Body Weight Workout
You can use your own body weight to get in shape. The 30 minute body weight workout is not a knew idea as a matter of fact it has been around for a long time. Using your own body weight for resistance is an easy way to get in exercise anywhere.
Simple moves that can easily improve your strength and stamina can be done anytime. You do not need a machine or special equipment to get the work out your body needs. The steps are simple and you can change up your exercises on a daily basis so you don’t get bored with it.
Find a ledge, a step even a curb and place your palms on it with your back to it. Slowly rise up and down slowly. Do ten or more reps and move forward to the next exercise (yes it really is that simple)! This simple exercise will get the back of your arms nice and tight.
Get on all fours and extend one leg out and bring the other leg up toward your chest. Than quickly switch your legs out in a hopping motion. This will tighten up your thighs ( and backside) do this 10-15 times or as many as you can reasonably stand than move on to the next exercise!
Want buns of steel? The glute bridge will get you there. Lay flat on your back and pull your backside up in the air while pulling in your belly button. Sounds hard? It is at first but don’t give up. Do this 10 time and hold for 5 seconds each time.
Stand with your feet together and arms outstretched than act as if you are getting ready to sit in a chair. Do this at least 10 times and hold as if you are getting ready to sit 15 seconds in between. This will strengthen your core and tighten your thighs and glutes!
There is something to be said for a good ole fashion push up. Lay flat on the floor with your feet together belly down. Using only your arms lift yourself (while remaining straight) off the floor. This will build your arms and chest! Do as many as you can. Breath in on the way down and out on the way up!
Rest 35-40 seconds in between the body weight workout exercises and do them all at least 3 times a week and you will be on your way to a fitter, healthier you!
