My recommended FE-Life workout for today is a leg buster. You will need two lightweight dumbbells or kettlebells, and open flat space to move around in.
- Target Muscles: legs, hips, glutes, biceps
- 1-10 Difficulty Rating: 7.5
- Workout Time: 20 minutes
Ensure that your muscles are warm; I recommend doing the Moji warm-up.
Do one-hundred walking lunges while holding light weights in each arm. You can do the lunges outside on a track, or even on a low-traffic street; or, you can do them indoors. If you do them indoors, simply lunge back and forth across a large room. Try to do all one-hundred in one set; do not take mid-set breaks. During lunges eleven through twenty, thirty-one through forty, fifty-one through sixty, and so on, do alternating arm curls with the weights as you lunge.
Based on your fitness, you can do the lunges without holding weights, or you can do them with reasonably heavy weights. Take note, however, that weights that are too heavy can break proper lunge form, and or be straining on your back.
Go for a brisk walk or a casual jog of at least two-miles a few hours before or after the workout.
I post a new workout each day of the week. Clearly, “rest days” are prudent in anyone’s workout schedule. My advice is to select four or five of the workouts I recommend in a week, and do them over four or five days—one workout per day; rest on the other days. I always list the target muscles each routine calls upon. It would be wise to choose workouts that address the entire body over a given week.
