This is a simple bodyweight workout that’s good for everyone from beginners to advanced athletes. The difficulty of the exercises and intensity of the workout is totally up to you. In the video, I’ll show you how to adjust for your ability and fitness level.

This workout only requires a little free space and your own body – you don’t need any equipment! That means there’s no reason to skip your workout today. You can do this one outside, in the gym, in your office, or in your living room (like me).

Simple Bodyweight Workout

There are only three exercises in this workout: squats, push-ups, and tuck jumps. If you’ve never received coaching on these movements, please watch this video thoroughly so you can learn proper form. Good form will help you get stronger and fitter while avoiding injury.

5 rounds:

  1. 10 squats
  2. 10 push-ups
  3. 10 tuck jumps

Do this “for time,” but to your ability level. So if you’re new to working out, take a short break at the end of each round to catch your breath. If you’re an intermediate, try to do all five rounds as quickly as possible with no break and record your time. If you’re an advanced athlete, try ten rounds straight through!

The Whole Life Challenge helps you become a healthier, happier person in eight short weeks. You’ll experience personal growth, improved physical (and mental) health, and a new understanding of what it truly means to care for yourself. Even better, you’ll be supported by friends, family, and teammates the entire time. Click below to learn more.

    This video was fabulous. I saw the list and IMMEDIATELY told myself, I can’t do squats with my knees. Not doing this. Then I watched the video and guess what? He just gave me the ability to do squats and maybe, just maybe…my knees will get stronger and I can eventually go back to doing regular squats. Good on you WLC. Really, thanks.
