At home bodyweight exercises


Question: As a female personal trainer in Abu Dhabi who is familiar with bodyweight training exercises can you list what you think are the 10 top body weight workouts which can be done at home. Also, how does each of these work and what benefits does it provide?


Push up / press up


These are beneficial for building upper body strength. Likewise they work the triceps, pectoral muscles, and shoulders. Additionally, when done with proper form, they can also strengthen the lower back and core by engaging (pulling in) the abdominal muscles. Pushups are a fast and effective exercise for building strength.


Air squats


Help to build both a solid strength foundation and balance in your lower body. Equally important they target your thighs, hamstrings, quadriceps, and glutes in particular, helping you to add muscle mass in these areas. Because balance is necessary, air squatscan also engage your core.




Lunges help to improve the balance and both works both side of the body, good for toning the legs, hips flexibility and it works the core as well.

Pull ups
