You might not have the time to go to the gym right now or you don’t like going to the gym at all but still want to exercise, what can you do?

Why not exercise at home?

If you’re too busy, don’t worry. These easy at home exercises will help you stay fit without having to go to the gym. And you don’t need any equipment for these.

Interested? Let’s start our list of easy at home exercises.

Bodyweight Squat

This is just like normal squats but you have to go as far as you can. To start, spread your feet slightly wider than your shoulders.

Now, hold your arms out at shoulder level parallel to the floor. Then, lower your body as far as you can by bending your knees and pushing your hips back while keeping your torso as upright as possible.

Pause and push yourself back to the starting position. Repeat 15 to 20 times.

Knee Push-ups

This is a great exercise for beginners but enough to keep you fit if done on a daily basis.

Start by laying down looking at the floor. Keep your hands parallel to your chest. Then, lift your torso. Keep your back straight with your knees touching the ground and feet lifted. Repeat 15 to 20 times.

Hip Raise

Lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Now, then place your arms out with your palms facing up.

Make your tummy as skinny as possible and keep your core tight. From here, squeeze your glutes and raise your hips. Pause and go back to the starting position. Do 15 to 20 repetitions.


One of the best calorie burning exercises is planking. This exercise engages several muscles at once and is great at strengthening your core.

To start, place your forearms on the floor. Your elbows should be aligned below your shoulders and your arms should be parallel to your body at shoulder width. You can choose to clasp your hands together or do flat palms.

Keep your back straight and your glutes squeezed. If you’re starting, hold this position for 30 seconds for the first two weeks. From here, gradually lengthen the time until you can make it to 1 minute.

Cross Jacks

This one of my favorite fun and easy exercises at home. Start by standing straight with your feet shoulder-width apart. Then, jump and cross your arms above your head. At the same time, cross your feet.

Repeat 15 to 20 times.

Crunches are easy to do at home. To start, lie down on your back with your knees bent and your feet hip-width apart. Place your hands across your chest.

Inhale and contract your abs. Then, exhale and lift your upper body. Your head and neck should be relaxed. Inhale and return to the original position. Do this for 15 to 20 repetitions.
