Squats, I think is the best total-body workout. It works your lower body, core, and upper body. Squats are versatile. You can do bodyweight squats, single-leg squats, dumbbell squats, barbell squats, kettlebell squats. You name it, there's a squat for every occasion.
Today's workout was pretty simple. I finished it in 30 minutes:
1a) TRX inverted row (12 reps x 3 sets)
1b) TRX Pushups (12 reps x 3 sets)
2) TRX Bicep Curls (12 reps x 3 sets)
3) Squats (10kg each arm - 10 reps x 3 sets)
Workouts 1 & 2 were pretty challenging, but I was still pretty relaxed and didn't even sweat much. And now I know why the workout was designed that way. Because the squats are pretty brutal. Didn't sweat eh? Take that! And that! Hah! You ain't so tough now, are ya?
Well, if Squats could talk, that's what it would say to me.
The video above describes the squats that I did during my workout.
