5 Basic Movements – Looks Easy, But…

Workouts don’t have to be complicated to be effective. In fact, some of the most effective—and the most challenging—workouts are those that seem the simplest. Then, when your arms and legs are trembling, there’s only one thing to do: smile at your brazen confidence and keep on pushing! 🙂

This week Paulie put together a slick exercise circuit for you that includes 5 basic movements. As you execute this circuit, really focus on dialing in proper form. Don’t rush. Control your breathing as Paulie instructs in the video, and—for the love of raspberries in June—squeeze your beautiful glutes! If you perform every rep to perfection, you’ll feel muscles firing in all kinds of unexpected places.

Rock it out, and ENJOY! Here’s the lineup:

  1. Push-ups (push)
  2. Body weight squat (squat)
  3. High knee twist (rotate)
  4. Towel bent row (pull)
  5. Tall kneeling hip hinge (hinge)

Perform each exercise for 30 seconds, resting only as needed between exercises. Rest 30-60 seconds between circuits. Complete 3-5 rounds. Bam.
