The Four-Move Full-Body Workout
Before beginning the workout, make sure that you have an Olympic barbell, weightlifting plates, and a set of dumbbells. Use this guide to determine how heavy your weights should be. Next, you'll need to warm up your muscles. If you have a favourite warmup, go ahead and do it. If not, try this dynamic warmup.
This workout should be performed in supersets, meaning you'll do two exercises back-to-back taking little to no rest. Once you've completed both exercises, take 30 seconds of rest. Repeat each superset for a total of three rounds.
- Superset 1, exercise 1 — barbell squat: eight reps
- Superset 1, exercise 2 — bent-over row: 10 reps
- Superset 2, exercise 1 — Romanian deadlift: six reps
- Superset 2, exercise 2 — overhead shoulder press: 12 reps
