I’m yet to meet an expert in the fitness industry that doesn’t believe in the benefits of a full body workout routine for women.
Now that I’ve seen the results in my personal life, I’m really excited to share what I’m doing with you.
I started a 30 day plan with 90% full body workouts for women.
The goal was to lose the last teeny bit of baby weight and, you know, just be active in general.
It took me about 40 days to do the 30 day plan (because, uhmm days off!) but yesterday was the last day and I cannot believe how effective it was!!!
Results of Doing a Full Body Workout Routine for Women
- I am now back to my pre-pregnancy weight
- I now fit into a pair of adorable houndstooth leggings that I could never fit into (even though it says “one size fits all”)
- My thighs don’t touch anymore (hallelujah!)
- And best of all, I feel physically stronger than when I first started! (today, i was able to carry my almost 20 pound son with his car seat and it was effortless. Those of you with big babies know what i”m talking about. Shoulder pain is real!)
I’m happy to share all 30 days of the workout routine but I don’t want to bore you!
So i’ll just focus on two really good examples!
Full Body Workout Routine Examples
Please note that this is not a prescription. It’s just a recap of two days of doing full body workout routines for women. If you want to do this routine, please adjust to your fitness level.
Half Jacks + Squat Day
10 seconds rest
60 seconds rest
x repeat 15 times
This particular workout routine might appear easy but believe me when I say it is HELL! My legs were soggy when I finished. Soggy!
Also, I couldn’t do the squats all the way through. I did jumping jacks for the last 5 sets.
Run & Jump Day
25 seconds running on the spot
25 seconds jumping jacks
25 seconds side to side jumps
x repeat 10 times with 1 minute of rest between each round
This workout wasn’t as brutal as the one prior but fun and challenging nonetheless.
I hope you enjoyed these two really good examples of full body workout routines for women.
I think the most important lesson I learned from doing this is to start with an intensity level that is comfortable and then work my way up from there.
You don’t want to rush out of the gate, guns blazing, and hurt yourself.
Take a slow and steady approach. Add in some consistency, and you’re well on the way to reaching your fitness goals.
