Today I’m sharing another workout from my Workout Wednesday series with Hyatt Place Hotels. Like the other nine workouts I created, these are perfect to do while traveling. They don’t require much space (although Hyatt Place rooms are actually very spacious!) nor do they require much if any equipment.
This bodyweight pyramid workout is truly no-excuses, as it can be done in just 5 minutes. That being said, if you have more time to workout, rest 30-60 seconds after you complete the pyramid and then repeat it 2-4 times.
5-Minute Bodyweight Pyramid Workout
As with all workouts, make sure you’re properly warmed up beforehand and always listen to your body, modifying or stopping as needed.
- Bear Plank Jacks – Starting in a high plank position, hop your feet out wide and back to center. Then jump your feet forward, landing in a hovering tabletop position with knees stacked under hips. Hop back out to plank and repeat.
- Side Lunge Hops (right) – Step to the right, sliding hips back as you bend into a side lunge on that right leg. Push off the right foot to come back up to center, bringing the right knee into your chest as you hop up off the left foot. Land and step wide back into your lunge.

- Bird Dog – Start in a tabletop position on the balls of your feet with knees under hips, hovering a couple inches off the floor (to modify, keep knees on floor). From here, extend right arm and left leg out straight. Bring back to center and repeat on other side.
- Squat Jump to Jack – Staying low in a squat, hop your feet in narrow and then out wide. Do a squat jump, landing back low.
