Excess body weight has a bad rep… You can learn how to use your body weight to your advantage when you workout with a 500 rep body weight workout routine!

In keeping with the positive spirit of developing a healthy lifestyle and healthy habits, we are going to take a different look at the additional few pounds that we have. Body weight only exercises have been around since… well, the beginning of time. When Adam and Eve worked out, I’m sure they didn’t use Bowflex, dumbbells or fancy resistance bands. No… Adam and Eve pushed up, lunged, squatted and crunched their way to hundreds of years of life.

Today, there is a movement back to body weight only exercises and home workouts. Frankly, many of us do not have the time to go to a gym, or the money to afford a gym membership. In addition, you have to have this “extra” room to put fancy machines or bulky exercise equipment in. Therefore, it’s time we use what we have to the best of our potential. And, in this case, those with extra body weight should not be discouraged, because when working out, body weight is our friend. It’s really a twisted relationship, because as you spend time with your new friend, you will realize that she won’t be there for you as she used to.

Let’s not discount the exercises that we can do only using our body weight. Quite honestly, these are the best exercises to do anyway.
