Bodyweight Training Benefits (VIDEO)

 

Not only is bodyweight training easy, you'll find that it's fun too! In this video I share with you four benefits of bodyweight training. 

1. Convenient

Bodyweight exercises can be done outside, in a hotel room, or while traveling. 

2. Saves Time

With the help of an online trainer, you can put together a quick circuit of exercises that will work the entire body in not a lot of time. 

3. Budget Friendly

Invest in a pull-up bar (about $50) and you'll never need to spend thousands of dollars a year on a gym membership again. 

4. Sense of Accomplishment

Finally achieving a pull-up is one of the most satisfying feelings you'll ever experience.

What Is A Bodyweight Exercise? 

A bodyweight exercise is defined as a strength training exercise that does not require free weights. Instead, the person's body weight provides the resistance for the movement. 

What Are Some Examples of Bodyweight Exercises? 

  • Push-ups
  • Sit-Ups
  • Chin-Ups, Pull-Ups
  • Plank
  • Plank to Push-Ups
  • Squats
  • Lunges
  • Pistol Squats
  • Bicycles
  • Side Plank

Why Should I Do Bodyweight Exercises? 

Whether you love them or hate them, body weight exercises are a great way to free yourself from the gym. Not only are bodyweight exercises empowering, they are a great source of motivation. I hear so many clients say that one of their fitness goals is to eventually do a pull-up, even it's just one!

Bodyweight exercises can build strength as well as improve balance, flexibility and body awareness. Not only that but bodyweight workouts are time efficient and great at blasting your core. They can easily be modified for any fitness level.
