Strength Day

Warm-up: 3–5 min.

STRENGTH CIRCUIT:

Make sure to perform the workout at your maximum effort.  Don’t forget, proper form is important too – you don’t want to pick up the heaviest weight you can find. Weights that are moderately heavy will work best.

Important Tip: For best results, try to increase the difficulty of the workouts each time. You can accomplish this by decreasing your rest period, increasing the weight and doing more circuits.

Warm Up for 3-5 Minutes

Warming up is important and meant to increase your heart rate, so you can have a good workout. Some great warm-up exercise are jumping jacks, skipping rope and walking for 5 minutes.

GET STARTED:

Repeat each exercise back-to-back and rest where indicated. Remember to repeat the circuit 2 to 6 times and complete 12 to 15 reps depending on your fitness level. (Example: beginner – 2 times; intermediate – 3-4 times; advanced – 5-6 times.) Start with lighter weights or none at all and work your way up to weights when you feel comfortable.
