Lean, athletic, sculpted, and ripped are just a few of the words to describe Brad Pitt’s physique in Fight Club.


This workout was inspired by the fight club movie.  A fast paced, core focused workout to shred up that tummy in no time.



Have you ever seen the body of an MMA fighter? Well, for the most part they are ripped. Low body fat, fast, explosive athletes that can knock out the toughest guy with a single punch.   OOOUUCHHH!!!   This new movie is set to release in September of 2011.

Plot Summary

An ex-Marine haunted by a tragic past, Tommy Riordan returns to his hometown of Pittsburgh and enlists his father, a recovered alcoholic and his former coach, to train him for an MMA tournament awarding the biggest purse in the history of the sport. As Tommy blazes a violent path towards the title prize, his brother, Brendan, a former MMA fighter unable to make ends meet as a public school teacher, returns to the amateur ring to provide for his family. Even though years have passed, recriminations and past betrayals keep Brendan bitterly estranged from both Tommy and his father. But when Brendan’s unlikely rise as an underdog sets him on a collision course with Tommy, the two brothers must finally confront the forces that tore them apart, all the while waging the most intense, winner-takes-all battle of their lives.   What an amazing story!  And with a cast of Tom Hardy, Joel Edgerton, and Nick Nolte it’s sure to be a big hit.   You can see the hours of dedication that Hardy and Edgerton put into their body’s for this film.  This inspired the physique 180 team to take a Warrior Movie Workout to the masses.

Warrior Movie Workout

10 Fitness Myths REVEALED!!!

Posted: June 14, 2011 in Uncategorized

THe Physique 180 team blows the doors off the most common fitness myths.


No more hear say from the roided out guy from the gym.


The truth and nothing but the truth!

Now you know…. and knowing is half the battle

You aren’t the only one.  

Unsure what exercise to do next, you jump on the nearest machine, do a couple of reps, and then move on to the elliptical or the showers.  You know that going to they gym, weight training, cardio training, and flexibility, are all important if you want to change your body and live a healthier lifestyle.


Do you go to the gym and do the same routine every day or every week?  When you first started, your body changed quickly, but now your progress has slowed or even come to a screeching halt.  You have been experiencing the plateau effect.  This is when your body becomes unresponsive to certain exercises because it knows whats coming (muscle confusion).  This concept has been part of the fitness industry for decades but has been brought to the forefront buy infomercials like P90X.  

These fitness system DVD’s promise results in the comfort of your own living room with the help of a personal trainer on your TV screen.  Some people enjoy exercising and sweating on their living room carpet.  They enjoy hiding pull-up bars, concealing adjustable dumbbells in the corner of their bedroom, and buying more equipment when they progress far beyond the basics.  

The truth about these DVD’s… is that they are not for everyone.  Diving head first into a training program well beyond the exerciser can be detrimental.  Your body must adjust to the stresses you place on it.  Ligaments and tendons must strengthen in order to keep up with the demand of high intensity training.  If you go too hard too fast, the end result will be injury and more money spent on physical therapy.  

Also, it can be discouraging if your are unable to complete any of the exercises shown.  No one wants to be told that they are not good enough or fit enough to keep up.  When this happens, people quit.  I see it all of the time!  

Others enjoy the inspiring atmosphere and social aspect of their local health club.  They don’t want to cancel their membership.  They don’t want to clutter their homes or apartments with fitness equipment.  They don’t want to buy more resistance bands or 5 lb plates for their dumbbells.  

But when you go to the gym, are you getting the most out of it?  Is your body changing?  Are you seeing the results you want?

You join a gym hoping to see your body transform quickly.  But you get frustrated when the change is minimal or non exsistant.  This is when you make a big decision: give up and try again next year or hire a personal trainer to push your body to the next level.  Now the problem becomes: which trainer is the best for you?  What can they do to garentee your fitness success?

Your trainer should provide you with guidance on all three sides of the fitness triangle.  Weight training, cardio training, and nutrition are important aspects to your fitness success.  

Now another issue comes up… scheduling!  Is the trainer you want available at the same times you are?  If the trainer is one of the best, chances are, they have a full roster or are unavailable.

Well soon there will be new hope!

Are you ready for the summer blockbuster of 2011?


In a universe as vast as it is mysterious, a small but powerful force has existed for centuries. Protectors of peace and justice, they are called the Green Lantern Corps. A brotherhood of warriors sworn to keep intergalactic order, each Green Lantern wears a ring that grants him superpowers. But when a new enemy called Parallax threatens to destroy the balance of power in the Universe, their fate and the fate of Earth lie in the hands of their newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan.

Hal, played by Ryan Reynolds, is a test pilot human for the Green Lanterns, who have never harnessed the infinite powers of the ring before. But Hal is clearly the missing piece to the puzzle, and along with his determination and willpower, he has one thing no member of the Corps has ever had: humanity. With the encouragement Carol Ferris (Blake Lively), if Hal can quickly master his new powers and find the courage to overcome his fears, he may prove to be not only the key to defeating Parallax…he will become the greatest Green Lantern of all.
