Today’s workout is a fun throwback routine. I filmed this workout when I was training for my first NPC fitness competition. I competed in the Bikini Category. This routine is body weight and doesn’t require any equipment. I combined some timed exercises with repetition exercises.
I like the challenge of both exercise formats because they work your body differently. Of course, you also have the option of completing this workout for time. Just scroll through the video to learn all of the exercises and set your timer. When done for time this routine will take 20-minutes. With the repetitions it took me approximately 25-minutes to complete. As always, the workout video and the breakdown of each exercise is listed below.
Of course, you should always be listening to your body as well. There is a line between pushing ourselves and pushing to the point of injury. So modify as needed, but learn to recognize when you need a break and when it’s time to push yourself just a little bit harder. One of the most important skills you can have is the ability to check in with yourself physically and mentally and recognize what you need on a given day.
I finally added a BenderFitness shop, with some comfortable workout clothes. If you want to rock a cropped hoodie or workout T-shirt or Tank check out my shop here: https://my-store-c67ce6.creator-spring.com
