8 bodyweight exercises that strengthen and define your entire body

Push-Ups: Great for building upper body strength, push-ups work the chest, shoulders, and triceps. Modify them by doing knee push-ups or incline push-ups against a raised surface if needed.

Squats: Squats target the quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes, and lower back. Keep your feet hip-width apart, lower your body as if sitting in a chair, and push back up.

Lunges: Lunges work the legs, including the quadriceps, hamstrings, and glutes. Take a step forward, bend both knees to a 90-degree angle, and return to the starting position.

Planks: Planks engage the core, back, and shoulder muscles. Hold a push-up position with your elbows on the ground and your body in a straight line for as long as you can.

Burpees: A full-body exercise that combines squats, push-ups, and jumps. Start in a standing position, drop into a squat, kick your feet back into a plank

Mountain Climbers: These dynamic exercises work the core, shoulders, and legs. Start in a plank position

Bicycle Crunches: Lie on your back, bring one knee to your chest while simultaneously twisting your torso to bring the opposite elbow towards it.

Supermans: Lie face down with your arms and legs extended. Lift your chest, arms, and legs off the ground simultaneously, engaging the lower back and glutes.
