Full Body Workout for Beginners Video Collection

Updated on August 31, 2012

The two full body workouts detailed below can be used by beginners and veterans alike. With some simple modifications the easiest exercises can challenge the fittest of individuals.

The workouts should last around 20 mins, you will need to complete a warm up and cool down in addition.

Complete 12-15 reps of each exercise, there are 4 exercises in each workout, each of which will target a major muscle group, once you have completed one round rest for a minute or two and then start again for a total of 4 or 5 complete sets.

      Thanks for your comment - if you find you need help with your balance you can start with supported squats using either the back of a chair or a broom handle to steady you. See this video for some tips on supported squats: http://youtu.be/i3upkFYyLBU
