We all have different goals as we age, but if one of your goals is to build functional strength and stability, bodyweight exercises are a great place to start. Bodyweight exercises work multiple muscle groups which makes bodyweight weight training a very efficient way to build functional strength, which is the type of strength needed to perform everyday movements with ease.
Bodyweight exercises are extremely convenient as well. All you need is your body, a little space around you, and maybe a chair, wall, or table.
Below are 5 good options for bodyweight exercises. Remember, do what you can. If you only want to do 2 or 3 exercises, that’s fine! Doing something is better than doing nothing at all.
- Glute Bridge
- Modified Push-Up
- Step up
- Bird Dog
