Thanks for checking out this full body strength training workout. In 30 minutes we will perform exercises for the entire body using dumbbells. I'm using 8 pounds in this workout, but please start with lighter weights if this is your first time working out with me! My workouts are perfect for seniors and beginners because we go at a nice pace and really focus on form.
This video uses compound or combination exercises for better performance in your everyday activities. If you feel it is too much to do these moves at once then please start slow and just do one move (just arms and not legs). As always do not perform any exercise that you are uncomfortable with or that causes you pain. If you have a question regarding your ability, it is best to check with your doctor.
This video focuses on building strength by using dumbbells. Having better strength allows you to do more in life and makes you feel better, AND avoids injury! Stronger muscles burn more calories and helps reduce bone loss!
After a warm up we will perform about 2/3rds of the exercises in a standing position. We will then move to the floor/mat for some chest, tricep and abdominal work. We will finish with some stretches. Please make sure you finish the workout with the stretches. Stretching and working on flexibility is just as important for the muscles as strengthening movements, and it helps reduce soreness.
Thank you for working out with me.
