Bodyweight Exercise For Fat Loss: Shed The Pounds!

Dec 6, 2007
Bodyweight exercise is excellent for fat loss. That's right, you don't need a room full of expensive equipment or a costly gym membership to shed the extra pounds of fat keeping you from looking and performing your best. All you need is the gym you were born with and knowledge to use it!

You may not realize it, but bodyweight exercise is already the number one choice for fat burning. Just think about it. Walking, jogging and running are all bodyweight exercises. Even exercises that use equipment like biking, rowing or stair climbing can be considered bodyweight exercises, since the weight you are moving around is your own. But in my opinion, other bodyweight exercises and calisthenics are even better for fat loss.

Why?

This is very important. In most cases, looking your best takes more than just losing fat. It really is not a question of just becoming smaller due to fat loss. The body you reveal after the fat loss is just as important to the final outcome of looking your best.

Aerobic activity like running, biking and stair climbing are common methods for burning fat. And while they do improve cardiorespiratory endurance, they don't do a lot to create the strong, athletic, attractive body hiding underneath the fat. However, bodyweight exercise works the entire body (upper, lower and core) and simultaneously builds a muscular, lean body while also improve heart and lung power.

Here are 3 reasons why bodyweight calisthenics are better than aerobic exercises for burning fat AND looking your best...

- Bodyweight calisthenics makes you stronger, better conditioned and more coordinated. Flexibility and balance are also greatly improved. You overall performance improves. Plus, burning off those unwanted pounds doesn't only make you look better, but improves performance as well!

- Bodyweight exercise, done on a regular, consistent basis, invigorates and rejuvenates your body. You feel better. And regular exercise greatly improves health. Not to mention, losing extra fat will do wonders for the results of your next doctors visit!

- Unlike aerobic exercise, bodyweight calisthenics doesn't only burn fat and improve cardiorespiratory function, it builds a rock solid body as well. So, when the fat melts off, there is a strong, lean body revealed underneath. This is really the key to creating a body you can be proud of. You must burn fat and build an attractive physique at the same time!

As you can see, using bodyweight exercise to burn fat has its advantages. The fat melts away which helps you perform, feel and look better. But more importantly, the body that is revealed once the fat burns off is strong, muscular and attractive!
