As you move forward in your journey to “Live Your Fit” everyday, I felt it would be best to leave you with three benefits of bodyweight training AND one last workout for the road. So, don’t be scared and get put some bodyweight training in your life! Ok?
“Most exercises are compound exercises, which are widely considered to favour muscle growth far quicker than isolation exercises.”
“While weight lifting may have a very slight advantage over bodyweight training - in the sense that progression is smoother - bodyweight training makes up for it with its greater variety, and balance, agility, and flexibility gains.”
“Bodyweight exercises are extremely convenient and effective. You don’t need any equipment or gym subscription, since you’ll be using your own body as your resistance.”
