3 Bodyweight Exercises for Any Occasion

3 Bodyweight Exercises for Any Occasion

Bored at work? Stuck at the airport? Feel like doing something besides vegging?

Fitness influencer Katie Austin has the answer: use your own weight for a fast workout you can do anytime, anywhere.

All you’ll need to get your heart pumping and blood flowing is, well, yourself, and these three go-to moves:

Standing obliques

Position your feet a little further than shoulder-width apart, and with hands next to your ears so your elbows stick out to the sides, raise your right knee up while bringing your right elbow down. Do this for 10 seconds, and be sure to engage your abdomen. Switch sides and repeat.

Squat and booty lift


Starting with feet shoulder-width apart, lower into a squat position. Push off of your heels, and as you stand, straighten your left leg behind you. Return to your standing position and repeat, now straightening your right leg behind you. Alternate like this for 30 seconds.

One-legged knee push-up

Lower your body into a push-up position with knees on the ground. Now, raise a leg up, and extend it in a straight line behind you. Next, bend your elbows, and lower your chest to the ground. Push back up, repeat. Do this move for 10 seconds on each side.
