Behold, the excuse-proof workout plan! It costs nothing, requires no equipment, and you can do it anywhere, anytime. We call it the Good Life 10—a series of old-school moves, like jumping jacks and push-ups, that you can use to ease yourself into fitness or maintain the strong body you already have. "These exercises don't get dated—they're great at head-to-toe conditioning," says fitness expert Leslie Sansone, creator of the bestselling Walk at Home DVD programs, who designed this plan.
The Program: These are the only 10 exercises you'll need. If you're in pretty good shape, jump right in to doing 25 reps per exercise. Three of the moves are positions you hold, so add seconds to those as you get stronger, or just begin at 25 seconds. Beginners: If any exercise feels impossible right now, skip it and incorporate it down the line.More
Stand with feet together, arms at sides. Jump out with both feet so they land shoulder-distance apart while bringing hands overhead. Jump back to start and repeat.
Stand with feet wide apart, arms raised at sides with palms facing toward the back of the room. Cross your left foot behind your right, and bring your left arm in front of you. Bring left foot back to start, cross right foot behind left, and bring right arm in front of you. That's one rep.
Make it Harder: Instead of stepping back and forth, hop.
