 7 Burpees 

Don't look away just yet! While some consider the burpee a difficult exercise, it is not without its merits. The burpee turns your body into a fat burning machine. The plyometric movement involved in the exercise combines a push up with a vertical jump. They are highly recommended as they can increase your metabolic rate allowing you to burn calories even long after your workout, 

We would definitely recommend you add these to your home workout routine!

6 Squats

The next exercise needs no introduction. The main benefit of the squat is the strength condition the exercise develops in your legs and glutes as well as back muscles, in fact as a result of the squat creating an anabolic environment it is beneficial for promoting body-wide muscle growth.  

Each different squat variant can be a benefit to your daily workouts.

4 Diamond push up

Here's one for the arms that you may not be using.

The diamond push up focuses mainly on the triceps however also works the chest muscles and core while keeping your body in a straight line.
