How To Train With Bodyweight

Posted by

If you have only a small space at home for workouts, or do not want to buy any equipment, body weight training is a suitable alternative. Your body does not know, which equipment is used. That’s why you can increase power and endurance, but you have to do all exercises with a high intensity. Now I give some advice how to train with bodyweight.

BASIC EXERCISES

The most important muscle groups in bodyweight training are thighs, back, chest and abdominals. Of course, the assistant groups get work besides those four biggest ones.

Squats, Lunges and Bulgarian Splits

You can do squats with different foot stances (narrow, medium and wide) and hand positions. There are different versions for lunges and Bulgarian split squats, too.

Chin-Ups

You need a some kind of chin-up bar. It can be wall or door attached. Here are some examples.

Push-Ups

The basic push-up is performed on the floor with your hands about shoulder-width apart. Placing your feet on a bench and doing decline push-ups, will place more emphasis on your upper chest. If you are strong enough, you can do handstand push-ups, which are focusing to your shoulders.

Abdominal Exercises

There are hundreds of abdominal exercises. Check out this website.
