Full Body Weightlifting Circuit

The best advice I’ve received in regards to developing a fitness plan for myself is that it’s important to incorporate weight training and not just cardio in order to lose weight and tone the body. A few summers ago, I spent 3-4 days a week training with my friend Kimber and she put together this weight training circuit that I am still using to this day. Alternating between upper and lower body circuits, this workout targets the major muscle groups in the legs, upper and lower back, shoulders, arms, and core. Switching between 5lb, 8lb, or 10lb weights depending on your preference, it’s a low-weight, varied repetitions approach with a twist. Instead of following the typical 1 count up/down routine, Kimber’s workout utilizes varying counts to challenge and confuse the muscles from start to finish and raise your heart rate. Another reason I love this circuit is that it’s easy and convenient to do in the comfort of your own home (if you have your own handweights).
