25 Quick Bodyweight Workouts You Can Do in Under 25 Minutes

Hey, are you busy?

Of course, you are!

What a silly question. We’re all busy. Studies show we’re working more than ever and taking less time for ourselves these days. With everything on our plates — jobs, family, school, driving, walking the dog, paying bills, and catching Pokemon — time can really zoom by. As a result, a lot of lesser tasks can fall by the wayside without us even noticing.

But the fact that you’re taking time out of your busy day to read this shows that, despite those other responsibilities pulling you in different directions, you still want to make your health and fitness a priority.

And that’s something we take very seriously. For years, we’ve been hard at work for our readers, helping them reach their fitness goals with innovative and challenging programs. Whether you wanted to lose those stubborn love handles, push your body to the limit, or find new tips on nutrition, we’ve had a program for you.

Now, we definitely stand by these programs and think they’re a great resource for those looking to get in shape. That said, some people simply aren’t interested in a long-term commitment with a fitness program. These people are, for many reasons, looking for something in the form of a stand-alone, quick workout. And we always strive to find a solution for everyone. What can we say — we’re people pleasers.

Our programs range in duration, some lasting as little as three weeks and others much longer. But if you’ve been reading our blog for a while, you’ve probably seen at least a few of the quick workouts we’ve posted that are independent from any of our other programs. These have been tremendously popular for us over the years, so we thought it was high time to gather the best of the best and put them in one place for you.

The programs you’re about to see can be done anytime, anywhere. They’re perfect if you are not committed to a particular program and are looking for a spontaneous, fun challenge! We know this will be a great resource for you. So be sure to bookmark this page — or print out the content — and just like that, you’ve got 25 unique, quick workouts at your disposal.

What do we mean by ‘quick?’ Well, those of you who have been a part of the Shot of Adrenaline family for a while know that we’re not interested in long, tedious workouts. As we said, we know you’re plenty busy and we’re not looking to take up the bulk of your day here. All of these workouts can be done in 25 minutes or less.

With this collection, you can pick and choose the workouts you want to do anytime you want. And of course, there’s no gym equipment needed for any of our workouts. All you need is your body weight and a positive attitude.

What’s the Right Bodyweight Workout for Me?

As you browse the different quick workouts in this article, you may very well wonder how in the heck you’re supposed to choose the best workout for you. Truthfully, it really depends on what you’re looking for each day!

Remember, these are stand-alone workouts, so you can do them in whatever order you wish.

Skip the ones that don’t seem interesting to you. Repeat the ones you like. Mix it up. It’s all up to you. That’s what makes this article a great resource for people who don’t feel a long-term program is realistic.

And as you’ll see, the workouts are certainly varied in content.

A good portion focus on abs workouts. A few of them are great if you’re specifically looking to get a quick leg workout to strengthen your lower body.

We’ve also got a push-up exercise that utilizes every finger on your hands… there are going to be some exercises here you’ve never heard of before!

Some of our quick workouts are going to be full-body circuits that will give you a great burn from head to toe. So if, for example, you’re on the road and you think you may only have one chance to work out all week, these would be a great option.

And as we said, we’ve got a few that will be like nothing you’ve ever done previously — like a workout inspired by our four-legged friends of the animal kingdom. Or a workout that has an element of chance (and a pair of dice).

Again, these are all 25-minute workouts with all the benefits of calisthenics, so no matter which you choose, you’re going to be burning fat while building solid, lean muscle.

1) The Golden Legs Workout

You’re entire body will be spinning as well since you’ll be facing a different direction with each hold.

3) UP AND DOWN UPPER BODY GALORE WORKOUT

Up and Down Upper Body Galore infographic

We all know that guy who goes all upper body and exercises his pecs mercilessly for beach season then stop working out altogether when it’s over. Now beach season is over (well, if you are in the Northern Hemisphere), are you going to be that guy?

You and I know better, we know that there’s no season for being strong and healthy and that being athletic is a 365/365 hustle, right?

I’m really excited for you all to try this fun and challenging workout, so let me know how it goes.

Instructions

Do each exercise for the total amount of reps then immediately move to the next exercise. Once you finish 1 round, rest for 60 seconds. Do 4 total rounds.

Beginner Modifications

You can stretch the post-round rest to more than 60 seconds. You can even take it up to 4 minutes. Just make sure to give it all you got with the exercises.

4) 10 Finger Push-up Workout

In this workout, we adjusted the standard push-up so that it targeted different muscle fibers than the normal push-up. You can do this with any exercise, just use some creativity.

Bodyweight exercises can be fun. You don’t have to do the same old push-ups and squats over and over again. Experiment.

Enjoy!

 

5) The Ternary Gains Workout

The Ternary Gains Workout infographc

I had three goals in mind while designing this workout:

  • Makes it a whole-body bodyweight workout
  • Make it simple
  • Make it fun

As a result, the workout consists of no more than three exercises, covering the upper body, the core, and the lower body. All three exercises are fun, simple, and easy to do.

This is a great way to end the week and burn some of the Thanksgiving calories.

So go ahead and get your shot of motivation by watching my friends Dmitry and Jaroslav performing the workout, then download you copy of the workout sheet and get to it.

7) The Hands-Feet Bodyweight Workout

hands-feet workout

According to a statistic I just invented, the bottom of our feet is touching the floor for over 99% of our waking hours.

Considering that we are a mammalian species, that´s embarrassing.  Well, not all mammals use all fours for balance. Some like whales use none and are doing a permanent “look ma, no hand and no feet.” But whales are almost as weird as us, so they’re not the best example.

So for this workout, we’re splitting it fairly, we’re supporting our body 50% of the time with the feet and 50% with the hands.

And guys, if you’re not taking good care of both your feet and your hands, and you’re not giving them both enough time, you must be insane, because all the sane people do.

INSTRUCTIONS

For each exercise, do as many reps as you can in 60 seconds then immediately move to the next exercise. Once you finish 1 round, rest for 30-40 seconds. Do 5 total rounds.

8) The Animal Within All Fours Workout

The Animal Within All Fours workout infographic

Bipedalism is a huge advantage humans have over other animals. Having our hands free means we can do a lot of things that other animals can’t do, like eating ice cream and doing the Macarena. But today we’re having none of that bipedal nonsense, today we’re going primal, today we’re going savage, today we’re bringing the animal within.

How to unleash the animal within:

Do each exercise for 20 seconds at your normal pace then immediately move to the next exercise. Rest for 20 seconds after each round. Do 5 total rounds.

Exercises:

Tiger mode:

You can take this to the next level by not resting between rounds. You know why because a true tiger needs no rest, so why would you? Well, actually tigers sleep for about 16 hours a day, which is about the exact amount of sleep your body will need to function again after this brutality.

Kitten mode:

If the workout is too much for your little paws, you can reduce the amount of time for the exercises. Just try to be consistent, meaning try to do all exercises for the same amount of time.

9) The Platinum Thighs Workout

The Platinum Thighs Workout infographic

A lot of people say that sitting is the new smoking.

But if you have two twigs under your pants, is it even worth the risk?

Sometimes I look at chicken-legged people doing physical activity and I genuinely worry their legs would snap in half at any moment.

I mean, when a kid tries to hand balance, her mom’s heart skips a beat, because the mom sees that she’s doing it on these frail skinny rods we have for arms. But we see people’s leg balancing on their skinny legs all the time and no one bats an eye. How is this normal?

Well, I’m doing something about that.

Today’s workout is all about giving you the legs you can safely and proudly stand on.

This workout consists of lower-body-intensive exercises that will promote your thighs to the platinum level.

So go ahead and download your copy of the workout sheet below and get to it, but before you do that, get your shot of motivation by watching my friend Dimtry do the workout:

INSTRUCTIONS

Do each exercise for the specified amount of time, rest for 10 seconds, then move to the next exercise. Once you finish one round, rest for 1 minute. Do 4 rounds total.

EXERCISES

ADVANCED MODIFICATIONS

11) The Pushup Extravaganza Workout

The Pushup Extravaganza Workout inforgraphic

There are many reasons why you may want to have stronger arms :

  • Say hello to your neighbor with more fervor
  • Pet your dog with more passion
  • Hold more limes
  • etc

Whatever your reasons are, this workout is all about monstrifying your arms and your general upper body region.

The workout starts with some pull-ups, just to get you tired, then hit you with a barrage of pushups.

Can you survive?

Watch my friend Anand killing it doing a round of the workout:

Can you do it better?

INSTRUCTIONS

Do each exercise until failure, rest for 30 seconds, then move to the next exercise. Once you finish one round, rest for 40-50 seconds. Do 4 total rounds.

EXERCISES

ADVANCED MODIFICATIONS

  • Can you do close grip pull-ups? If yes, do those instead, they’ll hit your arms more than regular pull-ups.
  • Replace barbwire push-ups with a more advanced push-up variation, like the one-arm push-up.

BEGINNER MODIFICATIONS

  • If you struggle to do a pull-up, you can do assisted pull-ups, by having a chair underneath you to offset some of your weight.
  • For wide push-ups, just have your hands as wider than shoulder-width as possible, it doesn’t have to be exactly “wide.”
  • The same goes for triangle push-ups, just put your hands as close as possible, they don’t have to touch.

12) The Dual Gains Workout

The Dual Gains Workout Infographic

This workout is based on Bruce Lee’s immortal words:

“I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.”

You don’t have to go through a gazillion exercises to get a good workout. If you do it right, one exercise could do it (burpees, anyone?).

In this case, it’s two exercises. Push-ups for your upper body and squats for your lower body.

This is a fast-paced, minimalist whole body workout that will leave you drenched.

So download your copy of the workout sheet and start breaking a sweat, but before you do that, watch my friends Dmitry and Jaroslav doing the workout for maximum motivation.

Ab Calisthenics Workouts

The workouts listed here help all of your key muscle groups.

However, we recognize that, more than any other area of the body, people ask us how to improve their midsection. We all want those washboard abs you see on magazine covers.

But if you’re not dedicated to a specific program, how do you know what you should be doing? A lot of people try to simplify things by doing crunches every day, but the problem is, crunches mostly don’t work.

You need better methods for engaging your core to get a solid ab workout that will build strength and tone muscles. So that’s what we’ve gathered for you in this article!

Having a strong core isn’t just aesthetically pleasing. It’s got numerous other benefits. Among them, you’ll have an improved sense of balance, you can alleviate lower back pain, and even reduce your risk of heart disease.

Take a look at our awesome, stand-alone ab workouts and all the variations of exercises they offer.

Now, remember, just because they’re stand-alone exercises doesn’t mean you can do them once and wake up with a six-pack. Fitness takes hard work and dedication.

But you can take whichever workout(s) work best for you, and utilize them as needed in your fitness regimen. And remember, these are all 25-minute workouts (or less), so you’re going to get an awesome core workout in a short amount of time.

18) The Sore Core, Please No More Calisthenics Workout

22) The Ab Shredder Throne Workout

I have another ab challenge workout for you.

I hope you have been consistently doing the other ab workouts. Remember that if you follow these workouts 3X each week and incorporate the advice underneath the workouts you will see your abs popping out as you have never seen them before. And heck, it’s almost beach season so let’s get cranking! 😉

For today’s workout, we will be using two chairs or thrones.

Place the chairs so they are facing each other with enough room for you to be in between. The workout will take 5 minutes to complete. If you want to go through it 2 or even 3 times, that’s totally up to you stud muffin.

I call this workout, “The Ab Shredder Throne Workout” because you will be using a chair (or 2 chairs to be precise) for the workout.

The main exercise will be ab bicycles while you are pressing up from the chairs. You will be doing this exercise for 20 seconds in between all the other exercises. This will be your “rest”. Its not actually rest as you will see.

It’s actually extremely challenging but let’s trick ourselves into thinking that its a rest so we can work out harder. 😉

What’s The Workout Look Like Todd?

  • Exercise 1: Bicycle on Chairs – 20 seconds
  • Exercise 2: Extended Sits Ups w/ Leg Lifts – 40 seconds
  • Exercise 3: Bicycle on Chairs – 20 seconds

  • Exercise 5: Bicycle on Chairs – 20 seconds
  • Exercise 6: Crunches – 40 seconds
  • Exercise 7: Bicycle on Chairs – 20 seconds
  • Exercise 8: V-Ups – 40 seconds
  • Exercise 9: Bicycle on Chairs – 20 seconds
  • Exercise 10: Flutter Kicks – 40 seconds

–Repeat 2 or 3 times in order to reach full fatigue–

If you have struggled with losing those last 5-10lbs (or need to lose more than that) I have a technique that will help you. You may not realize it but water can be your best friend in your fat loss journey. There are two main reasons…

1. Fill up on water before meals so you eat less (seriously, this is more effective than you think)

The single reason that you (or I) have a body fat higher than we want is that we have consumed too many calories.

Our stomach tells us that we are hungry and our brain tells us to grab some grub.

However, even after we have consumed enough food we often look for that feeling of being “full”. It may be subconscious or innate desire for “complete satisfaction”.

I’m not sure but if you have ever found yourself reaching for more and more potato chips and hummus (yep, this is my downfall and admittedly did this a few days ago) then you know what I am talking about. Potato chips fill you up fast.

When I start eating potato chips I feel like I am a man on a mission. My only goal is to fill up my tank as high as I can possibly get it. A little preventative action can go a long way to eliminate this problem and still give you a feeling of fullness.

*Todd’s Tip For Feeling Full Without The Calories:  Drink one 12 oz glass of filtered water before every snack and two 12 oz glasses of filtered water before every meal. Drink it within 5 minutes of eating and you will eat quite a bit less and still have a feeling of fullness. I have been experimenting with this technique lately and have been shocked at how full I will feel after only small portions of food.

How Much Water Should I Be Drinking Every Day?

Most articles online state that you should drink 8-12 glasses of water every day. My research has shown me to advocate for this approach: “Take your body weight in lbs and multiply it by 0.6. Then drink that amount of water in ounces every day.

For most people, if you use the technique described above of drinking the prescribed amounts before every snack and meal then you’ll be right on track.

2. Water Is Needed For Proper Muscle Function Which Burns Fat

Nutrition consultant and author Chris Aceto explains: “The consensus in the bodybuilding community is that high water storage within muscles acts as an anabolic factor. This allows the muscles to maintain a positive nitrogen balance, which directly impacts muscle growth.”

We have seen from past research that more muscle increases resting metabolic rate which burns fat. So drinking water will enhance your ability to burn fat.

*Please Remember!

Whenever you are changing a lifestyle habit you never want to try to change more than 1 or 2 things at a time. We are creatures of habit and will fall back into our old habits if we try to incorporate too many lifestyle changes at once.

Practice something for at least 21 days straight and a habit will begin to form. Only after this initial 21 day period is over should you think about adding something new to the mix.

23) The 10 Minute Ab & Shoulder Screamer Workout

This is a super-challenging shoulder and ab workout using only bodyweight exercises that I can almost guarantee that you won’t be able to get through. Heck, I can’t even get through it. But that’s the fun of it, right?

This workout comprises 3 moves:

  • Move 1: Double Leg Lumber Jacks
  • Move 2: Single Leg Lumber Jacks
  • Move 3: Plank

You will do each exercise for one minute straight and continue on to the next exercise. After you finish Move 3 you will take 1 minute rest. Trust me. You’ll need it. 🙂

After the rest, you will do the same thing for the second set. Then rest for a minute and finish up with a 3rd set.

Done!

24) The Hanging Ab Challenge Workout


The workout consists of 3 main exercises:

  1. Hanging Crunch
  2. Right Side Twist
  3. Left Side Twist

You will be doing 10 reps of each of the exercises and then rest for 60 seconds for a total of 3 sets.

That’s it!

Hope you guys enjoy the workout! As always, post your comments below.

25) The Extreme Ab Bouncer Workout

No messing around.

In this workout, we will be doing 3 sets of 3 different variations of the Ab Bouncer (An exercise I made up a while ago).

    Thanks Sir- these are incredibly invaluable!

    I did have a question around frequency- how often should these be done( in the case I find 2-5 workouts I enjoy ).

    My abs are absolutely destroyed from the core workouts. They seem so simple but once you get to the third round your core starts to get sore and then you realize how good of a workout it really is. Thanks for all the different workouts!
