Welcome to another Quarantine workout!
As you might have noticed, we like long full-body workouts. During this lockdown, I found that these long workouts give me the right stimulus & challenge at the same time.
But first thing’s first – never skip your warm-up! It’s just as important as your actual workout. I could go on and keep rambling about the importance of warming up but I already did that in a different post.
If you have a little more time, give this extensive warm-up a try:
2 Rounds of:
20 reps Dumbbell Curl into Press
20 reps Dumbbell Deadlift
20 reps Pull-ups
20 reps Dumbbell Snatch
40 reps Situps
20 reps Push-Ups
20 reps Dips
20 reps Dumbbell Clean & Jerk
40 reps Russian Twist
20 reps Pistols
20 reps Dumbbell Split Squat
20 reps Burpee into Goblet Squat
How to approach it?
Don’t get fooled by the 2 rounds. It is a long workout and therefore make sure to start moderate and break up the sets in a way that you don’t have to take long breaks!
- Before scaling the movement try to scale the reps to 15 or 12 reps.
- If the movements are too hard, don’t be afraid to substitute with something that you can do e.g. instead of pistols do some lunges.
- The goal of scaling is to give you an effective workout.
After a long workout like that make sure to have a proper cool-down to avoid injuries & give your body the time to recover
