Simple Workout for You:

Plank
Get into position: lie on your front with your forearms on the floor (parallel to each other), toes tucked under, and then push up your bodyweight so you are resting on your forearms and your feet. Keep your body in a straight line - brace your core muscles, don’t sag in the middle. Hold as long as you can! Start the plank challenge and see how far you can do with little progress each day.

Jump Rope
Jumping helps your body in several ways, even if it might look easy and not so strenuous for the body it definitely does wonders to your body. It is important you turn the rope with your wrists, not arms.

Jumping Jacks
Repeatedly jump, keep the feet wide while circling the arms overhead, then back again. 10 minutes of this exercise burns away 100 calories with any extra ordinary work done.

Jog in Place
Just lift your feet an inch or two off the ground and hop from foot to foot, making sure to engage your arms. Start with slow marching while increasing your pace changing to jog.

Fitness Tips

Burpees
Start with squatting on the floor, then get into a plank position, jumping back in, and standing up. It is hard to stand 10 minutes of this exercise, but if you can then this might become your favourite exercise.

Mountain Climbers
The prime focus of this workout is to keep your core engaged and back straight as you bring your knees forward. Keep your body in a push-up position and start running the knees in and out.

Staircase Exercise
Walking stairs is an excellent cardio workout and you can use the steps for a variety of other exercises.  Run or walk up the stairs as fast as you can and walk back down to recover, repeating for 10 or more minutes.

Squat Jumps
Form a squatting position, and then jump as high as you can and then come back into a squatting position. This exercise is high impact and high intensity, and requires strong joints and a strong heart.
