Before further proceeding, in a single sentence, Bodyweight exercises are those freehand exercises that do not incorporate with any gym and fitness equipment, instead utilise one’s own body mass to build up his muscles and packs. Along with building muscles, Bodyweight Workouts are praised since years for its strengthening sake. Now, let’s find out whether this belief has truly any strong scientific basis or not.
