I posted a full body workout video on my YouTube channel. I wanted to compliment it with a blog post. This was my first time hitting the gym after taking a week off. I started with 30 minutes of cardio on the stair master and then proceeded to do the exercises listed below. I also have the video linked below, fast forward to 2:53 in order to see the workout.
Full Body Workout
- Push Ups: Start by laying on the floor, face down. Place your hands about shoulder with apart in front of you, palms facing down. Lift and hold your body at arms length. Next lower your body towards the ground until your chest almost touches the floor. Hold for a moment. Then push your body back up to where you started. Repeat 3 sets of 15.
- Plank: Start with your body in a push up position. Instead of having your palms face down on the ground and arms extended you’re going to lower your forearms to the ground. Keep your body straight and hold this position for one minute. Then rest for 30 secs, and repeat for 3 sets.
- Squats: Stand with your feet shoulder width apart. Lower your body down into a chair position by bending your knees and hips back. Once you have lowered down as far as you can go, lift yourself back up to where you started. Repeat 3 sets of 15.
- Burpees: Start by standing straight then crouch down into a squat. Then place your hands on the floor in front of you. Kick your feet back until your in a push up position. Next, lower your body down to the ground and then push yourself back up into a push up position. Afterwards, jump your feet up in-between your hands so you are in the crouch squat position again. Finally leap up into the air as high as possible with both hands. Make sure to keep at a fast pace when doing this exercise. Repeat 3 sets of 15.
