Our understanding of what goes on in your body during and as a result of exercise has increased exponentially. Sport and exercise science has literally dissected everything to do with health and fitness and that information is available for all to see via the internet.
Because of this abundance of exercise information, it’s very easy to get bogged down in the minutiae of exercise rather than focus on simply getting up and actually doing some!
Many sports also have a long tradition of using bodyweight exercises for strength and conditioning purposes. Gymnasts develop unbelievable levels of strength (and incredible physiques) using mostly bodyweight exercises and many martial arts practitioners actually frown upon strength training using weights as they believe training this way can make you big, bulky and slow.
While this is a bit of a myth, as the correct exercises can make you fast, explosive and mobile, there is no denying that bodyweight training is effective for developing high levels of fitness and strength.
Rather than debate which form of exercise is best, in this e-book you will learn all about the most accessible and convenient form of exercise – bodyweight training.
Note: we haven’t said it’s the best (although a great many experts believe this to be the case).
It’s simply that bodyweight training can be performed anywhere and at any time which makes it an ideal form of training when you are on the road, want to train at home or simply prefer not to spend your hard-earned money on a gym membership
