5 Reasons You DON’T Need Weight Training

Posted by Joel Marion

Now, you may think that someone dropped a weight plate on my head for me to make such a controversial statement, but the reality is that you don’t “need” weight training to annihilate body fat and obtain a lean, attractive body.

Does this mean that I now feel that weight training is worthless?  Of course not.  But I do feel that bodyweight training has a LOT of benefits, and even a number of benefits that conventional weight training does not.

Benefit #1 – No equipment or gym membership required.  With bodyweight training, you don’t need a single piece of equipment.  Not a single dumbbell, exercise ball, or resistance ball.  No gym membership or even “home gym” required—the only thing you need is you…brining me to the next “benefit”.

Benefit #2 – You can burn fat ANYWHERE.  Whether you are traveling or at home, in a hotel room or your own room, outside or inside, you can perform bodyweight workouts exactly as they are meant to be performed.

You don’t have to worry about what gym you’re going to train at while on the road, or how you’re going to manage to get an effective workout in that crappy hotel fitness center—you just do the same exact fat-burning workout you’d do while at home…even if you don’t have access to ANY equipment…because you don’t need it.

But if convenience and portability aren’t the only benefits of bodyweight training, in fact bodyweight possesses functional benefits that most weight training workouts don’t.  For example:

Benefit #3 – You’ll build Relative Strength.  That just means you’ll be very strong relative to your weight. Relative strength is directly correlated to high performance, injury prevention and functionality in everyday life

Benefit #4 – You’ll ignite your nervous system.  Bodyweight training allows you to move in every possible range of motion. To do this, you have to improve the timing and coordination of your movements. This means you’ll force your nervous system to work harder, recruit more muscle and burn more fat.

Benefit #5 – Unmatched metabolic demand and calorie burn.  Stringing bodyweight exercises together is the BEST way to create a super intense metabolic workout that will burn tons of fat both during and AFTER your session. Because you don’t have any cumbersome equipment, you can quickly move from one exercise to another without rest.

Those are some pretty serious benefits.

And if those benefits sound good to you, my good friends Adam and Ryan are making their top FIVE bodyweight workouts available for one more day for the price of one.

That’s FOUR no-equipment necessary workouts FREE.

Fat-burning workouts you can do ANYWHERE <——- Four FREE

I’d serious take advantage of that deal today.  Five for the price of one rarely comes around.

There’s one day left to grab yours.

No-equipment necessary workouts <—– Four FREE

Keep rockin’,

I definitely agree with all of those benefits. To get nice and lean and shred fat, bodyweight workouts are king! but what if you want to gain like 20 lbs of muscle? is that possible using only your bodyweight?

Personally i’m a big fan of bodyweight exercises, for all the reasons you have picked up on.

They work because they are natural body movements, what we as humans are designed for. The benefits are huge.

If you know what you are doing with the right bodyweight exercises you don’t need much more. You only have to look at bruce lee’s physique to see the power of certain strong bodyweight exercises he used.

Really good post…
