Fitness Friday: Bodyweight Countdown

I woke up this morning thinking it was Saturday, which I guess is better than thinking it’s Monday? Nonetheless, it is indeed Friday, which means another workout for you all! I love bodyweight workouts, especially in the summertime when I want to spend as much time as I can outside and as little time as I can inside. But they also are:

  1. Efficient: Bodyweight based exercises create awesome fitness gains in a short amount of time. No need to spend hours at the gym or on the treadmill to see results.
  2. Convenient: You can take bodyweight workouts with you anywhere, and perform them at anytime!
  3. Inexpensive: Gym memberships and equipment can be costly, but the last time I checked, using your bodyweight for exercise is free :)
  4. Heart Pumping: Performing quick bodyweight cardio bursts mixed with strength exercises will keep the heart rate pumping and calories burning.
  5. Fun(!): It’s important to find a form of exercise you love and will stick with. With bodyweight workouts you can make it fun by having your friends or family join you and create a friendly competition.
