Workout: Dynamic Effort Lower - Week 1 of 4

Fitness on a Budget Tip #1

Use what you have! Look around your backyard (or house). I'm sure you have rocks or tree stumps or blocks that you can use in place of a box. You might have an old tire that you can turn into a sled. Or what about a sand bag that you could throw, carry, or just use as a weight? Be creative! It's more fun that way :)

Workout: Dynamic Effort Lower Body

I just started a new cycle, which means new exercises.  Right now I am following DeFranco's Westside for Skinny Bastards program. I've been doing this program consistently for about a year and a half now and have done it on and off for several years. It's efficient and versatile, and one of my favorite templates. I lift 3 days a week (though it is a 4 day program) and each workout takes between 45 minutes to an hour. It's a program that I actually used with distance athletes when I used to coach. 

Happy lifting,


P.S. The workout program is free! You can check it out here if you are interested: Westside for Skinny Bastards Part 3.
