Total-Body Benefits of Full Body Tone with Heavy Weights Workout
Heavy Weights means heavier than normal for you!
Want a bit more information about how weights can really benefit you then read my blog Beginners Guide To Using Heavy Weights! Incorporating weights into a new workout plan can be a little intimidating at first. You’re trying to nail those moves, and the form, and just get through a routine that’s more challenging than what you’re used to! Or you may have never entertained the idea of using weights at all! Well, it might be a good time to start.
Don't have Limiting Beliefs - Take Action!
Having Fun : It is so important to have fun while working out! A fun exercise will give you something to be excited about, even in the toughest of times. On days when you're losing steam, something that sounds fun will always pick you back up and give you something to look forward to. When you exercise, it increases endorphins, dopamine, adrenaline and endocannabinoid, these are all brain chemicals associated with feeling happy, feeling confident, feeling capable, feeling less anxiety and stress and even less physical pain.
Exercise can be fun and sociable! Exercise and physical activity can be enjoyable. It gives you a chance to unwind, enjoy the outdoors or simply engage in activities that make you happy. Physical activity can also help you connect with family or friends in a fun social setting. Finding a way to give yourself a physical challenge while doing something you love is a great way to find long term fitness success.
Bring back the playfulness and fun to physical activity whenever you can. Consider ways to connect all forms of physical activity, including exercise, to a larger sense of enjoyment or satisfaction! A sense of connection, playfulness, and purpose is what is often missing from our modern attitude about physical activity and exercise.
Make sure when you are working out that you are enjoying it and having fun!
Full Body Tone with Heavy Weights Workout - What are we doing in today's workout?!
Half Squat with Kickback & Bicep Extension L & R : Use the weight with whatever feels good for you! Bring the weight forward and back ensuring that you are keeping a full range of movement. Push down on your heels as you squat and get as low as you can. Push your knees out to the side as you do this exercise. I am using an 8lb weight but heavier is ok, it's about what weight is right for you, what you are comfortable using and enjoying!
Start with your left side - left arm and left leg. Hold the weight in your hand, stand tall and extend your leg back. Step back with your leg and go back with the same arm, then come back up and move your arm forward. As you push down keep in a slow and controlled way, holding your core in nice and tight. Do 20 seconds on the left side and then switch to the right side. This exercise is all about the weights you are using and not about how many reps you make! Stay low in the squat, push down on your heels, come back all the way up and release. Most importantly is to have a full range of motion!
Curtsey Lunge to Lateral Raise L & R : Curtsey out to the side and as your leg comes back up lift your arm up and out to the side, holding the weight in your hand. Extend your arm out and remember every single movement that you make matters! Do a Curtsey Lunge down with the weight in your hand taking the arm down at the same time. As you come back up push out to the side. Really work hard on getting lower as you go back as this will really work your booty! Switch to the other side and take a nice big breath in. Get nice and low in that Curtsey Lunge with your shoulders lifted and your booty out to the side. Breathe through every single rep. Push that booty out and glide your arm out to the side. Try and get a bit lower whilst keeping your chest lifted and your shoulders down.
Keep the momentum going! Your body is getting stronger every time you show up!
Diagonal Front Raises : Position your feet hip distance apart. You need one weight, holding it in both hands out to the middle and out in front of you. Tuck your hips in and stand in the middle of the mat. Take it into a diagonal, out and across your body, twisting your core with each move. Drop your shoulders down and push the weight out to one side, back into the middle and then out to the other side. Pull your belly button in nice and tight. Making those Diagonal Extensions, your core is engaged and your obliques are on fire with every single rep that you do!
You are breathing through those barriers. You can do it!
Nice work! You should be getting hot, sweaty and be smiling!
