As a mom of two littles, I have come to the conclusion that body weight workouts need to be my back up plan for working out. It never fails that at least once a month, my plans to hit up the gym get bombarded with an errand, a sleepy kid or some random “to-do”. And because I prefer to workout in the gym, I need to always have a back up plan.
You might wonder why I don’t just workout from home anyway primarily. To be honest, I hate it. Yes it may have its conveniences but its just not the same. I don’t go as hard, I don’t do as much and its not my workout vibe. However, it is my back up option when push comes to shove and I need to get a body weight sweat sesh in! If you are ever in a pinch and miss the gym or maybe just getting started to the fitness game and looking for some simple yet effective no equipment workouts, then I’ve got 4 good options for you!
