I use a good mixture of both. Body weight workouts are typically more convenient for many.

I still do pull ups/chin ups/inverted rows/push ups/etc but I use weights for presses, rows, and particularly for my leg work outs.

Not everyone can afford the gym fees or time to go to the gym or to buy the equipment for their home. So body weight exercises are a way to get fit and work on with limited time and resources. Thus its a more common thing to find at a place that tends to put forward resources that do not cost you a dime.

Plus, members here have vastly different exercise needs based on their current fitness, age, pre-existing conditions or ailments, and body-weight exercises are a good way to minimize the risk for injury.

P.S. If you like the whole fiction thing, Jedi fitness as displayed in the movies would most likely resemble training in gymnastics, where body-weight is king.

I've been known to pick up the heavy things (and put them down again, when I forget why I picked them up)

It's never really had any relation to, uhh...jedi training, and TotJO was never going to be a strong source of discussion on the subject (much like recipes :P )

Bodyweight has advantages with accessibility, and the fact you can do anywhere, and generally for free, which suits some of the uh style of a lot of folks around the place.

You can get a weight bench for less than a hundred at wal mart or off of amazon. You can go to a used sporting goods store like play-it-again sports and buy miscellaneous items like an ez curl bar for maybe 10 or 15 bucks and iron weight plates for like 60 cents a lb. Dumbbells are pretty cheap too. Heck, you can get a weight plate and a rope or a belt and thats a dumbbell too.
Push really comes to shove, you can fill a garbage bag with sand or water and put it into a pillow case or a bedsheet or something. Can buy a bag of cement mix, a couple buckets and some closet rods or even rebar lol. Go chop down a tree in the woods and lift that sonofabitch for reps lol.
Theres really no excuse for anyone over 14 to not have some kind of weights if they want them tbh. If you arent interested in wieghts thats fine, but im not impressed with "i wish i could lift weights but i just cant afford it" ... youre playing video games arent you? Buying cigarrettes or booze or coffee or fast food or net-flix every week or month, im pretty sure you could get some weights if you made it a real priority. Two years of lifting weights is a FOOKUVALOT better investement than two years of netflix or x-box: youll be proud of yourself for the weights: stronger and more capable, maybe a little bit dangerous, and other people might even be able to see the results when they look at you.

Haha, you really don't want to argue with poor people, or try to tell them what their priorities should be.

(not that I disagree with you, old chum)



as for

Tell the people of Tamriel that. If I hadn't taken the time to protect them from Dagoth Ur, and Mehrunes Dagon, and Aldruin - well, who knows what could have happened to them?

It's part of being a Jedi or something, thinking of others ;)


(also, you can't work out all the time. Recovery is just as important.)


(I've got a vested interest in keeping the world unfit. They spend more on comfort items, and it keeps the bar low for being able to say you're "above average"

If everyone could do muscle-ups, what would be the point? :woohoo: :silly: )

I lift twice a week with the random collection of free weights bought used between me an my roommate. I still follow a basic program that was taught to me in high school for American Football just scaled down. It is called BFS system here I am not sure if it is a normal system out-side of the school district. On that note I will grab a card from the weight room on Monday or Tuesday and throw the whole work out up here. It's a balanced lifting program strength and agility are both worked on in each work out.

Your head will collapse. If there's nothing in it. And you'll ask yourself. Where is my mind?
