“I thought I’d never be able to do a pull-up, ever. But now I can jump up halfway and pull and come down slowly with control. With GMB I’m getting close. Like at 44 I’m gonna be able to do a pull-up. And I’m just like… wow!

“I love the way Integral Strength is put together in a balanced way. I’ve been out hiking 100 miles of the Arizona Trail. Thanks to regular training I felt great!”

Frequently Asked Questions

We’ve also taken the liberty of including the answers here, since the questions aren’t very enlightening on their own ๐Ÿ˜‰

What equipment will I need?

For the the Bodyweight only program, none at all.

For the Fully Equipped versions, you need either a pull-up bar or rings, and we recommend parallettes (p-bars) but they’re not required. After you sign up we’ll give you a list of recommended options, in case you don’t have them yet.

How much time does it take?

That depends on you. You decide how many days a week you want to train, and the program even asks you how much time you have available before each session and adjusts to fit.

But to get real results you’ll want to start with a minimum of 30 minutes, three times per week. Then as you progress you’ll probably find you can handle a bit more over time. Most people can complete their first round of the program in 8 to 10 weeks, and many choose to immediately begin a second cycle.

Can I do this without doing Elements?

Sure, if you’ve done some basic fitness training and can do some bodyweight squats and a few push-ups, then you’re strong enough for IS.

Am I too strong for this?

No. It doesn’t work like that. Though most of the exercises in the program are fairly classic staples, the protocols aren’t based on specific rep ranges or skill progressions. You can challenge yourself with this program at almost any level of strength.

However, if you think you’re a hotshot, you won’t enjoy it anyway, so don’t bother ๐Ÿ˜‰

What exercises are included?

Probably nothing you haven’t seen before.

There’s jumping, squatting, pressing, pulling, core work. Just proven exercises with progressive variations from beginner to advanced, and you can see many of them in the video near the top of the page.

Most importantly, we’ll show you how to do each one correctly and tie them together with the best programming to translate your strength gains to the real world.

Will I learn muscle-ups, levers, iron cross, or other moves?


This is a strength program, not a skill program. You will not learn any skill you’ll be able to brag about on Instagram.

Will this help me finally get pull-ups?

A big ol’ YES to that. You are in the right place.

Will I be able to swap back and forth between the bodyweight and rings tracks?

Nope. This is not currently possible. Maybe in a future version.

Will this get me jacked / help me lose weight / teach me to play guitar?

Nope, maybe, and no.

This program is designed to build strength for performing skillful movements. Your muscles will probably grow as they get stronger, but the protocols here are not optimized for hypertrophy, and we didn’t choose exercises based on aesthetics.

If you’re eating quality foods and restricting calories, you may lose weight, or you may not. That’s a whole complicated can of worms, but the most important thing to understand is that your diet plays a much bigger role in weight loss than your workout. However, this program certainly won’t hurt if you’ve got your nutrition in order.

Does this include cardio?

You’ll definitely get your heart rate up but this isn’t a cardio program. Instead, the conditioning aspect of Integral Strength focuses on strength-endurance, which is how long you can sustain a high level of muscular output. In most athletic activities this is a much more important factor than cardio.

Is there an app I have to download?

No, you just use the browser on your computer or phone to access it.
