Fall Back into Fitness Day 1: Total-Body Strength Training

Welcome to the first day of our Fall Back into Fitness Event! Today’s workout video is all about total-body strength training.

What you’ll need:

  1. Dumbbells
  • A heavier set for larger muscle groups (legs, chest and back)
  • A lighter set for the arms, shoulders and upper back
  1. Sturdy chair
  • The chair will help target your major muscle groups with exercises like squat sits, chest presses, bent-over rows, overhead presses, biceps curls, lunges, triceps extensions, planks and standing cross crunches.

Instead of using a specific rep count, we’ll focus on time under tension during the exercises, so feel free to adjust the amount of repetitions based on your current fitness level. The goal is to hit muscular fatigue while still using proper form and alignment during each rep.

Prefer to do your own thing? Awesome! Schedule 20–60 minutes of your favorite strength-training workout that targets the whole body. Be sure to hit every major muscle group and aim to work to muscular fatigue. Check in with us here or on social media once you’re done.

    I did the workouts last week, would love to repeat this week, and they are gone. Why? Where?

  • Blessed Being

    This was mostly very good. I went at my own pace as she recommended & modified as needed. I floundered with the tricep dips though–way too much strain on elbows–couldn’t figure out what else to do. Also stunned that after all that ST there was barely any stretching at all! Not even a reminder to stretch muscles on your own–that seems like a glaring oversight to me.
