If you aren’t a gym rat, chances are gym equipment, weights, kettlebells and all those classes can be pretty intimidating. So if you want to start working out, but don’t want to spend a lot of money on a gym membership and equipment, bodyweight routines can be a perfect way to get moving.
Bodyweight exercises are just what they sound like – and can be modified for practically anybody. Think squats, lunges, sit-ups, etc. The important thing is to get started. Do 10 repetitions – and if you can’t do that, do 5. You’ll work your way up from there! One of my favorite ways to do body weight exercises is to participate in 30 day challenges where you work on your number of repetitions and variations of the exercise over a month. Keeps it interesting – and allows your body to adjust and get stronger without a great risk of sore muscles or injury.
