Bodyweight exercises can help you stay fit at home, or on the road with little or no equipment. Here are a few of the best bodyweight exercises for maintaining muscle strength and endurance, or creating a great interval training routine at home. Mix and match the exercises to create the perfect workout for traveling, home fitness or simply adding a bit of variety to your typical exercise routine.

Start with a light warm up for a few minutes. This can be walking, marching in place or stepping side to side. The goal of the warm up is to get your blood circulating and you body temperature rising in order to prepare for higher intensity exercise.

Perform each exercise for 30 seconds to two minutes depending upon your conditioning and interest. Move to the next exercise smoothly, but quickly. You can continue the routine as long as you like, but aim for a twenty to thirty minute workout. Cool down with five or more minutes of stretching, and easy movements.

Push Ups
Begin in push up position, on knees or toes. Perform 4 push ups, abs in and back straight. On the 5th push up, lower halfway down and hold for 4 counts. Push back up and repeat the series – 4 regular push ups and 1 halfway–5 or more times.

How to Do the Basic Abdominal Crunch

  • Lie on your back, bend your knees, placing your hands on the sides of your head.
  • Contract your abs and flatten your lower back against the floor.
  • Slowly lift your shoulder blades one or two inches off the floor.
  • Exhale as you lift, keep your neck straight and chin up.
  • Hold for a few seconds (don’t hold your breath).
  • Slowly lower while keeping your abs contracted.
  • Repeat up to 20 reps this perfect form for each rep.
  • To make it more difficult, use an exercise ball.

Chair Dips
You’ll need two chairs, (or a bed and a chair or a counter, etc…) for this great tricep exercise. Place two chairs facing each other, about 3 feet apart. Sit on one chair with your hands palm down and gripping the edge of the chair. Place your heels on the edge of the other chair and hold yourself up using your triceps. Slide forward just far enough that your behind clears the edge of the chair and lower yourself so your elbows are at 90 degrees. Do as many repetitions as you can.
