There are several advantages to doing no weight workouts, also known as ground exercises. One, it doesn’t cost you any money. Two, you can do it from the comfort of your own home. Three, you can do them at any time you want. And four, besides providing you a nice and regular workout, it can also be a great addition to target specific areas next to your regular sports routine. I want to share my favorite no weight workouts with you to make you feel inspired and get you going!
Due to my pregnancy, there was a time I was without a regular exercise routine for almost a year. And then afterwards, it really took a while to get back to the gym after my c-section. But a good 9 months after my daughter has been born I still seem to struggle sometimes to get to the gym. There have been nights I simply feel too tired to go, and other nights there simply isn’t enough time with other activities on hand. This is where simple no weight workouts really come in handy!
My favorite no weight workouts can be done on the floor of your home, require no equipment, take little understanding, are relatively easy to do and provide good results. But it took me a while to get into a routine of exercises which I felt added up nicely, or weren’t boring to do on a daily basis*.
* Like those inevitable crunches. Boring!
Although I have attended several fitness-related classes through the years which gave me a pretty good feeling about posture and correct form, my go-to database for no weight workouts is… Pinterest! Yes, this image collection website has a wonderful selection of detailed ground exercises, which require no additional material at all. And this is where I found a website called spotebi.com. A wonderful place that shares both detailed illustrations and animations on how to practice your exercises safely and correctly. Plus, they share heaps of beautifully designed workout routines!
