Full Body Finisher to Finish Your Workout

Print Friendly

Have you added functional exercises into your routine yet? I still work them in one day a week, and I’m still waiting for my grace and nimbleness to arrive. Maybe it’s on back order. 😉

Here’s a quick functional workout for you to try. You can use it as an add on to your usual workout, or repeat it 4 – 5 times for a standalone workout. Make sure you rest at least a minute between sets if you repeat it. If you’re at the gym, you’ll need an empty studio or 30 – 50 feet or so of free space.

Get creative and try this in a park or even your backyard. Get your kids involved and challenge them to race you.

 Hardcore Full Body Finisher Workout

Sprint one length and run in reverse coming back then do Drill 1. Sprint one length and run in reverse coming back then add on with Drill 1 and Drill 2. Repeat and add a drill each time until you’ve added all 5 drills. So your last round would look like the following – Sprint down, run backwards back, 8 squats, 8 jumping jacks, 8 push ups, 8 alternating lunges, and a 60 second plank.

To increase the intensity, do the jump squats and jump lunges. To lower the intensity, stick with bodyweight squats and alternating lunges. I did this on Monday at the end of my workout and was huffing and puffing about halfway through. The Kid opted to watch me from the living room sofa as I ran back and forth in the backyard. So much for challenging the kids at my house. 😉

Let me know if you have more luck.
