Whether or not weight loss, or even weight gain, is your primary goal, keep in mind that bodyweight exercises have benefits that are far beyond just improving your appearance.

  1. Help Build and Maintain Lean Muscle Mass
  2. Improve Heart Health
  3. Reduce Risk for Diabetes
  4. Improve Your Mood and fights Depression
  5. Help Maintain Cognitive Function
  6. Improve Health of Joints and Bones

Cardio (aerobic) exercises definitely have their benefits, but building muscle is equally important and often overlooked. Bodyweight exercises are a type of strength training, which helps rebuild muscle wear and tear that develops as we age. Numerous studies show that building lean muscle mass is also great for your heart, blood vessels, lungs, hormone production and even brain activity.

Various studies link different forms of strength training to:

  • More lean muscle mass
  • Healthier blood cholesterol levels
  • Healthier blood pressure levels
  • Lower stress levels
  • Better sleep
  • More energy
  • Increased oxygen use by muscles
  • Reduced joint and bone pain
  • Removal of metabolic waste from muscles during resting periods
  • Increased insulin sensitivity
  • Increased resting metabolic rate
  • Reduced risk of stroke, acute coronary syndrome and overall cardiovascular mortality
