WEEKEND WORKOUT CHALLENGE IV: WORKOUT 4 - FULL BODY!

Posted by FiscusFitness, LLC on September 24, 2016

Today’s Workout: Full Body

A full body workout can benefit almost anyone. It's a great place for beginners to start because of it's simplicity: it's easy to schedule and can be done at home or the gym.  For advanced exercisers who prefer splits, full body workouts offer a way to keep your body guessing... whether you employ it once a week or a few times a month.  It recruits all of your large muscles.  And... if you move fast enough you can burn a significant amount of calories!

This workout is best performed at the gym, but can be modified for your home.  For resources on what to get for your home gym, read this article. If you need help turning gym exercises into home exercises, check out this guide.

 

Close Grip Push Up: 10 Reps (beginners- modify them on knees)

One Arm Pull Down: 10 Reps per Side (start with non-dominant hand)

Squat Jumps: To Failure (use body weight squats if you have bad knees or back/neck problems)

Walking Lunge: 10 Reps per Side, 20 Lunges Total 

Ball Plank Roll In: To Failure (hold plank position on ball if you cannot complete a roll-in)

Dumbbell Arnold Press: 10 Reps

Side Plank: 20 Seconds each Side

Side Lunge: 10 Reps per Side, 20 lunges Total (start with no weight and gradually add resistance as you get stronger)
