The benefits of strength training are well known. If you don’t have access to free weights or machines, you can use the best machine of all – yourself.
Using your own body weight for strength and conditioning offers plenty of versatile exercise options, and can be done anywhere – home, hotel room, garage, beach, and at the park.
Here’s some of my personal favourites:
- Mountain Climbers
Very often bodyweight exercises are put into a circuit by doing a set of each exercise without stopping until you’ve completed one set of every exercise, which equals one circuit.
In fact, a few weeks ago I shared a great Fat Blasting Bodyweight Circuit Workout HERE. Make sure you check it out 😊
STORE CUPBOARD EXERCISES
I know it sounds a bit weird but you can turn household items into calorie-torching, body-sculpting tools.
Those large water bottles, cans of beans, and bags of rice in your store cupboard aren’t just for cooking. If you don’t have access to dumbbells or machines, these will do the job.
You can do bicep curls, shoulder presses, and tricep kick backs with them as well as many more fantastic exercises.
Other ideas include a gallon jug of water. You can even grab a couple bags of sand from a local DIY store. These are all great to squat, lunge and do step ups with.
Chairs and towels and other household items can help shake up your routine by supporting your body weight and adding movements that engage your core, and improve your balance.
Other Opportunities To Move
Take the stairs, park furthest away from the door, and take a walk around the block during your lunch hour are all very easy ways to squeeze in more exercise.
We all know that exercise is a key factor in weight loss so let’s make it happen.
