Who needs a gym when we can train anywhere! We can make the world our gym with bodyweight exercises. See Arnita Champion? She’s 52 years old doing a one legged plank. Wow!

There are simple, effective ways to improve balance, flexibility, and strength without machinery or extra equipment. Here are our tops picks for the full body.

Plank, Push-Up to Downward Dog

Starting in a plank position, place down one hand at a time to lift up into a push-up position, with the back straight and the core engaged. Then move one arm at a time back into the plank position (forearms on the ground). Repeat, alternating the arm that makes the first move.

Burpees

One of the most effective full-body exercises around, this one starts out in a low squat position with hands on the floor. Next, kick the feet back to a push-up position, complete one push-up, then immediately return the feet to the squat position. Leap up as high as possible before squatting and moving back into the push-up portion of the show.

Tuck Jump

Standing with the knees slightly bent, jump up as high as possible (pretend Jeremy Lin is watching!) and bring the knees in toward the chest while extending the arms straight out. Land with the knees slightly bent and quickly jump (on it) again!

Mountain Climber

Mountain-Climber

Starting on your hands and knees, bring the left foot forward directly under the chest while straightening the right leg. Keeping the hands on the ground and core tight, jump and switch legs. The left leg should now be extended behind the body with the right knee forward. Next up? Everest.
