Killer Bodyweight Exercises to Get In Shape

Straight Leg Raises

Lie on your back with your arms at your sides and your legs straight. Raise both legs at a 90-degree angle, then lower them slowly. Do 2 sets of 10 reps.

Marching Hip Raises

Lie on your back with your knees bent and your heels under your butt. Raise your hips to form a straight line between your knees and shoulders.

Then squeeze your butt and wrap around your core as you lift your bent foot up onto your hips. Put your foot back and repeat the same on the other side.

Kneeling Roundhouse Kick

Get on all fours, with your wrists below your shoulders and your knees at your hips. Raise your leg up and to the side until it is level with your hips.

Kick your foot to the side and slowly slide it back into place. Do the same on the other side.

Forearm Plank

Place your forearms under your shoulders, palms down. Place your legs hip-width apart and make sure your body forms a straight line.

Then slowly lift the core, wrapping the abdomen, and return to the starting position. You can quickly repeat or hold each position for 10 seconds.


Lie on your back, stretching your arms above your head. Inhale and slowly lift and bend your body at a 90-degree angle. Then slowly go back down. Do 3-5 sets of 15 reps.

Half Cobra Push-up
