Health & Fitness Trivia – Weds Sept 5th 2012

Whether you have a gym membership or you exercise outside/at home, body weight exercises  can be done anywhere. These are not only beneficial for strength-training but also fat-burning due to the large percentage of muscles used.

I believe, one who does practice body weight exercises possesses more functional strength and also has a better athletic physique and profile than one who does not.

An exercise that many ‘gym go-ers’ avoid is push ups. Usually because they are “hard.” However, true strength comes from within, not from a dumbbell. Put it this way, when doing push ups, you are pushing approximately ___% of your body weight.

a) 25

b) 40

c) 60: You are pushing about 60-65% of your body weight!

d) 85
