While many of the exercises target specific muscles in the body, there are some that workout the entire body. Here are some of those full body workouts:
You need to take a loaded or unloaded barbell and roll it against your shins. You should then bend at your hips and knees and then grab the barbell bar.
For ideal results you should ensure that your hands are wider than shoulder-width. While maintaining a small arc in your lower back, you should pull back your torso then thrust your hips forward. You should then stand up with the barbell. You should maintain in this position for 30 seconds and then lower the bar to the floor.
You should lie facing up with your knees and feet lying flat on the floor. At this position you should hold a 10-15 pound dumbbell in each of your hands and extend your arms upwards. While keeping your wrists aligned with your shoulders and your palms facing up, you should push into your heels and lift your glutes.
You should hold in this position until you feel tension building then slowly lower your hips. At the same time you should open your arms wide.
You should get into the plank position and place your hands below your shoulders. You should then lower your chest towards the floor while at the same time keeping your upper arms parallel to your sides.
You should also ensure that your elbows are pointing straight back. You should hold in this position for at least 30 seconds and then push back up to the starting position.
Bulgarian Split Squat
You should start the move by standing about 3 feet in front of a bench with the top of your right foot on the bench. You should then hold a 10-15 pound dumbbell in each of your hands and slowly bend your leg until you get into a lunge.
Keeping your left heel on the ground, you should slightly lean forward and raise your right arm to your side until the elbow is in line with the right shoulder. You should hold in this position for about 30 seconds and then slowly lower your arm and press your leg back up to the starting position. For ideal results you should do 12-15 reps of this exercise.
You should start the move by sitting on an exercise bench. You should then hold a barbell and then raise it up to shoulder height. You should hold in this position for some time and when you feel tension building you should raise the barbell further until your arms are fully extended.
You should then hold in this position for a second and then bring it down in front of your shoulders.
These are some of the moves that will exercise your entire body. For you to get results you should do at least 10 reps in each move. It’s also recommended that you increase your weight load as you get fit.

I love these full body workouts, especially the Glute Bridge and the Bulgarian Split Squats. I plan to add a few pounds to the dumbbell every few days. Thanks for the great workouts!
Very helpful information. I have been struggling recently trying to find some easy workouts to evenly distribute on my body. This is exactly what I needed.
Thanks for these great ideas for full body exercises! Sometimes I am so busy in the day, getting to the gym is near impossible. I love that you can do these anywhere and they work out multiple muscle groups, which is super efficient.
I am so glad I found this article! I have been trying to exercise more at home but I haven’t felt like I have gotten a full body workout. I look forward to doing these in the comfort of my own room!Thank you for the information!
I’ve always been a fan of full body exercises. They help ensure you don’t disproportionally build muscle. They also have the added benefit of making you stronger overall, rather just in specific ways.
Glad to see squats and deadlifts. They’re without a doubt, among some of the best exercises you can do.
