No Gym No Problem

No Gym? No Problem! #2

You don’t need a bunch of gym equipment to get yourself into shape.  You don’t even need hand weights, all you need is your own body weight.  I love to use my own body weight for strength training!  I can tell you from personal experience that these 8 moves will help to build your strength!

Michele Olson, Ph.D., professor of exercise science at Auburn University Montgomery designed this simple 8 move program.  She suggests that if it is done 4 times a week for 6 weeks, you will see an increase in your overall strength.

Be sure to use good form when performing these moves!  Besides the lunges I love all of these moves! I seriously HATE lunges!
