THE WORKOUT: 7 Best Free Weight Exercises for Women
EQUIPMENT: Medium-to-Heavy Set of Dumbbells
This workout uses free weights to strengthen the upper body, lower body and core muscles. This is approximately a 20-minute workout if you go up the pyramid, and a 40-minute workout if you come back down the pyramid. Note, this workout is performed in timed intervals. I personally love using the Tabata Pro Timer App on my phone.
Perform each exercise for 30 seconds, adding on moves as you climb up the pyramid.
So it will look like this:
Set 1: Perform Move 1 for 30 seconds, followed by 30 seconds of rest.
Set 2: Perform Move 1 for 30 seconds + Move 2 for 30 seconds, followed by 30 seconds of rest.
Set 3: Perform Move 1 for 30 seconds + Move 2 for 30 seconds + Move 3 for 30 seconds, followed by 30 seconds of rest.
Continue this stack-on, pyramid format until you complete moves 1 through 7. Then you have the option to go back down the pyramid in reverse order, dropping off Move 1, then Move 2, then Move 3 and so on.
