    The days I cannot go to the gym I do bodyweight exercises at home.

    - Push-ups with one arm are a great replacement to the bench press
    - Similarly, vertical push-ups for shoulders (sorry don't know the name in English) are good replacement for the military press
    - For the legs... I just take advantage of living at the 11th floor. Adding some extra weight like a filled backpack does the job
    - Abs: I do standard crunches, as well as static positions like the V and the L position

    I also have a pullup bar in the garage, for the lats, but I guess it doesn't count as it is a machine.

Now the trick is to keep your feet flat on the ground, pumping your knees, let your hips move, but the upper half of your body from the chest up should be still just as a desk clerk (or bank clerk).

    You pass the challenge if you could have the bottom half move with the beat full time, make sure you are still breathing, smiling and still as if nothing is going on if someone just look at you on the top half.

    If you want more, try to walk around with, moving forward for awhile and then back. Keep it graceful! Enjoy!

    Note: try it at your own risk, don't do it if you're too full Pick your favorite up beat music and don't hurt yourself. This exercise should not cause your pain in any way, if it doesn't check your posture or just stop.
    Now get some Slipknot... and try that. *evil grin*

    Also... check out the Simple Fit or the Simple Fit thread.

    Will try Cori! But instead of do full count, I could just do 1/4 or 1/2 count so that I can breath ... LOL

    Thanks! It's always good to have something new to work with and make workout fun and enjoyable. Thanks for sharing everyone.

    I dance, walk and hula-hoop. Sometimes I do all 3 at the same time, while being dependent on a machine only for the music.
