Your Best Body Workout – 2011 – Week 40 – Day 3

exercise irony Your Best Body Workout – 2011 – Week 40 – Day 3

Same general workout as Day 1 & Day 2

Pick 5 new groups and pick all new exercises.

Overview

These workouts are based on a model I often use for clients who are going on holiday.

It’s simple, can be printed on one page and yet it forces them to make some decisions for themselves.

This last point is pretty important to me as a big part of my “real world” training is education. While I love all my clients, I don’t want to keep training them year after year. Kind of like a mama bird, I teach them what they need to learn and when they’re ready…I shove ‘em outta the nest.

  • These workouts will require bodyweight and resistance bands only
  • They focus on muscular and anaerobic endurance
  • Are great fat-burners as long as you keep the intensity level turned up to 11
  • Allow you to get out of the gym and enjoy the weather before the snow starts to fly

The Workout

Warm-Up as per usual

After completing the warm-up, I want you to choose 1 exercise from 5 of the 7 groups listed below.

  • Complete the required reps as quickly as possible, minimizing rest periods.
  • How you organize the sets is up to you
  • Move quickly but with good form
