Weekend Workout – Why the One-Legged Man is Strong as Hell

Have you ever tried to balance on one leg for 60 seconds? If not, go ahead and try it now, I’ll wait……..

Not that easy right? Single leg exercises are great for enhancing stability and allowing you to build strength independently between legs, which is why the weekend workout below is full of them .

Head to the Tampa Strength YouTube channel (link) if you need further instruction on several of the exercises listed below. I recommend performing the workout in interval format (45 sec work/15 sec rest) for 16-24 minutes. Don’t forget to warmup and modify the workout to match your fitness level.

Weekend Workout – My Love-Hate Exercise Relationship

If I had to pick which exercise I hate performing the most, it would have to be the lunge. My body, and mind, hate seeing it in my workout programming, but I love the benefits this compound exercise can provide. I decided that this edition of the weekend workout should be dedicated to the exercise I love to hate & works multiple muscle groups simultaneously.

Weekend Workout – If one is good, two has to be better

This weekend workout is packed with “2-4-1” exercises. That means you get the benefit of 8 exercises instead of 4. As you can see many of these exercises are compound exercises, which means they are multi-joint movements that require the use of various muscle groups.

Between the squat, push-up and lunge, you’ll be working essentially every muscle group in your body with this workout. I recommend performing 10 reps of exercise followed by at least 30 seconds of rest for three to five circuits. Don’t forget to warmup and modify the workout to match your fitness level.

Weekend Workout – Push It, Push It Real Good

Compound exercises are multi-joint movements that require the use of various muscle groups. That means performing a workout filled with compound exercises will give you more “bang for your buck” which is why I decided to fill this weekend workout with one of the best compound exercises around: the push-up.

This bodyweight workout includes a variety of push-up variations that will strengthen numerous muscle groups in your body.  I recommend performing 10 reps of each push-up variation followed by at least 30 seconds of rest for three to five circuits. Don’t forget to warmup and modify the workout to match your fitness level.
