If you think that you need to use exercise equipment to get fit and strong, think again. Your own body weight is all the equipment you need to get in shape.

Give my ultimate body weight workout a try and you will never be able to use the “I can’t get to the gym” excuse ever again.

My ultimate bodyweight workout


Do a 10-minute full-body warm-up. Include dynamic stretches, jumping jacks, high knees, and lateral hops. You can personalize this part of your workout and do what works for you.

Next, I’m going to list out some circuits you can do to get the most from your body weight workout.

1: Simple 20’s

Perform 20 of each exercise listed. You can modify the moves if necessary. No rest in between each move, but you can rest for 2 minutes after the set.

  • 20 squats
  • 20 full push-ups
  • 20 lunges, alternating legs
  • 20 burpees
  • 20 bicycle abs


2: Tough 10’s

This second set is a more advanced version of each exercise but with fewer reps. Try to push yourself to do 10 of each move with no rest. You can rest for 3-5 minutes after the set.

  • 10 jumping squats
  • 10 diamond push-ups
  • 10 jumping split squats
  • 10 burpees with a push-up and a tuck jump
  • 10 straight leg toe touch abs


3: Holding 15’s

For the third set, hold each move for 15 seconds. Remember to breathe while holding the move.

  • Wall squats
  • Plank holds
  • Hold lunge position
  • Bridge pose holds


I can’t stop working out because of my travel schedule, but what I can do is adapt my training and perform more bodyweight strength exercises when I’m on the road.

This has been great for me for a few reasons. One of the main ones is that I can do a bodyweight workout anywhere while on the go. Most hotel gyms are not very well equipped. With this bodyweight workout, I don’t have to concern myself with an ill-equipped gym because I can do my workout in my room.

I repeat this circuit 2-3 times through, followed by some stretches as I cool down. The entire routine will take about 40mins, but my advice is to do as much as your time schedule allows. Some exercise is always better than none.
