A Powerful 6 Move At-Home Workout

A Powerful 6 Move At-Home Workout

If you haven’t already developed a good at-home workout routine, it’s definitely not too late! Making sure you’re getting regular exercise is about more than just getting physically fit. It’s beneficial for immunity, reducing stress, building strength, flushing out toxins and maintaining a healthy mindset.

Put down those car keys: these six moves are meant for your living room.

By doing exercises with little rest in between, your body is forced to consume more oxygen both during your workout and afterwards. The more oxygen your body requires, the more unwanted body fat it must use as energy!

It’s also important to target as many muscles as you can within one workout. This routine uses head-to-toe dumbbell exercises to hit all your major muscle groups, guaranteeing max calories burned in a short amount of time.

To do: Perform each exercise, resting for 15 to 20 seconds before moving on to the next. When done, rest 45 to 60 seconds, then repeat the series of exercises up to three times.
