Reverse Lunges, 6 reps per side
Reverse lunges help strengthen your hips and thighs. They are simple and target each leg individually for more balance and stability.
How to: Stand with your feet hip-width apart. Take a long step back — so your knees make two 90-degree angles at the bottom — and pull yourself back up with your forward leg. Start without dumbbells and advance to dumbbells, a barbell og resistance bands in either the back squat or front squat position.
Lateral Split Squats, 6 reps per side
By doing your squats side-to-side, you can build more strength in each leg than with regular squats while also targeting different muscles of your body
How to: Start with a very wide stance and your feet straight. Sit back into one hip and push that knee out. Repeat on the other side.
Pushups, 10 reps
This is the best bodyweight exercise for your upper body: It builds a strong chest, shoulders, arms and your abs.
How to: Get in a pushup position with your hands about shoulder-width apart. Keep your lower back flat and don’t let your hips sag. Lower yourself and keep your elbows close to your body as you descend. This exercise works great with resistance bands over your shoulder and down to each hand.
Hip Bridges, 10 reps
If you want a nice-looking backside and strong legs and, look no further than hip bridges. They’re a simple way to strengthen your glutes and can even help release lower-back tension.
How to: Lie on the ground with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Drive through your heels and squeeze your glutes to push your hips up. Repeat. Do not use your lower back to pull yourself up. Fasten a resistance band to each foot, and over your hips to get more resistance.
