No Gym, No Problem!

Posted: June 24, 2014 in Uncategorized

Hey guys and girls!  It’s been a hectic couple of weeks for me with my job, the start of my business, and school coming to a close for my girls but I’ve been doing my best to stay on track.

Over the summer, I’m going to have much less gym time so I’m going to have to be creative with my workouts at home.  Luckily, over the past few years, I’ve accumulated quite a few useful pieces of equipment.  You don’t need to be at the gym to get a great workout. Don’t get me wrong, I love going to the gym – there’s just something about it that motivates me to work hard.  

Here are the things you’ll need to get a great workout done at home – a few key pieces of equipment, motivation, consistency, intensity, and a little bit of creativity.  Over the next few weeks, I’ll post some of the workouts that I do to give you some ideas.  

Tonight’s workout:  Back!  Here’s what I did:

Superset:

  • Pull-ups:  4 sets to failure with 4 different grips (standard, wide, neutral, and chins) – Yes, I have a pull-up bar in my bathroom doorway (don’t judge!)
  • One-arm DB Row:  4 x 10

Tri-Set:

  • Bent-over Barbell Row:  5 sets, 3 grips (overhand, underhand, and wide) x 15 reps
  • Weight Plate (Lat) Pullovers:  5 x 15
  • Seated Rows with Extra Heavy Resistance Band:  5 x 20 standard reps, 20 pulses at end-range

Tri-Set:

  • Bent-over Back Flye: 4 x 20
  • Bent-over (straight arm) Shoulder Extension: 4 x 10, last set drop set
  • One-arm Low Row with Extra Heavy Resistance Band: 4 x 12

Finisher:

  • 100 reps TRX Inverted Rows:  As many sets as it took to complete

Add in 20 minutes on my Spin Bike and I got a complete work out done in about an hour!
