Bodyweight Training


In this episode we are discussing the topic of body weight exercises and are they just as effective for you as exercising with weights?

Body weight exercises like push up, sit ups, chin ups etc. have been a staple of core exercises since the beginning of time. They are a great way to get a workout in with very little to no equipment and still keep your body in great physical condition.


Using only the weight of your body can be used in many different varieties and if done correctly can be applied to all areas of your body for a full body workout.

We’re big fans of body weight training here at SFWM and hopefully after this podcast you will have some new ideas on how body weight training can help you and your workouts.
