11 reasons Why Bodyweight Exercises Kick Butt!

Posted on April 23, 2014 by Anna-Maria Båth


1. Combined strength training and cardio. 
Need for a quickie? Not a lot of time but need to hit cardio and strength in one quick workout? Performing our Bodyweight® exercises and ”active rest” (such as jogging or jumping) in between our strength exercises will keep your heart pumping while still encouraging muscle and strength development.

2. Efficiency. 
Research shows that bodyweight-based exercises gains in very short workout durations. Using only one multifunctional product makes it possible to quick and easy make the transition from one exercise to the next.  It’s good to only have a short rest time between exercises, and of course ”active rest” (such as jumping or jogging). Boost the heart rate and burn even more calories.

3. Agility. 
As you build your strength at the same time you also enhance your flexibility and agility. The more you use your Bodyweight® training system - the more flexible you become.

4. Core. 
The core is more than just abs. In fact, twenty muscles make up the human core, and many Bodyweight® movements can be used to engage all of them. Such exercises improve core strength for better posture and improved athletic performance. 

5. Something for everyone. 
Bodyweight exercises are a great choice because they’re easily modified to challenge any fitness level. Adding extra repetitions, changing the position of your body, you can easily make even the simplest exercise more challenging. And progress is easy to measure, since Bodyweight® exercises offer endless ways to improve and do a little more in each workout. 

6. Convenience. 
Ask someone why they don’t exercise, and I guess many answers will be "no time" or "inconvenience". Bodyweight® training system eliminate many of these common obstacles by allowing anyone to squeeze in workouts wherever they are. 

7. Varied resistance. 
Since Bodyweight® exercises use no weights except your own body weight, increasing resistance is accomplished in other ways. Increase or decrease the angle between your body and the Bodyweight® band.

8. Balance. 
When you exercise with Bodyweight® you simultaneously improve your balance. As we get older our balance impairs - if we do not exercise  to maintain it. This means that if you want to maintain your balance as you get older, you have to use it. Using Bodyweight® and our exercises you can challenge both you and your balance.

9. Fun! 
Bodyweight® training systems can be used inside or outdoors, alone or with a group of friends! Do your workout together instead of watching the latest sit com on TV – I bet you will have more fun exercising. There are countless exercise variations that relieve potential workout boredom!  

10. Results. 
Let's talk results. Bodyweight® exercises get results partly because they involve compound movements which have been shown to be extremely effective for strength gains and performance improvements. 

11. Core.
The results from Bodyweight® training are amplified even more because of the core strength they develop. Improved core strength translates into improved strength gains throughout the entire body and of course – keeps you away from unnecessary back pains.
