This was how I was first introduced to exercise, my dad was in the Army Reserve and showed me at age 13 how to do push-ups, pull-ups, situps, squatting and various other simple but very effective exercises. All of them helped me get stronger and more athletic. Feeling strong was fun.
Under new circumstances...
Over the last couple of months, everyone has been left with no choice but to workout at home if they want to get in exercise. And the options are endless. Some have the equipment, most do not.
No Equipment? No Problem.
There are 100’s of bodyweight exercises that will keep your heart pounding and the blood pumping! Endless combinations, reps schemes, and times to keep things varied and fun.
Can I get stronger with just bodyweight exercises?
Yes, you can. Adding plyometrics; taking many of those movements you know and adding a level of speed and explosiveness to them will do the trick.
What is the best bodyweight workout routine?
There is no shortage of free workouts available on the internet, in fact we have 15 free workouts on our home page. www.CrossFitMahwah.com (Scroll to the bottom and check it out)
What if I am bored and have plateaued with the free workouts?
Getting bored and plateuing happens. You have to ask yourself, “what are my goals?” Then find a professional coach who will help you reach those goals with a safe and effective program that evolves to suit your needs. Online coaching is less than personal training, convenient and extremely effective. Let them be your filter. You live your life.
