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.
