Burpees, this simple and great exercise will tone up the entire body. This is simple, I like to start in a pushup position with straight arms. Perform a dip, then get up by pushing the body up now you should be standing straight. Perform a jump while stretching the arms up and keeping legs straight down. After the jump, hop back into the beginning position and repeat. In between the jump and dip you can add a squat if you like.
Pull-ups are just as simple and great and work on upper body strength without any weights. If you don’t have a place at home to perform then you might have to be creative or buy one. Or you can put your workout joggers and shirt on, and go to the nearby park. All you have to do is grip the bar firmly with your hands slightly wider than shoulder-width. Lock your legs so they don’t move to ruin the motion. Pull yourself up so that your chin is on level or above the bar. Hold the position for few seconds then lower yourself down slowly.
Remember to go completely up and come completely down i.e. arms completely straight. If they seem difficult you can take help from a resistant band.
