You can buy just about anything these days, but a strong upper body paired with a set of toned legs requires continuous hard work. Crank out this Strong + Fit Series at the pool, gym, park, home - anywhere that you have access to something you can step up onto. All you need is a pair of weights. Follow through with this Workout Wednesday Series and your limbs will scream, "Look at me! I am STRONG and FIT!" SET 1 // Step Ups with Biceps 1. Hold weights at your sides and step up onto one leg 2. Draw opposite knee high while completing a bicep curl, lower down and repeat on the other side (remember to stand tall and keep your mid-section working - this will help with your balance)
SET 2 // Squat, Row, Lunge 1. Stand with feet under hips and weights at sides 2. Squat and hold, keep arms narrow and row up/down 3. Stay in the squat, extend one leg back to a lunge *keep the back leg straight* 4. Straighten the front leg, return to lunge *with back leg straight, return to squat, row and complete lunge sequence on alternate leg
SET 3 // Dead Lift, Burpee, PushUp 1. Stand with feet under hips and weights at sides 2. Lower down to ground (first half of dead lift) place weights on ground 3. Jump or step back to high plank 4. Push up 5. Jump or step feet back up to hands and stand tall (second half of dead lift)
Complete 10-20 of each exercise and go through the exercise sets 2-5 times. OR, set a timer for 1 minute intervals and complete 2-5 rounds. I love the smartphone app "Tabata Pro." Try it out for yourself & have a great workout!
