Full Body Blitz

by James Kerrison on July 9, 2009

Check out this new workout I have used with some of my clients this week.

Last week I was talking about how getting stronger can make your fat loss efforts more productive. This workout will cement that idea in your psyche. The more you can lift through this workout, the more calories you will be burning (during and after the workout) and the closer you will be getting to achieving the body of your dreams.

It starts off with a Crossfit inspired combo. Here you want to use a weight that is challenging (question why you’re doing it challenging!) and rest as little as possible. Check your time on the stopwatch and try to beat it next time.
Then we move on to three mini circuits working the whole body. Keep the rest short and intensity high.
A1) Clean + Press
A2) Dumbell or Kettlebell Swing
21 reps, 15 reps, 9 reps for time (Rest as little as possible)

B1) Front Squat
B2) Push Up Rotation
4 sets of 10 reps with 60 seconds rest (ie B1, B2 rest 60, B1, B2, rest…)

C1) Romanian Deadlift
C2) Swiss Ball Jack Knife
3 sets of 15 reps with 60 seconds rest

D1) Bulgarian Split Squat
D2) Chin ups (or pulldowns)
4 sets of 8-12 reps with 60 seconds rest
