Bodyweight Workouts Are Easy, Cheap and Effective
You don’t need a gym. You don’t need any weights. You don’t need an app (although they are available).
All you need is your own body and a small amount of space.
Adaptability is what makes a bodyweight workout system so good: It’s adjustable to almost anyone, from the least fit to the professional athlete. Just learn the basics and try different approaches until you find what works best for you. If you get bored doing the same thing all the time, you can vary your workout. As your strength and endurance develop, you can modify the program. It’s the ultimate personalized system—as if you had your own personal trainer. And in fact, you do… yourself!

If you only have time to for one exercise, do the burpee. The burpee is a bodyweight exercise developed by Dr. Royal H. Burpee. It’s both aerobic and anerobic, and provides both strength and cardiovascular workouts in one exercise. Doing burpees can shorten exercise time because it burns 50% more fat in short bursts. Like other bodyweight exercises, there are burpee variations that can make it easier or harder, depending on your requirements. All you need to know about it, including step-by-step instructions and a video demonstrating the burpee and variations can be seen on this website: https://fitness.mercola.com/sites/fitness/archive/2012/05/18/burpee-strength-training-exercise.aspx along with all sorts of fun facts about it.
