You love going to the gym. But sometimes life gets busy and you just want to sweat the reception. (Or sometimes an epidemic hits and you have to sweat the reception.) Now is the time to embrace your body weight, no, really. Since most people don’t have a squat rack next to the china cabinet, bodyweight exercises are great thanks to toning, tensing, and even strengthening our muscles without leaving the house or lifting a weight.
But won’t lifting weights make me stronger? Certainly not. Non-equipment exercises are great for people of all fitness levels because they can be tailored to your specific needs. Beginners should get used to new exercises when practicing proper form and technique in a healthy environment. Advanced users should increase reps or minimize rest time to keep the exercise challenging. Bodyweight exercises, which incorporate cardio and strength training to stimulate muscle growth while increasing your pulse, are also a key component of HIIT workouts. A 2018 study by Experimental Gerontology confirmed that high-intensity bodyweight training produces similar changes in muscle mass, physical performance, and metabolic health compared to resistance training. So yes, you will continue to build strong, sexy muscles without “lifting weights.”
To get the most out of his training without equipment, Luke Zocchi, a certified personal trainer (and the person behind Chris Hemsworth’s Thor-level muscles), says that he specializes in compound movements. “He’ll get the most out of the time and energy you put into it,” he says, “and it’ll help you build your core strength faster by hitting multiple muscle groups directly.” A squat, for example, can be a compound exercise because it targets the quads, glutes, hamstrings, hips, and core. “Without weights, these movements are great for toning,” he explains. However, if he is looking to gain weight, dumbbells, kettlebells, and ankle weights can add additional resistance to any bodyweight movement.
Created (and tested) by Zocchi and thus the other trainers behind the fitness Centr app here can be a ten-step workout, without equipment, that combines compound exercises with high-intensity cardio to burn the whole body. You’ll follow each move for a full 60 seconds, but feel happy that you can regulate your rest time according to your current fitness level. Complete two full rounds with a minute rest between them and confirm that you have a towel nearby (because you are about to break a sweat).
There are ten different types of workouts:
- Work your quads, glutes, hamstrings, hip flexors, and core.
Step 1: Stand shoulder-width apart with your feet slightly wider than your shoulders. Lie back in your chair, as if it were an imaginary chair. Hold your chest up and your gaze forward while sending your ass down.
Step 2: Put your arms in front of you for balance and lower yourself until your thighs are parallel to the ground. Return your weight to your feet, keeping your knees from extending past your toes. If that’s the case, expand your perspective.

Step 1: Lay down on the floor with your arms and legs spread out in front of you. Take the top and bottom halves off the ground using your core.
Step 2: Begin rocking back and forth, raising your bottom shoulders as your legs descend and backward, maintaining your big U shape. Keep the heart and glutes engaged in the movement to keep it under control.
