Bodywieght Training
« on: January 26, 2009, 01:58:31 PM »
I'm trying to find some good information about using your own body weight for strength training. Does anyone know of any good resources for this type of thing?

Simple but effective, chins are probably the best back exercise going, it also hits the biceps. Pushups are a great chest and tricep workout. Try doing a head stand against a wall, now push your self off the ground and your working your deltoids (shoulders) and triceps, this one takes a little practice. Dips will work your pecs and triceps. try sitting on some steps and then with your arms behind you lower and lift your self for a great tricep workout. There are all kinds of core stuff you can do like crunches, kneeups, back extensions. Log your reps and try to increase them each workout :)

If you have access to huge sides of beef it is HIGHLY recommended!

Hey Scott, so this comes with instructional documents or some sort? LOL
Just let everyone knows Scott is the type of person that can be inside the octagon and fight against Georges St. Pierre.

Since I don't eat beef, would huge sides of tofu work?

The balance ball K refered to is a great addition to your core training. Crunches with the balance aspect the ball brings into play are 10 times more effective. The ball also makes a great platform to do back extensions. Something I am currently working on is to assume a plank position on the ball, that is a pushup ready position with your toes on the ball, now lift one leg, but wait it gets better, now lift the opposite arm of the already lifted leg :o This one will get you ready for the octagon grasshopper :D
