Today I’m sharing the unique benefits of bodyweight workouts and the truth about my bodyweight training. Yes, I need to expose some misunderstandings and be 100% transparent with you.

Some of my most viewed episodes of Live Lean TV have been my bodyweight workout videos. In fact, one of my 4 minute Tabata workout videos is approaching two million views. A few of my 10 minute bodyweight workouts have also done very well. However with a lot of views, comes a lot of skepticism.

I’ve received a few comments like:

“Bro, there is no way you built that amount of muscle doing just bodyweight workouts.”

So here’s my response.

You’re right.

I didn’t build my physique doing only bodyweight workouts, nor have I ever claimed that.

In my opinion, I feel like I’ve been very clear that the majority of my workouts and programs are mainly focused on weight training. If you’re confused by this, it probably means you’re not following me on Instagram because I share a lot of these videos on my Instagram stories.

But here’s the thing, even though I train at a gym and mainly lift weights, I still do incorporate a lot of bodyweight training into my weight training workouts.

The reason is simple.

There are so many benefits to incorporating bodyweight workouts.

I like creating bodyweight workout videos because I want to make fitness accessible to everyone.

Bodyweight workouts are also a good entry point for people new to fitness because they’re:

1. Inexpensive: anyone can do bodyweight workouts since there is no expensive equipment required.

2. Convenience: you can do bodyweight workouts at home, outside, or on the road in a hotel.

3. Great for fat loss: since you can quickly move from exercise to exercise which allows the heart rate to stay at an elevated level. This is great for beginners, because lets be real, close to 70% of the population is overweight.

However, for me personally, I have an ectomorph body type, meaning I’m predisposed to being skinnier and have to work really hard to build muscle.

“Just looking at my small joints is a dead giveaway that I don’t build muscle easily.”

This is why I primarily focus on weight training with a combination of bodyweight exercises strategically programmed into my workouts.
Benefits of bodyweight workouts combined with weight training workouts:

A really strategic way to add bodyweight exercises to your weight training workouts is to throw in a quick set before or after a set of weighted exercises.

For example:

Benefits of bodyweight exercises BEFORE heavy lifts:

Target and activate specific muscles:
You can really isolate certain muscles when doing bodyweight exercises.

This is because most bodyweight exercises are considered closed kinetic chain exercises (CKCE).

This simply means your limbs are fixed and grounded in place, thus isolating the movement to one specific muscle.

For example, a push up is considered a CKCE because your feet and hands are fixed, and you’re pushing yourself against an immovable object like the ground.

“With a push up you can really focus in on activating the chest muscles without having the stabilizer muscles taking away from the strain on the chest.”
