The exercises are performed for 30 seconds each, 30 seconds rest. The exercises are performed for 3 sets each.
The weight I am using is 15kg x 2 dumbbells for your reference. So yes, as heavy as you have access to and slow paced, controlled and full range of motion. If you have lighter weights than you would prefer, simply perform more reps than me and at a slightly faster pace.
SUMO DEADLIFT SQUAT
STATIC LUNGE (switch leg everytime)
SHOULDER PRESS (2 or 1 dumbbells)
BENT OVER ROW (switch arm everytime)
I would just like to point out the following key points to this workout:
● Be sure to switch leg on lunges every set and switch arm on rows every set!
● With the single arm rows, try to stretch upper middle back by taking it slow at bottom to let muscles lengthen then draw elbow up. Switch arm every set!
● I am performing the shoulder press with one dumbbell as well as Sumo deadlift, however if your weights are lighter than you wish, simply perform with both dumbbells!
● Make sure during Romanian deadlifts to keep shoulder blades together, knees slightly bent, push bum back and keep head in line with torso as it lowers!
I hope you all enjoy this strength training and really allow yourself to feel each contraction!
I would consider this strength workout a super workout to progress in weight over time! I would definitely suggest this type of full body workout with dumbbells once a week if you really are wanting to increase muscle, along with bodyweight sessions and isolation sessions as such shoulders, glutes etc. Overtime, aiming to increase reps then move up in weights!💪
And don’t forget.. plank 2 minutes at the end!!🤩
