What’s the benefit of doing a home bodyweight workout?

According to the American College of Sports Medicine, bodyweight training is one of the top 10 trends for fitness professionals in 2020. That’s right, it’s back to basics! I think a common misconception about bodyweight moves is that they can’t function as strength moves — but with the proper form and intention, they can.

In fact, Mayo Clinic has found that a bodyweight workout can be an effective form of strength training, and is a good addition to fitness programs.
