Try these 3 moves to strengthen your whole body.
I remember when I met with my very first personal trainer, Leslie. She helped me learn how to do strength training workouts for the first time.
Once I started working out with Leslie on a regular basis, I fell in love with this new way of exercising. Prior to meeting Leslie, I used to be a cardio-queen. I was ready for a change.
I had been a runner for years prior. All I knew were workouts that took an hour or more.
Although I loved running, I was getting injured quite a bit. In addition, workouts seemed to take forever. I wasn’t even getting the physique changes I was looking for either.
Meeting with Leslie was a life-changing experience. She began to teach me a more efficient way to workout.
ONCE I BEGAN STRENGTH TRAINING CONSISTENTLY, I STARTED TO FIRM UP MY BODY IN WAYS I’VE NEVER SEEN BEFORE. I ALSO STARTED TO GET STRONGER (which I loved!).
But even though I began to love strength training, I also found it a bit confusing sometimes.
There are so many strength training exercises available to us. How do we know which ones are best to reach our goals? And how can we workout most efficiently so we don’t have to spend hours in the gym?
Years after working with Leslie, I went back to school and became a personal trainer myself. Soon I learned which strength training exercises are most efficient and effective.
In addition, I learned that what I was doing in the gym could also be replicated at home. This meant I didn’t need expensive equipment or a pricey gym membership.
With that in mind, today I wanted to teach YOU three super efficient exercises you can do at home to strengthen your whole body.
These moves require an inexpensive pair of dumbbells (I get mine at Target or Walmart). You may even use soup cans or something else in place of the dumbbells.
