Total Body Strength Workout to Build Lean Muscle

workouts Jun 18, 2021

When it comes to building total body strength you want to focus on increasing your weight while decreasing your repetitions. The way we build strength is with heavier weight and lighter reps, where when we are trying to burn fat we switch to higher reps and lower weight. This workout is a Total Body Strength Focused workout routine using just a pair of dumbbells that will strengthen your legs, shoulders, back, and core. 


When choosing a weight, you will want to choose a weight that is slightly heavier than what you would normally use as the reps are lower in this workout intentionally to focus on strength building.


EMOM #1 Every 90 seconds for 5 rounds total perform: 




To clarify, you will start a timer and from :00-1:30 you will perform 5 Push Jerks+5 Front Squats. Whatever time is remaining in that 90 seconds after you have completed those reps is your rest time. When the timer hits the 90 second mark you will start again for round 2 from 1:30-3:00 and complete another set of 5 Push Jerks + 5 Front Squats and you have until the timer hits 3:00 to rest, will continue this for 5 total sets.
