5 Day Total Body Toning Workout

5 Day Total Body Toning Workout

Alright, it’s a new year and that means it’s time for a new you! I’ve created a total body toning workout to get you looking lean and fit in just a few months. If you want to be ready for the beach this summer, or just want to achieve your New Year’s resolution in half the time, this is the workout for you.

Whatever you’re doing right now, you’ve got to step it up a notch (or two) to start seeing real results. As a trainer and fitness coach, I’ve learned that it all comes down to motivation, commitment, and a solid workout routine.

Maximizing Your Efforts

To maximize your gains and get the best toning results possible, you need a workout plan that’s focused and intense.

A focused workout means performing exercises that target specific muscle groups, rather than taking a total body approach a few days a week. This focused approach also allows you to hit the gym 5 or even 6 days a week, because one group of muscles can rest and recover while you work on another group.

And this approach works whether your goal is to get lean or bulk up. Either way you want it, you’ll get better results by getting more focused. This 5 day workout will help you do just that.

As for intensity, you definitely need to push yourself, but spending more time at the gym is the first step. This toning workout gets you to the gym 5 days a week, and it’s going to make you work for a good 45 minutes each day.

The Workout

This is a 5 day workout that involves focused exercises to help you get more toned and fit. If your goal is to get fit and lean (and burn fat), I want you aiming for 10-12 reps per set. If your goal is to bulk up and build size (while still increasing your metabolism), then aim for something closer to 6-8 reps per set.

Here’s the plan…

Day 1 – Back

  • 15 minutes of moderate cardio (equipment of your choice)
  • 3 sets of dumbbell row on bench (each side) (view exercise)
  • 3 sets of standing barbell row (view exercise)
  • 3 sets of lat pulldown (view exercise)
  • 3 sets of back extension on Roman chair (view exercise)
  • 3 sets of single arm lat pulls with cable (each side) (view exercise)
  • 3 sets of bent over dumbbell lateral raises (view exercise)

Day 2 – Chest & Shoulders

Day 3 – Legs

Day 4 – Biceps & Triceps

Day 5 – Abs & Core

Make sure you follow up each workout with at least 5 minutes of stretching. This will help improve recovery, prevent injury, and speed up results.

I’m also big on a post-workout recovery shake with a healthy protein powder like Gaspari Nutrition Myofusion or Optimum 100% Natural Whey. This will help ensure that your muscles get the fuel they need. And remember, more muscle mass means a higher metabolism, so you’re going to see some serious fat burning results from this workout as well!
