Have you ever skipped out on a workout because you were:
a) Short on time, b) Your gym was closed, c) On vacay with the fam, d) On a work trip and hotel gym is 2 treadmills, an elliptical and a yoga mat and somehow they are all being used??... Trust me, there are plenty more excuses and you're definitely not alone! After all, it's easy to buy into the idea that if the scene isn't perfectly set for a workout, you're better off just waiting to do it until everything is perfect. I get it.
The idea that banging out a workout when you don't have access to your usual gym space or equipment is definitely high up on the excuse list. I’m here to stop your excuses. We all have busy lives we are juggling and sometimes we can’t make it to the gym, and thats okay. You can still get a killer workout using just your body weight. With the help of a little gravity, your own body is an amazing tool to challenge your muscles, dare I say sometimes more difficult than using weights and machines.
Here are my top 5 no-equipment exercises to challenge your whole body. The only thing you need is discipline to get the job done. I have an exercise for each part of the body. These 5 exercises would be great to do in a circuit format for a full body burner. Whether you’re short on time or you are staying a hotel with a useless gym, these 5 no equipment exercises are good bodyweight exercises to work every muscle group and are great for everyone to keep in their back pocket for that rainy day where the gym is closed. No whistles or bells, or kettlebells are required.
