New year, new workout

By Kayla Hartson
Fitness Program Coordinator

Start 2021 off right this week with this strength-based workout.

Some of the benefits of weight training include increased strength, increased lean body mass, increased bone density and improved mobility and stability. The American College of Sports Medicine recommends training each major muscle group two to three days a week with at least 48 hours of rest between training sessions for the same muscle group. For general muscular fitness, it is recommended to train each muscle group for a total of two to four sets with eight to 12 repetitions per set. 

Start and finish your workout the right way!

Don’t forget to include a proper warm up and cool down as part of your routine.

Warm up: Before you begin, take 5 minutes to get your heart rate elevated and muscles warm. This includes a light jog and dynamic stretches.

Cool Down: After you complete the workout, take 5 minutes to safely lower your heart rate. This can include a slow walk and static stretches.

All you will need for this workout is a set of dumbbells.
