Best Bodyweight Exercises
What can you do when you can't get a gym?
If you are busy, on vacation, traveling for work or just want a good
workout at home, here are some of the best bodyweight exercises you
can do to get a great muscle building and fat burning workout.
Hang on the bars with your arms fully extended. Keep your legs bent
and crossed together.
Slowly lower yourself until your elbows are at about 90 degrees.
Focus on your chest muscles as you do this. Now push yourself back up
to the top position, but don't lock your elbows.
Close Grip Chinups
Grip the bar using an under-hand grip (palms facing you), with your
hands about 6-8 inches apart.
Pull your body up (using bicep muscles only) until your upper chest
touches the bar. Then slowly lower your body until your arms and
shoulders are fully extended. Repeat. Don't swing your body for
Get a few inches away from a wall and kick yourself up into a
handstand against the wall. At this point your body should be as
straight as possible, with your legs straight up the wall.
Slowly lower yourself to the ground. Once your head nearly touches
the floor, push yourself back up to the starting position (but don't
lock your elbows at the top).
One Leg Squats
Hold one leg out in front of you and stretch out your arms.
Lower yourself slowly using the leg that's on the ground. Make sure
your foot is perfectly flat on the floor and that you aren't moving
your toes around. At the point where your squatting leg is parallel
to the ground, squeeze your stomach muscles as hard as you can and
get to the bottom position. Hold the bottom position for 1 second
then push yourself back up to starting position. This exercise is
done one leg at a time.
Hanging Knee Raise
Hang from chin-up bar.
Lift your knees up towards your chin while rounding your back
slightly during each movement. At the top of each rep, hold and
squeeze your abs, then lower your legs in a controlled fashion.
Do not use momentum to swing your legs up.
