It's hard to go wrong with body-weight exercises. They're convenient, they require minimal to no equipment, and they're extraordinarily effective. And these types of exercises don't just strengthen the body: They challenge the mind and spirit as well. It's empowering to see what our bodies are capable of and what we are capable of when we believe in and apply ourselves.
After all, being able to perform that extra pushup or lunge after working toward our goal is not merely a physical gain. We see this ripple through our outlook on life, our confidence, and our willingness to strive for more in all areas of our lives. Especially if you're preparing to travel this holiday season, these do-anywhere workout moves will be your best friend—a chair or a park bench is all you need.
