I LOVE doing full body workouts. Not only do they help to burn more fat but they keep me from getting bored!

#1 Wide Leg Deadlift

Legs & Glutes

Helpful tips:

  • Do the most demanding move FIRST in your workout. These demanding moves can be your own personal preference. Though you want them to be moves in which you really emphasize strength and power over high rep and cardio.
  • A wide Leg stance not only feels better on my body, but it helps me focus the work on to my glutes.
  • Do not lock out your knees at the top of the move!

#2 Curtsey Lunge + Lateral Raise

Legs & Shoulders

Helpful tips:

  • When performing the lunge, most of the work is to be on the glute of the forward leg, not the quad of the back leg.
  • Keep your back in a neutral position.

#3 Side Lunge + Bicep Curl

Legs & Biceps

Helpful tips:

  • I’ll be a broker record and remind you to keep a neutral back! Not only is this to support your health, but it is what allows you to put the work on to the correct muscles.
  • When performing your bicep curl, I find a hammer curl to work most comfortably in this compound move.

#4 Curtsey Lunge + Tricep Extension

Legs & Biceps

Helpful tips:

  • You can never get enough curtsey lunges in your life!
  • By holding the weights forward during the move you allow yourself a bicep workout as well
  • Engage your core as your extend back with your triceps to keep your balance.

#5 Wide Squat + Lateral Raise

Glutes & Shoulders

Helpful tips:

  • Really sit back in to your squat to put most of the work on to your glutes
  • Do not lock your knees out at the top of this move. When you lock out at the top of a squat, you are essentially pausing all of the work… taking a break. You want to get the most out of your workout!

#6 Wide Squat + 90º Raise

Glutes & Shoulders

Helpful tips:

  • Think about raising up with your elbows and not your grip. This will keep the work in your shoulders and not your forearms.

#7 Push Up + Plank Rotation

Full Body

Helpful tips:

  • Start with no weight to familiarize yourself with the move first.
  • Rotate your lower body first and plant your feet in to the new position before lifting and rotating your upper body.
