Full Body Strength Training Workout for Seniors & Beginners // All Standing Bodyweight & Dumbbells

34  comments

This workout video includes 10 strength building exercises that we will first complete using just our bodyweight. The second time through we will use a light set of handweights. I'm using 4 pounds in this workout. After a short warm up we will get to work on our strength training. These exercises are performed using a timer. Don't feel like you have to keep up with me, go at a pace that you are comfortable with. We will do each exercise for 45 seconds, then rest for 15 seconds while I demonstrate the next move.
We will finish the workout with some feel-good stretches.
Many of these exercises are compound movements, using both the upper body and lower body at the same time. You will defiantly get some cardio benefits with this workout as well!
I hope you enjoyed this workout! Please let me know what you think in the comments. I love hearing from my viewers!

  • I always look forward to your latest video, Lauren. I liked this because I can imagine re visiting it over time with progressively heavier weights – and that there was a big portion of it that included strength training. I have to say though – almost all your videos include both cardio and strength in the best non boring way. I also appreciate the squats and variations on squats included because i feel like they are so helpful to my general fitness and knee strength. I know not everyone one likes them .

    • Yes! right on Laurel! I love your attitude and you’re correct this video is a great one to revisit and check progress πŸ™‚

  • Great new video. The courtsies were a bit challenging πŸ˜…. I have learned to embrace and look forward to the challenging parts of the routines as I enjoy feeling myself get stronger. When I first did the courtsies in another routine they were very difficult on my left leg which has always been weaker than my right leg. Now I can do the courtsies on my left leg quite well. Keep up the great work with producing your videos!

    • Yay! Nice job John, it’s great to hear about your progress πŸ™‚ You keep up the great work as well !!!

  • Great class Lauren especially good to work off the Easter chocolate 🍫!!! See you next time πŸ™‹

  • I’ve been doing your workouts since last week after being sick for 3 months and today I found I was already able to use low weights the entire time during this work out. I really like your workouts because I can do them at a lower or higher impact depending on how I’m feeling that day. Thank you!

  • I liked the format! Body weight only followed by hand weights. A great addition to your strength training workouts ❀

  • Thank you for another great workout. Do you think it’s still beneficial if I do the first part of the video without weights one day and the next day complete the video using weights? ThanksπŸ’š

    • Yes, absolutely Cindy. Just make sure that you are warmed up before you do it with the weights! You’re right, with the sections separated they make nice little 10 min workouts πŸ™‚

  • Good morning Lauren, loved this workout! Thank you and as always appreciate your cues ! At 74 my tummy has a mind of it’s own! Thank you so much for helping us stay strong and healthy! πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™ Many blessings! 🀍🀍🀍

  • This was a great workout…yet again! Feel amazing after this. Really liked this format and hope for more like this.

  • This was great! Worth doing again and again and incrementally using heavier weights as one is able…Thanks Lauren!
