The BIG 7 Workout

Here's an example of one of my favorite workouts:

The "Big 7" I call it. This workout blasts fat like you wouldn't believe because each move is a multi-joint exercise. Lots of muscles are working at once which means you are burning more fat than just performing isolation movements. This routine is a great way to mix up a traditional split routine.

Use your common sense. I can't tell you the weight you should use. You'll have to figure out the weight that challenges you through the 15 reps.

For best results, perform this routine 3 times a week on non-consecutive days. I recommend performing your cardio on opposite days or immediately following this routine.

Execution: Perform 15 reps of each exercise without rest; then rest 1 minute and repeat. Try completing 3 rounds.

1. Pushups (floor, weighted, stability ball, or med ball)
2. Jump Squats
3. Standing Military Press or Overhead DB Press
4. Stationary DB Lunges
5. Pullups (use bar or assisted machine; perform 15 reps or as many as possible)
6. Romanian Deadlifts
7. Front Plank (hold up to 1 min)

Keep those New Years resolutions going strong!
