The Ultimate Full-Body Workout

We get it; you are a busy person and can’t find time to exercise. Well, I have a little secret to tell you: You don’t need to work out for hours to build strength, lose weight, get into shape, and improve your overall health. You don’t need to go to the gym to perform this easy full-body workout. You can complete it in just 25 minutes.

A full-body workout for muscle growth is just what it sounds like: workouts where you train all of your major muscle groups in every session. It’s a great way to improve your fitness level even with a busy routine. With a full-body workout routine at home, you can improve your metabolism, build muscle, and lose weight. 

Benefits of a full-body workout

There is a wide range of benefits of a full-body workout:

  • It is the best way to ensure that all of your major muscle groups are engaged in a single workout and no muscle is left behind.
  • A full-body workout for muscle growth tends to include compound strength workouts which are highly effective for functional strength. 
  • The full-body workouts are ideal for people that have a random workout schedule. In case you miss a training session at the end of the week, you will not be missing out on training a specific part of the body. 

Who can do a full-body workout?

Total body workouts are a great choice for beginners as they engage and train all muscle groups, provide strength to all parts of the body, and teach the right movement and technique patterns. It means that anyone can perform an easy full-body workout.

You can get a lot of benefits from a full-body workout routine at home:

  • If you are busy and want to train all muscle groups in a single workout.
  • If you want to lose weight, full-body training will maximize calorie burn.
  • If you are looking for strength training or cardio blast, it is the best workout to get started.
  • If you want to tone muscles, a full-body workout will help you get defined muscles.

25-Minute Full-Body Workout

So let’s get you ready to start a full-body workout! We’ve had fun creating the perfect full-body workout session that you can add to your busy schedule. Perform three to five sets of 10 to 12 reps for each of the below-mentioned exercises. Perform these exercises with minimal rest in between. 

Here is the ultimate full-body workout:

Lunges

Lunges can be performed with or without weights. You can try different lunge variations once you have perfected your form. 

  • While standing, step forward your right foot and create a 90 degrees angle with your knees. Ensure that your knee is in line with your ankle. 
  • Position your other knee so that it is parallel to the floor and ensure to lower straight down instead of forward.
  • As you move, try engaging your abs. Step the foot back and then repeat on the opposite side.

Squat to Shoulder Press

  • Grab some dumbbells in each hand and place your hands on your shoulders.
  • Squat down while keeping your hands in the same position.
  • Now stand up and press your arms up above your head. 
  • You can make it easier by squatting down to a chair and pressing the dumbbells overhead and rising to a standing position.

Push-Ups

  • Get down on your hands and knees. Place your hands shoulder-width apart.
  • Now straighten your legs, resting on your toes. Ensure that your hands are in line with your shoulders.
  • Now bend your elbows and move your body downwards till your chest is close to the ground. Keep your hips intact.
  • Push the ground to move back to the initial position. 

Bodyweight squats

Body weight squat is a good full-body workout training to add to your routine. Once you have perfected the bodyweight squats, you can move to the weighted squats.

  • Stand while placing your feet hip-distance apart and arms beside your body.
  • Broaden your chest and engage your core while pushing your hips down and back like you are going to sit down.
  • Once your thighs become parallel to the floor, pause for a moment.
  • Now push yourself up to come back to the standing position.

Shoulder Press

  • Take a pair of dumbbells or any other similar item at shoulder level. 
  • Extend your arms fully by pressing overhead. 
  • Now bring back your arms to shoulder height.

This exercise can also be performed with resistance bands. Stand on a resistance band with your feet hip-width apart. Grip the handles with a pronated grip with your arms at shoulder level. Fully extend your arms by pressing the handles overhead. Now move your arms back to shoulder height.

Rebecca has been a great help to me during my long and challenging fertility journey. From my very first session with her, I felt instantly at ease. Rebecca took great care to really understand my story, my journey so far, my disappointments and my hopes. I found her questions incredibly insightful and perceptive. Together, we uncovered a number of unresolved issues and she handled all our conversations with the utmost sensitivity and empathy. Rebecca is genuinely passionate about helping anyone with fertility issues and I have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone who is looking for someone authentic and caring to speak to.

I was really struggling with stress and not knowing how to manage it effectively. It felt like everything was spiralling out of control and I was constantly reacting emotionally to situations. However, after just a few coaching sessions with Rebecca, I feel like I've turned a corner. She has helped me to see things (and myself) from a different perspective and given me lots of guidance on living a more purposeful and stress-free life. I'm now much more mindful of my thoughts and actions, and after implementing all the tools learnt in our sessions, I’m finally learning how to manage my stress and am feeling calmer and more in control than ever before. If you're struggling with stress, I would highly recommend Rebecca- she's truly transformed my life!

My children, aged 11, did Life Coaching with Coach Andrea. Andrea has a soft touch - she was very approachable, gentle, kind and patient with them, offering valuable lessons on how to lead a healthy life, in both mind and body. The materials were presented in a fun way, in the format of games and videos, so it was understandable and digestible. Having another adult, rather than us parents, talk with the kids helped them be more receptive to all the topics too. The kids really enjoyed her pre-recorded meditations for night time to help them relax before bed. The pre-teen/teen years can be an emotional roller coaster ride for both kids and parents, but I feel that Andrea’s coaching (she even helped me with some great pointers) has really helped us prepare with valuable tools to better navigate what’s ahead! It’s definitely a worthwhile investment and would highly recommend to anyone and their kids!

Frolic for Life’s Kids Life Coaching with Coach Andrea was such a great experience for my pre-teen son. Coach Andrea helped him with a transition to a new school and then a transition to a new country one year later! It was so helpful for him to have so many tools in his back pocket to deal with all of the emotions and big feelings. Having an extra adult in his life who he could confide in and trust with his feelings was really important to us. Especially living far from extended family. He really appreciated the role she played for him and felt pretty cool having his own “life coach”. I highly recommend Coach Andrea. She is so excellent with this age group. She really knows how to talk to pre-teens and earn their respect and trust without judgement.

The moment I heard about Kids Life Coaching from Coach Andrea, I knew I had to sign my kid up for it. Coach Andrea helped to show my pre-teen the tools she needs to cope with all sorts of things life throws at her now, and prepare her for what it will throw at her in the future. I think it was a bit challenging to get things out of her in the beginning, but after building a relationship with her, it became easier. I recommend Kids Life Coaching with Coach Andrea strongly because it’s so important for kids to learn these coping tools, or as she puts it: Superpowers!
