People are often conditioned and brainwashed into thinking that more is better. This simply isn't true. I've spoken before about the importance of quality over quantity. Hardly a new concept, but there are many who believe in quantity over quality, particularly in fitness. I've seen people in the past proud of the fact that they spend three hours in the gym. They'll typically start with some cardio like the treadmill, bike, or elliptical. Then they'll run through all the machines and maybe do a few dumbbell exercises. All the while, talking to everyone in prolonged conversations. No wonder it takes three hours!
Now onto the Triangle Of Terror! This is radically different from the routine mentioned above. In this workout, you only do three exercises. That's it! They'll be done in a triset so there's no rest between the exercises. After each triset there is a brief rest, and you will do between 5 and 7 trisets depending on your fitness level. The key here is to pick the right exercises that will train the entire body. Basically, you're looking at an upper body exercise, a lower body exercise, and a core exercise. It' doesn't get simpler than that! Here are some examples.
Floor To Overhead Dumbbell Press
Stir The Pot
Dumbbell Bentover Row
Side To Side Squats
The reps can vary, but I would say to keep them at 10 or higher. But remember, this workout may be simple. But it definitely is not easy!
