These may not be the most fun exercise to do, but they get the job done. Many people don’t enjoy sit-ups solely because they can be uncomfortable. This makes sense, nobody wants to feel uncomfortable when they are working out. However, when you have a short workout like this, you have to bite the bullet sometimes.

Squats may be one of the most effective exercises that can be done. It creates a really strong base for you that lays the foundation for you when you are doing any workout. Not to mention, that if you are really looking to get a better-looking booty, this is the exercise you need to be doing.

Push-ups may be one of the most fundamental bodyweight exercises. It incorporates so many different muscle groups that you are doing some work on your upper body, core, back, and legs.

The push-up is something that should be incorporated into any workout to help you achieve maximum results.
