How is your “Spring Forward” adjustment going? I feel like it always takes me at least a week to adjust to the time change. I don’t miss the morning daylight and I really appreciate the extra daylight after work, but for some reason it’s just harder to get out of bed. That lost hour is a doozy!
How about a new workout to help you get moving this week?
This workout is intended for individuals who have been exercising regularly for at least 2 months & can perform all exercises with good form. Remember to consult a physician before beginning any exercise program.
I originally wrote this workout for one of my running clients, as one of their weekly strength workouts. This one had such great feedback, I thought it would be fun to share with you! As always, be sure to focus concentrate on good form throughout the workout. It’s better to take it slow, take a break, or reduce the number of reps if needed.
I love superset workouts, so you get FOUR of them in this fun workout! As a reminder, a superset is one exercise performed right after the other (no rest). After both exercises in the superset, rest for 30-60 seconds before starting the next set. Lift as heavy as you can for each set, so that you’re having to work hard to finish each set – but not too heavy that your form breaks down.
You can watch video explanations of each exercise below:
- One Arm Row
- Incline Chest Press
- Ball Dumbbell Fly
- Dumbbell Pullover
- Lateral Raise
- Front Raise
- Shoulder Press
- Toe Touches
