Workouts On The Go!

Are you’re a beginner looking to finally, once and for all, get in shape?


Do you want to look and feel your best this summer, after being on lockdown for 2 years, but you don’t have a lot of time?


If you currently are a beginner that is currently training/working out consistently. We have the solution for your at home workouts. If you currently are a beginner and you are not currently training consistently, Coach Torres recommends you go purchase a made in 🇺🇸 kettlebell. 24 kilos for guys, and 12 kilos for girls is a good place to start, and follow along with the rest of us.


Pick one exercise from the first category on the left side. For example a “push up.” Next pick an exercise from the second category in the middle. For example a “Deadlift.” Lastly choose one exercise for your torso and midsection region. For example the “V-sit.”


Now that we have selected one upper body movement, the push up. One lower body movement, the deadlift. As well as one movement for the torso and mid-section, the V-sit. We now have a perfectly balanced training session. One exercise/movement for each region of the body. The categories from left to right, are split between pushing, pulling, and ground based abdominal movements.


The reason for this split is very simple. While one muscle group works, another muscle groups gets to rest, all while your heart has to continue to keep pumping blood throughout the rest of the body for obvious reasons.  


For beginners, people that have to travel for work, busy professionals, newly wed, or new to parenthood. Coach Torres suggests you find the time you make for “fun,” or the time spent “chillin” streaming movies, and replace 15 minutes of the alone time/fun time/screen time with “improve how you look and feel time.”


This type of adulting will enhance everything about you. If you are someone that likes “challenges” or you don’t want to be associated with being “average.” Welcome to the club!


This program is effective and will help you start seeing some results, or even maintain your momentum if you find yourself in a hotel gym on the road. However, if you do the same action repeatedly over and over, and expect a different outcome, that is the definition of insanity.


After three weeks your body will adapt to the workouts/training sessions/stimulus on your body. Therefore you will have to switch it up. If you think about it, it makes sense. You don’t go to school and continue to learn the same ABCs and 123’s from preschool, at some point during your educational history you had to learn something new and more challenging, well surprise, surprise the human body is no different.


Quickly, if we were to draw up the second training session/workout it would look like this. Squats from the first group. Pull-ups from the second group. Front Plank toe taps from the last group. These 2 workouts if we were to name them “A Day” and “B Day” respectively. The training sessions can be alternated each week so it will look like this. A, B, A, the first week and B, A, B, the second. Continue to follow this organizational structure to maximize rest and results.


Not mentioned is the “reps” per set. A repetition is the actual lowering and raising of the weight. A “set” is the actual group of reps. So 3 sets of 10 means the opposite of 10 sets of 3, even though they both equal 30 reps, the stimulus on the body is very different. Therefore to get everybody on the same page Coach Torres recommends 5 reps of each exercise. If you feel yourself get stronger just continue to do more sets of 5, in the 15 minutes, and not more reps.  


If you like this program and would like to change how you look and feel quicker. Feel free to reach out and let us know. Currently on our home page, we have a free week offer that can be used in person or virtually!


Lastly, with all exercise programs there is an inherent risk associated. You know your body better than some app over the Internet. Consult with your physician before beginning any exercise program to see if it is safe for you to participate in.


Good luck with your workouts, and thanks for stopping by!
