Everybody is talking about Freeletics , everybody knows someone who either done it, tried it or knows someone who tried Freeletics in the past. Since more I tried so many times to get through the 15 weeks but I never finished. Her my current Freeletics Status:
As I’ve been pasting that screenshot out of my account I thought, well it isn’t that bad. But it is a more than a year and just 105 workouts. I always started but didn’t make it further than week 8. It was just too hard, then I went on holidays and totally lost my routine. I hope this is not gonna happen to me this time.
What does Freeletics cost?
Here a little screenshot of the costs in Germany, im not quite sure how much it costs in dollars or pounds:
Freeletics in Germany costs 34,99 €. Compared to paying for a gym it’s a great deal. Freeletics offers every week as many trainings as you wish fitted to your past trainings and training times. One weak spot of the old Freeletics App has always been that you had trainings made for being outdoors. As I like doing my workout inside the new function 2×2 helps a lot, you can change whatever training to a 2×2 session and skip running parts or burpee frogs, etc.
Freeletics always shows people training outside, within their Freeletics groups, but im just not that kind of guy. I don’t like working out outside, jumping up and down in the snow. Als I really don’t like being out the in summer, with around 30 degrees every training, especially Freeletics drains all my energy in like 5 minutes. The workout itself is that exhausting that I prefer working out in the shade of my flat.
What do I expect from Freeletics?
What i personally expect from Freeletics is, of course, that I’m gonna look like on of the Freeletics models shown all over their website. For example that one here:
That, by the way, is the Freeletics Team from the office in Munich. Nice team, aren’t they? Let’s see, whether 15 weeks of greek god workouts will give me a six-pack like this.
Why is Freeletics so f****** hard?
I cannot really explain, but as Freeletics is totally focusing on overall condition and athletic it’s a totally different training than going to the gym. Freeletics is a kind of High-Intensity Training, that exclusively works with your own bodyweight.
In like 5 minutes I reach my condition goals and have to do loads of breaks. I don’t do those breaks because of laziness, just because quite often my muscles cannot do the workout anymore, they or I just can’t breathe anymore and feel my heartbeat all over my body.
The whole concept is based on time, which means, that you have to all the exercises as fast as possible. To complete every repetition properly makes a real difference, working out in a sloppy way, doesn’t train the body properly and is leading to muscle plain and can even lead to injuries.
Regarding to wikipedia.org High-Intensity-Training is a training concept in bodybuilding and is made of short and very hard exercising units, followed by day or weeks of recovery. That training concept leads to a better muscle-stimulation compared to other sports.
Whether that works for me or not, we will see!
As I never done Freeletics for the 15 weeks, I’m gonna start this time and try to really finish the 15 weeks. Yesterday I made the first exercises! You give Freeletics your weight, height and tell the app how athletic you are and you have to do as many push ups as possible in 100 seconds and as many squats as possible in 300 minutes.
I made 30 push ups and 70 squats in the time given me by the app. Puuuh, I got really lazy the last month. Today I already woke up with sore muscles, that’s gonna be really funny for the next 2 or 3 weeks.
I’m gonna do my first training tomorrow, I have to do Artemis, which is kind of hard for being my first workout:
100 burpees, 150 squats and 100 push ups, let’s see, if im gonna get through that. It’s for sure gonna be really hard!
Freeletics with or without changing your nutrition
I’m not gonna change my nutrition habits totally. I think i eat relatively healthy and i don’t have any overweight problems at all. I have a weight of around 60 kilograms and am 180 centimeters tall and would like to gain muscles and weight in a healthy way. I’m furthermore gonna try to drink every morning and evening a protein shake from the website egg.de and hope im gonna gain some kilograms.
The only thing missing is to start right now. So, let’s go, let’s gain some additional weight. I’ll keep you updated in my blog. Feel free to comment.
