Exercising can make you a happier, chiller, more sexually aroused person. But it can also be expensive and confusing. Good news. You can do these twelve, totally free exercises pretty much anywhere, anytime, using nothing but your own body weight.
So sorry, you’re out of excuses.
Pushup. Put your hands under your shoulders, and keep your feet hip-width apart. Keep your body in a straight line from the back of your head to your hips.
Don’t tilt your head or lift your butt. Keep your elbows in and close to your body throughout the movement. Plank’s like a pushup, except you don’t move. Your body should be in a straight line. Tighten your core, tuck your chin, look at the floor, and keep your feet hip-width apart. Squeeze you’re a*s. And breathe. To up the ante, do plank taps. Keep your body still as you tap your left shoulder with your right hand.
Then tap your right shoulder with your left hand. Carry on, alternating between hands, and getting fit as (censored). Glute Bridge. Lie on your back with your feet hip-width apart, toes facing forward, and your knees bent.
Contract your abs and push through your heels to lift your hips off the (censored) floor.
There are four lunges you need to know to change your life.
Side lunge. By keeping your chest up, shift your weight through your mid-foot and heel, while lunging as low as your flexibility allows. Don’t get (censored) sloppy and let your knees travel forward past your toes.
To do a reverse lunge, start out standing straight. Step one foot backwards, keeping your front knee at a 90-degree angle. Keep your chest up like you give a (censored) and distribute your weight evenly between your feet. Allow your back knee to lightly tap the floor, and push through your front heel as you stand up.
Spider lunges sound scary, if you’re afraid of spiders. But they’re not. Start at the top of a pushup position. Bring your right foot to the outside of your right hand, landing with a flat foot.
Bring your foot back to plank and repeat on the other side. Keep your shoulders over your hands, and your hips in line with your body. You’ve got this dawg. Jumping lunges aren’t for pussies. Keep your front knee at 90-degrees and lunge as low as your flexibility allows, without the back knee touching the floor. Seriously, don’t let it touch. Keep your torso vertical as (censored), and your weight distributed between your feet. Jump to switch your feet. Land softly.
Single-leg deadlift. Keep your back flat, your core tight, and your weight evenly distributed in your planted leg. Raise one leg behind you, hinging at the hips with your toes pointing down.
Don’t be an (censored). Bend only as low as your flexibility allows. Pull yourself back to stand, using the hamstring of your planted leg. Keep your head neutral, keep going.
Squat. Put your feet somewhere between hip and shoulder-width apart. Turn your toes out as needed, keep your chest tall, and look ahead and slightly up. As you bend, be sure your knees track in line with your toes. Squat only as deep as your flexibility allows. You know how deep that is. When you’re feeling advanced, it might be time for the squat jump. Squat until your thighs are parallel with the floor, with your chest up. Hold your arms straight as you squat, and push them behind your back as you jump. Exhale as you jump as high as you (censored) can and land softly.
Walkout. Keeping your legs as straight as your flexibility allows, and you’re back flat, bend at your waist, and place your hands on the floor in front of you. Keep your core tight as your walk your hands out to a plank position.
Push your hips as high as possible, and press your heels into the ground as you walk your hands back in. It’s about the god (censored) journey after all. Not the destination. You look fitter already.
