Body Weight Workout

Don’t have a gym membership?

Don’t have time to leave the house for the gym or a run?

Don’t have weights or at home gym?

Have no fear. There are TONS of things you can do to get a good sweat going at your home, with just your body. You can mix and match any of the exercises, or increase or decrease amounts…but here is just an example:

  • Warm-Up: 5 minutes of jump rope (with a jump rope, or imaginary!)


  • Circuit 1: repeat 2x
    • 20 body weight squats
    • 30 mountain climbers
    • 10 push ups
  • 2 minutes of high knees, 2 minutes of butt-kickers


  • Circuit 2: repeat 2x
    • 10 walking lunges, each leg
    • 20 plank jacks
    • 20 chair dips
  • 3 minutes of jumping jacks


  • Circuit 3: repeat 2x
    • 1 minute plank
    • 20 sit ups
    • 20 Russian Twists
  • Stretch!
