There are hundreds upon hundreds of workouts, but there are a few body-weight workouts that have proved the test of time. In my mind these are some of the best workouts you can do for your body. They not only target specific areas, but they also give a full body workout that can really give you some great results.
Push-ups – There are many ways to do push ups, and the more you do the better. Push ups are great for building upper body strength, but they are also great for building strength in your core. Feel free to do many varieties of push ups, you can do standard, military, wide, diamond, and even one armed push ups. You can always challenge yourself by trying to beat your previous records, and the great thing about push ups, is that you can do them anywhere you go.
Pull-ups – Depending on which type of pull up bar that you have, you may be able to do different types of pull ups. If you have a straight bar, then you may be limited to a few different pull ups. You can do palms facing you or you can do palms facing away from you. You may also do a towel pull up, where you can either hang two towels and grip them with your palms, or you can hang one towel, griping one hand on the towel and the other on the bar. If you have a pull up bar with multiple handles there are many other workouts you can do. You can even workout your abs if you get the elbow slings, which attach to the bar.
Burbees – This workout is one of my favorites, it is a total body workout from head to toe. This workout can even get your heart rate up very quickly. Burpess mainly workout your upper body and your legs, but it is great at involving your whole body, every major muscle group is worked out in this exercise. A great little challenge for anyone would to do the 100 burpee challenge. Try to work your way up to doing 100 burpees in a row.
Performing these workouts consistently is a great way to get your body into shape and get that really nice muscle tone to your body. You can even add weight to these workouts if you wear some type of weighted vest.
