Bodyweight Exercises You Can Do Anywhere

Two women exercising together set against a black background. They are on their knees with one lef stretched out behind them and the opposite arm stretched out in front of them.

Have you ever had a hard time doing your work outs on a daily basis? Thinking how to get fit, where to go and what is the best place to do your exercise everyday? We have a few tips here that we find it amusing to share to all our folks out there, on how to be fit anywhere you want.

From legs and shoulders to chest and abs, we’ve covered every part of the body that can get stronger with body resistance alone.

Inchworm: Stand up tall with the legs straight, and do like Lil’ Jon and let those fingertips hit the floor. Keeping the legs straight (but not locked!), slowly lower the torso toward the floor, and then walk the hands forward. Once in a push-up position, start taking tiny steps so the feet meet the hands. Continue bugging out for 4-6 reps.

Tuck Jump: Standing with the knees slightly bent, jump up as high as possible (pretend Jeremy Lin is watching!) and bring the knees in toward the chest while extending the arms straight out. Land with the knees slightly bent and quickly jump (on it) again!

Bear Crawl: Embrace that inner grizzly. Starting on the hands and knees, rise up onto the toes, tighten the core, and slowly reach forward with the right arm and right knee, followed by the left side. Continue the crawl for 8-10 reps (or until you scare your roommates off)

 Plyometric Push-Up: Ready to catch some air? Start on a well-padded surface and complete a traditional push-up. Then, in an explosive motion, push up hard enough to come off the floor (and hang ten for a second!). Once back on solid ground, immediately head into the next repetition.

Stair Climb with Bicep Curl: Turn those stairs into a cardio machine — no magic wand necessary. Grab some dumbbells (or household objects!) and briskly walk up and down the stairway while simultaneously doing bicep curls to work the whole body.

Following the tips above is never that hard and the best part is you can do it even just in your backyard!
