A few months ago I explained the benefits of bodyweight training and also and when I like to use bodyweight training in my own training regimen. In that same article was a video of 22 bodyweight movements that you can use that will require no equipment.
Before going any further, let’s talk about the benefits of bodyweight training again.Bodyweight exercises are high intensity, no load movements allow you to shred fat and improve your conditioning levels to inhumanely fit levels.
You can use bodyweight moves as a workout on its own or as post-lifting conditioning. If you do not believe me about the benefits then try this experiment that I use from time to time.
First find the most muscular meathead in your gym. The guy with biggest arms and chest within 100 miles.
Have him perform 5-8 of these movements in order with a scheme of 30 seconds of work and 15 seconds of rest. 9 times out of 10 he will be completely gassed after the first or second movement. Why?
Because using the treadmill or elliptical and avoiding real conditioning does not make you fit. It does, however, waste 1-2 hours of your day when you could get better results in just 15-25 minutes of a bodyweight movement blitz.
Now I have nothing against muscle as I am always searching for ways to build more of it. Muscle is the name of the game.
But I am not a fan and will not ever be a fan of lame conditioning. It makes my stomach churn in bad ways.
You cannot maximize the full potential of your physique and your athleticism by limiting yourself to sorry forms of conditioning.
I would be lying if I said conditioning is easy. Conditioning hurts and it will test your ticker. But you will be physically and mentally stronger in the long run.more bodyweight training exercises that will require no equipment and no gym.
The above video presents 23 more bodyweight training exercises that will require no equipment and no gym. All you need to do is either use your living room or drive to a local track to perform these movements.
The movements range from simple to difficult so there is something for everyone here. But in time even if your current fitness level is not great you will be able to perform the more difficult movements.
For a simple training scheme, you can choose 4 movements (2 air based, and 2 ground based) and alternate through them in a scheme of 30 seconds of work and 15 seconds of rest.
If you are out of shape or just beginning then I advise you to use a longer rest period of 1-2 minutes between moves.for example
For example Dynamic Climbers into Standing Long Jumps into Lateral Frog Hops into High Knees for 5-10 rounds will have you smoked like a Cuban cigar. Try it out and really push yourself to get the best results!
