Last Call 2012 Workout

by Courtney on December 31, 2012

Geez…I feel like workouts are becoming few and far between around here these days! If you’re one of the readers who comes to STSL solely for the workouts well, then, I’ve been failing you miserably lately. Sorry about that.

How about I make it up to you all though, with one last workout to try out for 2012? It’s a fun one, I promise!

Last Call 2012 Workout

This is actually a workout that I’ve given to a few of my online training clients, but it was one of my favorites so I thought I’d go ahead and share it with all of you today, as this month’s GNC workout.

The workout is made up of supersets – one exercise is an active exercise, while the other is a static (hold) exercise, thus giving you even more of that muscle burn we all know and love.

I know that I usually try to give you all some visuals to go along with the exercises, but I didn’t get a chance today. Most of the exercises should be pretty self-explanatory, but there were a few that I thought could be questionable, so here’s a few links to check those out.

If anyone decides to give it a shot, let me know! Like I said, it’s one of my favorites. :)

HAPPY NEW YEAR’S EEEEEEVE, everyone! Be safe out there!!

Really slow movement exercises are so great sometimes! It’s a nice change up from the explosive stuff because you get to focus on every tiny muscle fiber. :)

Oh yay, supersets are my favorite! I have a hard time strength training on my own since I find it boring, but supersets make it go by about a billion times faster.

Ah! I didn’t think it’d be this tough! Wow, I was definitely feeling the burn even in the first superset. This was so much fun! Thanks for sharing! Now I’m ready for that New Year’s Eve party!

You are more than excused for not having workouts to share! You have something taking all of your extra energy! So worth it :-)
