If it Challenges you-It Changes You
Gyms are still closed.
You don’t have any weights at home.
The weights you have at home are pretty limited.
The weights you ordered STILL haven’t arrived.
Are bodyweight exercises really good enough?? Short answer…YES!
Bodyweight exercises are a simple, effective way to improve balance, flexibility, and strength. If you feel like the regular bodyweight exercise is too easy, try changing things up. Make sure that when you modify a move, you feel the appropriate muscle working. A harder version of an exercise isn’t necessarily better if the correct muscles are not firing. This can lead to muscle imbalances and possibly injury.
Remember, by changing up the way we do “simple” exercises, it challenges our bodies to adapt and grow stronger.
