The theme this week? MY BODY IS MY EQUIPMENT! Looking recently at some improvements I’ve seen with my own weight loss/fitness journey I have to say I’m super happy! I have seen myself utilize food as fuel better with more muscle definition (not necessarily weight loss) as well as a better fit on my clothes – always the best determining factor with results!

My legs were always my “Bug-a-boo!” I feel that with lots of PiYo and Insanity classes they’re responded to the strengthening and lengthening of those workouts without ANY weight added in!

I’m a big believer in exuding the utmost confidence because we should all be proud of our hard work and feel like we’re being our best selves!

Ready to wear ‘normal clothes’ and go out with friends!

 

I am NOT saying that adding in weight will cause you to NOT hit your goals or that I don’t enjoy lifting! I add in weights when I teach P90X LIVE and enjoy the challenge – I just want people to understand that you can LIFT YOUR OWN BODY WEIGHT and focus on form and technique controlling yourself and STILL SEE results!

 

I also think it’s part of making sure I get my workout in NO MATTER WHAT – whether I have weights around or my own two feet, I make it work!

 

 

Have you experimented with using your own body weight for strength and crosstraining workouts?

What is your favorite body weight workout?
