Bodyweight Strength Training

So, you want to start a strength training routine but are waiting to purchase a set of weights? Why not consider using your own body weight for resistance to work your muscles? You can strengthen your arms with chair dips, your legs by getting up from a sitting position, or strengthen your abdominals by doing sit-ups. These might not work for bodybuilders, but they certainly are sufficient for most of us.

PositiveTip: Begin strength training with what you already own! Check out trustworthy websites like NIH Senior Health and the American Council on Exercise.
