Back-in-Business: 2 Full-Body Workouts

I cannot believe it is Tuesday already. I swear it feels like a Monday. So basically I win.

Yesterday I completed Naomi’s Slim Sexy Strong Leg Routine with some upper body thrown in afterwards. I have been neglecting my legs in the weight room recently while relying on spin class to keep them strong. Well those spin classes have certainly helped because I completed the workout just fine and am not very sore today. I believe that some of my soreness in my calves, glutes, and hamstrings are due to wearing my Vibrams while lifting and walking. OBSESSED. I really wanted to wear them to work but that just not appropriate :-(. Do they make shoe covers?

Since revamping my studying for the ACE CPT test, I have offered my services to a couple of my friends. I am not charging for these sessions since I view them as practice and a chance for some feedback. My friends know that I am not certified, are cleared by their doctors to exercise, and have watched me exercise using my own programs before. We belong to the same country club (wow I sound like a total snob… truth is my parents belong to the club and I still mooch off free gym access), I have worked out with them before, and know their needs in terms of exercise.

This past weekend I casually trained Megan and Linda with great success and feedback. Here two full-body workouts I made for Megan. As a former gymnast with impeccable form, Megan is capable of more advanced moves. So I chose moves that have her step away from the machines to really challenge her balance and core.

Back-in-Business: 2 Full-Body Workouts

Complete each workout once a week on non-consectutive days for total body strengthening. Or complete 3 workouts a week, alternating between Workout 1 and 2.

Each color block represents a superset. Complete 1 set of each exercise without rest and repeat for a total of 2 or 3 sets depending on your fitness level.

Do in addition to a regular cardio routine to get your heart pumping (check out Tuesday Trainer below for some great ideas!). I have written an approximate weight range but choose a weight that challenges you in your final repetitions.

Make sure you check with a doctor before making any fitness changes. Enjoy!

Head over to Lindsay’s List for some great heart-pumping moves that can be added to any workout when you need that extra kick. I filmed myself doing jump-lunges in my sweet new shoes. It literally felt like I was jumping on air… until my legs screamed at me.

Happy Tuesday and happy lifting!
