5 Rad Bodyweight Exercises that aren't Squats, Push Ups, Sit Ups, Planks or Lunges

For me, the best thing that came from last years 8 week gym lock down was bodyweight training. The lock down forced me to find a different way to train, to re-visit old movements and to figure some new ones out. This stuff comes quite naturally to me, I know that and I know bodyweight training is hard for a lot of people. There's a couple of reasons why.

  1. They aren't as strong as how heavy they are.

  2. They don't have the adequate range of motion for certain movements.

The good news is, those things can change and bodyweight training can help.

It should be a goal of ours to have the ability to move our body the way it's designed to. It makes everything easier! After 70 bodyweight session in 8 weeks during our big lockdown I felt strong, lean and mobile. I found a new and great appreciation for what we are capable of with no equipment. I thrived on the bodyweight sessions and it's something I hope to continue with albeit interspersed with other training modes. So, here are 5 of my favourites that aren't just your typical bodyweight movements. My favourite way to rip in is to pair two exercises up and go back and forth 30 seconds on 15 off for at least 8 rounds.

Half Hindu Push Up

Rotating Side Bridge

Reverse Bear Crawls


Frog Squat
