This workout is the perfect way to kick off the week. Happy Monday!
My current workout plan is totally focused on weight training. It’s time to build some more lean muscle in order to burn more fat and calories. It’s the beginning of December which only means one thing; a new year is just around the corner. This time of the year I get so super motivated to “be better next year” and I end up coming up with all these different ideas/plans for the year to come. I’m not the one to really make a New Year’s Resolution, but I always aim to become healthier and more fit. That’s where the weight training comes in.
Moving forward, I will be much more focused on weight training and will be sharing a lot more of these types of workouts. Bodyweight workouts will still exist, more so in the form of cardio. I feel like over the past two years, I’ve lost my focus. Not just in fitness but in many things. I’ve been looking in the wrong direction and it’s time I turn away. I’m now moving in a new direction, one that I once loved. Weight Lifting.
It’s time to focus on weights and get ripped! 😉
Complete the following exercises in the exact order below.
5 sets // No rest between sets
10 Stiff Legged Deadlifts
10 Barbell Squats
4 sets // 60 seconds rest between each set
40 Walking Lunges
4 sets // No rest between sets
50 Standing Ab Rotation
15 Barbell Ab Roll Outs
For the deadlifts, squats and walking lunges you want to aim to use the heaviest weight you can for the reps provided. The final 2 – 3 reps should be a struggle. If it isn’t, then go up in weight. For the standing ab rotations, weight should be a little lighter until you are totally comfortable with the exercise. Remember not to twist too quickly, focus on the abdominals to force the movement.
Gym Move: Standing ab rotations are also really good to do with a cable. Hold your arms straight out in front of your chest, with both hands hanging onto the handle attachment. Then twist to one side, completing all reps on one side before moving to the opposite side.
