Extreme Sweat Full Body Home Workout
Today's workout is a tough one! I was super sweaty, and definitely felt like I worked my entire body. I went through the entire workout twice. I used my stability ball, and a kettle bell, but the workout can also be done with body weight only.
Body Weight Modifications:
-Ball Pass: can be done with no ball, just be sure to count the reps the same way you would with a ball.
-Chest Lift: can be done lying on the floor on your stomach with your toes pressing into the ground. Just your upper body, and squeeze your glutes, while keeping your hip bones in contact with the ground.
-Ball Pull with Straight Legs: you can substitute Donkey Kicks or Frog Jumps for this exercise. I meant to demonstrate this in the video, but I got caught up and forgot. (sorry!)
-Butt Lift and Tap: Lay on the floor on your stomach, hips touching the ground. You can rest your forehead on your arms. Lift your legs and feet so that your knees are off the ground and tap. You can do reps by lowering and lifting your legs, or do this as a timed exercise instead.
-Split Squat: This can be done without weights, as a body weight exercise.
Enjoy the workout!
Beginner: 10 reps, 30 seconds
Intermediate: 15 reps, 45 seconds
Advanced: 20 reps, 60 seconds
Repeat 1-2X. I went through twice, the second time with no modifications. The first time through I started losing form on the decline pushups so I complete the last five without the decline. Remember, form is always number one! See my note above for modifications if you don't have a stability ball.
