Body Weight Exercise - Introduction

Hey all,

It's been a while since I made an actual post on here, my apologies. I've been a little bussy with a side project on squidoo. I thought it was about time I started working on the content here as well.

For the next few posts I'm going to be focusing on strengthening exercises that you can do with just your own body weight and a minimal amount of equipment. Right now I'm on a bus on my way to work, so I just wanted to give a little introduction to the series.

Body weight exercise is great. That sentence seems like it should have a bit more ummph to it, but the statement stands on its on. It's great. It requires little equipment, is basically free, and you can do it in your own home. For anyone in transit (staying in a hotel room, etc...) it can be used to tide you over until you can hit the gym again. No you won't get HUGE with body weight exercises, but you can expect to see improvements in strength, muscle tone, and balance.

For the next few posts I'll cover some common body weight exercises, common mistakes while doing them, ways to progress them, and a little bit of anatomy/biomechanics just for the fun of it.

As always, if you have any questions please don't hesitate to comment or contact me directly. Cheers!
