Here is a Full-Body Workout Plan For You!

If you are visiting a gym regularly and working out with dumbbells or the machines at the gym, you are possibly going through the same routine during your visit before calling it a day. Does this information sound familiar to you? If so, you are possibly not getting a full body workout despite visiting the gym of your choice.

Do you believe that the exercises you are indulging in are really effective? It is generally difficult to figure out the best moves for your body or know when to change your routine unless you have an advanced degree in physical fitness. However, it is not at all difficult to create a full-body workout plan because it is pretty straightforward and is also important. Having a program for a full body workout will not only give you a purpose but will save you from going on a trip without any directions.

“I’m not in the best shape, but I want to prove to myself I can do something that seems insurmountable and inspire others by showing them no matter where they are in their fitness goals, they can do it, too.”Ruben Studdard

If you want to create a full body workout plan, you need to learn some of your basic movement patterns. We have some suggestions which will ensure that you cannot go wrong while working out. Here they are:

  • Lower body push.
  • Hip hinge.
  • Vertical push.
  • Vertical pull.
  • Single leg movement.
  • Horizontal push.
  • Horizontal pull.

Once you are accustomed to these suggestions, you will realize that there are some exercises which can be accommodated with these patterns. This is the best part of creating a full body workout plan.

 How Should This List Be Used?

We have provided a few suggestions that you can follow for of each of these body movements.  Doing a single exercise from every section will help you get accustomed to the full body workout plan you have created. At this stage, you could very well begin to wonder how the plan will work. Initially, pick up a medium heavy weight that would tire you out by about 8 to 10 reps. If you are a beginner, limit yourself to about 2 to 3 sets. If you are accustomed to such exercises and are a fitness fanatic, you can go ahead to four sets. Remember that you need to warm up first and cool down after you have finished.

Lower Body Push

This exercise will help you to target the muscles in the lower body, and the best-known example of this exercise is known as the squat. As a beginner, you can stand with your feet at hip-width with weights in both ends held at chest level. You bend your knees while ensuring they do not go past the toes while keeping your chest up and the back straight. Try to bend your knees at a 90° angle before straightening up.

Hip Hinge

A hip hinge is a movement that allows you to flex or extend your hips. Despite working the same muscles as in a squat, you will be engaging them differently.

“True enjoyment comes from activity of the mind and exercise of the body; the two are ever united.” —Wilhelm von Humboldt

Vertical Push

The upper body movements will build up strength in several muscle groups. You will again be engaging the muscles differently. It is this difference that will make your workout appropriate for you. For the vertical push, you should use your shoulders, upper and middle back, and arms.

 The Vertical pull

The vertical pull will give you upper and middle back, shoulders and chest the exercise they need. You must be prepared for this because you will need to anchor a resistance band before you begin the exercise.

Similarly, you can use any of the workouts mentioned earlier according to your convenience. Have confidence in the knowledge that you have created a full body workout plan that will provide the type of workout you have always been looking for.
