Body weight exercises

Due to my continuing medical situation, and a (I hope temporary) relocation away from my gym I have to do the best I can with what is currently available.

Has anyone else see this list? http://dailyhealthpost.com/top-15-bo...-and-strength/

You wouldn't go wrong by doing the exercises in the link you provided.

If you just did..

Push ups
Pull ups
Squats
Burpees

You would be doing ok.

Of all of them, do squats. Deep, upright torso, squats.

Thanks for the encouragement. My heart situation is forcing me to make major changes to my routine; no more weighted squats is a major bummer.

Burpees with pushups? How high should I jump? It seems some folks are not jumping high at all, others say to "jump". I was hoping to attempt some 1 legged squats.

I would also add lunges to the above.

Reference manual

I'm on the road all the time. I can skip the usually dirty broken hotel equipment and do a workout from this book:

You are your own Gym, Mark Lauren. Gives you all the possibilities depending upon your fitness level in an easy to read and comprehend book, little to no extra equipment needed.

If you do enough burpees, it just becomes getting on the floor and getting back up. Jump an inch, doesn't matter.

Pistols are fun exercises. Difficult, but that is why the are fun.

I managed to achieve a few one legged, not pistol, squats. Cripes.

I did a few sets of two legged body weight leaning back. Cripes.

Burpees. Cripes.

This will not be fun but I dare say it will be effective and productive.

If DBD was still here he'd say "Never Gymless".

I am amazed at how much it effects my body to NOT use weights. I am actually a bit tired and sore which has not happened since the last time I used the VersaClimber.

Pistols popped into my mind when I was thinking of a squat movement.

Or 1 leg box squats.

I also (as a finisher) used to do chain suspended 1 leg squats.

Put a chain or rope around chest high afixed to a power rack, hold the chain like you are water skiing, take the tension out of it, then do a 1 leg squat. (like a pistol)

But the key is to sit way back into it, and use the chain to just keep you from falling over, not for assistance. This will keep your knee from shooting out over your toes, and you can go very deep this way.

I too was going to mention Ross's Never Gymless, but Jack saying DBrad saying it, beat me to it.

This about covers everything.

You can do variations of each for variety. (diamond pushups, pistols, burpees with a carp in your mouth)

Another bodyweight exercise I'm a fan of is inverted rows.
