Good Morning! Today I would like to talk about how to properly incorporate bodyweight training into your workout routine. While weight training IS absolutely essential for your progress, it should NOT be the only way that you are training. You do not have to walk into the gym and put up as much weight as possible every time you work out. If you can move your own body via push-ups, pull-ups, body weight squats, ab wheel rollouts, etc., you are better off than people who lift heavy weights yet cannot do a pull-up.
Just like the gladiators, the strongest and fittest survive ... and they also get noticed.
The Spartacus Workout: Body-Weight Excercise is a proven, high-intensity workout that trains every inch of your body at homeJust take 30 minutes to pump up your body and TURN ALL YOUR MUSCLES ON!
The MINIMUM EFFECTIVE DOSE is simply the smallest dose that will produce a desired outcome and anything BEYOND the MED is wasteful. That being said, use this training you can do when you are stuck for time and you still want results. Follow the training below, 4 times per week for 12 -16 weeks to get the body you want. Day 1Close grip pushups 10 reps (Can be done on knees or on an incline surface)

Thats a goal you can try. Push your self a bit more...

We are bombarded by the media constantly with the latest in diet and exercise fads. They all promise great results, and for a time they... may just do that. But are you going to stick with this for the next six months? For a year?
Use this at the end of your training today to empty the tank or a stand alone training if you lack time to get the gym. Can be done anywhere. Enjoy
Your circuit looks like this:
1. Body-Weight Squat: Do 9 reps
2. Pushup: Do 9 reps
3. Jumping Jacks: Do 9 reps
That's one round. Your pace is determined by your fitness: You can rest as needed between each exercise—simply go by "feel."
Do a total of 9 rounds. Try to complete the entire workout in 9 minutes or less.
