HOME BODY WEIGHT EXERCISES
As the pandemic continues to take its toll on people around the world, itâ€™s driven most of us to move our gym workouts, to home or park workouts. Sure, you may not have the same high-quality equipment that youâ€™d normally find in your local gym, but nevertheless, staying fit is a way of life, and incorporating bodyweight exercises (like squats and side planks) into your routine will work wonders on keeping you mentally and physically healthy.
Coming up are 3 of the best bodyweight exercises you can do to strengthen your stride, and maintain (or push towards gaining!) your incredible physique.
1. SHAPE THAT BOOTY WITH SQUATS

Even if you donâ€™t consider yourself a master yogi, the side plank is a pose youâ€™ll want to start practicing on the regular. When you hold this pose for even a few seconds, your body will punish you by reminding you that youâ€™re definitely not working out your obliques nearly enough.
Side planks are exercises that are unilateral, meaning that they only work one side of your body at a time. Youâ€™ll also really feel it since your muscles will be working double-time to support your entire body.
