This morning, I completed a Full Body workout that I designed. Thankfully this workout was better than a couple of the other ones I designed. Thursday’s workout really wasn’t that great & left me feeling less than satisfied.
I started off with a few sets of Dumbbell Goblet Squats:
From there it was on to a series of Upper Body supersets.
First up was Alternating Dumbbell Bench Presses:
Paired with Wide Fly Push Ups:
I did a few sets of each exercise in a superset (back to back) fashion. My chest definitely felt that!
From there I then moved onto the next superset which started off with Dumbbell Y-Presses:
Paired with Pike Push Ups:
My shoulders were on FIRE after a few of these supersets!!
Last superset targeted the back. First exercise on the agenda was the Underhand Grip Inverted Bodyweight Row With Feet on Bench:
Paired with Side to Side Overhand Grip Bodyweight Inverted Rows:
(Click here for a demonstration.)
I kept my rest periods relatively short (30-60 seconds) so that added a slight cardio component to the workout.
All in all, I really liked blending the weighted & body weight exercises. I especially liked the inverted rows. Talk about a versatile exercise that can really add some muscle! At some point I am going to incorporate other variations of Inverted Rows into my workouts.
Variations such as:
One-Armed Inverted Rows:
and Towel Grip Inverted Rows:
There are many other variations out there that I will eventually get around to working with. If you aren’t utilizing Body Weight Inverted Rows, why not start?
I’ll be back in the morning with a weigh-in update. Have a great Saturday everyone!!
