Apartment workout…ALL bodyweight!

23 Oct

The first workout I posted was a general, full body routine for beginners. However, you would need dumbbells at the very least. Well, I have created a solution for you…a no-equipment, bodyweight workout routine you can do right at home. Can’t get any better than that!

You won’t be needing any of this!

For each move, I have again provided useful YouTube links so you can see what proper form is. Perform 3 sets, 15-20 reps for each exercise. If doing 15 reps seems easy, go for 20! You want to feel challenged and like the last few reps are very difficult. Go through the entire list, then repeat 2 more times to complete the 3 sets. Enjoy!

Squat (pause at the bottom for a second before coming up…feel the burn baby!)

Pushups (start video at 0:18) If you can’t do a pushup, do them on your knees and remember to keep your body in a straight line! Then, staying in that position move onto…

Mountain Climbers (do 30 of these, count “1” for each time you bring 1 leg in)

Single leg deadlift/reach It is very important to keep a flat back. Focus on bringing your back leg as high as you can and feel the stertch in your hamstrings

Tricep pushup

Plank jacks

Split squat

Hip raises/glute bridge Keep feet hip width apart and don’t thrust your hips too high. Squeeze glutes and hamstrings at the top of the movement, pause, then lower.

Plank (30-60 seconds depending on your fitness level)

REPEAT!

Let me know if you try out this workout…and if you have any questions about any of the exercises 🙂

On an unrelated note, I have created a Pinterest to post motivation, tips, recipes, workouts and more. Go ahead and follow me!

  1. Don’t forget handstand push ups. They are my favorite body weight exercise.
