Body-Weight Training: Alternatives to Your Fave Gym Exercises

Body-weight training is one of our fave ways to get and stay fit. First of all, body-weight training pretty much negates the excuse that you need to have a gym membership to get fit. Second, it makes you feel like a bad-ass (I got strong lifting myself!). Third, it’s highly functional (no weirdo machines that put your body or joints in an unnatural position). Fourth, body-weight training is totally convenient. And last but not least, it gets great results! You can get a seriously killer workout just doing things that move your body around like squats, lunges, push-ups and sit-ups.

In case you’re looking to add some more body-weight training to your fitness routine (and you totally should!), we wanted to share this cool infographic from Fix.com on exercises at the gym you can totally replace with body-weight training moves.

  1. Many people trying to get fit think that cardio is the only exercise they need to do. However, muscle training is much more effective at toning the body and leaving you feeling sore the next day. The best healthy living tip out there is to combine a small amount of cardio with a steady amount of weight training for optimum results.
