The 10-10-10 Workout

We all have our birthday traditions, right?

Some folks start their big day with a special breakfast, while others take the day off work to do something exciting (or relaxing — which can actually be pretty exciting if your everyday life doesn’t really allow for that, right?).

Us? Well, we think a birthday is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate!  And by “celebrate,” we mean “celebrate how amazing we are by doing a solid workout!”

Obviously.

It’s a simple concept: 10 moves. 10 reps. 10 rounds. (Plus a five to 10 minute easy warm up to get your muscles ready to go!)

This workout can be done at the pace and intensity that works best for you. Been hitting the gym hard for years? Knock this out like a beast and try to finish each round in the same amount of time it took you to do the first. More of an exercise newbie? Awesome! Go a little slower, reduce the intensity if needed (so, star jacks can be regular jumping jacks, or even toe touches out to each side), and, feel free to build up to doing all 10 rounds.

This is a full-body workout and requires no equipment beyond a ledge or chair for dips, so you can do it wherever you happen to be. One note — if it’s a move that targets one side, your 10 reps are 10 reps TOTAL, so it’ll be five on each side. (Unless you want to take it to the next level and do 10 on each side, in which case, you go on with your bad self!)

    I like your idea
    but I prefer the workouts with the weights
    usually it takes about 2 hours

  2. Exercise boosts energy. Regular physical activity can improve your muscle strength and boost your endurance. Exercise delivers oxygen and nutrients to your tissues and helps your cardiovascular system work more efficiently. And when your heart and lung health improve, you have more energy to tackle daily chores. And after my exercises, I like to have the natural hgh supplements for a stronger and fitter body. I would like to recommend it to every individual as it’s natural and does not cause any harm to the body. It’s a must try!

    But what rest time should I have between exercises?

    Good putting!
    Definitely, nothing so favors fat burning as a high-intensity training. So, if you are looking for the best cardio workout, then HIIT is your choice. Full-body workouts are the core of muscles building and fat burning as well. It can be done whether in a gym or at home. Theoretically, the full body HIIT workout can replace both cardio training and regular strength training. If you’ve decided to increase your strength and maybe burn some fat I recommend you a great HIIT workout routine that fit both men and women. It simple to do and effective as well.
    You deserve a great body. Just make your first step!
