Looking for a way to stay fit and healthy but don’t have access to a gym or equipment? Fear not, because there are plenty of bodyweight workouts you can do anywhere, anytime. Here are 10 of the best:
1. Push-ups: This classic exercise works your chest, triceps, and shoulders. Start in a plank position with your hands shoulder-width apart. Lower your body until your chest almost touches the ground, then push back up.
2. Squats: Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and your toes pointing slightly outward. Lower your body as if sitting back into a chair, keeping your chest up and your knees over your toes. Push back up to standing.
3. Lunges: Step forward with one foot and lower your body until your front knee is at a 90-degree angle. Push back up to standing and repeat on the other side.
4. Burpees: Start in a standing position, then quickly drop down into a plank position. Do a push-up, then jump your feet back to your hands and stand up, jumping into the air at the top.
5. Planks: Get into a push-up position, then lower yourself onto your elbows. Hold your body in a straight line, engaging your core muscles.
6. Mountain climbers: Get into a plank position, then alternate bringing your knees up to your chest as if running.
7. Jumping jacks: Stand with your feet together, then jump them apart while raising your arms overhead. Jump back to the starting position.
8. Wall sits: Lean your back against a wall and lower your body until your thighs are parallel to the ground. Hold for as long as you can.
9. Bicycle crunches: Lie on your back with your hands behind your head. Bring your left elbow to your right knee, then switch sides.
10. Jump squats: Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, then lower your body into a squat. Jump up as high as you can, then land softly and go back into a squat.
These bodyweight workouts are perfect for anyone who wants to stay fit and healthy, no matter where they are. And the best part? You don’t need any equipment, so there’s no excuse not to get moving!
