What if I were to tell you that you could build an incredibly lean, strong and chiseled physique with only your body as a tool. Think about that for a second. There would be no need for an expensive gym membership and no need for bulky home gym equipment. Imagine the possibilities, imagine the freedom.
You’re travelling, you’re stuck at the office, the gym is closed, you don’t have time to commute….. All the typical excuses just don’t apply anymore. You could do a month long trip and you wouldn’t have to worry about losing strength or muscle. You are the gym and you can always get a workout in. This is just one of the many benefits of bodyweight training and trust me when I tell you there are many more.

It can be frustrating to see your weights go down as you get leaner and subconciously you may blow your diet to try and maintain your lifts. Whereas with a bodyweight training routine you know damn well if you keep the cals low you will have an easier time moving your bodyweight through space. Even a 3 or 4 lbs drop in weight tends to improve bodyweight performance noticeably.
