Body Weight Exercises with Pamela Hernandez

Here at Springfield FitLife we're all about simplifying fitness, so you can do it whenever, and wherever you want to. Our good friend Pamela Hernandez at Thrive Personal Fitness wrote a fantastic article about body weight exercises that we think can help a lot! Read an excerpt from the article "5 Bodyweight Exercises To Help You Become A Morning Exerciser" below!

“Isn’t it amazing how much better you feel when you start the day with a workout? On the days you can roll out of bed, drink a quick shot of matcha and work up a sweat you feel like a rockstar! It’s so much easier to hop on the treadmill at home instead of trying to make the 6 pm HIIT class at the gym. Your big challenge is putting together a strength training workout at home. It is so much easier to exercise in the morning when you do it at home but you aren’t sure what the best bodyweight home exercises are.

It doesn’t matter if your main reason for not doing strength training at home is time or equipment, you can get a great workout with bodyweight exercises at home. 


Bodyweight exercises can actually be some of the most effective exercises you do. After all, if you can’t move your own body with good form how do expect to lift heavy dumbbells? Since you already “own” the equipment they can be done anywhere and anytime."
