5 Body Weight Exercises You Can Do Anywhere
No time to get to the gym? No problem. You can use your own weight to build muscle—here's how.
5. Power Burpee
- As in a traditional burpee, drop into push up position.
- Then, jump into squat position.
- Follow that with a jump about six inches into the air.
- Finally, drop into a squat and then do an explosive tuck jump—as high as you can and pulling knees in, as you see here. That’s one rep.
Basso says: “On top of having your heart rate elevated, you’re really firing your hamstrings because you have to elevate your body as much as possible. When you pull your knees up in the tucked position, you’re actually working your core too.”
