I love to workout with weights! One thing I have learned from all my working out with Jillian (remember we are best friends, she just doesn’t know it) is that compound movements are much more effective than just isolating one muscle group. This series of dumbbell exercises will give you several effective compound movements. I like to use 8lb weights, but 3lbs or 5 lbs is great as well! You can always push the up button by increasing the weight.
Start with one set of each move. As you get stronger,try to do the a circuit three or four times. After six weeks you can expect to see improvements in strength, muscle tone, and endurance. You will be shocked at just how strong you are! As always…No excuses! Just do it!
Remember to keep good proper form and warm up and stretch before and after your workout!
