Building Muscle Without Weights

Many men and women are trying to get in shape and tone up their bodies. Naturally a major part of this is eating right and adopting a fitness regimen that is suitable for you and what you wish to accomplish. What many individuals do not realize is that you can begin building muscle without weights. Although weight lifting, whether it is with free weights or machines, is a great way to build lean muscle mass, there are alternative ways to pack on a little extra muscle.

One of the most common approaches to building muscle without weights is calisthenics. Both men and women embrace these practices in order to tone up their bodies and/or build some real muscle mass. Now, in order to get started, you should first understand what calisthenics are. If you do not already know, these are essentially exercises that incorporate resistance. By imposing resistance on your muscles, you cause them to work harder and tear to some degree. This is turn causes them to heal larger than they were before. Put simply, this is building muscle without weights.

At this point, we should go over several of the basic muscle building exercises that do not involve weights. Some of these calisthenics are push ups, crunches, dips, leg raises, sit ups, calf raises, air squats, and pull ups. Generally the most difficult of all these exercises is pull ups. If you do not work out and are not used to doing pull ups, do not expect to just start reeling them off like they are no big thing. The reality is that you may not even be able to do one, but that is okay and totally normal. Pull ups work the lateral muscles under your arms. So basically that muscle has to be able to lift your entire body. Well, along with your back and shoulder muscles anyway.

The key with building muscle without weights is routine. You must adopt a routine or regimen and beef it up as time moves forward. This means if you begin doing pull ups for your lats, push ups for your chest and shoulders, sit ups for your abdominals, and dips for your triceps, you need to increase the number of reps as you are able to accomplish more. This only makes sense when trying to start building muscle without weights. Even weight lifters increase the amount of weight they use, as well as the number of reps. In the end, the key is to be consistent and really challenge your muscles. By mixing things up and putting strain on your different muscle groups, you can really begin to build lean muscle mass, but without utilizing free weights and weight lifting machines.
