Exercises to Do anywhere

Here are 6 exercises that you can do literally anywhere. You can do them when you are away on holiday, no equipment needed, make them into a circuit routine and build up to 3 sets.

Exercises to Do anywhere – Plank

This exercise will work right down deep into your core, what you want to aim to do is start on a 30 second hold then build up to 45 seconds and then up to a minute.

To do the plank: Place your forearms on the floor with your elbows directly below your shoulders, making sure that your bodyweight is all on your shoulders and forearms, your legs should be straight out behind and your whole body should form a straight line. Engage your core by sucking your bellybutton into your back and hold this position for at least 30 seconds.


Legs should be hip distance apart, roll your weight onto your toes then back onto your heels, do this a couple of times and then keep the weight predominately on your heels, stick your bottom out behind you keeping your back straight, then bend your knees as if you are going to sit down.  Keep your knees and toes pointing forward the lower into the squat you get make sure your knees do not go over your toes (this puts too much pressure on your knees). Once you have made it down drive back up to standing squeezing your thighs, glutes and abs.


Keep your upper body straight with your core muscles nice and tight, shoulders back step forward with one leg, lowering your hips until both knees are bent at about a 90 degree angle.

Reverse Crunch

Starting position lie on a mat with your shoulders relaxed into the floor, keeping your eyes fixed on a point on the ceiling, bring your knees in towards your chest keeping them tight in towards your stomach. Draw your bellybutton in as if you are trying to reach your back and then release, repeat slowly. This should only be a small movement if you are rocking back and forward then you are using your legs too much.

Knee Raises

Standing tall with legs hip distance apart, clasp hands in front and have your arms out in front of your chest, raise your right knee up in front of your body to waist height then change legs, repeat with alternate legs.

Mountain climbers

Begin in a press up position with your weight forward on your shoulders, your legs are straight out behind you and you should be resting on the tops of your toes. Bring your right leg up towards your right elbow and then extend behind you again, repeat this on the left leg. This exercise should be done explosively, so each leg is drawn in and out at a fast pace.

There you have it 6 exercises that can be done anywhere, I would suggest that you start slow at first and do 1-15 reps of each exercise all the way through take a rest of about 30 seconds and then repeat.  Once you have accomplished this a few times build up to doing 3 times through.
