Some workout ideas: Part 3

When I go to the gym I like to focus on solid compound strength moves since at the gym I have access to heavier weights and equipement that I don’t have at home. I save body weight work and plyometrics typically for non-gym workouts since I don’t need equipment for them. They can be done anywhere. I have not had a lot of time lately to spend at the gym. I have only been able to get to the gym 2-3 days per week. Because of this I have been doing full-body strenght workouts. Here are some sample strength workouts. I typically do 3 sets of 8-12 reps for each exercise.

Sample strength workout 1:
1) back squats
2) deadlifts
3) barbell rows
4) clean & press
5) bench press
6) lying or hanging leg raise

Sample strength workout 2:
1) back squat
2) weighted bridge
3) leg extensions
4) incline bench press
5) assisted chin-ups
6) face-pulls
7) cable wood-chops

Sample strength workout 3:
1) sissy squats
2) sumo goblet squats
3) glut kickbacks
4) dumbell bench press
5) seated row
6) shoulder press
7) v-ups

    I love how you’ve targeted every major muscle group with these workouts! So many of my friends falsely believe that weight training is just for the upper body. They obviously have never done a weighted bridge or a sumo squat (:
