Hit Your Legs, Core & Rear with This 30-Minute Bodyweight Workout
Workout your legs, core, and bum with this full-body, intermediate-level workout. It trains all your large muscle groups. This workout strengthens and builds your muscles.
The workout is based on the classic muscle building system. Depending which muscles are being targeted, you’ll do between 10 and 20 repetitions of each exercise. You train in sets. Do all the sets of one exercise (there are 7 in total) before moving on to the next exercise. This is station training. After each set, take a break of up to 60 seconds. When you have completed all of the sets in one exercise, you move on to the next one. The last exercise is a hold exercise that you hold for 60 seconds.
If the plank on the elbows is too easy for you, you can do a plank on your hands or a military plank.
Always make sure that your exercise is clean and controlled and keep your body under tension.
Warm up well before you start training! Have fun with our workout.

The glutes and other muscles in your backside also benefit from this exercise. Stand with your feet hip-width apart and turn your toes slightly towards the outside. Bring the back of your thighs down behind you and your arms to the front. Only go low enough that you can keep tension in your back. Use the strength of your legs to push yourself back up to standing.
