Full Body Workout At Home
With Just One Exercise

Here, try this full body workout at home. It’s a very simple workout. You only need to do one exercise. No equipment. Do it anywhere.

This is perfect for when you’re travelling.

Here’s the demo video for this single exercise you need to do.

The exercise is well known as Burpees. (Not sure why it’s called that. Sounds a bit gassy to me.)



The exercise works your whole body. Your arms, shoulders, chest, back, stomach, buttocks and legs are all covered!

Do this move regularly if you want to firm up those areas. :-)

A Quick Run Down Of This Total Body Move

  1. Squat placing your palms on the floor.
  2. Kick your feet back to a push up position.
  3. Do one push up.
  4. Kick your feet forwards into the squat position.
  5. Jump (star jump).

A Few Things To Be Careful About

  • Tighten your stomach muscles while you’re doing the exercise.
  • Jump as high as you can in every repetition.
  • Do the exercise as fast as you can.
  • Oh … if you squat lower than I was doing in the video, that’s even better. In other words, if you can, squat until your buttocks are nearly touching your heels. That’ll firm up your buttocks and legs even more.

Now, this is the workout plan …

  1. Do as many Burpees as you possibly can until your arms and legs feel like they’re about to give way.
  2. Then rest for 30 seconds. Or 1 minute if it’s too hard.

Repeat this cycle. But every time you repeat it, do one less repetition than the previous round. Do this until you end up with having to do only one Burpee.

If you can take it, decrease the rest time by half in the last 5 to 10 rounds of this cycle.

I must warn you though ... 

You might have to groan during the workout. You might start to question why you’re bothering to do it in the first place. You might even be sore for a few days afterwards.

But it’s an effective and quick way to firm up your whole body. So, if you’re not afraid of a challenge, just suck it in and do it.

Workout Dosage?

You could do this workout once a week or so.

Every time you do it, increase the difficulty a bit more. Three obvious ways to do that: increase the repetitions or decrease the rest time. Or both.

There you go. I hope you enjoy this full body workout at home.
