Weighted Weekday Workout

Hi Everyone!

Tonight's workout is a full body workout. I used two 20 lb dumbbells, but all of the exercises can also be performed with body weight, or the weight of your choice. It is important to work at your own level. Select a weight that is challenging for you, but allows you to maintain proper form throughout each exercise. 

Jesse and I followed this workout with a 3.5 mile run. We took it at a slower pace than normal, because we wanted it to be a recovery run. Tomorrow I am planning a higher intensity workout day and Jesse is doing another trail run. 

If you haven't tried yesterday's yoga workout yet you can find it here: Yoga Flow Workout: Lean Stretch Fat Burn

See you tomorrow!

This workout can be repeated 1-3X.

  1. This is awesome. I love a challenge and this definitely did the job. I lift a lot and this is a great cross training workout. Thanks!

  2. Love the cat, too!

  3. Its good to know that there are lots of fitness gyms here in LA that can support us. We must find the perfect place to start our campaign towards our own fitness. Make sure that when we start that, we will continuously do this to have a good and healthy fit body.

  5. Melissa, you rotate your body a bit when doing the rowing part in Man Maker- is this the correct way?
