5 Most effective ways to train yourself without any equipment!

Q1. I Don’t have much time to workout?
Q2. I Want to develop real strength?

Do you see yourself asking these questions...if so >

Then please keep reading because in this blog I will outline the 5 Most effective ways to train yourself without any equipment! that will not only help you get stronger but also burn a lot of calories YES a lot of it!

Compound exercises are simply exercises that target more than one muscle group. For
clarity, exercises that target a single muscle group are called isolation exercises.

1. Squats : The king of all exercises

Squats not only works your lower body but they also make your HR go up so you get the benefit of weight training & Cardio at the same time.

CORRECT FORM: Make sure that when you squat your knees should never go beyond your toes. (you should be able to see your big toe over looking your knee!)

2. Push-ups: Back to basics

This exercise can be done on a chair, steps, floor while on your knees or standing up against the wall. This could be included in the workout of beginners or really advanced. I have been training for over 10 yrs now and do them every single time when I train myself. You can get a good cardio just by doing these.

CORRECT FORM: Make sure that your hands are directly below your shoulders. Aim at touching your chest to the floor keeping your body straight.

3. Lunges:

A great leg toner that will also build explosive strength in the heart and lungs.

CORRECT FORM: Keeping your back straight lung forward with one leg paying close attention to the leg that is behind you & taking your knee almost to the floor. Make sure that you don't touch the floor with you knee.

4. Jump Rope: Old is gold!

If you have a jump rope or just pretending to be holding one, this workout works like a charm. It gets your HR your legs and makes you sweat. Anywhere & anytime is the beauty of this workout.

CORRECT FORM: Make sure to land softly when you are actually jumping the rope. Come down on your toes and jump back up. Either count to a certain number or time yourself.

5. Step-ups: What goes up - comes down!

If you have steps in your house then this is a killer and you don't have any excuse. Go up and down the steps 5-10 times in a 3 set format non-stop for a total body workout.

CORRECT FORM: Hold while coming down and to add a little variation try to cover 2 steps at a time.

If you follow the above described exercise routine everyday (5-6 days a week) in a 3 set format one after the other, I guarantee that you will loose weight and will feel the difference in your energy right away!

Eat right and exercise is the only Mantra for a fit body and a fit mind!

Thank you
