Can you get fit at home with only body weight workouts?
The answer is YES you can get fit using just your own body weight for home workouts!
So many naturally associate getting fit by going to the gym, lifting weights, getting in some cardio whether it’s a spin class, muscle max class, stair climber or running on the treadmill. And yes, it’s true, that is a way that you can get and stay fit, but that is NOT the only way. You can REALLY change you body with home workouts using your own body weight.
Some of my FAVORITE Body Weight Exercises here:
These are amazing, yet extremely challenging and literally can change the way your body looks. With these exercises, you will obviously need to use a bar to work toward a pull up or chin up.
I’m not going to lie and say these are easy, but if you’re a beginner, grab a partner and have them spot you. You will get in position as if you’re going to do a pull up or chin up and your partner will gently hold onto your chins (your legs will slightly rest on their thighs).
Push Ups and Plank Based Moves
There are so many ways to do a push up. If you’re a beginner, you can start on the floor on your knees and if you’re more advanced you can elevate your feet on a bench with your hands on the floor.
If you’re feeling aggressive, you can place your feet on a wall and push up. I love pushups!!! They are challenging, they help develop your core, and define your chest and arms!
This is another great exercise. Again, if you’re a beginner, start on the floor. If you want to progress and don’t have access to a bench, use a chair to make it higher, keeping your heels light on the floor.
Plyos / Jumps / Lunges / Floor Based Exercises
These can be anything from a burpies, plyo jumps, lunges, split lunges, jumps, and hip bridges – anything that moves your body!
With all my exercises, they can be done from beginner level to athlete level! You can do this!
