A Fast, Full-Body Workout, No Equipment Needed

Sep 5 2014 - 3:11am

Celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak is known for whipping famous bodies (like Katy Perry [1], Jessica Simpson [2], and Rihanna [3]) into shape, fast. And while the trainer is a spokesperson for gym equipment manufacturer Cybex [4], we asked him to share a workout that anyone can do, even if they don't have a gym membership (or personal gym!). Get the five-move workout, perfect for almost any small space, below. Repeat two to three times for an effective workout in under 30 minutes.

Reverse Lunge

The reverse lunge works your lower body but is a little easier on the knees than the classic lunge.


The Superman [5] is a simple, no-equipment-needed exercise that helps keep your back strong and butt toned. Here's how to do it:

Ball Pike to Plank

Make sure the ball is sized to your body; you should be able to sit on the ball with 90-degree angles at your hips and knees. If you don't have an exercise ball, use two sliders or paper plates on carpet to slide up to pike position.

Diamond Push-Ups

This push-up variation targets the triceps.

Lying Hamstring Curl

This move tones your butt and backs of the thighs. Harley recommends doing this move with one leg raised; to do so, plant one foot on the ball, and lift your other leg up, keeping it straight the whole time. Here's how to do it with both feet:
