Beginner Strength Workout
Strength training doesn’t have to be complicated, intimidating, or painful. You don’t need to spend hours in the gym either to see significant results. It can be done in the comfort of your own home with just a set of dumbbells. If you’re new to working out with weights, you can grab a set of 3, 5, or 8 lb weights.
Some benefits of strength training include:
Increased muscle tone
Burn more fat
Reduced risk to injury
If you’re new to lifting weights, this is a great beginner workout to get you started. The workout consists of 2 trisets. Compete each triset 1-3 times depending on your experience. If you’re new to lifting weights, just try one set each initially and work your way up. A triset is a group of three exercises you complete in succession. Take a 30-60 second rest in between each triset.
