I love using body weight exercises in any training program. But body weight exercises don’t have to stay body weight exercises forever. They can eventually be progressed to adding some sort of external resistance whether it’s dumbbells, a barbell or may be even an X-Vest. In the following video you’ll see me demonstrating a single leg squat with some external resistance, a pair of dumbbells and an X-Vest.
You’ll also realize why I’m always working out with my IPod on if you happened to catch Boyz II Men playing in the background in that video. Very hard to get motivated by “End of the Road”.
