Are Animal Movement exercises something new?

Using animal forms for exercise and vitality dates back as early as 186 BCE, when the famous Chinese physician Hua Tuo promoted “Five Animal Frolics” which were the Tiger, Deer, Bear, Monkey and Bird. (Hua Tuo still appeared in the prime of his life when he was almost 100, and so was regarded as immortal.) Since then, many disciplines have used some forms of animal movements.

What makes this video different from other Animal Movement workouts?

After studying multiple disciplines that use animal movements in their conditioning, Mike has fused elements of each style to form an easy-to-learn but incredibly powerful format. First, he walks you through the step-by-step instructions for mastering the movements; then he shows you how to put it all together. With Mike’s program, you’ll be putting together your own creative combo moves in no time!

Why are Animal Movements so great?

  • Enhanced Workouts: No matter what style of training you prefer, your efforts will be improved upon by increasing your flexibility, agility, strength, power, endurance, coordination and speed. The Animal flow workout will help with all of these!
  • Athletic Performance: One of the unique aspects of Animal Movement training is that it is multi-planar, meaning that you are moving through multiple planes of motion, rather than in just one like when running in a straight line. Thus, the carryover from Animal Movements into real world sports and athleticism is much greater. As in playing an actual sport, you are teaching your body to coordinate its movements as an entire unit rather than compartmentalizing.
  • Cardiovascular Training: You can choose how to structure your Animal Flow to achieve different cardio response. You can perform some explosive forms and switches that are very intense and challenge your anaerobic energy system, followed by shorter rest periods. For longer more aerobic results you can link together less demanding forms and switches that can be maintained for longer durations at lower intensities!
  • Stability: All of the animal movements place the body in a “four Pillar” position which is with hands and feet in contact with the ground. This position allows all of the stabilization systems to be on and coordinating between each other. Everything from the writsts, shoulders, spine, hips and ankles. There is no joint that is left unchallenged!
  • Mobility/Flexibility: One of the elements that’s most often overlooked in training programs is joint mobility or flexibility. The animal flow workout pushes the body through movements that result in increased mobility and flexibility naturally. Stretching through movement, not isolation.

Animal Flow Workout Testimonial“Just wanted to let you know how much I’ve been enjoying the animal movement practice. Not only has it increased my strength and stamina but my flexibility has also improved, which was a plus I never even considered. It’s also been really easy to practice when I’m traveling, which can be often. Really been interesting finding so many new places to practice. Thanks for keeping it fun staying in shape!”
Dave “Lebo” LeBatard

“Animal movements are very popular conditioning drills for BJJ or Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. I’ve posted many BJJ workouts here that focus on animal movements….The nice thing about Mike’s program is the time and attention he gives to each exercise. I’m a geek so I pick up about every resource on conditioning and I have been let down more than once by the lack of coaching and details in many bodyweight and animal-based DVDs. This is not the case with Mike’s Animal Flow Workouts.”
Jason C. Brown, BJJ Conditioning Coach

“I absolutely love the Animal Flow Workout! Not only did it help me build power and endurance for swimming but it was tons of fun and a unique workout too. Since I bore easy, I’m always looking for a new routine. This workout provides me with a variety of movements that work all muscles and challenges me to step outside my comfort zone. You do a great job explaining the various progressions so I can easily work through the video on my own. I’m so glad to be doing this workout!”

Men’s Health South Africa recently featured Mike and his fitness program on the cover of their June 2011 issue, including a six-page spread, “The Evolution of Exercise,” that describes his bodyweight training!


How did Mike come to bodyweight training and animal movements?

Mike will be the first tell you that he isn’t the inventor of animal movement exercise – in fact, it’s just the opposite. Rather, he’s been a student of it, and bodyweight training in general, and is now sharing what he’s learned with others. His goal is to bring together all bodyweight enthusiasts in an attempt to build a tight community that supports and inspires each other. And animal movement training is a great way to do that!

“I’ve always been interested in non-traditional methods of exercise, but was inspired to seek out new ventures when I was just no longer feeling challenged in my day-to-day routine. So, I put down the dumbbells and began using my own bodyweight for strength training. I tried gymnastics classes, adding tumbling, acrobatics, and hand-balancing to my workout routine. I was so impressed with the results I was seeing in my body that I kept exploring more non-traditional disciplines like Parkour, Handbalancing, and Breakdancing. While each of these disciplines has its unique strengths, they also complement each other and share even more in common. Each uses bodyweight as its basis for building muscle and skills. I’ve been able to draw upon my expertise and personal experience to synthesize the best components of each into my own bodyweight training program. I’ve found that animal movements in particular translate really well into nearly every style of bodyweight training, and so it was natural that this would be my first DVD.” – Mike
