Stop Ignoring Bodyweight Training And Start Benefiting From It

There is a running argument about which is better, bodyweight training or weight training. Both training methods have their devoted followers and they butt heads constantly. Each claim a long list of benefits for their chosen training method. When you're looking for a workout program to follow, avoid this silly argument.

Bodyweight training is beneficial.

Weight training is beneficial.

Use both training methods effectively and you'll get more fitness, fat loss and physique building results. Avoid picking one over the other, and you'll benefit greatly. And by all means, don't neglect the value of bodyweight exercise!

It is this last statement I want to talk about today.

Normally, men and women start an exercise program because they finally realize they are out of shape. You know what I mean. You look in the mirror one day and suddenly see a different person staring back at you. And this person has no muscle tone and a lot of fat. It seems as i! f you've changed for the worst, almost overnight.

So, you start searching for a workout program to follow. But not just any workout will do. You want the BEST! Somehow you feel if you find that magical workout, you'll reverse months, if not years of unhealthy eating and inactivity. And this is when you run into the bodyweight training vs. weight training debate.

I hate to be the one to break it to you, but there is no BEST workout program. Neither a bodyweight training program or a weight training program are going to immediately reverse the effects of prolonged periods of inactivity and a lousy diet. So, stop looking for the BEST, and start exercising with what you have. This means bodyweight training for most of you!

You see, what I don't want you to do is prolong your lack of exercise any longer. If you wrongly believe weight training is superior to bodyweight training, you won't do anything until you have enough money to join a gym or buy expensive equ! ipment. You're only prolonging your results. It is like saying! you are not going to learn how to drive until you have a Formula 1 racecar. The fact is, you learn to drive with whatever car is available, and then you change cars when you can afford it.

You can start bodyweight training right away. And the faster you start, the faster you can start seeing, feeling and using the performance and appearance benefits of exercise. You know the benefits I'm talking about.

Things like:

- Stronger, bigger muscles.
- Less fat.
- Increased heart and lung power.

And that's just for starters.

So, if you want to get in shape, my advice is DON'T WAIT! Use what you have and use a progressive exercise workout with consistency and conviction. If you don't have a gym membership, weights or other exercise equipment, start using the gym you were born with! Start your bodyweight training program today, and start getting the results you desire to live life to the fullest!
