Body weight is often all you need to get the job done. With the right routines, body weight exercise can bring out that deep rooted strength that lies in all of us. No weights, bars, or bands required. All legs, arms, feet, and hands.
This 5-minute routine will target your arms, legs and abs mainly, but the dynamic movements involved will strengthen so many more muscles. Keep pushing through these 5 minutes from beginning to end. You can easily squeeze this routine in any time of day, and with just 5 minutes for a full body routine, there are no reasons why you don’t have time to workout today. Get started and come out stronger in just 5 minutes!

What to Do: Review the workouts below and watch the videos to become familiarized with each exercise. Perform each exercise for 30 seconds and immediately jump into the next exercise. Once you finish the first circuit, jump right back into the first workout. Repeat two times. No rest needed! Perform this workout 3 times a week to strengthen your body weight routine. Also, please note, although some exercises start with your right or left you should always alternate which side you start with to distribute power in the muscles.
