A Full-Body Workout

July 20, 2011

Here’s a workout I’m loving, my clients are loving, and you’re going to love. I promise. Just as soon as you’re done cursing my name you’ll love this workout. It should take about 45 minutes to complete and you will need some gym equipment for this one. Each exercise should be done with either your body weight or an added weight that makes you work for the last few reps. Don’t sell yourself short with a workout, always push beyond your comfort level. Make it count!

Finito!

After a hard workout I always refuel my muscles, mind, and body with protein and carbs. My favorite recovery dish is a green smoothie. Thick, lucious, green, and topped with Love Grown Foods Granola.

I know you’re just dying to get this workout in so I’ll sum up this post with a good luck, have fun, and recovery recipe tomorrow!

What are your 3 favorite workout moves?
What is your favorite recovery meal/food?

my faaaaavorite recovery meal (meal in general) is roasted kabocha and a protein smoothie in a bowl.
well, i could eat kabocha for every meal, so it’s really not a fair contest 🙂

Ahh this is a fabulous workout! Routines like this are my favorite- so tough but they produce the best results
My favorite recovery meal is a big bowl of cereal, full of necessary and delicious ingredients for recovery 🙂

Hey girl!! Hope life is treating you well!
love the workout and will definitely give it a go:)

My three fave workout moves are bulgarian split sqaut (1 1/2 rep style!!), renegade rows, and upright barbell rows!
My fave immediate recovery fuel is coconut water or Brendan Brazier’s recovery drink. Then it’s VOO when I workout in the morning or eggs and lots of greens when I workout at night!

Have a great day:)

I can’t pick my three favorites, it really depends on my mood. I’ve been into upper body lately, so push ups, upright rows, and curls are great.

I chow on hard boiled eggs after lifting….straight up protein!

Favorite recovery meal is some time of smoothie with lots of greens!!! We used to have a veggie juice afterwards but now we like our smoothies afterwards 😉 Favorite workout moves are push-ups, backward lunges, and mountain climbers!

This workout looks great! I suppose i won’t think it’s great when i’m doing it but i can’t wait to try it! My favourite exercises are always changing, but at the moment i’d say front squat, hang clean, and glute bridge.

I love big smoothies for recovery, they always seem to hit the spot 🙂
This workout is crazy cool, thanks for sharing! My three favorite moves are probably upright rows, deadlifts, and prone curls.
