I get asked all of the time for workouts for clients to do either at home or at the gym in their own time. So in this post I have decided to put 3 Amazing Workouts (no kit required) together so you can do just that.
They can be done at home or at the gym, on your own. There is also no kit required, though in one workout equipment can be used if you have access to it but it isn’t essential.
I think it’s really important that a coach should have sampled all the exercises and moves that they are asking their clients to do. How could a coach know what is required from you during a workout if they haven’t even had a go themselves?
With that in mind, I can tell you that I have tried all these workouts. They can be tough if you put in enough effort but they can also be regressed for those that can’t do some of the exercises or struggle with the intensity.
Before you try them, make sure that you have done a short warm-up. This should include some of the movements you’ll be doing in the main workouts. Just make ensure that you have warmed up your joints and got your heart rate up.
Without further ado, here are the 3 Amazing Workouts.
As a workout, this one is pretty tough. It’s a variation of CrossFit workout called Cindy and it will certainly get the blood pumping.
It involves doing as many rounds as possible (AMRAP) in 20 minutes of the prescribed exercises. The key here is to just keep plodding on at a sustainable rate without running out of steam before the end.
The more simple the workout, the more difficult it is.
And they don’t come more simple than this.
I definitely had to stick a core workout in here and I have included a really good one.
This will certainly get your midline working into overtime leaving you with extreme muscle burn.
What’s great about this is that it also gets you working hard and I mean really hard. So not only will this start to tone up you core and make it really strong it will also make the body start to burn fat. If you put enough effort in it should start to give you extra calorie burn after you have finished.
If you want to make this last that little bit longer, you can always make it an AMRAP as well. Just add a time limit.
Good luck if you have to cough the day after this.
You may be looking at this and thinking,
“30 seconds work to 3 minutes rest? This is easy.”
If this is you, then you are in for a rude awakening. Completing this workout nearly made me sick.
This is an absolute killer and demonstrates exactly what HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) is all about and how it actually feels.
You can do this with or without equipment ( I did it on an assault bike). You could just sprint down the pavement outside your house.
The key is to put as much effort into the 30 seconds work period as you can. When you have your rest you should feel like you want to lie down and never get up again.
If you don’t feel like this, then you aren’t doing it right but don’t worry as you have ten intervals to get it spot on.
This will send the body into a state of (EPOC) Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption and cause you to burn further calories even after you have finished your session.
So there you have it, 3 Amazing Workouts (no kit required) that you can have a go at in your own time.
I hope you enjoy them and let me know what you think in the comment section below.
