Benefit # 1
There is no running involved whatsoever.
If you have been wondering how can I lose belly fat, then this is the perfect exercise for you. If you think you need to run to lose weight, then think again, especially if you are looking to get flatter and leaner abs. In fact, by increasing your muscle mass, your metabolism will also increase, and muscle will burn calories much more quickly than body fat, which in turn helps you to lose weight fast and also helps you to keep it off.
Benefit # 2
You are just using your own body weight against yourself, no pounding the streets running. No having to go to the gym and lift any weights. There is even no worry you will fall over as you are on the floor!
Benefit # 3
It is a good weight loss exercise especially if you are worried about back pain.
This form of exercise can help those with back pain or who have some other type of muscle pain to enhance the density of their bones.
This exercise can improve the overall health of your body, including your joints, it can also increase the power in adjacent muscles.
Not only can it be done by people who are not that fit, it is surprisingly done by those who are already very fit to begin with, such as athletes who are already in peak physical condition. This is because they do this form of exercise in order to be able to further increase their performance in their particular field. So if you think you won’t be able to do it, think again.

Benefit # 4
It can be done regardless of age as it is a great weight loss exercise that is easy on your joints.
This exercise consists of movements that are prolonged in their nature, perfect for the elderly as it can help improve coordination and balance, a much-needed skill, especially in the later years of a person’s life. It can also go a long way in preventing unnecessary falls, most essential, especially as this part of a person’s life can be really affected by the slightest fall which could lead to more serious complications.
It is also an exercise you can do at your own pace, make it as hard or as easy as you want and adjust the workout accordingly.
It can also help the elderly get a better range of motion in their body, helping them to be more independent and do tasks that they may typically ask someone else to do.
The exercise movements are significantly based on stretching and the more safely and efficiently you can learn to stretch, the more supple and flexible your body will become.
