I really think Morning Yoga would be great for that time slot and it's obviously quite quiet. It doesn't have to last long to be beneficial (if you type whatever time frame you'd like to work with in youtube, like "3 minute yoga"- "1 hour yoga" there are videos there that would fit your time frame if you want to use a video) and it will help to not only get ...

Resistance bands are a great alternative to free weights if you're short on space. And unlike weights, which are much more expensive and can clink, resistance bands come in several varieties (plain flat elastic bands are commonly in physical therapy, and elastic-core cords are commonly included with at-home workout kits). You can change the resistance by ...

Bodyweight exercises are great for doing at home, on the go, on a budget, during breaks, so they are a great choice. However, to keep your whole body fit you will need a variety of movement types. An example of this is this great infographic showing the basic 6 movements involving nearly all muscles from your body. The infographic is taken from the popular ...

I suggest you take a look at the Scientific 7-Minute Workout. It's free (and so is the NY Times app for it), and it's effective (it's the result of research published in ACSM'S Health & Fitness Journal). It does include chair step ups, high knee running in place, and jumping jacks. I haven't found any of those to be especially loud, but if you're ...

Convict Conditioning has a great set of routines using bodyweight progressions going from super easy variants (i.e. doing push-ups standing up against a wall) to eventually targeting much ...

Pull-ups are great for the upper body. You can buy a Pull-up bar for your doorframe or use a nearby tree or playground on your way to work. If you don't have the strength for full pull-ups, begin by doing inverse ones (jump up and slide down as slowly as possible). Also short and long sprints (e.g. 100 m and 800 m) don't take long and build a bit of ...

Yes, it is going to be useful. Especially if you slow down your cadence (speed of repetition), you will get a good pump and you will see greater increase in your physical strength, which is something good and positive. Simple bodyweight exercises done in a circuit fashion would be great, such as: Squats Push-Ups Chin-ups if possible Planks The list can go ...

Yep, it's pretty do-able. I just did one right now to be sure. There's actually a bunch of muscles involved since you're locking your legs straight to help on the lever aspect. The exercise is referred to as a straight leg situp. Off the top of my head, I think some general full body conditioning stuff would be good, particularly the flutter kick, turkish ...
