With the cold weather plaguing many different cities across the nation, exercising outside has become out of the question. Since many of us don’t have a gym membership or home exercise equipment, it can be hard to stay in shape during the winter months. When it comes to fitness, sometimes it’s good to go back to basics and stick with things that are simple, yet still effective. So, here are five exercises you can do indoors — no gym or equipment required.

1. Sit-Ups

There’s a reason sit-ups have been a popular exercise of choice for decades. They are simple, equipment-free, and you can do them practically anywhere.

Sit-ups also can improve posture, protect your back from injury, and even help to regulate digestion.
