Raise your hand if you are needing a real butt-kicking workout! Okay, put your hand down, and go put your workout clothes on because I have a full body workout that will make you sweat and seriously kick your butt!
The other day I went to the gym feeling a little sluggish and unmotivated, but at the same time, I knew I wanted to get a killer workout in so that I would start my weekend off right. I knew I had to come up with a new routine or else I’d get bored and probably end up leaving before I finished my workout. Anyone feel me on that?!
I put my headphones in and sat there staring at all the equipment. My brain was dead. I had no clue what I was going to do! I scanned the gym for some ideas and finally decided on a full body workout that could be done in 45 minutes or less (I had a busy day ahead) and would also make me sweat and push myself!
Lucky for you, I am sharing this killer workout so that on the days your brain is working you don’t have to think twice about a workout routine!
For this full body workout we will be repeating the same 6 exercises throughout, however, the number of reps for each set will decrease by 1 rep each time. For example, the first set of each 6 exercises will be performed for 10 reps, the next set will be the same 6 exercises performed for 9 reps, the next will be the 6 exercises for 8 reps each, so on and so forth until you’ve counted down to doing each 6 exercises for 1 rep. Take a 1-minute to 2-minute break between each set, but try not to exceed 3 minutes because this is a high-intensity workout meant to be difficult and push you!
*Note: I am sharing the exact workout I did minus the weight because everyone’s fitness level is different. Also, your gym may not have all the equipment I used, so work with what you got and get creative if you have to!
