Why Bodyweight Training Is the Future of Fitness
There's a way to lose fat and get fit without taking on the expense of a gym membership - and without having to wait for someone else to finish sweating on machines so you can finally take your turn.
This way of exercising is called bodyweight training - and it's easy enough for anyone of any age and any fitness level to do.
As an added bonus, it's at a price that everyone can afford.
Bodyweight training is an exercise method that won't cost you one penny to get started.
You can begin the basics right where you are - home, office or traveling.
You can do the simple moves like push-ups, sit-ups, crunches or one of the many different kinds of movements.
That's one of the reasons this exercise is predicted to be a top trend in the coming years.
While it's an easy method, that doesn't mean that it's a walk in the park.
Bodyweight training will push your body out of its sluggish couch potato routine.
Or it will ramp up what you're currently doing and take you to new levels of body strength and defined muscles.
You can use bodyweight training to boost your energy and to gain flexibility.
Not only will it help you burn fat, lose weight and gain muscle, but you'll also be able to see and feel a difference in less than a month.
To get to that point, you'll need to have a little bit of training. Choose an easy to follow guide like Bodyweight Exercise Revolution.
With this one, you'll understand why you have to balance the workout method with recovery time.
And why - if you don't, you're only slowing or stopping your strength building goal.
Most people who use bodyweight training don't understand the simple but easily corrected mistakes that they make that sabotage their efforts.
For example, most beginners think that more repetitions is better. But that's a mistake.
Too much volume causes your body's fat burning ability to slow down.
You lose a lot of valuable potential when you don't know how to handle recovery.
If you're currently relying solely on home or at the gym equipment to help you work out, then you're also losing some valuable potential.
Your body not only can do the work that machines do, but it needs to do the work.
Certain items can help. Dip stands create resistance and also force your body to act as its own stabilizer.
In other words, it won't do the work that your body can do.
But that's what certain types of exercise equipment does.
It takes the effort away from your body, which is exactly what it doesn't need to happen.
By getting a program to follow, you can learn how to work the bodyweight training for best results.
You'll learn how long to train, when to back off and how to turn your body into the fit machine it was meant to be.
