Body Weight Training BOOM!!!
I’ve noticed a pretty big push in the exercise industry towards body weight training again. It’s a good sign in my opinion. There are some substantial differences
between your conventional workout, where the body is asked to deal with exterior weights in rep fashion, and body weight training where the body must communicate only with itself.
If you’ve ever seen a guy go from your basic L-sit position to a hand stand without letting anything but his hands touch the ground, then you understand the differences I’m talking about.
The physiques of gymnasts are monumental, and so is their strength.
If you feel like you’ve hit a plateau or you could use a new direction, sort of like a fresh and challenging fitness landscape, then I think you should start investing body weight training.
Begin adding the basic foundational exercises into your workout regimen. For me, I think the best thing about a more natural style where you simply use movement and gravity,
rather than barbells and weights, is that it’s skill based.
Body Weight Training forces most people to start at the ground floor, even those who think they’re in great shape.
