Hey hey Heat fam! It’s Coach Seth back with a WOW for you! We are going back to basics for a full body workout using only the barbell. When I’m in a rush this is my favorite efficient workout. No fancy equipment. Just some compound exercises and heavy ass weight 😈

Equipment: Barbell, Bumper Plates


For today’s warmup I want you to get all set up for the workout, then do 2 rounds of what I have planned for you. For the first round, go very light, less than half the weight you were planning on using. For the second round, go just a little heavier somewhere between 50%-75% of the weight.


Alllllllllrighty then. We gotcha moving. Starting to get a little sweaty glisten. Now let’s get after it. You will do today’s workout like big circuits. There will be two big circuits, you will 5 rounds of each circuit, with the designated reps next to each exercise. No time limit, but let’s keep it moving fast and get it done as quickly as possible with good form. You shouldn’t do the same weight on every exercise, use the changing of the weight as your rest. Also, any exercises that the barbell is too heavy for, you can use dumbbells as a substitute.

10 Standing Barbell Press

5 Back Squats
