There is no need to spend money on a gym membership as you have everything you need to get fit. One of the biggest fitness trends in 2014 is strength training without weights. Here are a few Home Workout Routines Without Weights that will help you drop the weight and get fit.
1. Planking. The plank works the entire front side of the body and helps to tone your muscles and works the core like no other exercise. Getting into the Plank position easy as you just lay down on the floor and then come up onto your forearms and toes. You can do this with or without shoes on. Create a straight line from your neck down to your feet and make sure your butt does not arch down and hold your stomach in engaging your core muscles. Keep this taunt plank position for 30 seconds, relax for 30 seconds and do it again 3 times. The goal is to be able to hold this for two minutes.
2. Burpees. This is one of the hardest exercises to do but will burn a ton of calories, plus it tones every muscle in your body. To begin, stand upright and then drop down to the ground into a push-up position. Do one push up and then bring your legs back to your body and then jump up with your arms reaching high into the sky, then come back down from the jump into a standing position. Can you believe that was just one rep? Start doing 3 sets of 5 burpees and when you are stronger do 3 sets of 10 burpees. Rest for a minute in between each set.
