25 Bodyweight Exercises To Replace Traditional Weight Lifting Exercises
The great thing about body weight exercises is that you can use them anytime anywhere.
I hate to have my workout slowed down waiting for equipment or weight. Bodyweight exercises are perfect in these situations.
Another way I like to incorporate body weight exercises into my workout routines is to use them as part of a superset.
Example for a chest workout.
Exercise 1a is a heavy dumbbell incline press.
exercise 1b is a push up variation.
Depending on how tired I am will dictate what push up variation I use.
Bodyweight exercises are perfect for deloading weeks. They're easier on your joints. It makes a nice break from heavy lifting.
Below is a list of 25 different bodyweight exercises that you can do instead of traditional free weight exercises. Give them a try.
