Basic Bodyweight Exercises
The 3 Basic Bodyweight Exercises that you need to be practicing every day are:
These basic foundation exercises are designed to build your full body strength, health, and fitness.
The Paleo Squat
By going into the full depth Paleo Squat daily you will help to actively stretch out your muscles which in turn takes pressure off of your joints.
The full depth position is especially great for spinal decompression, which is caused by bad posture, sitting and age. By simply performing this incredible exercise daily you can help to alleviate almost all of your muscle and joint pain!
Push-ups are a great way to improve our upper body strength!
It not only works your arms, shoulders, and chest but your entire body from head to toe as you have to maintain a strong body position during the entire exercise. This promotes core strength during movement as you build up your body’s stabilizers.
Just remember, keep everything straight from head to toe! No mountain or valley hips (hips raised high or hips dropped low).
Prone Cobra Exercise
Now, most people cannot do a Pull-Up, so we made a modification to accommodate everyone by replacing the Pull-Up exercise with a Prone Cobra Exercise.
The Prone Cobra is a Yoga Based Movement that works your entire posterior chain musculature helping to set our shoulders back in a better anatomical position while building core strength. This exercise works your entire back while stretching out our commonly tight chest and shoulder musculature, greatly improving our posture.
If you have bad posture, this is a great way to correct it!
All 3 of these exercises make up the Daily 30 Bodyweight Exercise Routine!
Every exercise in the Daily 30 can be tailored specifically to your current physical abilities.
We even have modified versions for those with injuries, disabilities or physical limitations; and they will still make you feel GREAT!!!
