    Hindu squats are just bodyweight squats with the heels up and an arm swing. Hindu pushups are also known as dive bomber or judo pushups. You should be able to find examples on youtube of all three.

    Try doing them in relatively easy sets at first - say 20 squats, 10 pushups, 30 seconds bridge, rest for a minute or two, repeat. If that's too hard, reduce the numbers. Serious grapplers can do hundreds of the squats - they are excellent for muscular endurance.

    Cardio is good too. If you can't run, use a machine (treadmill/bike/stepper) or skip rope or something.
    What exactly does the bridge work out?

    Your neck, which can take a bit of a beating what with people always trying to break your posture. Its also good to have a strong neck for newaza as bridging helps create space for escaping hold downs.

    Other, more qualified, people may know more but that's how I have always viewed it.

    learn how to properly do burpees & do them in conjunction with rope jumping for cardio, also do bridging, BW squats & pistols, & various kinds of pushups (as many as you can imagine or find examples of on Youtube). If you can, get a pull-up/dip station thing & put it in a corner, or you can get one of those door-mounted pull-up bars & do dips on some chairs. you should be good to go for home training in the morning

    *edit: for neck conditioning, using LIGHT RESISTANCE bands or medical tubing for beginner exercises. don't jump right up to "black band" level thinking you're the Hulk, it's won't end well.

    I don't have anywhere for a dip bar, but I'm already doing P90X, so I'm doing quite a few pull ups and chin ups. Would there be youtube videos of burpees? Lol I've never even heard of those.

    Bridging on your neck will get you choked out. I suggest bridging across the shoulders and shrimping instead.

    also, get some dumbbells over a 20lb-30lb range that you can handle for moderate to high rep counts & do these:
