If the thought of a home workout makes you sigh, reconsider! Using only your body weight might give you a run for your money if done right. So, if going to the gym isn't your thing or you're short on time, clear some space in your living room and get ready to sweat.

1Pushups

Push Ups

A pushup is a classic callisthenics exercise that begins in the prone position. Pushups work the pectoral muscles, triceps, and anterior deltoids, as well as the other deltoids, serratus anterior, coracobrachialis, and the core as a whole, by elevating and lowering the body with the arms.

2Plank

Plank

The plank is a great core and abdominal workout. Add the plank to your home workout routine to maintain your strong and stable core. A brawny and powerful core looks and feels wonderful but more than anything, it aids with the stabilisation, balance and power of the body. The plank is more of a strength-building workout than a cardio activity, but if you manage to engage a variety of muscles, then it can also help you burn more calories.

3Dumbbell Press

dumbbell press

This workout engages the shoulder's deltoid muscle. The standing dumbbell overhead press targets the core for stability throughout the motion, in addition to improving shoulder strength. In everyday life, you may need to store goods on shelves above your head or your baggage in a plane's overhead compartment. This workout helps you gain the strength you need to do these jobs easily.

4Lunges

Lunges

A lunge is any position of the human body in which one leg is front with knee bent and foot flat on the ground while the other leg is behind. The lunge is a classic leg-strengthening exercise with several variants to keep your training interesting. The lunge is a multi-joint exercise that can help tone and improve several lower-body muscles. Lunges work on the glutes, quadriceps and hamstrings predominantly.

5Squats

Squats

A squat is a strength exercise in which the trainee lowers their hips from a standing position and then returns to a standing posture. When descending a squat, the hip and knee joints flex while the ankle joint dorsiflexes; when standing up, the hip and knee joints lengthen. Squats have several advantages, and while they improve various muscles, they mostly target the legs. Squats work your glutes (buttock muscles), which are important for power, core stability, and effective forward motion while running, walking, leaping, and skipping. 

6Burpees

Burpees

The burpee is a full-body strength-training exercise that consists of a squat thrust with an added stand in between repetitions. The action is primarily an anaerobic workout, but when repeated over a longer length of time, it may be used as an aerobic exercise. Burpees are a kind of callisthenics. This implies that they are using your body weight as resistance.

7Lateral Raises

lateral raises

The shoulder fly, also known as a lateral raise, exercises the shoulder's deltoid muscle. Strengthening your shoulder and upper back muscles helps build strength in your rear deltoids and upper body.  Strong deltoids will help your upper body look bigger, stronger, and more toned. This exercise will help you build stronger and wider shoulders, which is especially good if you have recurrent knots between your shoulder blades due to a desk job. It also reduces the size of your waist.

8Wall Squats

wall squats

The wall sit exercise works the muscles on the front of your thighs and is a great quad burner. The wall sit is frequently used to progressively improve pre-season leg strength for activities such as downhill skiing, ice hockey, track and field, jogging, and others. The wall sit improves muscular endurance, which helps athletes to function at their best for extended periods of time.

9Crunches

crunches

One of the most popular abdominal workouts is the crunch. It stimulates the rectus abdominis muscle. It enables for the formation of "six-pack" abs as well as the tightness of the stomach. Crunches use the exerciser's own body weight to tone muscle and are an absolute low-cost exercise that can very easily be done at home.

10Glute Bridge

Glute Bridge

A glute bridge is an exercise in which you lie on your back on the ground and thrust your hips upwards. It is a basic at-home workout that requires no equipment and can help to improve glute strength, core stability, and lower back health.
