Using your own body weight to achieve fitness goals

Moves you can use: Squat thrusts, stacked planks and standing leg lunges.

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.
