Use Your Body Weight

Many people think that they need a fancy gym and elaborate fitness equipment in order to get an effective workout. The truth is you really don’t need any equipment other than yourself and a little bit of creativity to get the blood flowing.

When looking at your fitness programme you should always look to master your own bodyweight before adding weight to a specific exercise that you are performing. For instance, you should learn to perform a series of pushups correctly before attempting the bench press. Once you master the pushup you can then move on to the bench press. The same goes for other exercises including the squat as well. Learn how to squat effectively with your own bodyweight before adding a weighted bar to the movement.
