Can Body Weight Exercises Help You Build Muscle and Lose Weight?
With all the machines and free weights at gyms nowadays many wonder and question if body weight exercises is enough to help you in your workouts or are the exercises not challenging enough to accomplish your fitness goals. If you ever have used P90X or Insanity from Beach Body then you know the answer, but for some of you out there doing these exercises may not be enough even in the more advanced versions for your fitness level.
If your a more advance weight lifter and need more of a challenge from exercises such as pull ups push ups then then I suggest adding a weighted vest instead of dropping the mas they are some of the best exercises you can do in your workouts for your body. Just add more as needed and do a more advanced version of the exercises as you progress for the lifters that are not physically fit enough yet to do them.
To conclude adding at least one or more body weight exercises to your workouts might be just what you need to push your workouts to the next level. For more click here now sign up for my free fitness newsletter there.
