Really, all you need are two things—your body and the knowledge of how to use it. No barbells, no dumbbells, no balls, no ankle weights, no machines, no infomercial equipment—just your body. By learning and using a plan that requires only your physiological barbells, you have all the tools you need to make exercise easy and automatic. That's because:
- Your body costs nothing to use.
- You eliminate the best excuses for avoiding exercise, like driving hassles or needing to buy equipment.
- Using only your body, you can work all of the muscles necessary for effective waist management—and that's for both beginning and advanced exercisers.
Note: When doing exercises with your own body weight feels too easy, you can add resistance by holding dumbbells or milk jugs filled with pebbles, sand, or water, or using other household products (like soup cans).Also, you can add a balance to almost any exercise by tweaking it slightly—try doing two-legged exercises on one leg, or do an exercise lying on a stability ball instead of a bench.
