“Exercise for Weight Loss” is an article series detailing the most successful exercise strategies that can be used to assist in speeding up the weight loss process, and help you end-up with a sleek, toned physique once your bodyweight gets down to your goal-weight.

 

The ‘no equipment’ gym

Squats. Situps. Pushups. Pull-ups. Dips. Lunges. Star-jumps. Plank. High-knees. Isometric holds. The list goes on. What do these exercises all have in common?

They require ZERO gym equipment. So, how many pushups can you currently do in a row? How many pull-ups? How long can you hold a plank?  If your numbers for this list don’t read “20; 5; 2 minutes” then you should invest some time using your bodyweight as a workout tool.

Bodyweight exercises are wonderful for fitness and weight loss, because being strong enough to move your body in space is pretty essential for general life, and (in my experience) this method regulates bodyweight well, maybe because the brain realises what it’s up-against – lighter body equals easier exercises. The exercises are also quite scalable, so you will be able to do a version of these no matter how weak you are, and increase their difficulty as you get stronger.

Getting stronger is important

Getting stronger and losing weight is even better. Getting stronger, fitter, losing weight and having to purchase no equipment to do so? That’s almost miraculous when you consider what people pay for gym memberships nowadays.

Start your ‘no equipment’ gym today. Save money, achieve your goals, and then spread your success story and help others to do the same.
