20-Minute FULL Body Workout with Weights
Looking for a quick workout that will give you an incredible bang for your buck? This full-body workout hits all your major muscle groups in just 20 minutes.
During this sweat sesh, you’ll be working all of your muscle groups with longer periods of work and shorter periods of rest (60 seconds on, 7 seconds off). This will give you a cardiovascular boost; you’ll increase your heart rate while also strengthening your muscles.
- 20 minutes
- Total body: You’ll improve your cardiovascular endurance and overall muscle tone of your upper body, core, legs and glutes
What You'll Need
- An exercise mat (optional)
- Two medium/heavy dumbbells; 5-15 pounds (use household items, such as water bottles, if you don’t have weights)
If using dumbbells, it's especially important to use weights that allow you to push yourself, without sacrificing form. In today's video, Kalie is using 8-pound and 12-pound dumbbells. Choose a weight that is appropriate for you and your strength.
