Total Body Torture Workout
Sorry I’ve been so MIA on facebook and here. Lots been going on the past couple of days, but I will be back on sched tonight. I will also be announcing the winner of the FitActivewear sweepstakes tonight as well! So excited for the gals that won! Could it be you?!!??
Anyway, for those of you looking for a new workout tomorrow, you can try this routine put together by my PT friend David. I call it…Total Body Torture Workout (Muahahahaha…)
3 minutes jogging followed by 1-minute of jumping rope. Remember, give every ounce of effort for the 1-minute intervals. Repeat the circuit 4 more times for a total of 5 rounds. No resting!
Whole Body Circuit
I did 15 Flat Dumbbell Chest Presses, 15 Pull-ups, 15 Front Squats. For beginner and intermediate lifters, I would recommend:
15 Push-ups – try to do these on your toes. Drop to knees if need be.
15 Inverted Rows
15 Goblet Squats
Perform all three moves back-to-back with no rest. Take a 2-minute water break after completing the circuit and then repeat 2 more times for a total of 3 rounds.
20 Crunches – keep arms extended in front of your shoulder like you are trying to touch the ceiling.
20 Figure 4s – perform 10 reps on each side. These are a great move for the obliques!
20 Skywalkers – extend legs at a 90-degree angle. Keep heels and toes glued together. Flex toes down toward face. Extend arms in front of shoulders. Crunch up and try to touch your toes. Do these nice and slow – no rushing!
Not sure what some of these moves are? Just YouTube them. I love YouTube because you can just watch the move and be done with it in like 15 sec rather than reading 2 sentences over and over again and saying “wait what, A says take your left hand…B says right leg…over..under..UGH.”
K, off to teach my Sunday Pilates class…I’ll be back later tonight. No worries! Your questions on facebook will get answered. I also have some commentary to make on your progress and non-progress situations. Will most likely write a post on this tomorrow!
