Cardio and Full Body Workout

Cardio and Full Body Workout

I’ve recently changed the way I train.  In the week it’s mainly free weights and the odd 5km run and at the weekend I now lay off the weights, do some cardio and some form of HIIT.  I put this workout together a little while ago and tend to do this on a Saturday morning.  This takes about 30 mins.  So work hard, work up a sweat then the rest of the day is yours to do with what you want!

My Spring 15 Minute Full Body Workout

My Spring 15 Minute Full Body Workout

I’ve lost a bit of motivation lately, hit a wall and not been as motivated to push myself.  I’m still enjoying my free weight sessions but want to get the heart pumping a little bit more.  So for the last month I have added a new full body workout to my fitness routine.

So firstly, I’ve been hitting the Cross-Trainer.  Ok so this is not part of the Full Body Workout I’m posting but for me 15 minutes interval training on the cross trainer is just the ticket to get the heart pumping.  Read my post 5 Cross Trainer Workouts To Try if you would like to have a go at HIIT style intervals on the Cross Trainer.

Then I’m then doing the following 15 Minute Full body Workout.  3 rounds of 5 different exercises.  All exercises in each round are performed back to back with a rest after each round; I generally rest for 30 to 60 seconds but it is entirely up to you.  The goal is to preform 3 rounds of this workout within 15 minutes.  Don’t worry if you struggle to do this but the fitter you get the easier it will become to complete all 3 rounds.  It’s quality over quantity!  Please make sure you warm up properly before the workout and try and find time for a 5 minute cool down and stretch after.

Beginners Full Body Workout

Beginners Full Body Workout

I like to think I know my way around a gym, particularly when it comes to the free weights.  It has taken time though and as we are into a new year a lot of people have made the decision to get fit tone up and lose weight. Joining a gym is normally the first step to achieving these goals for most people. However, it can all seem a little bit daunting especially when you are a few weeks in and memories of your Gym Induction are now rather fuzzy!  That’s when the motivation starts to wane and the gym visits can be in danger of becoming a thing of the past.

So I had a dig through my old workouts and happened upon my very first gym programme that got me properly back into exercise.  At the time I did  book some sessions with a Personal Trainer.  Not only did he help me with my technique but helped me gain the confidence to use the Gym Equipment and what to use in order to reach my own fitness goals.  OK Personal Trainers don’t come cheap but what I learnt was worth every penny!  So this is my very first programme, a full body workout that is not too complicated but still gives you a decent workout.  I occasionally use it now just add weights to some of the exercises and maybe add an extra set; it does the job!

So if you need some inspiration here’s my very first beginner’s full body workout:

My Full Body Workout #2

My Full Body Workout #2

This is my second of 2 full body workouts.  This workout and My Full Body Workout #1 have been put together on the basis that although I might be short on time I can still get in a decent workout.

No supersets involved, mid-range reps for me have allowed to push up the weights up for some of the exercises.  With warm-up and taking my time, this work out takes me roughly 40 mins.  I’ve been aiming to do this in rotation with workout #1 twice a week. so far that’s worked.  On the days I’m not at the Gym I try and get a run in or a HIIT session.  For ideas for HIIT check out my Pinterest Board – The Body Coach Workouts.
