I am setting my intention to post at least one workout each week for you. I have a good one to share today! I used it for a training client earlier this week and also did it myself that same day. I’m still feeling it two days later!
The last couple of workouts that I have posted have been bodyweight because many of you need workouts that can be done at home or with little equipment but today’s workout utilizes a barbell and a pull up bar (or you can use a pull up machine) in addition to a few bodyweight exercises.
Lots of upper body strength in this workout. My arms were shaking as I finished my last set of bench press. And my thighs are sore from the squats. You want to really push yourself with the weighted exercises. Get as heavy as you can while still maintaining form for the 10 reps. I gave suggested ranges but always scale as necessary. I’m giving you two options on the push ups, the decline variation is tough stuff!
Perform three to five rounds of the workout.. My client and I did it four times through and it was tough. That last set of pull ups and bench press almost did me in!
As always, let me know if you have questions and feedback is welcome if you try the workout!
