January Workout

I hope your New Year is heading off in the right direction.

I waited to post this month’s workout, until the hype of the New Year was out of the way. So now, two weeks in to the New Year, you have a brand new set of exercises to follow.

You have two options with this workout.

You can either do all of the lower body exercise sets back to back and then transition to the upper body exercise sets back to back, or you can alternate back and forth between the two.

Option 1
1a) Romanian Deadlift 3 x 10
1b) Bodyweight Squats 3 x 10
1c) Lateral Lunges 3 x 10/10

2a) Dumbbell High Pulls 3 x 10/10
2b) Pledge Push Ups 3 x 10
2c) Contralateral Planks 3 x 10/10

Option 2
1a) Romanian Deadlift 3 x 10
1b) Bodyweight Squats 3 x 10
1c) Lateral Lunges 3 x 10/10
1d) Dumbbell High Pulls 3 x 10/10
1e) Pledge Push Ups 3 x 10
1f) Contralateral Planks 3 x 10/10

As you progress try increasing the sets, add a few reps, or increase the weight.

Let me know how it goes for you below.

  1. how can i modify this if my knees are not strong?

  2. Looks like a great workout! Thanks for sharing these! I emailed several weeks ago (around Xmas) about online training and don’t think I heard back. Could you send me more details? Thanks!

  3. Judy, the romanian deadlifts should help with that. It’s tough for me to diagnose what the underlying issue with your knees is. My suggestion would be to ease into anything you decide to do especially if the weakness is to due injury. And check in with someone local to you for professional guidance, ask around to see how comes recommended in your area.

    Muasjen, I didn’t see that email and would love to get more information to you, please email your questions again so I can get back to you. Use…
