The Exercise

Signature Moves - Full-body Press

Get a lot done, in a little time with this full body exercise.
 
Time is our most valuable commodity. Why just work the upper part of your body, when, with the same amount of time and effort, you can include your lower body as well? Whatever your fitness level, it’s my mission to make sure you get the most out of your time on the trail. This exercise targets your whole body, quickly and effectively.

The Lateral Step-up

This easy exercise will get your heart pumping, while toning your legs, glutes, and obliques.

Signature Moves - Full-body Triceps Dip

Turn the basic triceps dip into a total body toner.
 
This is the “Tri-it-you’ll-like it-Dip!” Why just work your triceps when you can take the same amount of time to tone your entire body? I created this exercise out of desperation. I was bored with the basic dip, because it just didn’t seem to be doing enough anymore. So I found a way to bring the full body into play, working abs, hamstrings, and glutes. All you need is a bench, curb, step, concrete block, low sea wall, log, boulder--or even the incline of a hill off a wooded trail.

Equipment Needed
The only thing you need to complete this workout is a bench, block or sturdy stump. That’s it! This total body session targets all of your major muscle groups. It will also get your heart pumping. You’ll walk away from this workout fully oxygenated, with a rosy glow. 
 

  • Note:  Make sure that your bench or block is sturdy and not too high.
