The Anywhere Bodyweight Workout
By Ann Affinito, Renaissance ClubSport Walnut Creek Elite Personal Trainer
Whether you’re on a boat or in a plane, or in a hotel room in the middle of nowhere, work up a good sweat with this REV32-inspired bodyweight workout that can be done almost anywhere. No equipment is necessary and a mat is optional. This simple five-exercise pyramid routine starts off light, but quickly steps up the difficulty with each progressing round as you increase your reps. You’ll hit legs, arms, and abs, possibly feel sore, and definitely come back to this workout for more.
Start with 5 reps of each exercise and increase by 5 reps per round until you get to 25 reps per exercise.
1. Squat to Step Out Squat
2. Push-up to Side Plank
3. Hollow Rock
5. Burpee with a High Low Plank to Alternating Leg Lift
