  • Body weight work outs

    Hey everyone. I was wondering if you good folk could point me at some resources for body-weight work outs. I'm looking to move away from using my weights do to my travel habits. I currently incorporate sit ups, push ups, pull ups, etc into my work out, but I was wondering if there is a good book or web resource that lays out body-weight exercises and the target muscle groups they hit.


    Thanks!

            As all above have already indicated! Great workouts... makes me wonder if the original Jack LaLane stuff is on youtube! I can't get to it from here otherwise I would have checked. I loved Jack as a kid, wish I would have learned back then!

                Second the Your Are Your Own Gym by Mark Lauren. I am sore once again after starting another cycle. And as I have said before on this forum this is coming from someone who has lifted heavy for over 25 years and current mountainbiking like a mutha!

                      The guy who runs rosstraining.com also has two books; The Ultimate Guide to Warrior Fitness and Never Gymless. Both great resources.

                        Well, i got the book, and started at 1st class after doing his little test to see where to start. It was definitely more of a work out than I have been doing with the weights. My goal is to be on the next level before the end of the year. ::crosses fingers::
