If there are weeks when you just can't get to the gym to strength train (e.g., when you're on vacation or traveling on business), you can use some resistance exercises that don't require weights. In these classic exercises, your own body weight provides resistance that challenges the muscles. And these exercises are effective enough to maintain the results you've already achieved until you can get back to the gym's weight room.

  • PUSH-UPS: For shoulders, chest and triceps
  • ABDOMINAL CRUNCHES & SQUATS: For hips, buttocks and thighs
  • TOE RAISES: For the calves
