My Full Body Workout #3
I hurt my back about over a couple of months ago; it was my own silly fault and I’m still feeling the after affects but the discomfort has now moved to my left hip. Sustaining an injury whilst training can take a long time to sort, weeks even months; it’s been a painful lesson for me and has knocked my confidence and made me re-think my fitness goals. So until sorted, I’ve cut back on the Rack Pulls and Back Squats and instead am using the Leg Press more to work Quads and Hamstrings. Oh and taken warm-ups, cool downs and stretching a little more seriously.

With any workout remember to warmup and cool down properly; this will help speed recovery and reduce risk of injury. Click To Tweet
So here’s my latest full body workout, if you want more rep’s to tone just decrease the weight. Also maybe superset where possible, this will get the heart pumping and make your workout more intense! In this full body workout I use Opposing Muscle Group Supersets (Put together 1 and 2, 3 and 4).
I’ve added links if you are unsure of some of the exercises.
Lat Pulldown (Wide Grip Pull Down Exercise)
Seated Leg Curl (Hamstrings and Glutes)
The Dead Bug exercise is a great core exercise and makes a change from crunches or Leg Drops.
