Lean Fitness Workout

This workout has three different options, either A, B, or C. Each workout is geared slightly differently with a unique focus. You can do them in any order such as A-B-C-A-B-C, or A-B-B-C-A-A-C. It is really up to you and it is encouraged to keep up a lot of variety to confuse your body so it doesn’t know what to expect. The only rule is to rest at least one day between workouts.

Workout A
