“How are we doing folks? my name is Dennis Thomas. I’m a personal trainer here at Brick Bodies, Perry Hall. Today I’m going to show you guys how you can get the quick full body workout with only three simple dynamic tools. If we don’t have time to quite get to an hour class for our boot-camps, or his style in training, this is something we can do in a short amount of time. That can really give us a full dynamic workout.
Medicine Ball Slam
The first thing we are going to workout today with, is our medicine ball. I’m going to show you one quick move that we can do. It’s going to be a slim with a little bit of a twist. I prefer to use the medicine ball it doesn’t bounce. So we have to work to go down and get it. We going to start, feet facing forward, come to the side, slam. Then we’re going to squat get the ball back up. Other side, come down, slam. We’re going to repeat that through 15 to 30 seconds depending on our fitness level, then we’re going to move on to our next tool.
TRX- Chest Press
Our next tool we’re going to use is our TRX straps. We’re going to get them to mid-length, and we’re going to perform a chest press. We’re going to get in facing away from our ankle point. Find our straps, walk our feet back. The further we go back, the harder it’s going to be. Find that appropriate spot on the straps, engage that core, and we’re going to come right down to 90 degrees, slight pause, come back up. Never want that strap to touch the arms. We can cycle through that, again depending on our fitness level may be 10 to 15 reps, and then we’re going to move to our last tool, which is the Battle Ropes.
Battle of The Ropes
These are my favorite. Very dynamic, very fun. We’re going to grab our ropes, little bit of slack. We’re going to grab in this hand position, facing our ankle point, toes facing forward, little slack, and we have three different options for this. We can go double waves. Next one is alternating waves, one at a time. The last one we can throw in is side by side. Again, we can cycle through those appropriate to our fitness level. Find our base point, and then workout from there, and we can do the circuit style. One after the other, and we can get the quick full body workout.
Today’s corny joke of the day is, what do you call a nosy pepper? Give up these jalapeno business. I told you it was corny, I’ll see you here at the club.” – Dennis Thomas PT for Brick Bodies
