You don’t need fancy workout equipment to lose weight and get healthy, you can workout right on your own floor. Here are five floor exercises that will melt fat and tone your body.

Push Ups

Push up get your heart pumping and can build muscle in your shoulders, arms and even chest.

Most people know how to do a push up, but just in case your forgot, here’s how it’s done.

Lay on the floor on your stomach.

Use your arms to push yourself up off the floor. You should be on the tips of your toes also.

Bend your elbows and drop your body back to the floor, but do not let your body touch completely.

Push yourself back up and repeat these steps as many times as possible.


Crunches are the best way to build abs and lose the fat around your stomach. Crunches are easy to master and the more you do them, the faster you will see results.

Lay on the floor on your back.

Bend your knees and make sure your feet are flat on the floor.

Place your arms behind your head and sit up to bring your chest to your knees. Repeat as many times as desired or possible.


Squats work your thighs and abs and can help burn fat from all over your body. This exercise is fairly simple, but a few squats in and you will start feeling the burn of a good exercise.

If you really want to add some difficulty, do your squats with your back flat against a wall.

Stand with your feet spread shoulder length apart.

Bend your knees and squat down.

Stand back up and repeat.


Lunges tone your buttocks, thighs and back muscles. Many people do lunges to stretch out their muscles before a run, or a workout, but the exercise has benefits aside from stretching.

Stand with one leg out in front of you and the other a little behind you.

Bend the front knee and lean your body forward, keeping your back leg in place.

Alternate legs. Lean as far forward as possible and do as many reps as you can handle.

High Knees

High knees can be considered a cardiovascular exercise and they also tones your legs and abs. Here’s how they are done. Stand and pull one knee up high. Put your foot down and pull up your other knee. Alternate knees and increase your speed.

The best thing about these floor exercises is that you can do them anywhere there is a floor and some open space. Do them at home, outside, even in your office.

Once you have mastered each technique and determined how many reps you can do for each exercise, set goals for yourself and exercise regularly.
