Workout of the Week: Power Play!

The power is in your hands! It’s also in your shoulders, your biceps, your triceps, your forearms…

We designed a great workout to power you (and your body) up! All it requires are dumbbells and effort.

You might not think power is sexy, but it does come in handy. Just imagine a normal run to the local grocery store. You’ll push a cart full of groceries (and possibly a child if you have one), lift items off the shelves to put into your cart, hoist those same items onto the conveyor belt when you’re about to pay, and take them in and out of your car.

Even a little power and strength will spare your arms from feeling the pain (without gains).

You’ll be doing 3 rounds of 4 minute-long stations. That means you’ll spend a minute at each station, no transition break (you’ll get a minute of rest during each round). Simple enough?

It’s power hour!
