Have you ever tried looking up a full body workout on the internet, shit gets a little weird and a little crazy. It bounces you all over the place from HIIT to hot yoga. There is no consistency for what to do and how long to do it.
I don’t know about you but if I'm looking for a workout on the internet, I don’t need the shit to be complicated. I need dumb, stupid, simple, and easy to follow. I just want to listen to some hype music to get my energy flowing, moving my damn body and start burning some calories.
Ya feel me?
When shit gets like this, I follow this simple formula to get the workout accomplished and move on with my life. Keep reading because I’m about to drop this gem on you.
The Perfect Full Body Workout
Why this is my go to formula for my full body workout routines:
It’s beyond simple and easy
No equipment, some equipment (Who cares?)
You can do in the gym or at home it doesn't really matter (your choice)
Do what you love not what you hate
Make it as long or as short as you like
You can do this by yourself or with someone else
Lower body, upper body, core, and cardio (the whole nine yards)
It’s fun and goes by quickly too
How to create the perfect workout
This is how creating your own perfect full body workout
Lower body exercise
Upper body exercise
Do each exercise for 1 minute and adjust your rest time for your fitness level.
Cardio can be anything that you like. For example, you can do jumping jacks, burpees, mountain climbers, marching in place, running in place, treadmill, cycling, whatever you like.
Upper body can include anything from traditional dumbbell exercises like bicep curls, shoulder press, dumbbell rows, squats or anything with just your bodyweight like push-ups and chair dips.
Lower body can be weighted or unweighted. Choose exercises like squats, deadlifts, lunges, bridges, hip thrust, and even calf raises.
Core exercise can be planks, sit-ups or variations of a sit-up, leg lifts, oblique crunches, twists, whatever you would like to work on for that day.
This simple formula gives you a 6 minute round of exercise routines. It can boost your strength, muscular endurance, and get your heart rate up at the same time.
Now the power is in your hands, you pick the exercises, the amount of sets you want to complete, and embrace the sweat.
