Happy Thursday friends! Today, I’m sharing a few of my favorite, no-equipment exercises- a mix of strength and cardio moves you can do almost anywhere. These simple, effective moves are ones I come back to time and time again when I’m on vacation, or even at home when I want to fit in a quick circuit while dinners cooks.
It can be tough finding the time to fit in a workout when life is crazy busy… even as a fitness instructor, there are days I teach both in the morning and in the afternoon/evening, which doesn’t always leave me with the option to attend a class, or get in a lengthy workout session. The truth is, we don’t really need a ton of time… all it takes is a little will-power, a small space, and 20 minutes. These no-equipment exercises can be be modified to fit your needs and they will get your heart rate up in no time!
Without further ado, a few of my favorite no-equipment, at-home exercises…
NO-EQUIPMENT EXERCISES TO DO AT HOME
Push-ups work so many muscle groups at once (chest, arms, core, back, glutes), making them an ideal exercise to do at home when you’re short on time.
How to do it: start in a plank position, with your hands under your shoulders, but slightly wider. Holding your core tight, lower yourself until your chest is hovering the floor (arms should form a 45 degree angle at your lowest point). Press back up to your starting position, being careful not to drop your hips.
Modification: Push-ups from the knees, smaller range of motion (don’t lower as far down), or you can even start with wall push-ups!
