Happy Spring y’all!

It’s April and I couldn’t be more excited!  Warm weather is on it’s way and I have a few trips/vacations planned soon, so I am in a great mood.

Speaking of warm weather and vacations, several of our clients have been on, or are about to go on Spring Break and they were asking for workouts that they could do while on vacation!  Since a lot of them won’t have access to a gym or any type of equipment while they are gone, I put together 2 full-body workouts they can do while they are on vacation!

Keep in mind that the workouts I have put together are for the “lowest common denominator.”  That is, I made them as simple and easy as possible, so that they work for everyone.  You can easily up the intensity of difficulty of these workouts by adding weight, adding reps, adding rounds, holding the position longer, etc.  So if you do the workouts and don’t find them to be super challenging, make sure you adjust according to your ability level.

Alright, I won’t keep you waiting any longer… here we go!

Workout 1:

10 breaths in rockback (for those of you not familiar with the breathing, see this video, it will help explain)

    Great information. Lucky me I ran across your website by chance (stumbleupon). I have book marked it for later!

  2. Awesome workout! I’ve been feeling really unenthused about strength training lately but this was a great way to change things up and challenge myself.
