The “I Want It All” Workout

by tinareale on October 21, 2013

Hey, hey! The past few Move It Mondays haven’t shared a full workout, so I thought I owed ya one. I tried to figure out if I wanted to do a cardio workout or a strength based workout. Then I decided, why not do both? I figure most of us appreciate a workout that hits everything all in one go. Which is why I created this “I Want It All” workout. Burn loads of calories, work your strength and your cardio, and have fun while doing it. Or at the very least feel hardcore when you’re finished. Winking smile 

 I Want It All Workout

As always, go at YOUR level of fitness and feel free to sub out any exercise that doesn’t suit your body. This workout is designed as a circuit, where you move from one exercise to the next with minimal rest between exercises.

The first goal for this workout is to complete 30 seconds of each exercise with minimal rest between exercises. Rest for a full 2-3 minutes at the end of the circuit. The next goal is to go through the circuit a second time and complete 40 seconds of each exercise with minimal rest between exercises. Once again, rest for 2-3 minutes before moving through the circuit again. For the third and final goal of the workout, go through another round of the exercises, doing each exercise for as long as possible.

Here is an Exercise Library for reference on some of the exercises that are less widely known:

I warn you…they are a certain kind of evil. But work oh so good. ;)

Yep, this pretty much covers it all ! I love it! If I want to really push myself and work every part of my body, I have go have burpees in the workout.

I love the idea of going longer for each round and ending with a round that is maxed!!!
Thanks for sharing!

It’s a challenge. And if you’re able to go for the longest during the final round, well then you’re a super hero!

11 Stephanie @ My Freckled Life October 21, 2013 at 9:23 am

Great workout! I love that every round is just the slightest bit longer! That’ll definitely make me push it harder!

I love workouts that combine strength and cardio! So efficient!

Pinning this for when I’m done with marathon training and can add more variety again… so ready!
