Working out with your body weight is an efficient way to build lean body mass and increase your cardio capacity.

Squat thrusts (weight in your heels): 10 to 20 repetitions will increase your heart rate.

Stack planks (30 to 45 seconds): Use your entire body weight, mainly focusing on the core.

Pulse lunges with your arms out to the side: 15 repetitions each side, work the major muscles in your legs and the deltoids, triceps in the arms.

Repeat this program three to four times and you will have a full body workout, only using your body weight.
