Tips To Make Bodyweight Exercises Harder

How to make bodyweight exercises harder

I am a huge fan of bodyweight exercises not only because they can be done anywhere, but also because they are an effective way to improve flexibility, strength and balance. Bodyweight exercises are my personal number one choice for burning fat as high intensity bodyweight training has been proven to be an effective way to lose excess fat.

Now, what happens when your bodyweight exercises get to easy? Continue reading

Voxifit Bodyweight Workout No1

So 2013 is here and that means gyms are going to be packed. Yip today is the start of “NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS”. One of my new years resolutions is to carry on bringing you fitness motivation to help you start your fitness program as well as motivation to keep you going.

Also from today 1st of Jan 2013 i will start posting home workouts utilizing bodyweight. The workouts that i will be posting are the workouts that i use myself and with my clients.

I suggest that you use an interval timer for these workouts as it will make things much easier for you.

For Beginners

If your a beginner i suggest that you start with only the warm-up section and slowly start working towards the main section. When you feel you can move on from the warm-up then start with the main section, but go through the main section once only the first time you do it. You are also welcome to contact me for workout information by using my Contact me form.

How to use my bodyweight workouts

  1. Always start the workout with a full warm up. My warm ups are in circuit fashion. Each exercise should be performed for 20 seconds. DON’T go overboard on the warm ups. Keep your movements slow and controlled and perform as many reps as you can during the 20 seconds. Move through the warm up circuit and rest for 20 seconds at the end, then repeat the circuit 1 more time for a total of 2 sets.
  2. The main workout – VFIT Circuit – Each exercise should be performed for 50 seconds. Try and do as many reps as possible within the 50 seconds. There is a 5 second transition time between exercises. Make sure to keep proper form during each exercise. At the end of the VFIT circuit there is a 60 second rest, and then you will repeat the circuit again 2 more times for a total of 3 sets. Now, you can make this workout harder by not using the 60 second rest and instead use the 5 second transition time, and start from the beginning.

Enjoy and let me know how you are doing:)

New Years Resolutions

The new year is just around the corner and that means new years resolutions. The 3 new years resolutions i hear all the time are:

  1. I am going to start a diet
  2. I am going to start exercising
  3. I am going to stop smoking

Now, out those 3 which one  is achieved? ….NONE!. Do you agree or not?

Honestly it amazes me at how people “wait” for the right time to start a fitness program. It’s been said that as long as we are looking for an excuse we will always find one. In my experience, most people understand that starting a fitness program is  something they should do, however there always seems to be something getting in their way.

Here are the top 4 reasons for not working out, that i hear all of the time, and my replies when i hear them:

  1. Gym is expensive – My reply “It costs nothing to workout at home”.
  2. I’m too tired – My reply “Exercise is proven to boost energy levels and attitude”
  3. It’s boring – My reply “Well its a fact that if you don’t enjoy something you won’t stick with it. There are plenty of other activities you could do. Take up dancing, zumba, basketball, cycling etc.”
  4. I am too busy – My Reply ” Well it comes down to your goals and priorities. If you really really want to be fit and healthy then it has to become a priority. Only if you really want it will you make the time and effort. Schedule a workout time in your calendar and plan your days. Step out of your comfit zone and make it work for you”

If we are looking for excuses we will find them. Always. Stop looking for excuses and go get fit.

What ever new years resolution you have, start doing it today. Do it for yourself:)

Fitness Motivation Tip – Be Realistic

I am sure at some stage you have looked at an ad featuring a young, hard-bodied fitness model smiling and enjoying his/her workout and you’ve probably thought to yourself  “I’m going to do that and then i will quickly look like that”. Well banish that notion.

You have to be realistic about what it takes to get in shape. Working out is work and lots of it, and…… you have to do it over many months, not weeks.

Set realistic goals for yourself. Remember success comes with time and patients. YOU CAN DO IT!  “Rome was not built in a day”.

Have a great Wednesday, i am off for a long weekend away 🙂

Be positive and be realistic.
