Over the past few years, I have incorporated full body workouts into my (and my client’s) program with great success.  For my first few years of regular workouts, I did one body part a day almost exclusively.  While I still follow a similar plan, I do feel that full body workouts have a valuable place in anyone’s routine.  I am always looking for new, fun and efficient ways to train.

This workout is great when you’re having a super busy week and miss a workout or two (it happens to everyone, don’t stress).  A full body workout is also a great way to maintain your physique, or if you are new to the workout scene and want to ease your way into it. Summer is right around the corner, and this fat blasting session will help you shed some excess winter weight and get lean in time for beach season.  It combines muscle building compound moves with killer cardio exercises like battle ropes and jump squats.  Your heart rate will be elevated throughout the workout and you’ll be burning calories all day long.
