Not all of us feel safe heading back to the gym quite yet but want to keep our fitness level on point. Using only your own body weight, these versatile moves can help you create a mini, full-body at-home workout without a single piece of workout equipment. Just by using the weight of your body and the power of gravity, you can build muscle and burn fat. For a more intense, sweat-inducing session, plan to do three sets of all seven exercises with 1 minute of high knee, in place running or jumping jacks in between exercises.  Get it, girl!! 

 

Front Plank: 
Lay on your stomach, and raise to your elbows and toes.  Keep your body as tight and straight as possible.  It’s best to look in a mirror so you can make sure your body is straight and your rear end isn’t raised.  Hold for a minute if you can then relax and repeat! 

 

Reverse Lunges: 

Stand with feet shoulder width apart. Step back with your left foot, landing on the ball of your foot and bending your knees to create 90 degree angles.  Push through your right heel to return to standing and repeat on other side.  Repeat 15 times.  

 

Spider Man Mountain Climbers:  

Start in a high plank on hands and toes with body straight and tight.  Drive your right knee out and up toward your right elbow. As you do, turn and watch your knee meet with your arm. Alternate sides as fast as you can while maintaining a sturdy plank and keeping torso tight and still.  

 

Squat Jumps:  

Stand with your feet slightly wider than hip-distance apart.  Sit your butt back and bend your knees to drop into a squat, keeping your chest upright.  Jump into the air as hight as you can and straighten your legs.  Land back on the floor with soft knees and repeat.  

 

Wide Grip Push Ups 

Start in high plank position with your hands flat on the floor — a little wider than shoulder-width apart, wrists under shoulders.  Keeping your body in one long line, bend your arms and lower  yourself as close to the floor as you can, Push back up to start.  Extra challenging, do this slow… 

 

Standing Oblique Crunches:  

Stand with your feet hip—width apart and hands behind your head and elbows out wide.  Lift your left kneed toward your left elbow while you bend your torso up and over to the left.  Make sure you’re squeezing your abs tight as you do it.  Repeat on other side. 

 

Glute Bridge: 

Laying on your back, with hands to your side, scoot your heels as close to your body as you can then lift your rear end as high as you can.  Squeeze everything as tight as you can then raise up and lower for a count of 20.  Try one legged version of this for an extra challenge.
