    Body weight work outs

    Shop Now
    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!

    Just out of curiosity what phase of YAYOG are you on. I just finished the beginner phase and it was brutal
