Here are a set of exercises you can start right away that will completely transform your body in just 4 weeks. Save money on the gym or buying special gym equipment. All you need to get you going is just some willpower and 10 minutes daily.

7 Simple Exercises To Get In Shape Fast

Exercise 1 – Push-ups

Push-ups are perfect for exercising your chest and arms. In order to do a pushup correctly:

  • Place your hand’s chest width apart
  • Lower your arms until your upper arm is parallel to the floor
  • Push back up to the original position

Exercise 2 – Plank

Planks are an amazing exercise to tone your glutes, back and arms! It only takes 60 seconds a day (if you can’t do 60 seconds work your way up with the plank challenge!) and is super easy. To do a proper plank:

  • Cross your hands together
  • Place your elbows about shoulder width apart under your chest
  • Curl in your tail bone to straighten your back
  • Hold for up to 60 seconds

Exercise 3 – Squats

In order to do a perfect squat:

  • Keep your feet flat on the ground
  • Ensure your knees are behind your toes
  • Your hips should be below the top of your knee
  • Don’t round your upper back
  • Keep your chest up

Exercise 4 – Ball Twist

Here’s a great one for your core. All you have to do it:

  • Start with your back against a wall
  • Bend your knees outward
  • Hold a medicine ball at chest level
  • Slowly twist from side to side

Exercise 5 – Dead Bug Exercise

Despite the creepy name, this exercise is also great for your core. It’s called the “dead bug exercise” because you sort of look like a bug lying on it’s back. Weird, I know, but stick with me!

  • Lie on your back and stretch your arms up to touch your knees
  • Lower one leg and arm down until it almost touches the floor, keeping the opposite leg and arm in the same position
  • Return to the initial position and work the other half

Exercise 6 – Table Top Extention

This exercise is great for your thighs and bottom! It’s a great variation on your typical tabletop exercise. For added benefit, use some ankle and wrist weights. These will give you some added resistance and more exercise.

  • Prop yourself up on your hands and knees
  • Stretch one leg up and back
  • At the same time, stretch the opposite hand up and forward
  • Hold for five seconds
  • Return to starting position and work the opposite side

Exercise 7 – Downward Dog Leg Pull

If you’re familiar with the yoga pose “downward dog”, this exercise will feel right at home to you. It’s a great way to work your core, thighs, and bottom!

  • Start in the downward dog position, on all fours pressing back into your heels
  • Lift one leg straight back and up like the top image above
  • Bring that leg down and into your chest
  • Repeat on the other side
