Tricep push-ups are done with your elbows right next to your rib cage (no, I don't have oddly deformed arms). They hurt!1. Use what your mama gave you. Bodyweight exercises are used by everyone from MMA fighters to the military to prisoners and they go far beyond the standard push-up. Sit-ups, jumping jacks, squats, mountain climbers, crab walks, high knees and burpees (which very well might make you burp up breakfast) are just the tip of the iceberg. And don't forget how fun dancing is - turn up your favorite tunes and go crazy!
Multitasking - doing a wall sit and finding a recipe for dinner!2. Take advantage of your environment. Got stairs? Run them or jump them. Trying standing at the bottom and jumping up, adding an additional stair each time until you've reached your max. Use a wall for wall-sits, wall push-ups and donkey kicks. Use a parking lot by picking a distant stall and zig-zagging or hopping between each line on your way in. (If people ask, tell them you're practicing the duck-n-cover for your FBI final.) A playground is the perfect place for all kinds of exercises - check back in two weeks for my post Workouts for People With No Childcare for more on this!
