Body Weight Exercises

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. Can you use things at home to add in as weights? Fill empty milk cartons with concrete or sand? Fill up a small suitcase with books to do front squats with or hold something heavy to do weighted sit ups. Walking lunges holding something heavy in each hand?


  2. A movement I forgot about - you can do bw Tricep Extensions.

    Gripo the edge of a bench chair, counter top, car bumber, whatever, facing downward.

    Lower your body by bending at elbows, as if you were doing a skull-crusher and lowering the bar towards your head.

    Push yourself up using your tris - it's pretty tough.

    ya thanks for the idea there BKrabbe that WOULD be ideal at an in home thing... but the issue here is that I HAVE a membership now... just wont be anywhere I can get my hands on weights or anything heavy soon and will very likely have only my own BW to work with so specifically need thosee kind of exercises. Thank you again anyhow for the input.
    no problem poops

  4. Hey poops, I've had several friends visit the Gym you're headed off too, and most of them have gone for the same reason. They've all been able to use the recreation equipment, and as long as you are patient, I'm sure you'll be able to use it also. Just don't go in trying to prove anything. Use the benches when you get the chance but stick to BW exercises in your down time. I wish you the best man - everything works out in the end!
