A Full-Body Strength Workout That Has Just 5 Moves

If you want to start lifting heavier weights, a full-body strength workout is a must to add to your routine. And you don’t need to go overboard on the number of exercises to get it done.

When you’re looking to get stronger, the exercises you choose and how you program your workout become particularly important, ACE-certified personal trainer Sivan Fagan, C.P.T., owner of Strong with Sivan, tells SELF. As for the exercises that’ll help you get stronger, the best bang for your workout buck is going to be big, basic compound movements—think squats and rows rather than leg extensions or bicep curls. Because these exercises activate large muscle groups, you’re also going to be able to load them up with more weight than you would for moves that isolate smaller muscles.

Then comes how you program your workout. If your goal is to build full-body strength, straight sets—where you complete one set, rest, then go back to the same exercise for one or more work-rest periods—are going to be a better way to accomplish that than circuits, where you go from one exercise to the other without resting, says Fagan. Circuits keep your heart rate up (and add a cardiovascular boost), but they don’t give you the recovery you need to lift heavy weights set after set.

Which brings us to our next point—a really important one. When you’re strength-training with the specific goal of getting stronger (rather than for general fitness, or to build muscle or endurance), you need to rest longer than you may think, says Fagan. That’s why in the full-body workout she created below, you’ll be resting a full two to three minutes after each set.

“You should rest enough so your heart rate goes back to baseline,” Fagan says. “The goal is for you to feel like you are very close to almost full recovery here, in order to feel like you can repeat the same amount of reps at the same amount of weight for three or four rounds.”
