By MH Fitness Challenging your body doesn’t always require the use ofbars and weight plates – as MH readers have proved. We asked for your favourite adaptations of staple bodyweight moves, then selected the five most effective to create this workout. It engages your body from head to toe, with no need to set foot in the gym.
For the best results, perform three full circuits, resting for 90sec between each of them.
Hard – 30sec
A) Perform a dorsal raise: lie down, then lift your legs and chest up so you look like a skydiver in freefall. This stretches your abs and works your lower back.
B) Now roll over into a pike position, without letting your arms or legs touch the floor. This hits your obliques and forms an ab crunch to boot. Return to the skydive and repeat, keeping your limbs off the ground.
