I wanted to put together a fun, full-body bodyweight workout so you can get a great workout anywhere, without equipment.  This bodyweight workout routine has the best bodyweight exercises for women.

It’s quick, great for all skill levels, and targets all of the major muscle groups which means higher calorie burn for you.

I love to create my bodyweight workouts so they get the best results in the least amount of time…

I’m all about working smart, not hard.  So make sure you follow the workout instructions to get the most out of this bodyweight routine.

 

 

 

BODYWEIGHT WORKOUT

 

I love doing this quick bodyweight workout when I travel or don’t feel like going to the gym.  It’s great to use during the holidays, too.

First, warm up with some light cardio and stretches.  Run in place, do jumping jacks or walk for 5 – 10 minutes.

Do each exercise until you feel the burn.  Once you feel the burn, do 5 more then stop.  Ideally, you’ll max out at 30 reps.

Do each exercise 1 time to complete one set.

Do 3 full sets to complete this workout.
