When most people try to lose weight, they pop in some sort of aerobics tape such Tae Bo or one of those dancing tapes. That’s not too bad. I mean, at least you’re moving your body.
But what you really need to be doing is strength training. You don’t need to go out to a gym and start lifting heavy weights. You can do it in the comfort of your own home with your own bodyweight.
Now, I know what you’re thinking: “but I can’t do pushups, pullups, and squats.” That’s fine, don’t’ do them. But their is an entire slew of other very basic, simple bodyweight exercises you can perform in the comfort of your own home.
Bodyweight Training for Obese People
One of the biggest qualities of bodyweight training, aside from it’s fat burning benefits, is the fact that it teaches you body control. Mobility is the ability to move, and is one of the most important things in daily life.

It’s no surprise that these individuals are extremely athletic. Gymnasts, dancers, and people who practice Yoga don’t necessarily train for fat loss.
Instead, they train for movement. That is exactly what you need to focus your energy on.
Solving the Movement Problem
There are three ways you can move better and hence start losing fat. Each of these three methods are performed at different levels of intensity, but are still extremely vital in your long term progress.
Method One: Low Intensity training with Mobility Drills
The goal of mobility drills is to get you to move better. It does this by stretching and strengthening your joints through a variety of movements. Mobility drills are important for all fitness levels, and will help you get your body warmed up to higher intensity training.
Method Two: Medium Intensity training with Prasara Yoga
Prasara Yoga is the next step up. It teaches you how to easily “flow” from one position to the next. This is a low-impact form of exercise, but it can also be extremely difficult as the postures get more and more complex.
Method Three: High Intensity training with Bodyweight Movements
In the next page you will learn how to improve your mobility to help you finally lose fat and keep it off using the perfect blend of all three methods mentioned in this post…
