This 5-Move Full Body Workout From Kelsey Wells Will Have All Your Muscles Burning
Here's how it works: It's a 14-minute workout that starts with an activation set that includes performing two exercises, a plank and leg lift, and high knees, back to back for four minutes. Following that, you'll complete the designated number of reps for each of the remaining exercises as many times as possible, while maintaining good technique, within the allocated time.
After completing the activation exercises, you can increase the intensity of your workout by completing three laps of all exercises in a circuit format. Simply perform as many reps as possible for each exercise within the 40-second period before taking a 20-second rest and moving onto the next exercise.
This interval-style training is an effective way to burn a large amount of energy in a short period of time, helping to maximise your workout efficiency. Combining upper body, lower body and core exercises is also a great way to engage multiple muscle groups and test your aerobic fitness.
Before starting any workout, Kelsey recommends completing a series of dynamic stretches — leg swings, arm circles and torso twists, to help to increase your range of motion as well as minimise the risk of injury. Post-workout, you should always allow the body to cool down. Try 3-5 minutes of walking to help to slowly lower your heart rate and cool down the body. Kelsey also recommends completing a series of static stretches to help provide relief from any potential cramping and reduce future muscle soreness.
