Bodyweight Training – You Better Believe it!

Bodyweight training is the secret you’ve been missing out on.

Bodyweight training isn’t a new concept by any means, but it is widely overlooked as a viable way to develop total body strength.  If I asked you to give me 10 different body weight exercises could you?  Maybe, maybe not.  More than likely you’d rattle off push ups, situps, pull ups, squats, lunges, dips, and maybe a few others.  If I asked you to give me 10 variations of push ups, squats, leg raises, bridges, pull ups, and hand stand push ups could you?  Once again this is probably a hit or miss answer.

There are hundreds of exercises you can incorporate into your bodyweight training.

If you haven’t figured it out yet I’m trying to show you that there are numerous exercises that you can incorporate into your bodyweight training that you aren’t even doing.  The fitness world has conditioned you to believe that in order to be successful you need to have a personal trainer/ sports trainer, a membership to a gym, and numerous machines and weights to get the job done.

Stop listening to them and buying into the garbage they are feeding you.  The fitness industry wants you to believe that you need all of those things to develop strength and get in shape so they will continue to make money off of you.  It’s called job security.  The truth is that you can get in shape with bodyweight training and by utilizing minimal equipment such as a few dumbbells, medicine balls, and other objects you can find lying around the house.

Look at the guy in the video above.  He is training in the park and has an unbelievable level of fitness that you too can develop.  No it won’t come easy and it is going to take a significant amount of time, but if you put in the work then you will succeed at bodyweight training.

Stop being a sheep, don’t follow along blindly to what the fitness industry is telling you.  Take control of your fitness regimen and make the transition to bodyweight training.  I use to be a firm believer in lifting weights, but since I have seen the light my main form of training consists of this method.  Stay tuned for more tips, tricks, exercises, and workouts that will be completely dedicated to bodyweight training.

The last method of training you will ever need is bodyweight training.


Kick Ass Cardio Workout: The M100

Start strong and finish stronger that’s my motto, so for my first training tidbit I am excited to share this kick ass cardio/ total body workout with you.  The M100 is comprised of 3 simple and efficient exercises:  Squat Thrust, Mountain Climbers, Squat Jump.  Why is it called the M100, probably because you have to complete 100 reps without quitting.

My husband and I have done this on several occasions and let me tell you it is tough.  When we did it though we tweaked the parameters a bit; instead of 100 total reps we worked for 100 reps of each exercise.  I would suggest you start off working for 100 total reps and see where it goes from there.

You might have to start off slow, but after a few weeks of training you should try to pick up the pace and get those 100 reps done as fast as possible.  Once you’ve got that down add some more reps.  How many times should you do this a week?  At least 3 to start and word towards performing the M100 at the end of each workout.

Good luck training and make sure to check out my other site The Last Ronin’s Blog.
