When there’s a living room floor, who needs the gym?! Bodyweight exercises are a simple, effective way to improve your body’s balance, flexibility, and strength without any machinery. So just you and your floor – maybe an exercise mat to make you comfortable.

Here are some Bodyweight exercises you can do at home.

1. TUCK JUMP
How high can you go? Standing with the knees slightly bent, jump up as high as possible – knees to chest people! Land with the knees slightly bent and quickly jump (on it) again!

2. MOUNTAIN CLIMBER
Mountain climbers are calisthenic exercises that challenge your balance, agility, proprioception and coordination. Starting on your hands and knees, bring the left foot forward directly under the chest while straightening the right leg vice versa.

3. PLANK
Looks easily till you try it for the first time but is the best exercise you can do for your core. Lie face down with forearms on the floor and hands fisted. Extend the legs behind the body on your toes. While keeping the back straight and the core tightened. Feel the burn yet?

4. LUNGES
No pain, no gain till you have tried lunges. Stand with the hands on the hips and feet hip-width apart. Step your right leg forward and slowly lower body until left (back) knee is close to or touching the floor and bent at least 90 degrees. Return to the starting position and repeat on the other side.

5. SQUAT
Every girl’s (not) fun way of achieving a well defined and uplifting butt. Stand with the feet parallel or turned out 15 degrees—whatever is most comfortable. Slowly start to crouch by bending the hips and knees until the thighs are at least parallel to the floor. Make sure the heels do not rise off the floor. Press through the heels to return to a standing position.
