Workout of the Week
Weighted Strength Circuit

Instructions
Find a space that is clear in front, behind, and to each side of you to avoid injury. Perform a warm-up that consists of an activity that gradually increases your heart rate and moves your joints through a moderate to large range of motion. Perform each exercise in the warm-up for 45 seconds. After completing the workout perform a cool-down that allows your heart rate to gradually slow down to a normal rate. Hold static stretches for 20-30 seconds.

It is encouraged that you modify each exercise to a version that is best for you.

Workout
Complete 12-15 repetitions of each exercise in Circuit 1, going through the circuit 3-4 times total. Once finished with Circuit 1, move on to Circuit 2 completing 12-15 repetitions of each exercise and repeating the circuit 3-4 times total. Take 30-60 seconds rest in between each full circuit round.

Equipment Needed: 2 dumbbells or other weighted objects. Feel free to add or remove weight for a workout that best fits your needs.
