5 bodyweight exercises for busy women

Belly fat is probably the number one reason for thousands of people to start with exercises and healthy diet. However, some of us simply don’t have the time to go to the gym three times per week and to prepare healthy foods at the same time. Balancing work and exercises can be very difficult (especially if you have kids) and that is why lots of people stop doing exercises or don’t even begin.

There is a simple solution for this problem – do the exercises at home. You don’t have to buy expensive equipment, in fact, we have chosen five different exercises that should help you lose belly fat and you can do it at home:

Squat

Squat is a very simple, but at the same time very effective exercise. Women around the world do this exercise every day, because it gives great results in short period of time. The great thing about this workout is that it challenges some of the most important muscles in the body and it helps strengthen your core. Furthermore, you burn more calories while performing a squat, than many other exercises and it targets glutes better than most of the exercises that you can do at home.

Burpee

Burpee is a really demanding exercise and is probably one of the exercises with the most variations. The good thing about burpee is that you don’t need any special equipment and you can do it everywhere. Experts say that the burpee is a great way to challenge the whole body, but to be careful, because they can be real strain on the muscles. However, the only real problem with burpees is that you have to be really careful while doing it and it is not recommended for everyone – it would be the best that you have some previous experience with bodyweight training, before starting regularly doing burpees.

Spiderman push up

Everyone knows push ups. There is no person in the world that started working out, that didn’t try doing at least one push up. The reason for the popularity of this workout is the fact that it does not need any equipment and it is very effective for the muscles that it targets. However, although there are thousands of variations, one is especially interesting – Spiderman push ups – which targets muscles in the upper body, core and lower body – practically the whole body.

Pull up (basic)

Of all the workouts on this list, the pull up is probably the hardest. The problem is doing it properly, because it can be very tricky. However, if you can do at least one pull up, you will challenge lots of muscles in the core and the upper body.

Lunge (forward)

Lunge is a great and a simple workout, that it is not hard in the beginning, but as you progress and start doing more and more repetitions, you can see how difficult it can be. Quads are targeted with this exercise and glutes are also challenged. Make sure that you don’t lose balance while doing it!
