It’s a misconception that fitness takes a gym membership or equipment. Try these body weight exercises that train your muscles and your heart!
They look strange, I know. But bear crawls are a dynamic move that gets your entire body in motion in a way it hasn’t done since, oh, since you were toddler.
Ok, there are those of you who had to get home from the pub the other night.
Despised, loathed, outright hated. But pull-ups are the Swiss knife of back exercises, training the back, shoulders, biceps and forearms. Which is why they’re a staple for anyone who takes his workouts seriously.
Because both train so many muscles, push-ups together with pull-ups are a complete upper body training.
Planks look boring, but you engage the entire core to stabilize the body.
If you want that more difficult, try the Spiderman. It’s done from a push-up position, but what you do is a lot of stabilizing with the ab muscles.
Jumping Jacks, Mountain Climbers and Burpees
Now let’s move to some cardio fitness that doesn’t require any equipment and can be done at home.
With a bit of rope, you can do some truly exhausting fitness.
Crunches are the #1 exercise to hit the ab muscles with. Just keep in mind they don’t magically make your gut go away.
For something very dynamic, box jumps are great. Start (literally!) small on this one!
These dips work the triceps, shoulders and a bit of the chest.
