Equipment-Free Exercises That Tone Your Whole Body
- Posted on: Nov 7 2015
Would you like to improve your appearance, your strength, and your energy levels? Would you like to do that without a gym membership or expensive exercise equipment? There are plenty of exercises that require no equipment and you’ll be able to improve your whole body.
Consider adding some of these to your routine:
Running is one of the most effective and accessible exercises available. If you’re looking for a way to burn calories, strengthen your legs, and slim down all over, running is one of your best options. You don’t have to have a treadmill to get your daily run in. Go for a jog in your neighborhood or stop by a nearby college or high school track. Often these tracks are open to the public and you can run laps on a surface that is easy on your knees while easily keeping track of your distance.
Burpees engage the entire body and you can do them almost anywhere as long as you clear a little bit of space.
Begin in a squat position with your feet wide apart and your knees slightly bent. Move from that position to the ground while thrusting your legs back. You should end in pushup position. Do a pushup, then bring your knees back in close to your hands and jump up. If you’d like to learn more about burpees, or try some variations, look for a tutorial video online. Burpees work your core, chest, shoulders, calves, thighs, triceps and more. Start by doing 10-15 in a row and build up your endurance while sculpting your whole body.
The plank is another exercise that tones your whole body. There are many variations of the plank. You can start in pushup position with your hands and feet all on the floor then push your body up, keeping your back straight and abs tight. Hold the position for 30 seconds and work up to more time as you go. You can also alter the plank by holding one leg off the ground, lifting an arm, or lifting one arm and one leg that are opposite from each other.
