FridayFocus: Full Body Workout

Many people just don’t have the opportunity to take time out for themselves and exercise anymore, so when they do workout they need to make sure they’re getting as much out of it as possible.

That’s why we’ve devised a full body workout, so you don’t have to worry about wasting what precious time you have.

The exercises we’ve chosen are all you need to work almost every muscle in your body, so you can make the most of your time without compromising on quality.

 

  • Squat

The squat is an exercise which every PT, bodybuilder and professional athlete recommends. It works multiple muscles including your hips, glutes and hamstrings, and also improves overall balance. A must for anyone trying to get in shape.

  • Lunges

Lunges are one of the best movements around. Lunges work your quads, glutes and hamstrings making them a great exercise for working multiple muscles.

  • Push Ups

One of the first exercises we’re ever taught is the push up and when you start to look at the benefits it becomes clear why. Push ups are known to work your chest but also have huge benefits for your triceps and core, improving balance and strength.

  • Burpees

Tell any fitness class they’re doing burpees and you’ll be met by groans of dread. However, burpees are one of the best exercises about, especially when trying to work as much of your body as possible. Burpees work exactly the same muscles as squats and push ups, as well as working your legs and adding in that much needed cardio.

  • Deadlifts

Often considered the best exercise for an all body workout, the deadlift is an exercise that everyone from Arnold to you should be doing. When done right deadlifts offer a near full body workout of its own, working the back, calves, quads, hamstrings, glutes, core and forearms. Because the weight is on the floor there isn’t an opportunity for you to use momentum to make the movement easier and that’s why it’s such an incredible exercise.
