non weight exercises

#1 Postby bodyartt » Thu Jun 05, 2014 9:40 pm

I don't have access to gym atm, so relying on bodyweight exercise mostly. But suppose I join a gym later on, r there non weight workouts I can do .... Cable crossover, for instance, is not a bodyweight workout but it isnt a weight training one like bench press either. So r there other exercises for upper body that are neither bodywwight not weight lifting......

Things to make me go...Hmmmm????

Perplexed at your question differentiating weight exercises from non-weight but also non-bodyweight exercises?

A bit more info please. What are your goals or intended accomplishments? Not sure why to join a gym except to use lots of weight or cardio equipment you don't already have? You can do A LOT without the expense of a gym depending on your goals. Bodyweight is good start....dumbbells are pretty cheap, add in pull up bar and have at it...

So can't really help much without more info...

An EXCELLENT non-weight, non-bodyweight upper body workout is....(drumroll.......). Fighting. Boxing. Working the heavy bag. Activities that work your whole body, from your legs, through your core and can absolutely shred your chest/back/shoulders/arms.

Talking functional size, cut, and endurance exercise.

Something you can do at home with a bag, or without a bag but some weighted gloves to make up for the lack of a bag. The strike and quick retraction fires the push and pull muscles on either side of the motion, the impact delivers the strength-training 'pop' of the full muscle flow. Done properly it engages legs and core.

More on this if you're interested....
