Training Tip of the Week

Use Your Body Weight

Your body weight is one of the best workout tools you have!

Body weight training (or Calisthenics) is one of the most effective workout methods available. Exercises like Squats, Lunges, Sit-Ups, Push-Ups, Chin-Ups, or Dips use body weight as resistance.

These exercises can be very challenging, but generally have easier versions for each exercise. For example many people are not strong enough to do Push-ups on the floor, however Push-ups can be done on an incline (e.g upper body is higher than the feet) in order to make this exercise achievable for anyone.

Body weight exercises often utilize many muscles at once, having to produce force or stabilize a joint.

But perhaps the greatest advantage of body weight exercises is that they can be done anywhere!
