Everywhere you turn someone is touting a new diet or a new exercise device to help you increase strength and lose weight. These things usually have two things in common: they are minimally effective and they cost you money!
Bodyweight training is not a highly touted form of exercise, for the simple reason that no one is going to be making thousands of dollars from you getting fit in the comfort of your own home without exercise equipment. But the truth is that not only are these exercises effective, in many cases they are more effective and less prone to injury than many of the exercises being performed in every neighborhood gym.
This book is for anyone interested in trying to gain strength and flexibility through the use of simple bodyweight exercises. Whether you are a fitness novice or a seasoned gym enthusiast, you can benefit from the exercises in this book and most certainly from incorporating bodyweight exercises into your routine.

Bodyweight exercises are strength training exercises that do not require free weights; the practitioner's own weight provides the resistance for the movement. Weights can still be incorporated to increase the difficulty of many bodyweight exercises. While some exercises do require some sort of equipment, the majority of bodyweight exercises require none. Bodyweight exercises, compared to weight lifting, often require much more flexibility and balance in order to perform repetitions. Such exercises include handstand pushups, planche pushups, and bridges.
As with any training program, to fully realize the potential benefit of bodyweight training one should adhere to a program that covers aspects of nutrition, exercising and body building techniques. If followed properly, benefits such as increased stamina, strength and flexibility are easily attainable.
Training programs will vary depending on your specific goals. Those who are satisfied with their weight and only want their bodies toned will approach the exercises differently than those who want to lose weight in addition to maintaining muscle tone. Current body mass, bodyweight, metabolic rate and body measurements are all important pieces of information to keep in mind while creating a training regime. For naturally lean body types, lighter exercises are appropriate whereas for solid body types heavier body exercises are recommended.
Bodyweight training is not an overnight process; it requires effort and diligence to bring effective results. Care should be taken when undertaking a workout program since over exerting and excessive working out can lead to muscle damage. Bodyweight training needs to be done at a regulated and well-paced schedule that brings maximum and long lasting results within an adequate time frame. This type of training requires the use of proper techniques that need to be well understood before being performed in order to avoid injury.
