I like body weight exercises because they are simple and I can do them almost anywhere. You don’t need a gym to do push ups, squats, sit ups, planks, and/or jumping.
And those exercises right there are a basic full body workout.
If you have access to a bar or a playground you can usually do some pull ups or leg ups which I’ll show you in the video.
And remember you don’t need a gym or weights. So that’s not an excuse!
This body weight workout will work your upperbody, core and legs and it only took me about 11 minutes and nothing else other than a swing set that I used as a pull up bar and a stone wall to jump up on.
Here I do some:
-pull ups (upper body)
-leg ups (core+arms)
-frog jump squats (legs)
-jump ups or box jumps (legs)
I do 2 sets of each exercise for the most part. I usually go for fatigue and stop and then do another exercise and then come back.
Here I do about 25 pull ups, 20 full breaths of planks, 15 leg ups, 40 frog jumps, and maybe 70 box jumps.
Doing another set would probably give me more muscle development, yet I can get bored doing a lot of repetition so I keep it simple. Also I don’t like to spend a lot of time doing this.
Have knee issues?
Box jumping up does not hurt my knees. Jumping rope can hurt my knees and squats can hurt my knees and if I jump down from the box that can hurt so I step down and jump up.
