The Best Bodyweight Exercises - for a no equipment workout

The Best Bodyweight Exercises (for a no equipment workout)

Even if you love your weights, sometimes there are no substitute bodyweight exercises. Who can ignore classics such as the toe touch or oblique crunch?

Bodyweight exercises are functional and often need no equipment at all, making them great for an early morning workout at home, or cracking on with your routine even when the gym is packed to the rafters. Bodyweight exercises are brilliant and we’ve selected some of the best for you to try at home or with us at The Gym Group.

What Are Bodyweight Exercises?

Bodyweight exercises give you the flexibility to work out and build strength without any equipment. Simply by using your weight and gravity, you can have a perfectly fulfilling workout without the need for weights. Bodyweight exercise is all about making your body to work to get a good body workout. Still with us?

Even though these bodyweight exercises require no equipment, you can make things harder for a more intense workout with some simple pieces of kit, such as resistance bands or weight belts.
