Yesterday's Bodyweight Exercises Sure Were Challenging by Stephen Cooper

Isn't it amazing how challenging bodyweight exercises can be? 

Yesterday we did many bodyweight exercises. Most of those exercises focused on the core, chest, and arms. 

The exercises that I chose accomplish three things:

1.  They burn a lot of fat since you have to move your entire body without any assistance. 

2.  They involve the core as you must stabilize your body when performing the exercise.

3.  And lastly, they tone the arms and chest. 

My hope as always, is that by doing these bodyweight exercises is that you can "steal" them from me.  Meaning I want you to remember them and implement them on your own. 

Maybe you are traveling and don't have access to a can always do some bodyweight exercises.  

There is no excuse!
