Here’s a workout that builds strength, balance and flexibility — no fancy gym equipment required.
We’ve preached about the benefits of body weight training before — and we’re about to do it again. Body weight exercises are not only simple and convenient, but they’re also a great way to improve strength, balance and flexibility in one shot. Not to mention, you won’t even need to leave the house to get in a solid workout. “One of the best parts about body weight training is that you don’t need specialized equipment,” says Matt Basso, a personal trainer and president of the New York-based Iron Lotus Personal Training. “It’s a great way to exercise when you’re traveling, or even if you’re too busy to hit up the gym.”
