Sprinting

It may not sound obvious to some but sprinting is a great bodyweight exercise for the lower body and core. Indeed sprinting requires tremendous lower body strength to actively move the legs/glutes ;and core power as well to stabilize one's frame. The arms are also used to some extent in the stabilization process. Sprinting will increase your metabolism in a great way leading to lean muscle gain. Do 3-5 sprints of approximately 100 meters (rest 1 or 2 minutes between sprints).

Pros:
  • Works the entire leg, core.
  • Increases metabolism.
Cons:
  • Requires access to park, empty facility, etc .... 
  • Also requires good weather conditions if done outside.
