Here is a great workout for when you don’t have a lot of time or any equipment. This bodyweight workout can be done in only 15 minutes and doesn’t require any equipment. This also means you have no excuses for not working out!
This bodyweight workout is designed to be done straight through with no rest between exercises. It doesn’t involve a lot of cardio, so you shouldn’t need breaks to catch your breath. I went through the circuit three times, with one minute of rest between each set. That sequence only took me 15 minutes to complete. It is short and sweet, but still gets the job done!
Single Leg Dips – Standing on a chair, bench or box, lower one foot off of the side. Touch the ground and then stand back up. You may want to keep your arms extended out in front of you for balance.
Knee-to-Elbow Push-ups – Start in a push-up position. Bring your left knee as close to your left elbow as possible and return it to its starting position. Repeat on the right side, and then do a push-up. This is one rep.
Russian Twists (Windshield Wipers) – While laying on your back, place your fully extended arms out on either side of you with your legs straight up in the air. Now twist your hips to one side and lower your legs toward the ground without letting them actually touch. Return to starting position and repeat on the opposite side.
Windmills – Stand with your feet slightly wider than shoulder width apart. Turn both feet to the right and raise your left hand above your head. Keeping your left hand straight up and down and your legs straight, lower your right hand along your right leg until it touches the floor or gets as close as you can. Do this while keeping your eyes on your top hand for balance. Stand back up to starting position.
