Simple Workouts to Get in Shape for Summer

Summertime brings back to us the excitement of resuming most of the activities we had put on hold. The gyms are filled up and most of us find it difficult to get access. We remember our bikinis and the thought to slim down and stay fit runs through our minds once again. However, you don’t have to wait for the gyms to have our workouts strategies. You can practice exercises without using the equipment.

Bridge Marches

First, lie facing up and bend your knees and keep both feet flat on the floor with your hands laid on your sides. Then keep your hips raised until your body is in a straight line from your shoulders down to the knees. Your gluts should be actively involved in the process. Then one after the other, lift a knee to the chest while you keep your hip raised. Do the same with the other knee until you have done it 15 times on each knee.

Slow Bicycles

To practice this exercise, lie face up and keep your knees bent to about 90 degrees which will make your legs stay parallel to the floor. Your hands should be behind your head as a support to the neck. Then lift your shoulders from the floor and keep them in that place until the exercise is over. List and twist your chest slowly to the right knee and stretch the left leg at the same time. Go back to the first position and repeat the same exercise with your left knee. Repeat each leg for 15 times.

Spiderman Pushup

Place your body in the normal pushup posture with your hands placed wider than your body but in line with the shoulders. When you moved down your body to the floor, raise your right foot and move it sideways. Try to use the elbow to touch your knee. Go back to the first posture again and repeat the same movements with your left leg. The exercise should be done 15 times on each leg.

Single-Leg Squats

This exercise should be repeated for at least 15 times on each of your legs. First, stay on your feet as tall as your body can stand. Lift your left leg off the floor and keep your arms on the sides of your body. Next, move your knees back and raise you’re the left knee as you lower your body to a squat while keeping the right foot off the floor. Stretch your arms to keep yourself in balance. Concentrate your energy on your left leg to keep yourself standing for a while. As mentioned before, do it 15 times on each foot.


Stand on your feet as tall as you can on your right leg and keep your left leg off the floor. Move back your hips and keep your right knee bent while your toes point forward. Your chest should be pushed out as you make attempts to move your foot to the floor and then quickly move to your left leg. Repeat the same exercise with your left leg 15 times, too.
