Body weight training is often overlooked when beginning most strength training programs. Often your own weight provides enough resistance for a good sweat session. Summer is quickly approaching so the warmer weather means you can take most of your workouts to your backyard – for a hassle free and no equipment necessary workout.
The key to starting any new strength-training program is the idea of progressive training, which is planning a series of exercises that build strength through lifting progressively heavier weight or more challenging movements. Your body weight can serve as the foundation for starting any strength-training program.

Be sure to check out the workout cards for some quick progressive workout routines.
