I have to agree with all of the points made in the below video, as well as the progression. The only exercise I'd add is bodyweight triceps extensions, which utilizes the same movement pattern, but with a deeper range of motion. I include a second video for this exercise.

Health is Life
Last year was the year of the diet. So was the previous year, and the year before that, and the year before that… Isn’t it time for a different kind of focus? It is not as if smarter eating is out of fashion. But it is only one part of the health equation. While it is true that you are what you eat, you are also what you do with what you eat.

Here's why you should get ballin': A stability ball works your abs way more than regular crunches do. Plus, use it in place of a bench for strength moves and your core gets a workout — you'll engage your deep obliques and lower-back muscles to stay in place.

Have you noticed how much time at the gym is lost on unnecessary small talk? Whenever I pass by any of the “big” gyms in the area, I observe, with horror, how some gym members come mostly to exercise their maxillofacial muscles while chatting with the other gym-goers. To me, exercising your facial muscles is not the primary goal of visiting a gym. Even today at one of the big gyms I kept glancing at quite a substantial group of people, formed by the regular members of that gym, as they congregated in the narrowest passage area of the room.

Make your strength training or body-weight exercises more challenging by adding a balance element. Turn bilateral exercises unilateral. Instead of a regular deadlift, try a single leg deadlift. Instead of doing standing bicep curls, balance on one leg instead of two.

Form is a specific way of performing a movement, often a strength training exercise, to avoid injury, prevent “cheating” and increase strength. It doesn’t matter how many pushups or any other exercise you can do in a minute if you’re not doing a single one correctly, with correct form. A useful way to approach exercise is in terms of progression: Perfect your technique, then later add weight and/or speed.
