trained every day without exception. And he does it in the morning and in the evening, and if there is such an opportunity, then also at lunch. An important indicator is the fact that at least once a week he tries to conduct an open training. This is done in order to involve more and more new people in the process.
The set of exercises, which is part of Hannibal’s training, for a beginner turnstile will seem incredible. Indeed, it will take more than one year to achieve such power indicators, but if someone has succeeded, you should probably think that everything is possible, the main thing is to work hard.
The Hannibal training program consists of 11 approaches that are performed almost without interruption in the circular system and include:
- push-ups from a horizontal surface - 275 times (30 repetitions in the first approach, in each subsequent amount decreases by 1);
- pull-ups on the crossbar - 70 times (10 repetitions in the first approach, in each subsequent number decreases by 1, the last 6 approaches are performed by 5 repetitions);
- push-ups on the bars - 165 times (20 repetitions in the first approach, in each subsequent number decreases by 1);
- pull-ups on the crossbar with a reverse grip - 70 times (10 repetitions in the first approach, in each subsequent number decreases by 1, the last 6 approaches are performed by 5 repetitions)
The figures above alone are worthy of respect, but there is no need to think that this is where it ends. In fact, this is only the minimum amount of work that is aimed at increasing endurance and allows an athlete to perform all complex elements. In addition to the power block, Hannibal’s workouts also include running, exercising on a stationary bike and in the pool. Cardio training is vital for the heart to withstand such stress.
If there is a desire, a person can reach any heights, and Hannibal’s training proves this once again. He showed by his own example that patience and devotion to his work can work miracles. You just have to start, and not justify your inaction!
