What I learned from Bodyweight Strength Training Anatomy
- I believe that to get stronger all trainees should master their own body weight as a form of resistance before moving on to free weights and other training systems. Bodyweight exercises lay the foundation for future training success, and correct performance requires a precise blend of mobility, stability, and motor control.
- Bodyweight training helps in avoiding injury as well as helping it recover for eg if your shoulders are paining from chest press you can do variation of a push up
- You need to train in all plains(Pushing Vs Pulling ,knee-dominant Vs hip-dominant exercises) of the body so which will not cause muscle imbalances which will cause injury
- You will learn how each muscles moves and you can optimize your workout
- When using your body weight for resistance, progressive overload can come in the form of advancing to more challenging exercises or exercise variations or simply performing more repetitions.This ensures that you build or maintain your muscle mass over time while simultaneously losing body fat.
- High-Intensity Interval Training (HIlT) and Metabolic Resistance Training (MRT) can help you lose a lot of body fat in the form of cardio but make sure you do not overdo it cause it might interfere in your diet and recovery
