Street workout- why you should try it out

Updated on June 6, 2014

What is street workout?

Street workout is an outdoor exercising. Using no gym equipment, weights and ect. The only thing you need is your own body to perform body-weight exercises.

Right now world is going crazy about it. People all around the world is doing it and the numbers of street athletes is constantly growing. Youtube is full of videos about street workout and those videos are very entertaining and motivating. It is very popular among young generation because it is completely free, it promotes healthy living and socializing and a desirable physique can be attained with it.

The creativity

When you are doing street workout you are not binded by basic exercises like you do in the gym. You don't need to do monotonic actions. Of-course there are some basic moves that you should perform before advancing further.

A typical street workout routine often consists of exercises such as pull-ups, chin-ups, push-ups, dips, muscle-ups, sit-ups, crunches and squats. After that you can try some awesome looking exercises like: static (isometric) holds such as the human flag, front lever, back lever and planche.

When you fell comfortable with your body weight you can go for a full control of your muscles and perform insane exercises which makes you look like ''superhuman''.

It is all about you and what you want to do with your body. Many of the exercises in street workout are created by other athletes.

The freedom

While street work-outing you don't need to go to any special place. You can just simply do it at the street that's why it's called street workout. Every day objects can become your training machines.

You don't need to pay for a membership like you do in the gym. Everyone is free to join. No personal trainers needed there because you learn everything by yourself or some friendly guys will help you for sure if you don't know something.

You can workout as much as you want. Some motivated guys spends many hours doing street workout. For them it is not only sport or some-kind of training routine it is their lifestyle.

No age requirements

Street workout is a different branch of sport because there's no age limit. It does not matter if you are 10 years old or 60 years old.

Doing your body weight exercises does not harm your wrists, knees and shoulders it is way more healthy the lifting extreme heavy weights. And you don't need to spend many money on food supplements and most important no god damned steroids are used by any athlete. Thing are way more natural then building muscle in the gym.

Because of that people from every age group are free to get involved with this sport. It is even more beneficial for older people to start because their muscles will wake up and they can fell young again.

But there's no need for elders to push themselves with all the fancy exercises, they just need to keep with basics like push-ups, chin-ups, pull-ups, dips and all other basic exercises.

The difference between bodybuilding

Many people thinks that street workout is the same as bodybuilding. They are terribly wrong. These to sport branches differs from each other in almost every aspect. The only common thing between bodybuilding and street workout is that they both makes you strong and more good looking. But the very basis is very different.

For example performing bodybuilding you just focus on your muscle growth. First of all what you want to build a lot of mass. Then develop your muscles by lifting heavy objects. While bodybuilding you will look bigger way faster then doing street workout. But you need to take tons of food supplements get on a strict diet and workout routine. You will be strong, but you won't be able to perform body weight exercises. Bodybuilding is not very good for your health. But do it smart and careful and you should be able to stay healthy.

While doing street workout your main goal is to attain the full control of your body muscles. You don't need to take food supplements and build mass. The muscle mass will come naturally it will be a slower process then doing bodybuilding but the muscle you gain will be totally controlled by you and you will be able to perform harder and harder exercises.

The main difference between bodybuilding and street workout is that street workout out if way more natural and does not require any weight lifting.
