Sweat It Out With This 5 min Workout, No Equipment Needed!Kyle Peters
After a long work day it always seems like the last thing you want to do is go to the gym. Its never quick and a whole process just to make it there, especially in the winter. We have an option for you. In 10 minutes from the comfort of your own home, get your heart pumping, your legs burning with this full body equipment free workout.
Here we go! To start off the workout we are going to be doing pushups!! Start in a plank position with your palms flat on the ground wider than your shoulders. Point your fingers in front of you or slightly out to the side. Bend your elbows, lowering your chest toward the floor. Pause when your chest is slightly below your elbows. Push back up to the starting position and repeat 10 times. (You can modify this by lowering down onto your knees and performing the pushup from there.)
Stand with your feet shoulder width apart with your toes facing slightly outward. Bring your palms together at your chest with your elbows bent. Squeeze your abs and look forward as you push your hips backward and bend your knees. Remember to keep your back straight as you continue to lower your butt until your hips are below your knees. Position your elbows so that they are inside your knees before pushing down through the heels to stand back up. Repeat 10 times.
Lay on the floor with your elbows under your shoulders, hands flat on the floor and core engaged. Keeping your forearms and knees on the floor slowly raise yourself upwards until your body is in a straight line from your knees to your head. Hold the position for 30 seconds
Lying with your back on the ground, squeeze your abs as you lift your legs straight up toward the ceiling. Begin lowering your legs down slowly until they are a few inches off the ground. (For me, I only lower to about 45 degrees to ensure that I keep my abs engaged and don’t overarch my low back.) Lift them back up to the starting position. Remember to keep your low back flat on the ground throughout. Repeat 10 times.
Sit at the edge of the couch with your feet on the ground and bend your knees so that your feet are flat on the floor in front of you. Place your hands behind you on the edge of the couch with your palms flat and your fingertips pointing toward your butt. Press down into the couch to lift your butt up into the air. Bend your elbows to dip your body toward the ground, then push through the palms to return to the starting position. Repeat 10 times. This workout can be done on any hard surface
