Body Weight Training: 5 Gym-Free Moves

Here’s a workout that builds strength, balance and flexibility — no fancy gym equipment required.
Start standing with legs straight and wider than shoulder-width apart (about a foot and a half from heel to heel). Bend your left knee to squat down onto that leg laterally, keeping right leg straight. Squat down laterally onto your left leg. When you raise out of the lateral squat, step behind your right leg and sink into a squat while keeping the your right leg straight. Then push back up and through the starting position.

Basso says: It’s a one-combination movement that is actually a two-for-one exercise because you are working both legs.
