Squats are a must-see classic in an exercise routine. In addition, they never fail, since they are highly effective at working legs and glutes. However, it is essential to pay close attention to the position of the body to avoid back pain and work the right area well.

In fact, when done properly, squats involve almost every muscle in your legs. So how are they made? Just squat down, bending your knees and hips, and work so that your knees don't go too far from your feet.

Squats

If you want something that involves more resistance, there are a few variations to stiffen the classic squat exercise. To work more intensely you can use weight, with dumbbells. You can also combine the squat with jumps for a more aerobic exercise.

2. Climbers

It is one of the best exercises to do cardiovascular work, despite how easy it is to do. It is also one of the most complete exercises, since it works both abdomen and arms and back.

To do it correctly, get into a plank position and alternate the movement of the legs bringing the knee to the chest. Imitate the movement you make when climbing stairs or running. You can vary it by taking the knees out of the body line, or reduce its hardness if you use a step to hold it with your hands instead of your forearms.

Again, it is essential to maintain a correct posture with your shoulders and hands aligned. The speed at which your legs move is just as important. At higher speed, with movement control, greater intensity.

3. Plank

This is a great exercise if you are looking for functional training routines to have a better abdominal for the summer. Not for nothing is one of the exercises par excellence to activate the abdominal area, called core (the abdomen and the part of the lower back), which usually accumulates a lot of fat.

In addition, this exercise also strengthens the arms, chest, back, buttocks and quadriceps. But it is important to maintain the posture without arching the lower back, keeping the back straight as if it were the standing posture. Also remember to breathe in a controlled and constant way. 

Plank

The plank has many variations, but the classic one consists of supporting yourself on the balls of your feet and on your forearms, forming a 90-degree angle with your elbow. Activate the abdomen and hold the position as indicated. Use a stopwatch to control the series, which can be 30 seconds or 1 minute.

4. Stationary bicycle

Cycling is a popular exercise that improves fitness and can help you lose weight. Although this exercise is usually done outdoors, many gyms offer stationary bikes that allow you to pedal while staying indoors.

Stationary Bicycle

Cycling is great for people of any fitness, from beginners to athletes. In addition, it does not require weight bearing and is a low impact exercise.

5. Scissor jumps

Scissor jumps are great for burning calories. It is a simple cardiovascular exercise to perform and does not need extra material. It is as simple as jumping by opening and closing your legs while opening and closing your arms. Despite its simplicity, it involves the work of many muscles.

This exercise is particularly useful for those people without time to train. You can do jumping jacks at any time of the day to stimulate metabolism and spend some extra calories.

Scissor jumps

Its recommend doing 20-second sets, doing the exercise quickly and intensely, and resting for about 10 seconds between sets. The exercise block could be about 5 to 10 minutes.
