Inability to get to the gym (or unwillingness to pay for a gym membership) shouldn’t keep you from working on your strength and fitness goals. And it definitely doesn’t have to. There are a ton (seriously, we mean aton) of no-equipment workouts you can do literally anywhere. All you need it a tiny bit of space and your own bodyweight.
One of the best things about a no-equipment workout is its flexibility. On the road? Work out in your hotel room. Beautiful day? Take it to the park. Because your body is your workout equipment, your workout can literally go anywhere you do.
But another benefit of a no-equipment workout doesn’t really show up until you get moving. The beauty of using your own bodyweight is that it makes everything modifiable. If plank is hurting your wrists, you can take it to your elbows. If you want more from your glute bridges, you can pick up one leg and do single-leg bridges. Your “equipment” is insanely easy to adjust to your specifications because, well, it’s you.
Sold on the idea? It’s time to start putting together your own no-equipment workout. We like to pick 5-8 moves that target different parts of the body, do them each for a set amount of reps (e.g., 10) or time (e.g., 30 seconds), then loop the whole thing a couple of times. This usually yields a 30-ish-minute, full-body workout.
Without further ado, here are some moves we love:
Chest and Arms
Who needs equipment? Not you!
