Anytime, Anywhere

Bodyweight exercises you can do wherever you are.

Over the years, you’ve probably come up with a lot of excuses to skip your workout. You’re too busy. You don’t have time to go to the gym. You don’t have the right equipment. And the list goes on. With bodyweight exercises, you have no more excuses. They’re simple, free, no special equipment is required, and they can be done anywhere, anytime. Whether you’re on vacation, at the office, or stuck at home, bodyweight exercises provide the perfect way to get an effective, full-body workout on days you can’t make it to the gym.

Bodyweight exercises build strength, increase flexibility, and burn calories by working against your own body weight for resistance. While there are dozens of bodyweight exercises to choose from, here are a few of the most popular and effective to get you started.

Push-Ups

Push-ups are a gold standard bodyweight exercise. They work your back, shoulders, chest, core, and triceps. With many variations of the exercise, you can make it easier, harder, or work various muscle groups. When in the high plank position with hands beneath your shoulders and feet together, bend your arms and lower your body toward the floor until your chest is an inch off the floor. Hold for a second, and then raise your body back up.

Lunges

Lunges and squats are two of the best bodyweight exercises for a complete lower-body workout, as they work your glutes, hamstrings, quads, and calves. For a lunge, take a big step forward with one foot. Bend both knees and drop your back knee toward the ground. Bend your front knee, making sure it doesn’t pass in front of your toes. When your front knee reaches a 90-degree angle, push off with your front foot and return to standing. Now, lunge forward on the other foot.

Squats

A bodyweight exercise routine isn’t complete without squats to work your legs. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, bend your knees, and lower your hips back as if to sit in a chair. Make sure your knees don’t pass in front of your toes. Squat to a comfortable height or until your thighs are parallel to the floor. Return to standing. Repeat.

Plank

Planks are a popular go-to core bodyweight exercise. Variations are available, depending on your fitness level and fitness goals. For the basic high plank, get on all fours on the floor. Place your hands on the floor directly below your shoulders and extend your legs so your body is in a straight line from head to heels. Hold your body up on your palms and toes for 15 to 30 seconds. Rest and repeat. Increase the amount of time you hold the plank as you grow stronger.

Burpees

Burpees add a cardio component to a bodyweight workout. They’re also challenging, making them many people’s least favorite exercise. In essence, burpees combine push-ups and squats. From standing, squat down and place your hands on the floor in front of you. Then, kick your feet behind you so you’re in a push-up position. Do a push-up, and then pull your feet back toward your hands. Jump up and reach your hands above your head. Repeat.

Mountain Climbers

Mountain climbers are a great bodyweight exercise to get your heart pumping and work your entire body. Your legs do the movement, but your upper body keeps you stable. In a plank position, bring your left knee up toward your chest as far as you’re able. Then, straighten your leg, putting your foot back on the ground. Immediately afterward, bring your right knee up toward your chest and then straighten your leg, returning your right foot to the ground. Continue alternating legs as fast as you can.
