5 Exercises You Can Do at Home

Finding time to exercise is hard enough as it is. If you’re not a member of a gym and you don’t have any of the equipment, it’s even harder. Here are 5 exercises you can do from the comfort of your own home – no experience, membership fee or fancy equipment needed.

Tricep dip
Whether you use the sofa, the frame of your bed or a chair, this one is guaranteed to get to work on the bingo wings. With your back to whatever you’re using, place your hands on the edge facing forward and your legs out in front of you, with your knees bent. Lower yourself towards the floor and use your triceps to pull you back up again, making sure your elbows are straight behind you and not leaning out to one side. You can straighten the legs to make this harder. Repeat 15 times.

Jumping squat
If you want to achieve the peachy, round behind that’s all the rage right now, this is the one for you. Place your feet shoulder width apart and sit down into a squat, making sure your knees don’t lean forward over your toes. Jump upwards and land softly back down into a squat for another 10.

Mountain climbers
This one is great for working lots of different muscles including the quads and obliques. Get into a plank position, ensuring your body is in a straight line and your hips are tucked under. Then bring your knees in towards your chest, alternating one leg at a time for 30 reps.

Hip raise
Another one for the glutes. Lie on the floor with your knees bent and your arms out at a 45 degree angle. Raise your hips towards the ceiling, keeping your core engaged and squeezing the glutes at the top before lowering again. Do this 20 times.

Side plank
The evil step sister of the regular plank but a great way to work your core! Lie on one side with your legs out straight and lift your body up to rest on your elbow. You can either hold this position for 30 seconds or raise and lower your body 20 times. Repeat on both sides.
