What is body weight training?
Build muscle and joint strength
Think about it. You use your body everyday. For your body to stay well and strong we need to not only use it but help it perform the demands we make of it regularly. Body weight training also helps you progress in other areas of your training too.
Build your core
Core fitness is a fundamental area to work on. Without a strong core any training can be difficult and potentially lead to injury. A strong core is also needed for everyday activites, such as sitting and maintaining good posture. Body weight exercises such as planks, crunches and mountain climbers can all help with improving your core.
Better balance and mobility
Body weight training forces you to rely on your own being to stay balanced and move around. There is no equipment to keep you from falling over or to give you a bit of assistance with a movement. It’s all down to you and your body.
Supports muscle growth
Push ups, pull ups, squats, crunches, planks and lunges when performed correctly can help increase your muscle growth.
Body weight training offers a whole host of exercises that keep your training programme fresh, interesting and engaging. It’s this variety in movement that challenges your body to work a broad range of muscles and gives you a great whole body work out.
Adaptable & efficient
The beauty of body weight exercises is that they are extremely customisable depending on fitness level. They can be performed in limited amounts of time and can help you reach your goals, whether that be weight loss, muscle gain or just moving better than before.
