5 No Equipment Workouts

We are all guilty of making up excuses to not workout. 

“The gym is too far”
“I can’t afford a gym membership” 
“I didn’t brush my teeth”
 “They never play good music” 
“I don't have anything to do workouts at home” 

I know it can be expensive to go to a gym or build a gym at home. However that should not be an excuse to not train. Your body weight is just enough to give you a great workout!
