Want Results? Change Your Eating Habits Too.
If you’re looking to feel healthier, gain strength, and/or lose weight, make sure to pair your workouts with healthy eating habits. Even after I became an instructor, I struggled to find the best way to keep myself energized enough to teach without overdoing it on foods that didn’t have much nutritional value (i.e. pizza, rice and beans, pasta, you know, all the stuff we like…).
That changed when I found Precision Nutrition. I gained the knowledge I needed to buy foods that were better for me and cool meals for myself and my family that are both nutritious AND taste good. If you’re looking to improve your eating habits and love to learn like I do, Precision Nutrition may be the solution for you. Click here to learn more.
One thing I hear from students all the time is that they wish they knew what to do on their own on days they don’t come to class. So many people have the motivation to get themselves to the gym, but the challenge is coming up with an efficient, effective routine they can perform. That’s why I decided to put together an e-book!
15 Full Body Workouts
As the title suggests, 15 Full Body Workouts contains 15 workouts designed to tone every single muscle in your body in 50 minutes or less. Each workout is in the oh-so-popular high intensity interval training (HIIT) format, which means you can burn more in this short session that you would completing the same exercises in a rep-based style.
Here’s how the workouts are organized:
Suggested Warm-up: Complete this portion on your own for 4-5 minutes before using the template.
Core: These exercises engage your abdominals, your glutes, and other stabilizing muscle groups.
Sets 1 to 3: Your main block of sets are made up of strength exercises that work larger muscles (with a few exceptions). Many are compound movements, so you work multiple muscles at the same time.
Finisher: The name says it all. You’ll get most of your cardio here with a few essential core and strength exercises peppered in.
Each set is run at an interval of 50:10. That’s 50 seconds working and 10 seconds transitioning or resting. The finisher is a five minute AMRAP, which means you have to complete As Many Rounds As Possible in the allotted amount of time.
Why I Created the E-Book
When I teach, I like to write my workouts on the mirror with a dry erase marker, so I can create a smooth and relatively seamless experience during class. At the end, students frequently ask if they can take a picture of the workout, so they can add it to their regular routine. My answer is always “Absolutely!” I’m honored that they enjoy my workouts so much! But I wanted to make it easier for them to access them in an easy-to-read format (rather than my chicken scratch on the mirror…haha). Thus 15 Full Body Workouts was born!
Download the Guidebook
Without further ado, I present to you the guidebook. It’s completely FREE to download, so have at it!
Note: There may be exercises you don’t recognize. To make it easier for you to use these workouts, I’ll be releasing videos demonstrating one block at a time on the My Life In Fitness YouTube Channel. Happy resistance training!
