Workout Wednesday { Workouts For The Week }

For several years I followed a traditional "bodybuilding" type workout split.
I would train back and biceps on one day, chest and triceps on one day, legs on 
one day, and shoulders and abs on one day. If I got busy, or got off "schedule," I
would put shoulder/ab day in with either back or chest day.

However, the workout split that is working best for me right now is full body 
workouts, done three times a week.

I typically do strength training on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

For example. this would be Monday's workout...

This would be Wednesday's workout...

This would be Friday's workout...

 If Monday, Wednesday, and Friday workouts aren't best for you, it is perfectly fine
to complete Day 1's workout on Tuesday, Day 2 on Thursday, and Day 3 on Saturday.
(Just remember that you need to allow a day between strength workouts for your muscles to 
rest and recover.)

Also be sure to add a warm up before you strength train, a cool down after,
and time for stretching and flexibility. I usually warm up on the treadmill
and also with dynamic movements such as leg swings, arm circles, etc.

Here are more options for warm ups...

Life is crazy, busy, and unpredictable a majority of the time, so having workout 
options is always a good thing!
