I’m a huge fan of bodyweight exercises. I can do some of these, but nearly as many as I would like. I’m always amazed at the variety and simplicity of these exercises. Well, they might be hard to execute, but most of them just require you and your body!

If you’re looking to get started with an exercise routine that doesn’t require expensive equipment or a gym membership, I heartily recommend You Are Your Own Gym by Mark Lauren. I’ve been doing the program for almost two years now and I never dreamed of gaining the strength I have now. Makes me wish I’d known about a program like this a long time ago.
