The “Delirious” Workout Breakdown

This timed workout is structured to challenge your lower body through three key exercises, each focusing on different aspects of leg and core strength. Here’s what you’ll tackle in this session:

  • Squats: Begin your workout with squats, a fundamental exercise for targeting the quadriceps, hamstrings, and glutes. Squats also help to strengthen your core and increase lower body mobility.
  • Split Squats – 3 Ways: Move on to split squats performed in three variations to challenge your muscles from different angles, enhancing balance, coordination, and overall lower body strength. This could include front foot elevated, rear foot elevated, and side split squats.
  • Staggered RDL (Romanian Deadlift): Conclude with staggered Romanian deadlifts, focusing on one leg at a time to improve hamstring and glute strength while also engaging your lower back and core for stability.

Tips to Excel in the “Delirious” Workout

  • Stay Hydrated: Keep water on hand to stay hydrated, especially as this workout can be intense and you’ll be sweating a lot.
  • Pace Yourself: Given that this workout is timed, find a sustainable pace that allows you to perform each set with proper form while keeping the intensity high.
  • Focus on Form: Ensure that you maintain correct form throughout each exercise to maximize the benefits and prevent injuries. Proper alignment and technique are crucial, especially during complex movements like split squats and RDLs.
  • Cool Down Properly: After completing the workout, make sure to cool down with stretches that target the legs and lower back to aid recovery and increase flexibility.
