HIIT the New Year Hard: Workout 4: Full Body Standing Dumbbell Workout
Please follow and like us:
Today’s workout is a full body routine that utilizes dumbbells. I alternated between 12 and 20 lb dumbbells. You want to select an appropriate weight that you can use to increase the challenge, while also maintaining appropriate form for each exercise.
Anytime you use weights you want to make sure you are completing the exercise in the full range of motion, and with appropriate form. Control the movement of the weight throughout the exercise, going both up and down. Using weights can help you achieve your weight loss goal, and sculpt lean muscle. Lean Muscle=Higher Metabolism.
I went through this workout once, and paired it with a 4.25 mile run outside. We are having unseasonably warm weather, so I took advantage of it and ran in the sunshine.
