Check out below some great full body exercise tips by our member Nathalia and trainer Rob.

Four Benefits of Total Body Workouts

  • Total body training improves workout efficiency by minimizing the fluff to get you strong and muscular in a hurry
  • You’ll hit major movement patterns multiple times per week in a variety of intensities and rep ranges to stimulate the most number of muscle fibers
  • When in a time-crunch, total body training is best for making huge strength gains when you’re short on time.
  • To simplify getting Strong, Lean, and Muscular.

Standing Military Barbell Press

The standing barbell shoulder press is an amazing exercise which targets a lot of muscle and increases the stability of your core.

The movement should be carried out in a full range of motion. Clear it from the rack, rest it on your upper chest, press the bar upward until your arms are extended overhead, lower it slowly, put on the rack. Remember, use full range of motion for maximal results.

Romanian Dead Lift

Hold a bar at hip level with a pronated (palms facing down) grip. Your shoulders should be back, your back arched, and your knees slightly bent. This will be your starting position. Lower the bar by moving your butt back as far as you can.  At the bottom of your range of motion, return the starting position by driving the hips forward to stand up tall.

Wide Pull-up

Grasp the bar with an overhand grip and begin from a
dead hang” (arms fully extended, about shoulder width apart). Pull up toward the bar by bending at the arms and clear it with your chin. Pause at the top of the exercise and then lower back down under control. Return to the starting position and repeat.
