Barbell Strength Workout | Lower Body Focus and Conditioning Bonus
When my cold lifted, I decided to try a different style of workout. While I focused on the lower body more, I still made sure to create a workout that has me moving in all directions and maintain that balance between muscle groups.
To make it more intense, I dotted conditioning exercises between each strength exercise. Not only did this change the pace of things, but it made the workout fly by because I was having more fun!
This week, I also got to see some of the photos from my recent photo-shoot…
Thought I’d write about the experience in a new post It was an eye-opener! Stay tuned for that!
Here’s another favorite!
Anyway, back to today.
Complete the following sequence:
1) High Deficit Reverse Lunge: 3×8-12 reps (each leg)
- Bench Jump-Overs: 1×45 secs
2) Barbell RDL: 3×8-12 reps
- Burpees: 1×45 secs
3) Barbell Hip Thrusts: 3×8-12 reps
- Skater Hops: 1×45 secs
4) Seated Band Abduction: 2×15-20 reps
Then I set my Gymboss Interval Timer for 4 cycles (feel free to do more) of 15 seconds rest and 45 effort. I did 2 rounds of the following circuit:
- Two-Handed KB Swing
- Plank Climber
I’ll be back soon, with my Photo-shoot story
