Did you know that you can just mimic animals to get more inspiration for your next set of home workouts without equipment?
If you’re fond of watching martial artists or trying to be one yourself, you would know just how most of their moves are inspired by animals.
So, if you wish to add some fun, uniqueness, and variety to your body weight routines, then you should probably mimic animals, too.
Excited? Here’s how you can do your home workouts without using any equipment—just your body weight.
5 Exercises For Your Home Workouts Without Equipment
I’m giving you the quick list right here. In a second, I’ll get to these one by one. For now, just take note that you may already do a quick workout by dedicating 30 seconds to a minute for each of these—and then doing the circuit twice.
- crab reaches
- beast crawl
- bird dogs
- side lunges
- transverse lunges
Well, the last two don’t seem to be animal-inspired. For that matter, let’s just say these are functional movements we humans would naturally do under certain situations.
Do these to help tone your abs and hips.
To tone your abs and chest, crawl forward and crawl backward like a beast like this.
The bird dog is really great for abs.
I’ve once featured this exercise in a fun but fat-burning bodyweight workout right here. Go ahead and take a look!
The side lunges would look like you trying to catch an incoming tennis ball, while the transverse lunge is just the crossover reverse lunge I’ve already covered.
