10 Ways to Workout at Home Without Equipment

Fitness danceNot everyone can afford a gym membership or even wants one. Whatever you reason for not going to the gym, it doesn’t mean you can’t get in a great workout right at home. These ten exercises will help you feel great no matter where you are.

  1. Jumping Jacks

Jumping jacks can be done just about anywhere, and they’re great for burning calories and getting your heart rate going.

  1. Jogging in Place

Jog in place while you watch TV or listen to music. Just be sure to wear comfortable shoes while you do so.

  1. Squats

You can either do regular squats, or do repetitions of sitting down and standing back up from a secure chair.

  1. Leg Lifts

These can be done standing in place and are great for building strength in your legs. Bring your knee up so your leg forms a 90-degree angle, and then bring it back down. Do repetitions on each leg.

  1. Crunches

To do a proper crunch, make sure you aren’t arching your chin or pushing your neck up. As long as you get at least part of your back off the floor, the crunches work as a great core exercise.

  1. Step Exercises

Go up and down the steps in your home until you feel yourself getting worn out. Just be careful so you don’t fall.

  1. Walking

Walk around your neighborhood, or even inside your own house if it’s big enough. Walking is highly underrated and can be a great way to burn calories. Plus, you can take in the scenery as you go.

  1. Pushups

Do either full pushups or ones starting from your knees. Planks are also perfect for strengthening your upper body and core. For planks, try to hold yourself up longer each time.

  1. Light Weight Lifting

You can either get actual weights or use items from around the house that you can easily hold on to.

  1. Dancing

Have fun and exercise at the same time by dancing to your favorite music. You can even get your family to join in and turn it into a dance party right there in your living room.
