NOTHING shapes your body like STRENGTH TRAINING, and we are getting it ALL done today! This total body workout will challenge you and change you with complex exercises that target your arms, shoulders, back, chest, abs, butt and legs. And all the muscles in between. 😅
The FAST FACTS: Level FIVE | ALL standing, HEAVY lifting | VARIOUS weights of dumbbells | BURNS 200 – 250 calories | INCLUDES warm up + cool down
This one’s for my girls. Especially my friends who are a little reluctant to train with free weights because they don’t want to get bulky or they think it will be boring.
Have I got a treat for you!
Not only will you not get bigger from this workout, it can actually help you get smaller (if that’s your goal)! Weight training is great for weight loss because muscle tissue burns more calories every minute of every day, so the more muscle you have, the more you’re burning.
Strength work is also great for ladies (like me!) of a “certain age” who are concerned about muscle or bone loss. Picking up heavy things and putting them back down is proven to increase bone density as well as maintain or even improve muscle tone as we navigate midlife and beyond.
And my fellow cardio bunnies? You’re going to be surprised at how high your heart rate gets with this workout! Also – for this video in particular – there’s never a dull moment, between my stream of consciousness rambling, the visits from my animals and the very exciting thunderstorm we had while I was filming!
So. Are you ready? Awesome! Grab alllllll the dumbbells (and a sweat towel!) and let’s GO.
Check out the list of exercises below, then follow along with me in real time with the full length video.
