Full Body Home Workout

Today I wanted to share with you a short full body home workout which I divided into three parts:

  1. legs and arms (with hand weights) – first triset
  2. ABS and obliques – second triset
  3. cardio legs and ABS

(*this article contains affiliate links. Please read my Disclosure page for details)

What is a “TRISET”?

Triset or tri-set means simply performing three different exercises one after another with no break in between.  It allows you to do more in a shorted period of time and also speeds up your metabolism and increases endurance and strength, esp. when you do weight lifting. Exercises should be performed fast and usually we focus on only one muscle group (that’s what I found out from various Internet sources). My suggestion is a bit different in the first part where in the first set I focus on legs and arms at the same time (which makes it more demanding).


1st TRISET – LEGS AND ARMS (with hand weights):

  • CURTSY LUNGES WITH LATERAL RISES (15 reps)
  • LUNGES WITH FRONT RISES (15 reps)
  • SQUATS WITH SHOULDER PRESS (15 reps)

MODIFICATION: you can do these exercises with no weights, or you can do these WITH weights but only hold them down in your hands during all three exercises (so no lifting).

 

Do all three exercises one after another, with no breaks in between. Adjust the speed to your own possibilities, but try to do them fast. After completing the whole triset, take a short break. Do the whole triset 3 times.


TIP: If you don’t have any light weights at home, you can use two small bottles of water or you can get small dumbbells quite cheap online. Ebay has a great selection – THESE ONES here are on my bucket list!


2nd TRISET – ABS AND OBLIQUES:

  • SEATED OBLIQUE TWISTS WITH WEIGHTS (15 reps)
  • BICYCLE CRUNCHES (15 reps)
  • SIDE PLANK CRUNCHES (15 reps each side)


Do this set exactly the same way as the first triset. Take a short break after completing the whole set and then repeat (3 times).

I finished the whole workout with some cardio leg and ABS exercises in the end (links to youtube to show you how to do these exercises):

Do one after another. Break. Repeat everything 3 times.

I can tell you now, the first triset was the most demanding to me. It seems so easy but when you add those hand weights you bring that whole difficulty to the next level.

    I really like that you can in fact get in a great full body workout at home. I’m not the type of person that wants to own a gym membership so this is perfect for me.

    That 1st triset is no joke, especially those curtsy lunges with lateral rises! My balance is pretty much non-existent, so I always feel like I’m tipping sideways when I do those. Thanks for sharing, I’ll be testing out this workout at the gym tomorrow morning!

      It should not be too demanding if you adjust weights to your own possibilities, however to be honest the worst part for me, surprisingly, was the squats with shoulder press. You just have to try it to find out how difficult it is for you 🙂 All the best xxx

    I’ve been looking for workouts I can do at home and also when I’m traveling and I’m so glad I found your site. There are so many exercises one can do that don’t require a lot of special equipment and you showcased them here. Oh my gosh though, mountain climbers are one of the hardest for me! x

    Girl, those SIDE PLANK CRUNCHES!!! Ugh, that move along with the mountain climbers get me every time! 😉 But seriously, thank you for a quick resource like this. I have to fit my workouts into nooks and crannies during the day, and trisets like this are the perfect quick fix!

      Ahhh yes! I remember when I did side plank crunches for the first time in my life 😮 That was SOME experience! Now they seem a “little bit” easier 😉 And yes, trisets are great for a quick workout, even in the morning to get your blood flow a little bit faster 😉 Glad you’ve found it interesting xxx
