35-MIN FUNCTIONAL FULL-BODY WORKOUT
ALL LEVELS / functional full-body workout / 35 minutes
Equipment: Resistance band, dumbbells & exercise mat
Functional fitness is about making our lives easier. Why? Because it aims for developing and mastering movements that you replicate in your daily tasks, such as squatting, reaching or carrying objects. To do so, these workouts comprise compound exercises that target your whole body. Today’s training session is no exception.
It’s a 35-min functional full-body workout designed by Jakob Ritter, our personal trainer from EVO Mariahilfer Straße in Vienna. He has already provided us with 2 different functional workouts for strength, that you can find here and here.
You will be performing 5 exercises and the whole workout will take you around 35 minutes. Each exercise has its own rep range — we leave the exact number up to you — but you should perform them all for 4 rounds.
- Advanced push-up — 8-12 reps
- Resistance band pull-apart — 12-15 reps
- Crunch with single-leg raise — 10 reps each leg
- Superman lat pull — 12 reps
- Side squat — 12 reps each leg
