Full-Body Workout Wednesday

HAPPY WORKOUT WEDNESDAY!

 

Today I wanted to give you a Full-Body-Licious style workout, my favourite type of workout! We will do everything in a superset instead of a circuit, just to change things up a little.

We will start with light weight and high reps and each set we do, we are going to drop the reps and increase the weights. FOCUS on keeping the heart rate high and really pushing yourself. If done this way, there is no need to add cardio after this workout!

Warm UP – grab your dynamic warmup from Curvalicious and perform two exercises on the upper body and two on the lower body.

Otherwise, warm up with some bodyweight squats, arm circles, jumping jack, or skip rope until your core temperature is elevated and your muscles are a little loosened up!

 

HOW THIS WORKS

 

In the chart given below, you will see each exercise and it’s superset exercise. You will perform each superset 4 times before moving onto the new superset. Under the reps per set category, you will see the reps descend, this is when you increase the weight.

REST – 40 seconds between each superset and once you catch your breath (60 – 90 seconds) move onto the next combo.

For most of the exercises are left without a weight, machine or cable instruction, such as a preacher curl. You can fill in what machine, cable or weight you would like to use as there are many of you that work from home. You can do dumbbell curls off a stability ball, machine or barbell for instance.

  3. Binu says:

    Thanks, just not clear on how the superset works. Each superset is done after each combo?

  4. Lidice Diaz says:

    @ Binu….I had the same question. :)

  5. Lisa says:

    I believe the workout will go like this:
    1. split squat 20 reps low weight supersetted with stiff legged dead lift 20 reps low weight.
    rest 40 secs
    then do
    split squat 15 reps a bit heavier weight suppersetted with stiff legged deadlift 15 reps a bit heavier weight
    rest 40 secs
    continue on in this fashion until you finish with the last reps of 8
    rest 60 to 90 secs
    start this same sequence with the next exercises
    2. walking lunges 20 reps low weight suppersetted with stability ball situps 20 reps
    rest 40 secs
    15 reps of those 2 exercises rest 10 reps , 8 reps etc.
    rest 40 secs between the 20,15,10 and 8 reps and rest 60 to 90 secs between the beginning of the next 2 exercises….
    again, this is how i interprut the workout to go.

    Look great! Thanks! Do you have an online forum?

  10. mary ellen says:

    I have been reading that preacher curls are a no-no exercise due to the odd positioning and possibility of rotator cuff injury. any thoughts on this?

  11. Linda says:
