Wednesday Workout: The “4X10 Lower/Upper/Core” Workout

Good morning! Thank you all so much for your kind words/responses to my blog post yesterday. I never know how people will react to these posts or if people will be able to relate to them, so it’s nice to not only get feedback, but get positive feedback 🙂

I have a great workout for you today, now that we are on the topic of working out 😉 I did it the other day when I didn’t want to do traditional cardio and instead wanted to focus more on strength training. These days, I’m nowhere near where I was a while ago in terms of strength, but that’s okay. I’ve been teaching a lot and haven’t had consistent days for training which makes it hard for me to stay consistent with strength training enough to see gains. Instead, I’ve been lifting a little lighter, but incorporating more exercises into my workouts and moving through them with less rest which keeps the heart rate up.

For this workout, you can use dumbbells or kettlebells- I used kettlebells if you’re wondering. You’ll complete 10 reps of each exercise and move to the next with little to no rest, trying to save your rests for the break between rounds. You’ll do 4 rounds total. To finish, I threw in a quickie metabolic finisher for ya 😉

The finisher consisted of 3 rounds of 20 seconds of rope slams and waiter carries there & back. Rope slams get me every.single.time!

I hope you have a great rest of your day- and maybe you’ll give this a try!

Questions for you: Do you go through phases with what types of workouts you do? Do you prefer heavier lifting or workouts like this that are done with lighter weights?
