Body Weight Training Zone!


Bodyweight training exercises are a great way to economically and efficiently train to Perform Better! The majority of bodyweight exercises do not need free weights – your own body weight provides the necessary resistance. Well known bodyweight exercises are the push-up, the pull-up, and the sit-up. Weights may be used to increase the difficulty of most bodyweight exercises.


Compared to weight lifting, bodyweight training typically requires more flexibility and balance, and it can effectively strengthen core muscles with the addition of speed or unstable surfaces. Additionally, bodyweight exercises are usually less likely to cause injury compared to weight lifting.

Martin Rooney"Your body is the most important piece of equipment you own. Bodyweight training, therefore, is considered the first step in my training programs. In order to enhance the results of bodyweight work, I am a big fan of equipment like sandbags, rings, weight vests and suspension trainers. Not only are these pieces of equipment versatile and fun, but I am able to get results for my athletes practically anywhere."
