Here’s a simple and versatile bodyweight workout routine you can do anywhere:
Start with a 5-10 minute warm-up to get your heart rate up and prepare your muscles for exercise. You can do jumping jacks, jogging in place, or some dynamic stretches.
Perform these exercises in a circuit format, doing each one for a set amount of repetitions or time, and then moving to the next without resting in between. Once you’ve completed all the exercises, take a short rest (30-60 seconds) and repeat the circuit 2-3 times.
Target your chest, shoulders, and triceps. If regular push-ups are too challenging, you can start with knee push-ups or incline push-ups against a sturdy surface like a table or wall.
Focus on your legs and glutes. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and perform squats by lowering your hips back and down as if you’re sitting in a chair. Keep your chest up and your knees in line with your toes.
Work your legs and glutes. Take a step forward with one foot and lower your body until both knees are bent at a 90-degree angle. Alternate legs with each repetition.
Strengthen your core by holding a plank position on your elbows and toes. Keep your body in a straight line from head to heels and engage your core muscles.
A full-body exercise that combines a squat, push-up, and jump. Start in a standing position, squat down, kick your feet back into a plank, perform a push-up, jump your feet back to the squat position, and then explosively jump up.
To add cardio into your workout, you can incorporate activities like high knees, mountain climbers, or running in place. Perform these for 1-2 minutes between each circuit or at the end of your workout to elevate your heart rate.
Finish your workout with a 5-10 minute cool-down, which can include static stretching to help improve flexibility and reduce muscle soreness. Focus on stretching the major muscle groups you worked during your workout.
