Happy Wednesday, y’all! In my case, it’s actually Happy Friday. I’m so thankful to have tomorrow and Friday, as well as next Monday, off! I’ve been looking forward to it since Spring Break ended and I’m glad it’s finally here. Anyway, today’s post is a total body blast workout. I’ve shared an upper body workout and a lower body workout, so I figured it was high time I shared a total body workout!
-Dumbbells and a smile 🙂
This is a fun total body workout that requires very little equipment. Just grab a pair of dumbbells (or two) and you’re good to go! Moving quickly between rounds and circuits will get your heart rate up and get in that cardio effect as well. 🙂 If you give this one a shot, let me know how you enjoy it!
I’ve read a lot of conflicting things when it comes to total body workouts. Some trainers advise staying away from them if your goals include building a great deal of muscle. Other trainers recommend working your whole body a few times a week. Maybe you trainers out there can tell me why this might be. I’m totally open to hearing why there are so many varying opinions — even if it’s just YOUR opinion! I’m not a trainer, or anything close. Personally, I do total body workouts because I truly enjoy them — they are my favorite! You probably can tell this if you’ve been reading my weekly workout posts. I incorporate area specific workouts a few days a week, but mostly stick to total body work.
Your turn: What types of workouts do you enjoy most? Do you have any idea why there are so many conflicting opinions around total body training?
