To get a total body workout you need to stop using machines, stop doing exercises that isolate one muscle from another and begin doing compound exercises which work more than one muscle group at the same time. The best way to do this that I have found is by using a kettlebell.
This is a device which looks like a cannonball with a handle and, because of its design it is ideal for swinging which you can’t do with a barbell or dumbbell. Because of this there is an added cardiovascular element to kettlebell lifting as opposed to lifting weights otherwise. After just a few short swings with a kettlebell you will be huffing and puffing and burning up to 20 calories a minute.
Kettlebells are designed to develop strength and endurance rather than maximum strength and I have heard of people running marathons after doing nothing but working out with kettlebells. Here is the workout that I have developed and am currently doing.
Do these exercises in a circuit moving from one to another with a brief rest in between.
Day 1: Chin ups, push ups, dips, high pulls, bent over rows, swing snatch, clean and press, renegade rows.
Day 2: squats, halos, dead lift, lunges, one handed swing, figure 8s.
Day 3: Pull ups, renegade rows, push ups, dips, bottoms up military press, swing snatch, cross over clean and press.
Day 4: squats, halos, dead lift, lunges, one handed swing, figure 8s.
Day 5: Pull ups, renegade rows, push ups, dips, bottoms up military press, swing snatch, cross over clean and press.
