Bodyweight workouts along with being simple and easy-to-perform fitness exercises are also a great way to enhance body strength, steadiness and suppleness. The biggest advantage of these workouts is that they can be performed with no equipment and almost anywhere! You can get a solid workout without requiring you to leave the confines of your home to sweat it out. Here are some effective no-equipment body weight exercises that are sure to give you the best results!

Marching Glute Bridge
In this workout, you need to lie on the floor facing the ceiling; your knees must be bent and your feet should be in a flat position on the ground. Now gradually lift your hips to form a bridge position; slowly lift your right foot off the ground with your knees bent. Make sure that your hips are still. Hold onto this position for about five seconds and gradually lower your right foot to the ground while making sure your hips are raised. By elevating your left foot off the ground you can replicate the exercise on the other side.

Single Leg Squats (Pistols)
In order to perform this exercise you need to stabilize yourself on one leg and completely spread the other leg out in a position that lies in front of you. This should be followed by squatting down as deep as possible on the planted leg and come back to the position you started from. You need to finish ten reps for each side.

Owing to the fact that one leg is in front, you get efficient activation of your core. This workout allows you to put a load on the hamstrings and glutes as much as possible, since all your bodyweight is put on one leg.
