THE TRUTH ABOUT BODYWEIGHT TRAINING

Bodyweight training has received a lot of attention in the fitness industry these days. And it seems like more and more guys are turning in barbells and dumbbells for a spot on their basement floor to do a hundred push-ups and call it a day…

Here’s the deal—bodyweight training is a very real solution for guys who hate the gym, can’t make it to the gym or travel a lot. But the question I’m going to answer today is this… Is bodyweight training really all it’s cracked up to be? Will it build the rock-hard physique you’re looking for?

Well, the answer isn’t exactly yes or no… But I’ll make it easy for you. 

Bodyweight Training Benefits

Bodyweight training is appealing to men everywhere because, honestly, it provides a solution for guys who can’t get to the gym (and it doesn’t involve building your own home training center). And if you can’t make it to the gym for whatever reason, I think a bodyweight workout is better than missing a workout altogether.

In fact, I’ve developed an entire bodyweight system for packing on mass, fast. (check it out HERE). Because there are secret ways to make bodyweight training incredibly powerful… One of which I’m going to share with you in this post.

But first, let’s nail down the top two reasons why men are flocking to bodyweight training…

Convenience

Bodyweight workouts are convenient. No commute to the gym. No changing out of your pajamas into your gym clothes. No stinky guy in the squat rack next to you. Honesty, this is probably the top reason most guys stick to bodyweight training—because it’s convenient.

This especially makes sense for men who have a taxing career, work a job with inconsistent hours (or long shifts) or even have a large family with obligations rotating around the clock every day. No matter how you spin it, convenience is a perk.

Safety

Bodyweight workouts can be safer than weight training. I say can be because weight training isn’t dangerous if you take care to practice perfect form. Still, bodyweight training naturally reduces the risk of tweaking a muscle while holding a weight load above your head or on your back, etc.

However, it’s important to keep in mind that if you’re unruly with your bodyweight form you put yourself at just as much risk of injury as you would in the gym. So just “winging it” on a bodyweight program isn’t a good idea… But all in all, if you have a history of injuries (or you’re trying to recover from one), bodyweight training can be a safe place to start…

And with my Bodyweight MASS program, I’ve made sure you’ll keep your joints and muscles safe with step-by-step instructions for each bodyweight exercise that’ll help you pack on muscle (safely) from home. Check it out HERE.

Bulk Up With Bodyweight Training

Bodyweight training has its own perks. But even though it has some general benefits, when it comes to building muscle fast, we have to take a closer look at what kind of bodyweight training you do… Because simply ripping a few bodyweight exercises from some website may help you maintain muscle (or just plain get in better shape)…

But they won’t help you BUILD MASS that turns heads. Which is why you need something more powerful than traditional bodyweight training has to offer you. You need a unique way to use your bodyweight to pack on muscle in a hurry…

My Bodyweight MASS program is packed with 3 little-known solutions that’ll make your bodyweight program a true muscle-builder. Here’s one of my favorite techniques from it…

Maximize Time Under Tension

Maximizing time under tension is a mind-trick you can use to add muscle mass to your frame with nothing but your bodyweight. Because when push comes to shove, your body doesn’t know the difference between a bench press and a bunch of pushups…

Your body only understands and responds to tension…

Add tension to your bodyweight exercise and your muscles will have no choice but to grow. And luckily, adding tension (without adding weight) is simple…

To maximize time under tension and activate greater muscle growth perform each bodyweight exercise slowly…

For instance, if you’re training for a bigger chest, slow down your “up-down cadence” to 5-seconds down and 5-seconds up instead of 1-second down and 1-second up. You’ll notice the different impact this has on your muscles from the very start.

If you take these slow-tempo repetitions to mechanical failure, you won’t even feel like you missed the gym. Plus, you’ll get a crazy muscle-building pump while you’re at it.

Your Next Step

My final thought on bodyweight training is this—if you do it right, you never have to set foot into a gym again to pack on muscle…

And I’ve created just the program to make that happen for you… So you can build more muscle mass than you ever thought possible from the comfort of your own home. So your next step is simple…
