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.

4. Monkey Push Up

  • Start in a traditional push-up position.
  • Press up, and when your arms are fully extended, rotate and kick left leg underneath your body and out to the right side, as you see here.
  • Repeat with right leg. Again, alternate sides for a total of 20 reps (each side gets 10).

Basso says: “By adding this rotation, you’re developing the oblique muscles while getting the benefit of a regular push-up. It’s also a great stretch reflex for the chest muscles.”
