I've been asked recently about posting a workout that can be done at home, with no equipment and one that can cater for beginner and for progression to intermediate and more advanced levels. So here you go! Warmup:
Bruce Lee had one of the most iconic bodies in the film industry. Even the big-shots of bodybuilding like Joe Weider and Arnold Schwarzenegger have nothing but praise for him. Here’s what Arnold Schwarzenegger has to say about Bruce: There’s a lot of people that do all those moves and they do have the skill, but they don’t look visually as believable or as impressive as Bruce Lee did.
by Brad Schoenfeld Jan 11, 2012 MRT, a.k.a. "metabolic resistance training," might as well be called "madman training." It's no-holds-barred, haul-ass, maximum-effort, build-muscle, heave-weight, torch-fat, absolutely insane huff-n-puff training. It'll spike your metabolism, crush calories like beer cans, lift your lactate threshold, boost your ability to make muscle, and maximize your body's capacity for change. Whew!

1. You can strengthen your core without moving a muscle. Whereas most muscles propel you, your core resists movement—for instance, to protect your spine when you twist your torso. So don't be surprised by how hard it is to stay still in this core workout.
by Dan John – 4/19/2011 You look like a walking apostrophe. Your chest is sunken. You've got the "grandpa hunch" going. It's okay. You're not alone.
W e get it. You want lean body. And while no single exercise will ever flatten your belly or give you a six-pack (you need to adjust your diet for that), there are ways to work your abs even harder so that as you lose fat, you uncover a hard body. We asked Jim Smith, C.S.C.S, a strength coach at Diesel Strength & Conditioning, to identify the hardest core exercises. Try these and your abs will never look or feel the same. #29 Kneeling Plank
This one core move will make your entire workout better Posted Date: December 7, 2011 If you’re looking for ways to keep your ab workout challenging (and interesting!), then you must try the “mountain climber with feet against a wall.” Yes, that’s a mouthful. But this move—from fitness expert BJ Gaddour, owner of StreamFit.com—is without a doubt one of the coolest new core exercises we’ve seen in a while.

Everyone wants flatter abs, and a lot of people try to “spot reduce” by doing ab exercises to try to get them. The problem is, you aren’t going to lose fat from your midsection by doing 1,000 crunches. It’s just not going to happen. What I like to do instead is Core Exercises. You see, you need to achieve overall fat loss before you will see the results you want around your abs. In order to do this, you need more complete workouts.
Now it’s time for an even harder workout. P90X2 (Beachbody, $139.80), which shipped just in time for the holidays, is designed for folks craving more “muscle confusion,” a phrase Horton coined to describe the mishmash of moves designed to keep viewers’ bodies guessing. What’s new for version two is that the cardio’s gone, replaced with workouts emphasizing a combo of speed, power and balance. And there are plenty of exercises Horton expects no one to be able to pull off on the first attempt, including lever pull-ups (performed with your body parallel to the ground rather than perpendicular) and a push-up variation he’s dubbed “the impossible.” “If you’re not in shape, it’ll be like climbing Everest,” says Horton, who notes that P90X2 is five days a week rather than six because anyone slogging through it will need the extra recovery time.
