I preach it over and over to my clients that it’s essential that
each of us is the master of our own bodies. We must be able to manage
the day-to-day physical demands of our bodies. What better way to work
on that this summer than by training with body weight exercises!
These warm months are especially prime for working on body weight exercises
because realistically, most people don’t want to be cooped up in
a hot stuffy gym. These exercises can be done anywhere!
Below you will find a variety of upper and lower body exercises that can
be done with only your body as resistance. I suggest doing these exercises
every other day, or every third day in three to five sets of 10-20 repetitions.
You can group the exercises together—i.e. upper body Monday, lower
body exercises Tuesday etc.—or do them all at once. If you have
questions about proper form or technique, please ask your health coach
Note: Campbell County Health suggests that you talk to your doctor before
you start an exercise program.
