Q:

What are some good full-body workouts that I can do at home without any equipment?

Hi everyone,

I have been trying to stay fit and healthy during this quarantine period but I don't have any workout equipment at home. I'm looking for some full-body workouts that I can do without any equipment. I usually go to the gym for my workouts but since that's not possible right now, I want to find some effective at-home workouts.

I'm a beginner when it comes to fitness, so I'm looking for something that is not too difficult but can give me a good workout. I have a small space to work out in, so it would be great if the workouts didn't require a lot of space.

Any suggestions for good full-body workouts that I can do at home without any equipment? Thank you in advance for your help!

Hey!

I understand that staying active and healthy during these times can be a bit challenging, especially if you don't have any equipment at home. One exercise that helped me a lot is the Superman planks. It is a full-body workout that will help strengthen your back, core and upper body.

Start by getting into a high plank position with your hands placed directly under your shoulders. Lift your right arm and left leg off the ground and hold for a moment before alternating. As you lift, ensure that you engage your core and avoid twisting your hips.

Another exercise that you can try is the donkey kicks. This exercise will work your glutes, lower back, and upper leg muscles. Start on all fours, lift your right leg off the ground and kick it back towards the ceiling in a controlled motion. Repeat on the left leg, alternating the motion.

Lastly, the hip bridge exercise is a great way to work your hips, glutes, and lower back. Lay on your back with your hands at your sides and your feet planted on the floor. Slowly lift your hips off the ground, pause for a few seconds, then lower back down. Repeat this for several reps.

Remember to always maintain proper form with each exercise, listen to your body and start slowly. As you progress, you can increase the intensity of these exercises to challenge yourself. Stay motivated, stay positive, and stay healthy. All the best!

Greetings!

I hear you on looking for full-body workouts that can be done without equipment. I, too, have been trying to maintain my fitness during the pandemic, and I've found some exercises that work wonders.

One of my favorites is the plank to push-up exercise. This exercise targets your arms, chest, shoulders, and core. Start in a forearm plank position with your elbows on the ground and feet hip-width apart. Then, lift your right elbow off the ground and replace it with your right hand, followed by your left hand. Now, extend your right arm back into a plank position, followed by your left arm. Repeat the process, switching the leading arm. For an easier variation, you can do a full plank or a half push-up.

Another great exercise is the crab walk. This exercise targets your core, glutes, and arms. Begin in a seated position with your legs bent at a 90-degree angle and your hands behind your hips. Lift your hips off the ground and walk forward, alternating your left and right feet and hands simultaneously.

Finally, the wall sit is a great exercise to target your legs, glutes, and core. Start by standing with your back against a wall, then slowly slide down until knees are at a 90-degree angle. Keep your back straight against the wall and hold for 30 to 60 seconds.

Remember, take your time with each exercise, and don't push yourself too hard. Overdoing it can lead to injury, start with a few reps and work your way up slowly. With these simple exercises, you can stay active and healthy while staying indoors. Good luck!

Hi there!

I can definitely relate to your situation. I've been doing a lot of at-home workouts during this quarantine period, and I've found a few that I really like.

One of my favorites is the simple but effective bodyweight squat. It works your entire lower body, including your glutes, quads, and hamstrings. To do it, stand with your feet hip-width apart, sit back into a squat, and keep your weight in your heels. Make sure to keep your core tight and chest up for proper form!

Another great full-body workout is the plank. This exercise is perfect for strengthening your core, but it also works your arms, shoulders, and legs. Start by getting into a push-up position, then lower your forearms to the ground so that your elbows are directly below your shoulders. Hold this position for 30 seconds or longer, making sure to keep your body in a straight line from head to heels.

Finally, I love doing burpees! This is a total body exercise that really gets your heart rate up. Start in a standing position, then squat down and place your hands on the ground. Jump your feet back so that you're in a plank position, then do a push-up. Jump your feet forward so that you're back in a squat position, then jump as high as you can. That's one rep! Do as many as you can in 30 seconds or a minute.

I hope these exercises help! Remember to always listen to your body and start slowly if you're a beginner. Good luck!

Hi there!

Working out at home can be challenging, but with some creativity, you can have an effective full-body workout without any equipment. One of my favorite exercises is the butterfly sit-up. This exercise targets your upper and lower abs. Start by lying on your back with the soles of your feet together and knees falling outward. With your hands behind your head, sit up toward your feet, and return to the starting position. Repeat for several reps.

Another exercise that you can do is the spider-man push-up. This is a great way to work your shoulders, chest, and core. Begin in a push-up position, then as you lower your body, bring your right knee outside your elbow. Push back up, repeat on the left side, and then continue alternating.

The next exercise is the skater lunge, which targets your legs and glutes. Start with your feet hip-width apart, then take a large lateral step with your right foot and lower down into a squat, tapping your left hand to the ground. Jump towards the left, landing on your left foot, and repeat on the left side.

In conclusion, I hope these exercises are helpful for your goals. Remember to engage your core, maintain proper form, and take it at your own pace. Don't neglect the importance of proper nutrition and rest either. Anyway, enjoy your workout, and good luck!

Hi everyone,

I have been looking for some full-body workouts that I can do without equipment at home because I'm unable to join the gym due to the pandemic. I'm a beginner and looking to start with some easy workouts that can strengthen my core muscles.

One exercise that I've been really enjoying is the prone plank. This is an effective core exercise that can be done anywhere without any equipment. Start by placing your forearms on the ground with elbows under your shoulders and extend your legs behind you. Keep your body straight, avoid sagging in the middle, and hold for 30 seconds or longer.

Another great exercise that can target your core and entire body is the bicycle crunches. This exercise is perfect for targeting your oblique muscles. Start by lying on your back with your knees bent and hands behind your head. Lift your head and shoulders off the ground, touch your right elbow to your left knee, extend your right leg, and switch sides.

Finally, the squat jump is another full-body exercise that can elevate your heart rate and work your legs, glutes, and core. Start by standing with your feet shoulder-width apart and squat down, then explosively jump up. Land softly and repeat.

I hope these exercises are helpful to you in reaching your fitness goals. Remember to challenge yourself, go at your own pace, and stay safe. Good luck!

Hello there!

I know how tricky it can be to find good full-body workouts to do from home, and that's why I want to share some exercises that have been helpful for me. One of the best things about bodyweight workouts is that you don't need equipment to get started, so you can do them anytime, anywhere.

A great full-body workout that I enjoy is the reverse lunge. This exercise helps to strengthen your legs, glutes, and core. To do this move, you'll start by standing with your feet hip-width apart. Then, take one step behind you, lowering your hips towards the ground. Be sure to keep your front knee above your ankle, and your back knee hovering above the ground. Drive through your front heel to return to the starting position and repeat on the other side.

Another full-body workout that I love is mountain climbers. This exercise helps to get the heart rate up and works your arms, legs, and core. Begin in a plank position and bring your right knee up towards your chest. Quickly switch and bring your left knee towards your chest. Keep alternating the movement for 30 seconds to a minute.

Lastly, jumping jacks is a great cardiovascular exercise that engages your entire body. Stand with your feet together and jump while spreading your arms and legs apart so that you land with your feet wider than shoulder-width apart and arms overhead. Jump back to the starting position and repeat for several reps.

I hope you find these exercises helpful in reaching your fitness goals. Remember, always listen to your body, start slowly, and gradually increase the intensity. All the best!
