Tips to Build More Muscle with Bodyweight Exercises
You don’t want to join a gym or a class, or maybe you can’t—you have a busy life, you might have ankle biters running your schedule and you need to workout at home, but have no home gym—all you have is your readied body. No worries, you don’t need equipment to build muscle and get fit. You can achieve your fitness goals with bodyweight exercises, and you can make them even more challenging and rewarding with these tips.
Freeze that Bodyweight Exercise
If you’ve ever done a DVD workout, many will have you ‘hold’ your exercise. While you shake and sweat and silently curse your digital trainer, you might be wondering “Why is this guy a sadist?” These isometric freezes actually force the muscle to work harder which will increase your overall muscle building progress if you work it into your regular routine.
Un-Balance your Bodyweight Exercise
Comfort is the enemy of progress, and your body is in a constant state of achieving comfort and balance. Throw it off balance! If you do a plank the same way every time, your body adapts and you’ll see less progress. But if you do a diamond push up, or go wide with one arm and alternate, you’re using new muscles AND you’re telling your body that YOU’RE in control.
To piggy back that, don’t just change your position or angle, raise an arm during a burpee, raise a leg during a plank—let your body take on additional weight and work new muscle fibers and watch your progress take off.
Circuit Train Bodyweight Exercises
Don’t do 3 sets of 12 and move on. Do all of your exercises together. Do your burpees, Heismans, pushups, lunges, Russian twists and dips back to back to back. Increase your burn and keep your body on its ‘toes’ by changing things up.
Build More Muscle with BCAAs
While you’re burning your muscles and priming them for optimum results FEED and FUEL your muscles with BCAAs. Branched Chain Amino Acids feed, fuel and help repair muscles so you can increase mass faster. And we bet you’ve never had a comprehensive Intra-Training supplement like MaxQ’s. With a whopping 24.5 gram scoop with 10 GRAMS of BCAAs in each scoop, you’ll get more gains for your bodyweight exercise pains. Get it now.
