For both the rookie and the seasoned body weight routines are an very important portion of your weight workout. Some moves are difficult to master but worth the effort as the benefits are enormous.
I think I could write all day telling you why everyone needs to include bodyweight exercises in their workout routine but I will save you from that and hit the key points.
Workout whenever you want anywhere you want to
With an extremely demanding routine at home and at the office, workouts can often take a back seat any time it’s inconvenient. This makes convenience very important if you’re intending to squeeze in an exercise session. If we are honest with ourselves, we know that our workout routines will likely be skipped if it’s too hard to fit the gym in. To be honest, if it is an effort to get to the gym to workout chances are that it will not happen.
Between work, travel, family, plus the host of other projects people have getting to the gym is not always a possibility. With body weight exercises you don’t have to worry about making it to the gym. You don’t need any equipment or much room they can do them when you have time and anyplace.
Perfect for beginners
For someone just starting out, there’s no better way to get off on the right foot. It is essential you learn how to control your body before you think about adding any extra resistance to it. A good way to think of it is like an infant who has to learn to walk before they can run. Starting on the right foot will set you up for good technique and limit your exposure to risk, as you progress or use heavyweight.
great workout routine to get you started
Every exercise has a variation that makes it more difficult for the event person, and the ability to scale it back for the beginner. No matter your fitness level you will be able to get a full range of motion and be challenged. Take push ups for example, there are plenty of different push up variations that can fit anyone.
An advanced bodybuilder can do a one hand push up. If this is your first time to the gym you can perform them against the wall or some other raised area.
The variation is incredible with body weight exercises. They can be used to build strength, or you can make a cardiovascular workout routine. Maybe a little creativity is necessary, but there are near endless combinations and varieties of bodyweight exercises.
Workout With A Friend
It’s easy to work out with a buddy or in a group because there isn’t any equipment necessary. Give it a try, I always find it better when I have somebody to work out with. This makes it easy. Because each exercise has a progression it will not matter what fitness level people are at. As mentioned before every exercise can be scaled and modify to fit anybody. .
