Exercise 1: BARBELL FRONT SQUAT TO PUSH PRESS

a-workout-your-whole-bodll-be-thankful-for-composites1 Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, and hold a barbell with an overhand grip in front of your shoulders with your elbows forward and your upper arms parallel to the floor (A). Bend your knees, extend your hips back, and lower your hips towards the floor until the tops of your thighs are parallel to the ground (B). Keeping your back straight, drive into your heels, and return to standing, driving the barbell directly over your shoulders (C). Lower the bar back to its starting position at the front of your shoulders. That’s one rep. Do 10 reps. [bctt tweet="A Workout Your Whole Body Will Be Thankful For"]

Exercise 2: CHINUP

Cross your ankles, and bring your feet toward your butt. Pulling from your back muscles, lead with your chest as you pull upward. Lift up until the bar is near your collarbone and your chin is over the bar (B). Slowly lower yourself back down until your arms are fully straightened. That’s one rep. Complete as many as you can.

Exercise 3: SPRINTS

Bend your knees, reach your hips back, grasp the bar, and drive into your heels (A). Keeping your chest up, back flat, and your arms straight, stand all the way up with the bar against your upper thighs (B). Bend your knees, reach your hips back, and return to the starting position. That’s one rep. Do 15 reps.

Exercise 5: BARBELL LUNGE

Take a very large step forward with your left leg, and lower your hips straight down while keeping your chest up. Lower until your left thigh is parallel to the ground. Press upward, and drive into your left heel to return to the starting position. That’s one rep. Do 10 on each side. What do you think? Is this a routine you can add to your repertoire?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
