Hello everyone, I hope you are all having a fantastic day. I just LOVE the feeling of being inspired. When I started blogging a few months ago, I thought I would run out of things to share and write about. However, the support I’ve been getting and the wonderful feedback I receive from doing this brings me more inspiration and the ideas just keep on flowing!!
I’ve discussed my favorite bodyweight exercises and my favorite machine-less leg exercises before, so I am now moving on to share my favorite chest exercises that require no machine. The reason why I keep sharing exercises that I enjoy without having the machine is pretty simple: I want you guys to grasp and understand that being fit is achievable outside the gym. You do not have to rely on big equipment and monthly payments to take care of your aesthetics. You can do it all from the comfort of your home. If I am not a good enough advocate of this for you, my forever fitspiration, Zuzka Light, is another testament and you guys can check her out here.
Growing up, I thought I was pretty flat chested. I was very physically active (walked a lot and was part of my High School’s Dance Troupe) but was also very skinny. I would be told occasionally that I was so skinny to the point that they thought I didn’t eat enough. However I have always been a foodie so I really did not understand it. I moved to Canada in 2008 and was only going to school. Since I lived in the country side, we had to ride the car almost anywhere we went. I stopped dancing and my sole hobby was sitting in front of the laptop whether to watch movies on Netflix, surf the net, or be on Facebook. Not to mention, our house was abundant with all the dangerously yummy treats like cookies, soda, ice cream, and cake. I gained about 20 pounds in a year and was the biggest I ever was. At this point in my life I was told I was fat–interestingly, by the same people who told me I was ‘too’ skinny. Either way, it did not feel good.

5. Clapping Push-ups – I love doing this exercise as a burnout after weight lifting (doing it until failure), or in between exercises! If you choose to do this between exercises, I suggest doing 5-10 🙂
Side note: I posted a FREE 1 week’s worth of stability ball workouts on my previous posts and was requested to make videos on it. I shot the videos and here is the CHEST and Shoulders workout:
