Think Thin Thursday ~ Beginner's "Bodyweight Fitness" Fun

By
Real Estate Agent with Florida Supreme Realty SL514814

Why do I like BODYWEIGHT FITNESS?  Because it's a NO EXCUSES workout! 

Anywhere you have gravity and enough room to fit your body standing and prone is all that you need to begin. Each exercise should take between 30 and 60 seconds to complete. If you cannot continue after only 10 seconds that's okay too. Just move on to the next exercise and try again on your next workout day This isn't a competition, however, it may feel somewhat familiar to you as the calisthenics we did back in grade school. The only thing lacking are your classmates and friends laughing, having fun and critiquing your every move during gym class. Speaking of moves, form is important, so don't rush through the exercises, take your time and do as much as you can with good form. That's it! Have fun!  

This video is through the courtesy of YouTube and BarBrothers FL. I chose to share it because the sequence of their routine aligns with my personal and accepted theory of fitness. Generally moving from larger muscle groups to smaller and from the bodv's core to the extremities. The benefit to you is a much more safe workout incorporating both aerobic and anaerobic activity into a complete fitness program that can be accomplished in a short amount of time and is very effective when performed 3 to 4 times per week. I believe you'll be amazed at what you can accomplish in a month.

Good morning Kevin. Great reminder that my goal of excercising must be greater than the excuses I can create. And, I have a lot of excuses lately. Thanks for the reminder about focusing on the goal. Enjoy your day!

Your bell will toll someday Wayne. It takes so little effort to make the best investment of your LIFE.

Thanks for sharing this information about exercise on a real estate blog site.

If you don't believe that real estate is physically demanding, think again. I've been at this a long, long time and have seen far too many agents simply drop dead by ignoring their sleep, nutrition and physicality. I'm a proponent of avoiding that and unfortunately have to post here in "Just for Fun". Real estate offers excellent quality of life although far too little quantity when all is said and done.

Good morning,  Kevin - the "no rushing" rule with a lot of "routine"  work/approaches is one where I strive for mastery or at least improvement.

Resistance training thrives the slower you go. How perfectly can you perform a 30 second pushup? Do 3 or 5 and tell me you're the Master!

Kevin,

Slow is always amazing contrary to what some think.  Although we are not into the same strategy that you are, that slow movement works in other practices.  Cheers, A

Oh, I change it up a lot Alexandra, slow, slower and slowest to be specific.

Oh wow, it does take a lot of disciplined effort for a slow and deliberate move. But, as you point out, worth it in the long run.

It's intense, so glad you gave it a try. You rarely see that kind of intensity being performed at the gym.
