7/31/2013 Workout…jump rope w/ full body strength

I had a busy day yesterday, so I wasn’t able to post my workout. I finally got annoyed at myself for slacking on the workouts and the eating right. So yesterday was the day I changed it. I ate pretty healthy (although, I was at a loss for what to eat at dinner since Hubby didn’t come home and I didn’t have anything to cook…ate oatmeal with blueberries and then some Greek yogurt).  This workout is great for beginners and if you’re more advanced, you can always add more weight/more sets/more reps, however you need to modify it.  Its fairly quick and hits all the major muscle groups.

  • Warm-up (don’t forget to do this…move around your house, walk on the treadmill, do some squats, just move!)
  • 1 min jump rope
  • Squat with a shoulder press, 12 reps x 3 sets
  • 1 min jump rope
  • Lunge with a bicep curl, 12×3
  • 1 min jump rope
  • Dead lift with upright row, 12×3
  • 1 min jump rope
  • Tricep dips, 12×3
  • 1 min jump rope
  • push-ups, 12×3

It doesn’t seem like a lot, but my tooshie is screaming at me this morning! Remember to go as low as you can on your squats, and keep your back straight, shoulders back, and neck neutral during all exercises. 

Stay sweaty, my friends!
