Question by stbenn22: What is the hardest workout program you can suggest (without going to the gym more than once a week) ?
I need something effective and on the insane side of challenging. I don’t have access to any weird or special equipment (yoga balls, climbing ropes or gear, parachutes, etc…), so that stuff is out of the question. I need a workout program that will incorporate as many elements of physical fitness as possible (strength, endurance, speed, pain tolerance, stretching, nutrition, and long lasting fitnes). Your suggestions are appreciated.

You should seriously consider Pilates. Pilates is a totaly body fitness system developed by Joseph Pilates decades ago. The system focuses on complete strength using your own body as resistence as well as flexibility and health.
Pilates has enjoyed a resurging popularity recently as dancers and other performers have found it to be effective and fast. Once it took hold it found it’s way into classes in gyms all over the world.
There are devices used in some pilates classes but none of these are necessary. If you pick up some literature on the exercises taught by the creator and do them faithfully every day you will not even recognize your body in 3 months.
