I get frustrated when I read ‘no equipment’ workouts that require you to have two trees spaced exactly 13.5 metres apart, a sturdy chair and two 2.25 kilo bags of rice… I feel like it’s false advertising. But I will admit that working your upper body can be difficult without any equipment, so this workout focuses on the lower body, with some upper, core and total body exercises thrown in for good measure. You can do it in your lounge room, on the balcony, by the side of the road, or wherever takes your fancy. It’ll be over and done with in under 30 minutes but trust me, go hard the whole time and you’ll burn big calories!
So here it is, my version of the ‘no equipment’ workout! You’ll need – wait for it – precisely no equipment.
The No-Equipment Workout
12 squat jumps
12 push ups
24 lunge jumps (12/leg)
24 mountain climbers (12/leg)
24 squat with front kick (12/leg)
12 V sit-ups
100 high knees
(Repeat circuit 2-3 times)
The trick to this circuit is not to rest between exercises. You’re deliberately moving from floor to standing exercises, upper to lower to cardio, to shunt that blood around your body and burn the most calories possible. It’s only a short workout, so go as hard as you can and enjoy the feeling of utter exhaustion afterwards!
