Two Bodyweight Workouts I’m Loving Right Now

With Summer on the way, bodyweight workouts are quickly bubbling at the top of the list of effective ways to move for me. Why? Well, not to state the obvious but…

They don’t require any equipment.

This, in and of itself, isn’t much of a surprise, of course, but what makes them particularly appealing for me, especially in the Summer months, is that these workouts can be done pretty much anywhere.

Like many, during the warmer months, I like to spend as much time as I can outside, which makes gym workouts… less appealing.

I don’t want to be stuck in the gym; I want to smell the flowers, feel the sunshine on my skin and hang out with my kids at the park!

Living rooms, hotel rooms, backyards and playgrounds can all become your temporary gym when you’re doing these workouts (and yes, you can EVEN do them in the gym if you wish!)

While I get that it may feel intimidating at first to venture into working out in non-workout designated areas―I know! I used to feel like that too!―you’ll quickly find that it’s no big deal.

Will there  be people watching you? Perhaps. But I’d put money on the fact that they’ll be admiring your dedication, not judging you like you fear they will!

With so many movement combinations available, bodyweight workouts can come in an almost infinite variety. One way I like to put them together is with intervals consisting of 6 moves for 30 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest. This means each round lasts 4 minutes. After each round, you can take a longer rest―at least 60 seconds.

Here are two bodyweight workouts that I’m loving right now:


THE CALM & THE FURY

Set an interval timer for 6 rounds of 30 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest.
Perform the following circuit:

Single-Leg Deadlift Right
Single-Leg Deadlift Left
Pike Press
Reptile
In & Out Jump Squat
Cross Mountain Climber

Complete this circuit 3 to 6 times, resting 60 seconds at the bottom of each round.


BREEZING THROUGH

Set an interval timer for 6 rounds of 30 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest.
Perform the following circuit:

Squat & Front Lunge
Shoulder Tap Push-Up
Triple Step
Mountain Climber
Glute Bridge
Forearm Plank

Complete this circuit 3 to 6 times, resting 60 seconds at the bottom of each round.
