Some people believe that workouts with complicated movements are more effective when trying to get fit. According to trainer Diana Mitrea, basic bodyweight-only exercises are all you need to get results. She has developed a 10 minute routine for beginners that can be done anywhere and recommends you grab a pal to cheer you on. The workout does not require any equipment because it uses your own bodyweight. It also only comprises squats, push-ups, planks, and jumping jacks, but engages all areas of the body for a good general workout.
- Start in high plank position with your wrists under your shoulders and abs tight.
- Moving through these common—but extremely effective exercises—will help you become more aware of your form, and it will set you up for more challenging variations as you get stronger.
- Grab a pal and do the workout together. It’ll be more fun when you have someone sweating (and cheering!) with you. Don’t forget to save the pin at the bottom for easy reference, too.
