You don’t have to go to the gym to get your body in shape. With bodyweight exercises, you can do it in your own living room. You also don’t need any equipment to do it. All you need is some room to move and a will to get started. It’s strength training made simple.
Here are three easy exercises to get you going.
We’ve all done squats in the gym class, but few of us know how to do them the right way. When you take the starting position, you should keep your feet apart at shoulder width. Proceed to sit your hips back while bending your knees. Once your thighs are parallel to the floor, stop and go back into your starting position. While you’re doing this, your weight should be on your heels.
2. Skater Hops
Not only are skater hops fun, but they’re also a great exercise to get your body in shape. Stand on your right leg while keeping your left leg in the air. Now use the strength of your body to jump as far left as you can. Of course, you’ll land on your left leg and your right leg will be in the air. For this exercise to be effective, do your best not to touch the floor with your free leg.
3. High Knees
High knees are very easy to do because they’re much like running in place. Your starting position should be the same as when you’re doing squats. Start lifting your knees up one at a time in front of your chest. At the same time, make sure to keep your upper body straight. To get your body in shape with high knees, your legs should be doing all the work.
These are three great exercises that can help you get your body in shape. You can combine them to create your own workout routine. Repeat each of them 10 times before moving on to the next one and take a short break after you complete one full set.
