What is bodyweight training?
Bodyweight training is a highly effective methodology which doesn’t rely on equipment to tone and strengthen muscles all over the body. In bodyweight training we use your body as a tool, providing weight and resistance to build new muscle through a variety of targeted techniques.
You might have inadvertently tried bodyweight training before – as it’s often incorporated as part of general fitness regimes. Some popular exercises include squats, press ups and push ups, lunges and tricep dips.
How can it help me?
Bodyweight training is an excellent way to strengthen and tone the muscles all over your body. It’s something we incorporate across our broad range of training programmes. Its benefits include:
- Toning muscle for a slimmer, more defined physique
- Developing core strength
- Increased muscle mass
- Greater flexibility and balance
- Improved endurance
- Enhanced co-ordination
- Support with weight loss
- Increased muscle strength
- Increased muscle endurance
- Increased Cardiovascular fitness
- Reduced body fat
- Increased muscle tone
Studies have shown that bodyweight training can also increase bone density and supports better mood and more restful sleep. Some experts believe that bodyweight exercise is important because it mimics the movement of the body better than a machine, providing multi-directional support and strengthening.
This kind of training is loved by both professional athletes and fitness enthusiasts. All you need is gravity and your body – so you can do these exercises anytime, anywhere. At The PT Factory we use advanced equipment to help our clients achieve their goals – but we always incorporate bodyweight exercises alongside other techniques due to their efficacy and simplicity.
It’s important to note that technique is crucially important when it comes to bodyweight training. If you do these exercises incorrectly, you run the risk of injury either instantly or over time – especially as you get into the habit of getting it wrong. This is why expert guidance is key to ensure that you are fully in alignment and getting the most out of each exercise.
Who is bodyweight training for?
Bodyweight training is actually suitable for everyone provided it is done safely and with professional support.
It’s also great for anyone who wants to get into a routine they can sustain at home without specialist gym equipment.
We see best results when this kind of training is combined with other advanced techniques such as core training, High Intensity Training and Plyometric Training.
