Bodyweight training is becoming more and more popular. It is great because you can use your body in multiple ways to make your exercises easier or harder, depending on your fitness level. Not to mention that you can exercise literally anywhere. Here are some significant bodyweight training benefits:
✅ The main problem in fitness is the lack of consistency. Because you can exercise anywhere, it will make it easier to stick to your routine.
✅ Improves your relative strengths. We are used to measuring strength in pounds that we can lift and in reps. Relative strength is how well you move and control your body in space, which can be very useful in your everyday life.
✅ You can build muscle without weights. The key to building muscle is progressive overload. You can either achieve that by increasing weights or by increasing reps.
✅ It is good for your joints. That is not good news if you can lift heavy, but you struggle to stand on one leg. It means that you have a strength imbalance. Bodyweight training demands both stability and strength, which protects your joints.
