Fitness Kick Start: 3 Full Body Workouts.
To continue with my workout ADD, I wanted to share these full body workouts that I did a few weeks ago.
Because, heavens forbid I do the same workout in a row. I might lose my mind. Or crave veggies. Or something.
Here’s what went down:
Day 1: 4 sets x 10
alternating lunges & pull-ups
step ups & pushups
seated rows & overhead presses
side raises & triceps dips
Day 2: 5 sets x 8
leg presses & lat pulldowns
deadlifts & incline chest presses
rear delt flys & biceps curls
Day 3: 3 sets x 15
walking lunges & prone dumbbell rows
stability ball squats & overhead presses
leg exts & incline pec flys
front raises & overhead triceps ext
All over the board , eh? I used to think that I had to do 10-12 exercises per workout just to get a good workout. If there is anything I have learned over the last few years it is quality over quantity.
In all of these workouts, I usually move back and forth from exercise to exercise. I love strength training, but I hate just waiting around to “rest” in between sets. I enjoy moving the entire time, but if I really need the rest I will take it.
I’m also glutton for suffering.
Not really. But I thought it sounded cool.

This is a really good one.
These look like great workouts! I totally agree with you, waiting in between sets is sooooo boring – I always try to pair things up and save my rest for in between exercises….usually I just grab a sip of water and move straight to the next pair of exercises. Sometimes I cycle through three different exercises, too
These are awesome. I’ve been looking for more strength workouts. I’ll be doing these on my non-run days ;)

Bahaha – that’s why I <3 you, Jessica! Ok, and for your delicious recipes and kickass workouts :)
I rest about 15 seconds between sets. I’ve been told that’s bad, but I just want to get it over with!
I love, love love your workouts. These are my kind of workouts! No boredom, just get in, get out. Now if my cranky elbow would just cooperate I could actually get back to doing these kinds of workouts and stop with the old lady ones! Thanks for your tips (and treats!)
Thanks for posting these! I do a 4X10 met con routine every day after my cardio and I’m always looking for new ones so I don’t get bored. You can only do so many dips and mountainclimbers, ya know! Adding these to my list!
