56 Bodyweight exercises you can do anywhere
Probably one of the most popular lower body exercises – loaded or not. Standing tall, take a step forward with one foot and bend your knees simultaneously. Keep your torso upright and back straight. Drive through your front heel to return back to starting position.
12. Reverse lunge
Just like the name suggests – it’s like a regular lunge but instead of stepping forward, you step backward. Possibly one of my most favorite lower body exercises ever.
13. Side Lunge
Standing tall with a narrow stance step to the side, bend your knee and shift your weight on the side-stepping leg. The stationary leg stays straight and to the side – you can lift your toes up in the air and only tough the ground with your heel. Drive through the heel of your bent leg and return to starting position.
14. Jumping lunges
As with any other plyometric exercise, make sure you have sufficient body control to be able to perform them safely. Practice regular lunges first before trying out jumping lunges.
15. Bulgarian split squat
The Bulgarian split squat is very much like your regular split squat – the only difference is that your back leg is elevated. This makes the movement far more challenging as this adds extra weight for you to lift up. Try to use your back leg only for balance and drive your weight with the front leg only.
