1. What Are Body-Weight Exercises?
They’re exercises that use your body’s weight as resistance. They usually target many muscles and help build stability and strength. You don’t need any machines or weights, so you can do them just about anywhere. You can also tailor these exercises to your needs. So whether you’re a beginner or an expert, you can get big benefits.
This might be the most well-known body-weight exercise. You’ll use your triceps and chest muscles the most, since you’re pushing up your body weight. At the same time, your deltoids — the muscles in your shoulder — support your arms’ movement, and your abdominal muscles work to keep your core tight. Don’t let your hips or back dip down or arch up. Make controlled, smooth movements.
