A full body workout is where we all need to start. Full body workouts are also good when you want to save time and you don’t have enough times per week to visit the gym, instead you can do this workout 3-4 times per week and you’re set. Better yet, you can do a full body workout at home. This workout applies to both males and females even though weights may defer.
All you need for a home-workout routine is a set of dumbbells (weights are according to your athletic history, if your goal is to do this for the long-term I advise getting the interchangeable dumbbell set).
1. Push-ups, target muscle: chest
This is a great workout for your chest and core.
To do it: Your hands should be placed slightly wider than your shoulders. As you’re going down and back up, keep your back and trunk area straight and parallel to the ground.
Variation: Doing the form while on your knees is easier. If you can’t do the regular push-up form, start out on your knees for the first few weeks making sure to be lowering your entire torso and not only your arms. You will eventually find yourself getting up to the advanced position.
Sets and reps: 3 x 12
