Whether you're a gym rat or you prefer to workout at home, this full body workout routine covers it all. It's great in morning before your breakfast or right after work to get rid of the busy day jitters.
Either way sweating it out, getting loose and incorporating every major muscle is a simple win you can do every week.
Before you lift your first piece of equipment make sure to warm up.
Jump rope (or jumping jacks): 3 minutes Air squat (butt to heels): 1 minute Leg swings: 30 sec each leg Arm circles: 30 sec each arm
Full Body Workout Routine
The workout is simple. We cover pushing, pulling, hinging, squatting and carrying. The goal here is to use your entire body. This workout mimicks the real world in a controlled state. Focus on form and rep count.
If you cannot complete the reps with good form, lower your weight. If you complete the reps with plenty of "gas in the tank" increase your weight.
The goal here is to use your head and listen to your body to maximize results.
Enough of the jibberish...onward!
The full body workout routine:
Superset and repeat x 4
Weighted Push-up - 20reps, note: I put a 25lb plate on my back DB Bench row - 12reps Dead lift - 12reps Goblet squat - 12reps Walk w/ DB in one hand - 30sec Shadowbox or jump rope - 60sec Rest - 30sec
You'll most certainly need workout equipment to complete this workout. More than anything you'll need a good set of dumbbells. I prefer doing deadlifts with a barbell but if you don't lift heavy weights then the Bowflex 1090 dumbbell set will be good for you.
The tools I use for this workout are:
Doing this full body workout every day would be silly. The key to exercise is rest. If you want to exercise the next day go for a long walk or do something fun in the yard with the kids / dogs.
And always remember, if you can't workout you can always workout in the office.
No excuses, right?
