Squats

Squats are an all-time favorite because they are simple; fun to do and can be done anywhere. To do them the right way, stand with both your feet placed at hip-distance from each other. Hands should be placed behind your head with the elbows sticking out. Keep your torso in an upright position and gradually sit back with your weight resting on the heels. Position both knees parallel to each other and pointing outward.

From this position, rise up by pushing against the ground with both legs. Squats are extremely effective in toning your hamstrings, quads and abdominal muscles.

Pushups

A pushup is a complete body workout that works wonders in shaping your physique. To do this exercise, position your body above the ground in the plank position. Rest your weight on your arms which should be placed on the ground at shoulder-width distance. Stretch your legs and place toes firmly on the ground to give your more stability. Keep legs apart and clench your butt muscles.

Lower yourself gradually from this rigid pose till your chest just grazes the ground and your elbows are bent at an angle of ninety degrees. Exhale and rise up slowly to the initial plank position.

Lunges

If you are trying out lunges for the first time, let a personal trainer show you how to do the stationary lunge first. To do the stationery lunge, step out forward with both hands at the hip or placed behind your head. Keep your torso firm and upright and lower your hips till your knees are bent at an angle of ninety degrees. Exhale and raise the hips till you are once again in the standing position.

Frog Jumps

This is a wonderful workout that conditions your entire body while giving you bursts of energy. To do these jumps, position yourself in the regular squat stance. However place both feet wider that you would usually do for your squats. Keeping a straight spine, place both hands on the ground with the fingertips pressing in. Place your weight on the heels and push against them to jump up high in a sudden movement.

While jumping, keep both hands extended above your head. Land softly on the balls of your feet and transfer your weight gradually to the heels.
