We're going to combine both strength and conditioningto cover each of these 8 exercises. And guess whaté
We're going to cover your whole body too andthe only piece of equipment that you'll need to manipulate your own bodyweight for a fewof the exercises is a single Pullup Bar. Guys if you don't have one already, investin one. 10 to 15 bucks is well worth your development here. So let's get it started. The 8 Best BodyweightExercises you can do. Alright let's kick this list off the rightway, with the old classic Pull Up. There's no way that we can get through an8 Best Exercises list without including this one
because it simply is one of the best thingsyou can do for your upper body and it is a great Bodyweight option. Now let's say you are not getting enough outof a Pull Up. Or you're looking for something more advanced or more difficult, we can involve more muscles in the exerciseby simply switching our grip. And the thing here guys you will see, thecommon theme with all these exercises is there are certainly ways to modify to make these exercises more of a regressionto make them easier or make them a progression
to make them harder. And being able to master that is the key. Because you never want to get stagnant withany of your upper body exercises or any of your Bodyweight exercises period. So here if I switch my grip up to what wecall the Commando Pull Up. Now I've got a Core involvement because mybody wants to twist in one side as soon as you take this over under grip. You can't let that happen.
We're going to let our Core kick in and actuallyhelp us to stay stable while we Pull Up to each side of the bar. Of course a little bit extra Forearm involvementhere, a little bit of Biceps, never a bad thing here when we're trying to Amp Up theintensity of the exercise. Let's stick with that theme though, as wemove to number 2. Let's get those Biceps a little bit more involved. And of course let's get that Core a littlebit more involved too just by flipping the grip all the way over to what we call a ChinUp Knee Up.
And you can see as I do this exercise, it'stwo parts. The first part is getting my head up over that bar through a natural Chin Up. Which we know that positioning will work ourBiceps a lot more than it would in a normal Pull Up positioning. And of course, let's involve those Abs aswell by finishing with the Knee Up. Guys a great way to get more out of your BodyweightExercises and Training is to put more in them. And you can see this exercise gives us thatopportunity. Add a few more muscle groups, make the movementa little bit more complex but you're going

GYM MUSCLE GAIN BODY TRANSFORMATION CAPTAIN AMERICA WITH FREELETICS GYM
Hi, my name's Julian, I'm 26 years old and currently a student. My whole life I've had problems gaining weight, maintaining my bodyweight or gaining muscle in general. I've always been very skinny but also always had the dream of gaining weight, being stronger and having a good physique. I went to the gym for a while, quite regularly. But this didn't change anything and left me pretty frustrated. About half a year ago I went travelling around the world.
During this time I realized how out of shape my body got from not doing any sports or exercising. This showed in how super skinny and gaunt I became. Freeletics Gym is a free app that creates you a personalized training plan every week. It guides you through every training session and teaches you all the movements. This was perfect for me as I didn't have any experience with barbell training. It adapts to your goals and experience and programs the training accordingly. Check the description for a free link.
I've been training with Freeletics Gym for the last 18 weeks now. The first couple of weeks I focused on learning the exercises but soon after I was able to increase my weights on a weekly basis. I have become stronger than I ever could have imagined especially since I went to the gym for years before and never saw a real change. Don't forget to like and share the tutorial :).
