My friend, Coach & Mentor, former Navy SEAL, Brad McLeod, asked me to crush a video for his friends on the best Bodyweight Bodybuilding exercises.
Below is the video and also a list of The Top 11 Bodyweight Exercises along with added variations, regressions & progressions. Adding the many variations to each of these bodyweight exercises makes this more like a top 15 or top 20 list of Bodyweight exercises.
Bookmark this page and USE these exercises.
They are POWERFUL!
If you feel I left any bodyweight exercises off the list, please drop a comment and add them.
Also, BIG thanks to Lee Wade Turner & Lil' BEAST.
These Bros inspired me to take my own Bodyweight training to the next level. As well as Louie Simmons, always sharing how he uses the conjugate method with his powerlifters and various athletes at Westside Barbell inspired me to find a way to use the conjugate method with Bodyweight Bodybuilding.
