Improve Your Muscle Fitness
with Bodyweight Exercises
Body weight exercises are an excellent way to improve your muscle fitness. The main advantages are that no equipment is required and you can do them pretty much anywhere. All you need is your body and gravity. Both should be reasonably priced.
These exercises are a great way to get in shape before you begin a weight training program. Or you can augment other training programs with Calisthenics.
Body weight exercises include push ups, sit ups, squats, pull ups, crunches etc. Pretty much everything they made you do in PE.

Advanced participants also do handstand push ups, one arm push ups, one legged squats, and weighted pull ups.
To increase muscle mass and endurance you must increase the load and volume of the exercise. Using push-ups as an example, you can change hand position, elevate your feet, increase reps, add sets or increase time under tension. You can even wear a weight vest or use only one arm.
