10 Best Bodyweight Exercises To Get You Ripped In No Time!

The Best Bodyweight Exercises To Get You Ripped

Let’s face it, getting ripped is as close to saying, “we will never have peace without war.” 

The saying should not be interpreted as political nor a radical campaign but something rather entirely different. The saying pertains to each and every one of us who has our own personal fitness goals.

“Peace” refers to our personal fitness goals and “War” refers to ourselves; the only entity that inhibits an individual in achieving his or her utmost potential in whatever chosen field is basically the same entity – IT’S YOU!

If we really want to achieve that perfect body, that Greek-godlike figure, that toned deliberately defined muscular physique, then we have to overcome ourselves from procrastination, partying too much, laziness, ignorance, and over eating.

Go out there and train! Push yourself and go beyond your comfort! And trust me, it doesn’t have to be that expensive!

Here are 10 Bodyweight Exercises you can do to get ripped in no time!

“In many cases, bodyweight is all you need to build muscle, burn fat and improve balance, flexibility and strength,” says William Garcia, CPT, at Arena Fitness in Northridge, California. “From your legs to your shoulders, every part of your physique can get bigger, leaner and stronger with body resistance movements alone.”

There are countless bodyweight exercises from which to choose — some good, others good for landing you in the emergency room. Garcia’s list contains practical and functional moves designed to safely get you stronger and ripped. And because no machines or weights are needed, you can pretty much do them anywhere, anytime. Just make sure you master the basic (A) move before giving the more challenging (B) version a try.

1. Push-Up

2. Knee-T-Opposite-Elbow Push-Up

Proper Form: Assume a push-up position with knuckles flat against the floor. Bring your right knee to your left elbow, and pause for a second before returning your leg to the start position. Do standard push-up, and repeat the movement with opposite leg and arm.
