The Lunge, Pushups, and Warrior III pose are three of the most basic bodyweight exercises you can do at home. Still, almost 98% of new clients we see, don’t do them correctly. Here’s how they should be done.
All told there are probably about 100 bodyweight movements available to our coaches. More if you count variations of basic techniques (dive bomb pushup, triangle pushups.) If you pull yoga asanas into the definition of bodyweight training that number soars to the 1000s.
