Description

Cassiopeia III is a full-body workout. It trains all your large muscle groups.

The workout is based on the classic muscle-building system that relies on repetitions and your previous training experience. Depending which muscles are being targeted, you will do between 10 and 15 reps of each exercise.

Complete all exercises one after the other. Start with 10 pistols (5 per leg) and then 15 single leg glute bridges on each side, and so on. If you need a short break between the different exercises, take it. After each round (6 exercises) take a break of up to 60 seconds. Repeat the circuit 5 times. Always make sure that your exercise is clean and controlled and keep your body under tension.

If the Diamond Push-Ups are too easy for you, you can do Clapping Push-Ups or One Hand Push-Ups instead.

Warm up well before you start! Have fun with our workout.
