Full Body Resistance Workout For A Lean Body

Hi lovelies,

This is a full body resistance workout for women, that will tone up your body but without making you bigger or too muscular.

This style of workout will give you a leaner look, and is the type of resistance training that is in my 3 Steps to Lean Legs Program!

Complete each exercise for 45 seconds, straight after each other, with minimal rest. After you have completed 1 round, rest for 1-2 minutes. Complete 3 rounds in total.

Note – if you can’t do 45 seconds, aim for 30 seconds or as long as you can :)

FULL BODY RESISTANCE WORKOUT BENEFITS

Resistance training should be a part of your workout routine if you want to get lean and toned.

Why? Well, if you want to give your body tone and definition, you need to have muscles. And the way to build muscle is to do resistance training.

Any type of resistance training will help you build muscle – heavyweights with low reps, low weights with high reps, endurance based workouts, or even yoga.

But if you do the wrong type of resistance training, you might get unwanted bulky muscles like I did.

I’m a mesomorph body type (I can gain muscles very quickly) so I prefer bodyweight training. This type of resistance training has many benefits but these are the ones that I personally find the most important:

BODYWEIGHT RESISTANCE TRAINING WILL GIVE YOU A LEAN LOOK

I prefer to look leaner and I feel like this type of training gives me a much leaner look compared to lifting weights. I am not as strong as I was when I was lifting weights, but I am definitely more flexible, I have a greater range of motion and I don’t get as sore.

Most importantly, I feel much happier with the way I look now and I’m more confident than before. :)

YOU CAN DO IT PRACTICALLY ANYWHERE 

Bodyweight resistance workouts are great because you don’t need any equipment and you can really do them anywhere. So if you travel a lot or you just don’t have the time to go to the gym, this style of training will be perfect for you.

GLIDING DISCS

These are the gliding discs that I use. They’re great because you can use them on both hard and carpeted surfaces xxAmazon gliding discs for blog
