The Benefits of Bodyweight At Home Workouts – No Equipment Required
Have you been looking for some at home workouts that you can do that don’t take a whole lot of time and there’s no equipment required? If so, you’ll be happy to know that bodyweight training is always an option. Unfortunately, bodyweight training doesn’t get the respect that it deserves. However, anyone that knows anything about fitness will tell you that bodyweight training is extremely beneficial. As a matter of fact, many people would rather do push-ups than doing bar bell presses.
A lot of “experts” say that you can’t become toned from bodyweight training. This is a common misconception about bodyweight training; because it can help you get toned, lose weight and get in excellent shape. Plus, it’s one of the easiest forms of at home workouts that you can do! It takes a short amount of time and you won’t have to splurge on a ton of equipment to do it. Your body isn’t going to know the difference as to whether or not you’re pushing on a bar or if you’re pushing against your own bodyweight
Fewer injuries and more results.
This is one of the many benefits to doing bodyweight workouts. If you’re one of those people that want to get in great shape and you go to the gym often, there’s a high chance that you’ve experienced some workout-related injuries. For instance, you could feel some pain in your shoulders after doing bench presses. You may even experience some lower-back pain after performing squats in the gym or your knees could be killing you. After doing tri cep extensions, your elbows are probably not feeling to good either.
All of these injuries mean that you will be spending less time in the gym. This is bad news if you’re trying to get toned like the guys on the cover of Men’s Fitness. A person that doesn’t sustain as many injuries is going to workout much more often and he’s going to be in much better shape than the guy that only gets to workout here and there, because he has to take time off for injuries.
If you do bodyweight workouts, you’ll stand a much better chance at getting toned up versus someone that goes to the gym and uses equipment all day long. Gym equipment has a very limited range of motion, which leads to gym-related injuries. However, bodyweight workouts will give you a much more natural range of motion. Therefore, there’s going to be less stress on the joints of your body.
Accomplish cardio and strength training all in one easy workout.
This is another major benefit to bodyweight workouts. If you’re pressed for time, you need a workout that’s going to be fast, easy and give you results. You’ll be happy to know that you can combine strength and cardio training all into one single bodyweight workout. In other words, you could save yourself a ton of time. For instance, you could do a minute of burpees and then switch to jumping jacks. Rinse and repeat this workout and you’ll be able to get that heart pumping in no time. This at home workout will also burn calories, build muscle, and increase your overall level of fitness.
