With Body Weight Exercises
You Never Need a Gym
If you are busy and need to workout at home or travel lots you need a workout that you can do anytime anywhere, that is where body weight exercises make the perfect choice. Need a few exercises you can do anytime, anywhere, to help you burn fat and lose weight.
Below are the three best body weight exercises you can do. These exercises are efficient and effective at burning stubborn body fat without any equipment.
1. Bodyweight Single-Leg Exercise
Most any single leg exercise will be effective. Here are some of the better ones.
- The pistol – a single-leg squat, but to the floor. This is the most advanced bodyweight exercise you can do.
The great thing about this exercise is how scalable is. You can do a bodyweight single leg squat with the assistance of a band, stability Ball between your back and the wall, onto a bench, or simply holding on something close by.
If you aren’t ready for single-leg squats, you can use Bulgarian Split Squats, Reverse Lunges, regular split squats, or lying 1-leg hip bridges if you are a beginner.

2. Bodyweight Push-ups
Again these are scalable and at various versions. Of course the most basic of the is a classic hands on the floor and wait on the needs.
- knees on the ground
- decline with feet elevated
- close grip with hands in tight
- hips up high and above your shoulders
- one leg off the ground
- one handed
With the decline version it is harder than normal pushups, thanks to your elevated feet. And in this position, you can still use a close-grip to fatigue your triceps, a “piked-hip position” to build your shoulders, or even the Spiderman leg motion to work on your abs.
3. Bodyweight Inverted Rows
I choose these over chinups and pullups because bodyweight rows let your chest rest, while your back is strengthened. It’s the perfect compliment to a pushup. Plus it is easy to change the angle to increase or decrease the difficulty.
Do 8-12 repetitions per exercise. Don’t rest between exercises. Go through the circuit up to 3 times, resting 1 minute after each
For a once-per-month challenge, do each exercise to failure in your final round through the circuit.
