Love it or hate, Instagram is a huge social media platform and is the go-to space for most people when they want to post about their latest fitness achievement.

For many though, Instagram is a source of inspiration.

Whilst one of the core principles of Fit for Everywhere is that oiled-up fitness influencers should be taken with a grain of salt, they also have their place.

They’ve worked hard to achieve their following and their physiques.

And that hard work can serve as inspiration and, in turn, motivation for others.

With this in mind I’ve lined up the 5 best bodyweight training accounts you should consider following on Instagram.

These men and women should help inspire you to get moving, when you’re seeking a motivation boost.

 

Six of the Top Bodyweight Fitness Accounts to Follow on Instagram

 

1. KAISA KERANEN

Kaisa is a former athletics competitor, and she does a great job of showcasing innovative workout time and time again. She’s super-resourceful and will use everything from pillows to soup cans as training equipment.

She is also big on Q&As and discussion topics – great for filling spare 5 minutes.

2. GIDEON AKANDE

Gideon, a former Golden Gloves champion is all about versatile training techniques. His workouts are high energy, fun, and effective. Give one of his workouts a go and you might find you’re totally hooked!

 

3. DYLAN WERNER

If you’re looking to improve your overall mobility, this one’s for you. His gravity-defying moves will inspire you to get practicing those yoga moves. He’s probably not one you’ll be following along with anytime soon (his moves are literally mind-blowing), but his stability, flexibility and core strength is something to behold.

How do we teach how to show love? How did we learn how to love? Love is an experience as unique to us as our fingerprint. Love is also something that we talk about and share as though we all are experiencing it the same way, but the truth is many people don’t know how to show love and don’t understand what it feels like to be loved. Maybe your parents showed you compassion when you were in pain as a child; perhaps they told you that they would give you something to cry about if you didn’t stop crying. We are a product of our environment, but our actions and outlook are also a result of how we choose to respond to our experiences. We have a choice to perpetuate the pain we’ve known or create healing by sharing our love and compassion. Inflicting pain only propagates more suffering. Yet as we observe the world, the overwhelming response is to spread more pain, more hate, and create greater divisions. We can love in disagreement. Leaders like Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King Jr., and Desmond Tutu, to name a few, have already shown us how to love those who only know hate. Fear is not love; separation is not love; pain is not love; suffering is not love; nasty comments are not love; sarcasm is not love. Hate is not love. Show those who have only known pain and suffering that more pain will only create more suffering. As we unite and take action, we do it with love and compassion. Wearing @aloyoga (New Color Drop!)

This week I am sharing 5 advanced pistol squats you might not have tried. Make sure you can do regular pistol squats proficiently before you try any of these exercises.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣ ⁣⁣ 3️⃣ Pistol Squat + Hip Mobility AND Trick⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Coaching Tips (see blog post for full tips):⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣ Set up several rolls of toilet paper (or another object) on the outside of your non-working leg. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣ Hold a roll of toilet paper on your foot. You will need to dorsiflex your foot (point your foot towards you) to keep the roll in place. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣ ⁣⁣ Stand on one foot, and have a slight bend in your knee. As for the non-working leg, extend your knee, contract your quads, and plantarflex your foot (point it away from you).⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣ ⁣⁣ Form a tripod base by placing your weight on the back portion of your foot, and the base of your big and baby toes. ⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣Extend both of your arms.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣ ⁣⁣ Before each rep, take a deep breath in (360 degrees of air around your spine), and brace your core (360 degree brace around your spine).⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣ ⁣⁣ Perform a pistol squat. Once you hit a range where you are able to maintain proper form, pause in the bottom position. Then lift your leg laterally over the rolls, and then back to the bottom position. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣ Then press away from the floor and return to the starting position.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣ Optional: Once you are in the top position, you can flip the roll to your hands. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣For the duration of the exercise, do not allow your lower back to hyperextend, excessively round, or flex laterally, ribcage to flare, or torso, spine, or hips to rotate.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣ ⁣⁣ #pistolsquat #pistolsquats #stabilitytraining #mobilitywork #anklemobility #hipmobility #bodyweightworkout #bodyweightexercises #bodyweighttraining #playgroundworkout #hipstrength #hipflexors #stronghips #balancetraining #quarantineworkout #quarantineworkouts #quadworkout #quadworkouts #glutework #gluteworkout #glutegains #glutebuilding

5. CURTIS WILLIAMS

An ex-NFL player, Curtis continues to inspire others with his functional bodyweight workouts. He’s serious about high-intensity bodyweight exercises and, just like Fit for Everywhere, he is adamant that you don’t need a gym membership get in shape.

Curtis generally doesn’t provide full workout routines, but you can rustle up your own circuit using of his posts. Alternatively, learn how to create your own bodyweight training programs here.

 

 

6. KIRA STOKES

Kira is all about the workouts. Just scroll through her posts to quickly find a workout you can do pretty much anywhere. She’s particularly good at giving clear instruction through the notes for her posts. Which is always helpful!

CARDIO BLAST – throwback to a wonderfully hot, sweaty day in Hilton Head last summer💛(fishing pole not mine btw). REMEMBER – high intensity cardio intervals don’t have to be complicated…move your body, challenge your heart (it’s a muscle after all) and let those endorphins fly! ⭐️I added 3 min of jumping rope each successive time through the circuit (watch until end). You can totally perform the circuit without the jump rope interval. BUT – a few tips on why jumping rope is incredible below. #KSFAPP athletes – this is a great circuit to add to any of the “Jump & Burn” offerings on the app or “Cardio Blast”. GOOD NEWS – another “Jump & Band Burn” coming your way when bands are back in stock 🔹Move 1 – lateral/high knee 30 seconds 🔹Move 2 – lateral squat hop 30 seconds 🔹Move 3 – butt kicks 30 seconds 🔹Move 4 – jacks w/arms 30 seconds 🔹Jump Rope 3 min Entire Circuit 4X through ⭐️My jump rope travels EVERYWHERE with me and ensures I always have the ability to get a serious cardio workout in no matter what the circumstance or setting 🔹a minute of jumping rope where you clear the rope 80 times a minute is like running about an 8 minute mile pace. It’s a great calorie burner! 🔹you only need to jump about an inch off the ground. Be kind to your joints (knees), land lightly to use your knees as a spring to absorb shock. Practice makes nearly perfect and permanent – very few people are incredible jumpers the first few attempts but if you stick with it, it’s a skill that will be your’s forever. Be patient with your body 🔹it’s all in the wrists – very little movement above your elbows 🔹do not jump into your back – maintain a neutral pelvis, even a slight tuck to the tailbone so your core is engaged. Refrain from jumping into an unnatural lordosis to your spine or arch to your back 🔹not only is jumping rope a fantastic cardio workout, it tones your shoulders, arms, calves and core /abs (you must keep them engaged). It also works on agility, coordination, mind/body connection to name just a few more reasons to rule the rope 🔹one of the jump ropes I prefer is the pro-vinyl speed rope sold on @powersystems . I use the 9′ rope and I’m 5’5″ (I like my rope on the long side)

Final word

The achievements and commitment of these fitness influencers is impressive. Just scrolling through their posts few a few swipes of the thumb brings oodles of sweat-inducing inspiration.

Of course, inspiration will only get you so far, and following along with generic Instagram workouts is neither that practical nor specific to you.

Nothing can rival the results you can get from tailoring your bodyweight workouts to meet your needs, aspirations and overall fitness goals.
