Podcast 84 – Bodyweight Training


senior fitness with meredith

Hello and thank you for joining us on another podcast!

In this episode we are discussing the topic of body weight exercises and are they just as effective for you as exercising with weights?

Body weight exercises like push up, sit ups, chin ups etc. have been a staple of core exercises since the beginning of time. They are a great way to get a workout in with very little to no equipment and still keep your body in great physical condition.

Using only the weight of your body can be used in many different varieties and if done correctly can be applied to all areas of your body for a full body workout.

We’re big fans of body weight training here at SFWM and hopefully after this podcast you will have some new ideas on how body weight training can help you and your workouts.

In This Episode You Will Learn:

1). What is defined as a body weight exercise and how they can be useful to anyone’s weekly exercise routine because of their simplicity.

2). How body weight training not only gives you a great resistance style workout but also cardio as well.

3). The benefits of body weight training and implementing higher rep style workout and how that also helps improve your form when you do decide to use weights.

4). Complete lower body examples of some body weight exercises you can try in your home.

5). Complete upper body examples of some body weight exercises you can try in your home.

6). How body weight exercising is becoming more accepted and popular as we have spent more time at home exercising with little to no equipment and how you can get started quickly.


Thank you again for joining us on this episode, we hope you picked up some value from the tips and suggestions in this episode about exercising using only your body weight.

No matter what level of fitness you are, there is always something you can do to stay active whether at home, outside or at a gym without the use of weights or equipment. We are big fans of body weight training and we hope you find it useful as well.

Til the next episode!
