NO EQUIPMENT. QUICK. EFFECTIVE.
That’s the name of the game around here lately. Especially working from home with both kids right now.

It’s performed AMRAP (as many rounds as possible) style. Meaning you work at your own pace to see how many times you can complete all six bodyweight exercise in 10-minutes.
In the workout video above I complete just over 4 rounds of this bodyweight circuit workout. You can try and match my pace or move at your own pace.
Note, this workout video doesn’t include a warm up; I suggest starting with this 5-Minute Warm Up for At Home Workouts before starting this workout.

The workout alternates bodyweight strength exercises (low impact exercises) with bodyweight cardio exercises (high impact exercises).
The result, an effective full body, bodyweight workout. Done in 10 minutes.
Let me be your certified personal trainer for the day and coach you through these 6 bodyweight exercises:
INSTRUCTIONS: Follow along with the workout video at the top of this post. Or follow the below instructions:
Complete 10 repetitions per exercise; moving directly from the low impact exercise (air squat) to the high impact exercise (squat jump).
Move one, air squats, a low impact exercise that targets the lower body — legs, butt, thighs, hamstrings and quads.
Air squats are great for building glute strength, the foundation of your lower body and muscles you use daily as you sit down and stand up.
Move two, jump squats, a higher impact exercise that targets the power generating muscles in the lower body — legs, butt, hamstrings, quads and calves.
Jump squats are a powerful HIIT exercise to build lower body strength, specifically for the glutes, while also raising your heart rate to burn calories and fat.
Move three, high plank knee pulls, a challenging full body exercise that targets the core, obliques and shoulders.
High plank knee pulls are great way to improve posture and balance as well as strengthen your core and increase muscle definition.
Move four, Everest climbers, increases the intensity of a standard high plank for a full body challenge — abs, obliques, shoulders, triceps, hips, glutes, and quads.
Everest climbers strengthen your core while raising your metabolic heart rate to burn calories.
Move five, push ups, a classic bodyweight exercise for building upper body strength; targeting the chest, triceps, shoulders, core and lower back.
Push ups are a fast and effective way build muscle definition in the arms and abs. Simultaneously building upper body strength and core strength.
Move six, chest-to-floor burpees, a favorite bodyweight exercise for high intensity interval training (HIIT). This is a full body exercise targeting EVERY muscle in your entire body — from the arms, chest, and back to the glutes and core!
Burpees are also a sure fire way to spike your heart rate. A great calisthenics exercise that burns anywhere from 10-15 calories per minute of work.
