Push Ups

Many women can’t do push ups and pull ups so these are the perfect challenging moves for you to master. Your body will have to adapt as you learn to work with your weight to push or pull yourself from one position to another. Start with knee push ups and slowly work your way to strict push ups. Gradually increase the number of reps and sets and you will see how strong you are getting by the day. These are great for working shoulders, arms, and back as well as your abs.

Pull Ups

Same with pull ups. You can start with assisted pull ups and gradually increase the number of reps you can do in one set and the number of sets as well.

Bodyweight Squats

Squats are challenging in general, so when you are a beginner it’s best to learn to do bodyweight squats anyway. Make sure to master the technique so it would be easier for you when you squat with weights. Watch the butt, it shouldn’t curl (butt wink) as you go down.

Bulgarian squats are difficult but they will definitely lift your butt and make your legs stronger. When you’re advanced enough you can take up some watter bottles or dumbbells for additional challenge if you want to.

Planks

Finally, crunches are good for a few months but then they start taking toll on your spine so it’s best to stick to static work with planks. Side planks will tone your obliques and straight planks will work your entire core. To make it more challenging elevate your legs with an exercise ball or a chair to feel the burnin your lower abs better.

These moves will require some time to learn but if you have more than enough of it and want to progress and make them more challenging you can always either add some weights, reps, or try new variations of same exercises.
