The PERFECT Total Body Workout (Sets and Reps Included)

Workout
Constructing a single perfect total body workout is a challenge when you consider all of the muscle groups that you will need to hit in that workout. That said, I’m going to deliver exactly that in this video. If you want to try just a single total body workout routine if you are new to this type of training, then you will want to do the A workout. If instead, you want to adopt a more rigorous total body split workout routine, then you will want to pair this up with the B workout and perform them in alternating fashion on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

First, it helps to discuss the benefits of total body workouts. This type of workout split allows you to train the bigger muscles of the body utilizing the more compound exercises. These are the exercises that lend themselves to increased strength at a faster pace and also help to coordinate multiple muscle groups into one action, making them more athletically based and functional.

Given the fact that science will support the fact that stimulation and re-stimulation of a muscle every 48 hours produces the most amount of muscle growth with the least amount of wasted time, you will find that total body workouts take advantage of this. By allowing you to train your entire body every other day you are getting more frequent stimuli for protein synthesis, more accrued volume and more sessions in over a given period of time.

In this total body split, we focus not just on picking the compound exercises but rather on accomplishing specific movements. We want to perform a lunge, hinge and squat for the lower body; a push and pull for the upper body; and a corrective and carry to round out our workouts. The combination of these 7 components will not only hit all of the major functions of human performance but will lend themselves to picking the right exercises for getting the job done.

That said, let’s start breaking down the workouts.

Here is how to construct the perfect total body workout A:

1. 3D Lunge Warmup – 2-3 x 7 reps each direction
2. Barbell Squats – 3 x 5
3. Barbell Hip Thrusts – 3-4 x 10-12
4. Barbell Bench Press – 3 x 5
5. Weighted Chin Ups – 3 x 6-10 to failure
6. DB Farmer’s Carries – 3-4 x 50 steps with half bodyweight
7. Face Pulls – 2 x 12 (using 12 sets of 1 mentality)

Here is how to construct the perfect total body workout B:

1. 3D Lunge Warmup – 2-3 x 7 reps each direction
2. Deadlifts – 3 x 5
3. Barbell Squats or Barbell Reverse Lunges – 3-4 x 10
4. Barbell OHP – 3 x 5
5. Barbell Rows – 3 x 10-12
6. DB Overhead Farmer’s Carries – 3-4 x 50 steps with one quarter bodyweight
7. Face Pulls or other corrective – 2 x 12 (using 12 sets of 1 mentality)

If you are doing this workout just to try it out, then I would suggest you choose the workout A variation. That said, if you opt to do a more comprehensive total body split workout routine then you will want to either incorporate workouts A and B into a twice a week plan or, even better, alternating A and B on M, W and F each week.

Other total body splits exist as well. These include doing a complete push (including both upper and lower body) and pull that simply gets alternated six days a week. There is also the most comprehensive and effective of all and that is the TOTAL BEAXST program that I created and provide on our website at http://athleanx.com. This plan is designed to not just build as much muscle as possible in 90 days but also help to build your athleticism and prevent unwanted injury that occurs often with other total body workouts.
