Bodyweight Exercise- All You Need is You

 bodyweight exercise

According to US News and World Report, one of 2014’s biggest fitness trends is bodyweight exercise. Bodyweight exercise or resistance fitness is exactly what it sounds like → using your own bodyweight for strength training, no special equipment required.

It is the perfect no-excuse workout because, really, what is keeping you from pumping out a few push-ups whenever you have a free 10 minutes? For me, it’s my need to learn and be reminded of proper form plus I need the additional motivation and encouraging words from the teacher!

Bodyweight workouts are a great option for at home workouts and when you are traveling. Grokker has 100+ no-equipment workouts — you can find them all using Grokker’s Fitness Video Filter and selecting “no equipment required”.

Here are two of my favorites:

Plyometric bodyweight challenge with Sarah Kusch

 

Bodyweight workout with Jon Stratford

 

AND I’m really excited about the release of our newest fitness series called x5 Bodyweight Intensity. It’s a 5 week program with experts Pace and Go that we’re hearing so much amazing feedback about.  I haven’t started it yet, but will let you know how it goes.

Have you tried Bodyweight fitness?  Tell me your experience in the comments on any of these bodyweight videos!
