BodyWeight Exercises For Strength And Endurance!
To get what you want, you gotta do something different, so why not incorporate BodyWeight Exercises into your training regime.
BodyWeight Exercises are timeless fitness systems that have secretly used by the worlds top athletes and warriors to build sensational strength, endurance and of course physiques for thousands of years.
The Great Gama, India’s finest fighter, undefeated in thousands of fighting competitions was a fanatical advocate of the power of doing daily hindu squats (a type of free squat).
Pretty Boy Floyd Mayweather,Boxer, Michael Jordan, Basketball Legend and just about every top athlete that you can think of have their own sequence of bodyweight exercises.
“(‘Pretty Boy’ Floyd Mayweather).. hovers within 3 or 4 pounds of his fighting weight at all times by jumping rope, playing basketball, and doing body-weight exercises twice a week.” (Mens Health)
BodyWeight exercises rely only on your own bodyweight, and some of the exercises that you would be more familiar with include push ups, squats, chin ups and sit ups.
Think about it – if your workouts consisted primarily of chin ups, how fit and strong would you become?
Clearly, not all of us will be able to begin with chin ups, but with these exercises you are exercising a number of muscle groups simultaneously in a way that promotes balance, and unquestionably produces extraordinary results.
If we take a head to head between push ups and the bench press, and compare and contrast.
Sure the bench press will give you well defined pecs, but at what cost. The fact is weight lifting rather than straightening our bodies out, and then strengthening them simply exacerbates the imbalances that many of us already have in our bodies. Short tight muscles, followed by missed training sessions due to injury is where weight training will ultimately take you.
How often will you need to lie flat on your back and push a heavy object up from it? Hopefully, not too often.
Compare this to the fully functional press up that not only strengthens the chest, arms and neck like the bench press but also stresses the muscles of your lower back and abdominals, thereby delivering a much more effective exercise. If you don’t believe me test them out in the gym, if you’re still a member and you will quickly note the difference.
If you want a body that emanantes energy, strength and power then you must try BodyWeight exercises to see for yourself how superior they are over the typical bump and grunt weights routine.
Energy, Strength, Stamina = Bodyweight Exercises.
REMEMBER – PLAY FULL OUT!
