Happy FIT FRIDAY babes (: I’ve got a full body strength workout for y’all today!

Total Body Toner Workout

A lot of women tend to skip strength workouts and opt for more cardio…MISTAKE! Strength (or weight) training is where we build those curves and muscle definition! Give this workout a try and let me know what you think.

Equipment You’ll Need:

  • Dumbbells (I used 10 pounds)

Workout Praintable/Breakdown:

Total Body Toner

Do this 4 times through:

Side Burpees x12 per side: Jump back into a plank, but instead of going straight back, go to the left. Your hips should stay facing the ground. Jump back up and power up into a jump. Repeat but jumping to the right side.

Deadlift to High Pull x12: Hold the weights at the front of your body. Slowly lower down, knees slightly bent, keeping the back of your legs straight. You should feel a stretch in your hamstrings. Keep your back flat. Roll back up and raise your elbows toward the ceiling.

Forward Plank Raises x12 (alternate arms): Start in a plank while holding 2 dumbbells. Slowly raise one arm forward. Bring it back down and switch arms. Keep your feet spread apart to help with balance.

Plank Straight Leg Crossovers x12 (alternate legs): Start in a plank. Take your right foot and swing it under and across your body. Repeat with other leg. Keep your butt down and core tight.

Dumbbell Snatch x12 per Side: Bend down into a squat and reach across your body to grab the dumbbell. Pull the dumbbell up directly over you. Keep the weight close to your body. This should be 1 smooth motion.

Squat Hold Straight Arm Openers x12: Hold a squat position with the dumbbells out in front of you. Slowly open your arms, keeping them straight, while still in the squat.

Happy sweating and happy weekend!

xo, Jess
