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.
2. Split Drops
- Start with your feet together and jump into a split squat, with one leg in front of the other, as seen here. (Don’t do a single leg lunge—move both legs simultaneously.)
- Then, jump back into standing position.
- Repeat for 20 total reps, alternating which leg drops in front.
Basso says: “This exercise is great for your hamstrings, glutes, and the quad of whichever leg is in front, plus it gives you a better stretch reflex in your hamstring. The weight of your body dropping brings you further down than you would if you were doing a regular lunge.”
