Are you ready for one more workout?  I unintentionally left you hanging after sharing 3 of the 4 workouts I created while in Cabo last month (check them out here).  Well, here is the 4th one!  This Alphabet Full Body Blast is a tough workout, but as the name implies, it works your entire body and gives you cardio all in one.  You’ll need one set of weights (or heavy water bottles) for the bicep curls, and you’ll need to decide what form of cardio to do (I ran on the treadmill in the hotel gym, but feel free to walk or run outdoors, ride a stationary or standard bike, or do anything else to get your heart pumping!)

To do the workout, do your first burst of cardio (aim for 5-20 minutes).  Then, do 20 reps of each of the exercises on the right.  Do another burst of cardio, then do 10 reps of each exercise.  Finish with a nice stretch!  Here are explanations or video links for the moves:

  • Ab boats: These are V-ups … I just needed something that started with an “A”!
  • Burpees
  • Curls
  • Drop squat: Just a jump squat that starts with a “D”!
  • Elbow plank dips
  • Flying superman
  • Ground push-up: a standard push-up, but make your chest touch the ground each time!
  • Hundred ball crunches
  • In-a-circle lunges: Starting with your right leg, do one forward lunge.  Come back to standing, and lunge to the side with your right leg.  Come back to standing, and lunge backwards with your right leg.  That is one rep.  Alternate legs!
  • Jumping jacks

If you’re looking for more workouts, here is a link to many of my blog workouts.  You can also check my Pinterest workout page, and, of course, turn to “Start Here” … there are several great workout tips and tricks included in the book!

Now it’s your turn … What was your workout today?
