A 30-Minute, Calorie-Burning, Beginner Strength-Training Workout
Ready to get your strength training on but not completely sure where to begin? We totally get that, and we've got your back. If you're just starting to get into a workout routine, this 30-minute workout is a great place to start. You'll be working your arms, legs, and core in this strengthening workout created by RIPPED Fit founder Brian Ripka.
This workout does include some ploymetric exercises. If the impact is too much, feel free to modify or skip them. "Plyometrics are so efficient in burning calories, incinerating fat, and turning fat into lean muscle," Brian said. A lot of the movements are compound exercises, which means you'll be working multiple muscle groups at the same time, which will also help build muscle. Brian's advice: "Slow and controlled, one rep at a time."
- Complete all of the exercises in circuit one. Take a short rest if you need it, then repeat circuit one for a total of three rounds.
- After the third round of circuit one, take two to three minutes of rest.
- Begin circuit two, completing all the exercises. Take a short rest if you need it, then repeat circuit two for a total of three rounds.
Be sure to warm up before you get started, and don't forget to stretch after!
