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.

Log this workout in your MyFitnessPal app as “CIRCUIT TRAINING, GENERAL”
