These are the perfect exercises to incorporate into your routine NOW!

Warning: This is intense!

Professional gymnastics coach Christopher Sommers uses body-weight training to build passive and active flexibility and both static and dynamic strength in his athletes. According to Sommers, body-weight training can yield greater strength gains than training with free weights. He states: “The harder the contraction over a greater part of the body during an exercise, the more effective the exercise…One main advantage of these advanced body-weight exercises is that they require a complete full body contraction. In fact, at advanced levels, there is simply no other way to complete them.”
