Three exercises you can do anywhere

Some people can't pay for a gym membership, so being able to get exercise anywhere is helpful. Some exercises you can do anywhere are hand walks, burpees, and reverse crunches.

According to Wikipedia, "hand walking is an unusual form of human locomotion in which a person travels in a vertically inverted orientation with all body weight resting on the hands." According to simplemost.com, "this is a great exercise that can be used to warm up the entire body at the beginning of an exercise, or completed in fast reps for cardio purpose." This shows that hand walking can help you get fit.

Burpees are a cardio exercise. According to cheatsheet.com, "they challenge every part of your body and send your heart rate soaring in no time. All this add up to an exercise that burns about 10 calories per minute." In order to do a burpee, "a person squats, places the palms of the hands on the floor in front of the feet, jumps back into a push-up position, in some cases completes one push-up, returns to the squat position, and then jumps up into the air while extending the arms overhead," according to merriam-webster.com. Burpees exercise your upper and lower body muscles.

In order to do a reverse crunch, you lie on your back on the floor, with your legs fully extended out in front of you and arms straight in air. According to Men's Journal, "people do traditional crunches, which end up becoming neck-ups. This ab exercise makes it easier to stabilize your upper back and neck."
