  2. Great webite and information. i wish i’d have had the foundations right to begin with as i have been using an improper swing technique for 10 years now. no injuries or anything from doing a squat with the swing during that time though. looking forward to more posts Forest

    Got the 10 x 10 and into the first week. My question is what can I substitute for the pull up ( never have done one and no equipment for it at home right now) and the burpee.
    I am in pretty good shape physically I have 4 bulging disc and herniated disc,bone spur and an old fracture so the burpee bothers me a little.
    Thanks for a response.

      Thanks for the message Roxanne – just saw this, sorry for the delay in response.

      Do body rows instead of pull ups. There should be a video demo for you to check out included in the product package.

      For the burpees, try them with your hands elevated on something, like a weight bench, large tire, etc.

      Hope that helps!
