Bodyweight training is one of the growing global trends in fitness. It's simple enough to explain - using your own body weight to improve your fitness and strength, and yoga and gymnastic practitioners have been doing this for years. But the theory behind it isn't often understood. Kesh Patel contextualises bodyweight training - where did it come from? What is Evolutionary Fitness? and looks at the theory behind it. Understand the basics of biomechanics and you can adapt and improve your bodyweight training programmes and improve your results. So find out about working with gravity, how skills acquisition works, how to develop posture and balance - all based on biomechanical principles. This book is packed with practical, clear and accessible exercise ideas, progressing from fundamental movement patterns to more advanced exercises, along with details of exercise programming - including adaptations for different skill levels, working with groups, and ideas to integrate bodyweight exercises into traditional weight training, circuit and bootcamp classes, to name but a few.
