Bodyweight exercises are exercises that do not require free weights; your own weight provides the resistance for the movement. Regardless of age, strength, or experience level, everyone can do it-and everyone can benefit from this type of fitness programming. Movements such as the push-up, the pull-up, and the sit-up are some of the most common bodyweight exercises. Bodyweight exercises are not only simple and convenient, but they’re also a great way to improve strength, balance and flexibility in one shot. Not to mention, you won’t even need to leave the house to get in a solid workout. One effective exercise is the bear crawl. In order to do the bear crawl, begin on the hands and knees, rise up onto the toes, tighten the core, and slowly reach forward with the right arm and right knee, followed by the left side. Continue the crawl for 8-10 reps.
