Iím going to apologize in advance for the length. Sorry.
My full body workouts are around 40 minutes long (anywhere from 38 minutes to 46 minutes). An example of one strength-training workout would include single leg bridge-ups, standing abduction, runnerís lunges, lateral lunges, lung & twist with medicine ball, calf rocking with dumbbells, dumbbell chest press, reverse plank, one arm dumbbell rows, dumbbell shrugs, airplane pose, t stand, plank, and hip flexor. Depending on my mood and energy level, I may even throw in pushups, bridges, and/or bridge-ups.
I am very literal. Therefore, when I hear full body workout, I think I need to literally do a full body workout. Iíd like to keep my strength training closer to 30 minutes and still feel like Iím getting a good workout. I have a 6 lb. medicine ball as well as 10 and 15 lb. dumbbells here at home. I have access to heavier weights at the YMCA, although I prefer doing my strength training at home.
I know this is a lot to ask, but could someone help me figure out what would be a good routine. Iím open to doing different things each day (aiming for 2 to 3 strength training sessions/week in the afternoon). The workout calculator helped when I first started here. Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.
