Let’s have an amazing start to the week! This 30 Minute Home Workout is fantastic. I use a dumbbell and chair during this workout. This full body workout is a great sculpting routine and great for fat burning while building lean muscle. More importantly, the compound exercises we are using today will really help improve your fitness, athleticism and muscular balance.
You will find the full length workout video below, as well as the photo tutorial so you know what to expect for each exercise.
For this routine all you need is a dumbbell and a sturdy chair. If you don’t have a dumbbell don’t worry! You can do all of the exercises with body weight, or grab something from around the house to add a little bit of resistance to the routine. Adding some resistance will increase the workout intensity and help you see results more quickly, but if you’ve been following me for a while you already know I do primarily body weight workouts. So you can definitely get in great workouts without adding in extra resistance.
You can find dumbbells on Amazon if you want to add some equipment to your workout routine.
Remember to challenge yourself. Take breaks as needed, but push yourself and get right back into the workout when you can. Learning to listen to your body and recognize when you can keep pushing and when you need a break is an important life skill.
It’s been a long time since I went through this workout. I’m really looking forward to doing it today. I remember filming it, and that I really liked the challenge of this routine.
I hope you enjoy today’s workout. Let me know what you think and if you have a favorite exercise. Which one challenged you the most?
I will see you soon with a new workout! I’m planning a great lower body focused routine, so be sure to check back!
