If you want to get a good workout at home without investing in equipment, Brick Houston head trainer and general manager Cole Warner says bodyweight exercises are incredibly effective. Here are a few you can try:

PLANK TOE REACH UPS - Get into a high plank position or push-up position. Reach your right arm out in front of you and take your right arm and tap your left foot. Then, reach your left arm out in front of you and tap your right foot.

PLANK ROTATION REACH UPS - Get into a high plank or push-up position. Take your right arm and tap your left foot. Then, rotate your body and reach your right arm to the sky. Then, take your left arm, tap your right foot, rotate your body and reach your left arm to the sky.

CRAB TOE TOUCHES - Sit on your behind. Rest your hands behind you, pointing your fingers toward your bottom. Put your feet on the ground, knees bent. Lift your bottom. Take your right arm off the ground and your left foot off the ground and tap each other. Then, take your left arm off the ground and your right foot off the ground and tap.

PIKE JUMPS - Get into a high plank or push-up position. Jump your legs in toward feet so your bottom is up in the air and your body makes a triangle with the ground. Then, jump feet back out into plank position.

SIDE PLANK LEG RAISES - Lie on your side. Lift body by either putting weight on your elbow or hand. Lift the outside leg up and down. Repeat on the other side.

Try to do ten reps on each side.
