video until the end. Alright, you ready to get moving? All of the moves you’re going to see today
are bodyweight exercises which means you’ll only be working with your own body weight.Alright
here we go: SQUATS – Alright now we’re gonna work out
the glutes with the squat. It’s important to only squat as far as is
comfortable in the beginning, and then later on you can work towards a deeper squat. Start by standing upright with your feet slightly
wider than your shoulders. Tighten your core, keep you chest lifted and
look straight ahead (not down) and bend your knees as if you’re about to sit down. It’s important to keep the knees in line
with your body and don’t let them bow out to the sides. Drop down until your thighs are parallel to
the floor while bringing your arms towards your chest to help you balance. Pause for a quick second or two, stand up
and start the process all over again. 20 times or reps is considered one “set”
so if you’re starting out begin with 3 sets. TRICEP DIPS – This is a great exercise when
you want to tone your arms and get rid of those jiggly parts when we wave. You don’t actually need dumbbells to build
muscle in your arms after all, you can just use your own body weight. How these work: You start by sitting on a
bench or chair, something that’s going to support your weight without toppling over. Start sitting down with good posture, you
shoulders rolled slightly back and chest out. Place your hands directly under your shoulders
onto the bench or chair. Put your legs out in front of you, starting
with the easier option of keeping your knees slightly bent, you can make it harder later
by keeping your legs fully straight. Bend your elbows and lower your body down,
focusing on moving your elbows not your hips. Try keeping your neck long and inhaling as
you dip down, exhale as you straighten your arms and lift your body up. BURPEES – Full disclosure, this one is pretty
difficult and people will often say how much they hate doing burpees…even though it has
a funny name. However this type of exercise is a fantastic
workout that’ll get your whole body moving, helping to improve muscle strength and overall
endurance. To begin, stand upright with feet shoulder
width apart. Put your arms in front of your chest and squat
down, when you reach the ground jump your legs out behind your to form a plank or push
up position. Do one push up, ending with your arms fully
extended. From here jump you legs back underneath you
(get them as close to your hands as possible) and from here jump straight up with your arms
up over your head. Sounds complicated, but that’s one complete
rep. Start with 3 sets of 10 reps each when starting
out. FRONT PLANK – We’re getting into the more
difficult exercises now, but you can do it!! Strengthening your core is vital to being
fit and healthy and the plank is great for your ab muscles. Start by lying on the ground face down. Keep your stomach muscles engaged and pulled
in tight. Lift yourself up onto your forearms and keep
you legs extended out straight behind you in a sort of “plank” position. Make sure you keep your back straight resping
on the balls of your feel and forearms, looking at your hands. Hold this position for at least one minute,
which is much harder than it seems! Keep your neck relaxed throughout. Try 3 sets of one minute each to start out
with. GLUTE BRIDGE: This is another work out that’s
great for your bum muscles, or glutes. Start out by lying on your back, feet flat
on the floor and knees bent. Place your arms by your sides palms on the
floor. Start the exercise by pushing up from the
heels and raise your hips working your glutes, hamstrings and core muscles. Keep your back and shoulders on the ground
the whole time while pushing up your hips to form a slope with your body. Pause at the top for 1 to 2 seconds and slowly
lower yourself back down to the ground. Each set is about 10 – 12 reps and for a good
workout, do about 3 sets to begin with. PUSH UPS – The classic push up. It’s a classic for a reason as this one
is one of the most effective exercises around. This one will work out your chest, triceps
and the front of your shoulders. Start by laying down on your stomach. Then place your hands face down on the ground
about shoulder width apart with your wrists pretty close to you shoulders. Your toes should be pointed down towards the
floor. When you begin, push your body up all while
keeping your back straight and your body in one long line. Take a big breath in as you lower your chest
to the floor, and exhale as you push yourself back up. It’s suggested that you do 3 sets of 10
if you’re just starting out. BENT KNEE PUSH UP – If the classic pushup
is a little intimidating you can start out with this one instead, the bent knee push
up. Start the same way you would a regular push
up on your stomach with your hands about shoulder width apart, wrists almost touching the shoulders. Then bend your knees and cross your feet behind
you. Try to keep your back straight and use your
knees are your support when pushing yourself up and straightening your arms. Inhale as you lower yourself to the ground
and exhale as you push up. Start with 3 sets of 10 if you’re just starting
out. LUNGES – Lunges are great when you want to
focus on balance all while strengthening your legs. Begin by placing your feet shoulder width
apart. Take a step forward with your right leg and
keep your left behind you. Lower yourself down all while making sure
your right knee does not extend past your right foot (the one in front). Switch legs and repeat. This counts for one rep, and if beginning
you should do 3 sets of 10 reps. SIT UPS – Sit ups are one of the best ways
to work out your abdomen and strengthen your core. To perform a proper sit up you can start by
lying on your back with your knees bent and feet firmly planted on the floor. Cross your arms across your chest, with hands
on your shoulders. The main challenge here is when you go to
sit up, you want to think about pushing your lower back down into the floor so you’re
not arching it when you do your first sit up. This is very important you do not want your
butt to come up off the ground when you do a sit up. Exhale when you sit up trying to keep your
feet firmly planted on the floor. You can also get someone to hold your feet,
or anchor them. Start with 2 or 3 sets of 12 reps to begin. If you want to increase the difficulty you
can put your arms behind your head for a more intense sit up. Those are some great ways you can start working
out if you don’t have a gym membership, or access to any gym equipment. You can just use the power of your own body! Working out is an awesome way to make your
body and mind feel great! What’s your favourite way to work out? Are you excited to try any of the moves on
