My Go-To Full Body Workout

I like to think that I hate working out, but I would be lying to you and myself. I have to admit, though, that sometimes, I don’t really want to put in my maximum effort, but still want all the reward. So here’s a mash-up of all my favorite things to do which still make me ‘feel the burn,’ to this very day. Granted, I did increase my reps for each set, but this should do for starting off.

+ I use 5 lbs. dumbbells for core & upper body and 15 lbs. for lower body
+ Rest whenever needed to throughout workout, preferably before repeating jumping jacks and burpees

Start with a little warm-up:
30 jumping jacks, 20 high knees, and 10 burpees

Lower Body:

20 weighted sumo squats
20 good mornings
20 deadlifts
20 alternating kickbacks
25 banded side steps – squat pulse in between each step

*Repeat 30 jumping jacks & 10 burpees


20 knee to elbow crunches
10 crunches
25 bicycle crunches
20 heel touches
10 weighted sit ups
20 Russian twists with weights
20 mountain climbers
20 bird dogs – 10 each side

*Repeat 30 jumping jacks & 10 burpees


20 alternating lateral raises (10 front, 10 side)
15 push-ups (can be ‘girl’ push-ups) 
30 alternating dumbbell rows (15 each arm) 
20 overhead dumbbell tricep extensions

*Repeat 30 jumping jacks & 10 burpees

Repeat 2-3x depending on if you want it to be a ‘lazy’ full body workout or not.
