Bodybuilding Without A Gym:  Superior Results!

By Jean Littman

If you think bodybuilding without a gym sounds far fetched, think again.  Believe it or not, when it comes to bodybuilding, your own body is far superior to any gym equipment.  There is no doubt that you can use your own bodyweight workout program to achieve gains that regular body building equipment cannot hope to provide.

Conventional bodybuilding gyms are typically jammed to the rafters with latest and greatest in bodybuilding and weightlifting machines.  Inside those gyms attached to those machines are people sweating away, toning and sculpting their bodies in search of the perfect physique.  If only they stopped to consider the benefits and simplicity of bodybuilding without a gym, those dedicated bodybuilders could better results quicker and spend less money.

The Perfect Bodybuilding Machine – Your Own Body

When you switch to bodybuilding without a gym, your muscles work naturally, using the weight of your own body to exercise the muscles.  Common exercises such as chin-ups, push-ups, lunges and squats are all exercises you can use to develop a workout to any level of intensity, depending on your fitness.  As bodyweight bodybuilding has no requirement for weights or specific equipment, it can be worked easily in to a busy schedule.  All in all, it is a fully rounded “super” workout.

Advantages of Bodybuilding Without A Gym

1. Holding Good Form Is Easier.  One real advantage of using your own body weight to workout is that good form and definition can be continually improved and perfected.  This is not always possible with conventional bodybuilding equipment, where your range of motion can be limited by the constraints of the machine.  In addition, crashing the equipment and hurting yourself is no longer an issue, so working out with your own body weight gets your muscles working harder.

2. Working To Exhaustion Is Faster.  A good bodyweight bodybuilding program lets you work to exhaustion much faster than you can on conventional machines.  For example, when exercising on many normal machines, you are simply sitting on a bench.  When exercising with your own bodyweight resistance, you need to exert much more effort and balance from your core muscles.  This is more beneficial for your body, and builds muscle and strength more efficiently.

3. Convenience.  No more waiting in line at the gym waiting for the bodybuilding machines to be free.  No more seeking out gyms when you are away – there is nothing stopping you from hitting the floor and beginning your bodyweight bodybuilding routine wherever you are.

4. Cost Savings.  Bodybuilding without a gym can be done anywhere, you don’t necessarily have to be at a gym.  Provided you have the discipline to workout at home, you simply need a cleared space with a mat and perhaps a balance ball for working on core strength.

The benefits of bodybuilding without a gym are clear.  Bodyweight bodybuilding programs ensure you properly engage your core muscles, and this helps to build a strong, fully functioning spine.  In addition, you will get better muscle gains, lose more fat, and enjoy a much-improved workout.  Now what could be better than that!
