5-Move Home Workout to Tone Your Entire Body

Toning up your body can be easy, if you know what to do. You don’t even need to spend a fortune on personal training or a gym membership. You can build an amazing physique at home without any equipment or a lot of space.

Now, I’m not saying that this workout is magical. You have to stay consistent and advance to more challenging workouts as you get fitter.

In the meantime, use this home workout to improve your fitness and tone up your entire body.

20 Butterfly Dips

This exercise will tighten your arms, because it builds your triceps. Triceps are bigger than biceps. Focus on training your triceps if you want firm arms.

How to perform:

  • Sit on the floor and keep your knees bent. Place your hands behind your butt with fingers facing forward.
  • Lift your butt off the floor by straightening your arms.
  • Slowly bend your arms until your butt taps the floor and then extend them.
  • Remember to spread your knees apart every time your butt touches the floor and then bring them together as you rise.


30 Incline Push Ups

Incline push-ups are great for toning your arms, shoulders and chest muscles. You can make this exercise challenging by performing it on a low surface or use a high surface to make it easier.

How to perform:

  • Place your hands on an elevated surface and keep your shoulders, hips, and knees aligned in a straight line.
  • Bend your elbows and lower your chest until it touches the surface.
  • Slowly rise until your arms are almost straight to complete the rep.


30 Lunges and Twists

You probably know that lunges activate your leg and butt muscles. Well, adding the twist will target your oblique muscles as well.

How to perform:

  • Stand upright and keep your feet hip-width apart then place your hands behind your head (prisoner style).
  • Lunge forward until the front knee is bent at 90 degrees. Twist your torso to the right and then lunge back to starting position.
  • Lunge forward with the opposite leg and then twist your torso to the left.
  • Keep alternating this movement after each rep.


40 Kneeling Rear Leg Raises

When was the last time you trained the biggest muscle in your body? Other than building your glutes, this exercise activates lower back muscles.

How to perform:

  • Get in all-fours position and then bend your elbows and rest your forearms on the floor facing forward.
  • Extend one leg backward and straighten it. Slowly lift it as high as possible then lower it until it almost touches the floor.
  • Complete reps for one leg before alternating.


1-Minute Half-Squat Torso Twists

This exercise will tone your leg and oblique muscles. I can assure you that your thighs will be burning after one minute.

How to perform:

  • Keep your feet shoulder-width apart and then bend your knees to get in the half-squat position.
  • Place your hands in front of your chest and then start twisting your torso from right to left.
  • Remember to keep your ab muscles tight throughout.
