Top Gym-Free Exercises

alexander lakhanpal nyFor those of us living in an urban environment, space can come at a real premium. Because of that, it can sometimes be challenging to find a space in our own homes or apartments where we can exercise without accidentally knocking something over, or angering our downstairs neighbors. While a gym membership provides a great alternative to trying to workout in your home, during these warm summer months, it may be a breath of fresh air to take your gym routine outside.

While this circuit is challenging, it’s by no means impossible. Strive for your own personal best. As you get stronger , gradually increase the number of sets that you do for each move.

The Routine

Pullups : Do four sets of ten repetitions. Rest for twenty seconds or less between each of these sets…preferable less! Follow this up with two minutes of jump rope.
