Thank you for joining me for this total body strength workout. All exercises are performed on the mat in varying positions. I will walk you through exercises at an achievable pace using a set of light dumbbells. This workout is appropriate for seniors and beginners.
I’m using a a 4 pound set of hand weights for this workout. Always start lighter if you are unsure or just starting working out. It’s more important to have correct form and prevent injuries. Just use what you have, even water bottles and soups cans are great to use.
I'm also using a pair of ankle weights that are 2 pounds each. They are totally optional, you will still get a great workout without them.
You may also want a pillow to support your hips and head. If sitting cross legged is uncomfortable for you, you can extent your legs out in front or even do the first section sitting in a chair.
Want more or want to gain strength faster? I suggest you do the workout two times through to really feel those muscles working!
Make sure you stay for stretching at the end of the workout. The final 5 minutes are stretching exercises that will reduce soreness, work on flexibility and make you feel great!
I hope you enjoy this strength building workout! As always, thanks for working out with me and let me know how you liked it in the comments. 👍🏻
