Bodyweight: Your Own Gym
by: Hard Coded Fitness, LLC • 3.7K
More certain than both death and taxes is that you will find an excuse not to go to the gym. You have no time. It's expensive. You don't know what to do there. You went last week. It's raining. You might be coming down with something. Your star sign's in Mercury retrograde. And yet, everyone knows how important it is to stay in shape - but nobody wants put in the work it takes to get there, especially not when it involves going to the much-loathed gym. Enter Mark Lauren's Bodyweight Training: You Are Your Own Gym app.
The app's 10-week fitness programs guide you through series of bodyweight exercises that don't require a gym membership or even purchasing any kind of equipment. You'll follow the video instruction to perform routines that make use of the body that you have to shape the body that you want.
The difficulty level varies from extremely basic moves that absolutely anyone can perform to serious challenges meant for in-shape athletes. The exercises are all designed to work your most important muscle groups as efficiently as possible. You'll cycle through sets focusing on "Push," "Pull," "Legs," and "Core." If you follow the program day-by-day, expect to notice significant positive changes in both your strength and your daily energy.
The daily routines in the 10-week programs range from 25-36 minutes each, which is time almost anyone can find. If you're really pressed some days, you can select a quick workout instead, which will give you quick bursts of intense exercises to follow for whatever interval you choose. The convenience of requiring neither gym nor equipment means it's great for traveling as well.
The app does lack much background information regarding the exercises, and there's no integration with any nutritional planning. Diet and exercise go hand-in-hand, and it's crucial to be eating right if you're interested in body recomposition. If you truly want to take your personal fitness into your own hands, it's highly recommended that you supplement YAYOG with reading up on nutritional science.
Leafcutter Studios' adaptation of Mark Lauren's work into the Bodyweight Training: You Are Your Own Gym app is extraordinarily useful for anyone interested in fitness - and that should be everyone!
