I received an email a few weeks ago asking for a strength training workout for beginners and toning newbies and I thought, what a great idea! Many of the workouts on FitFabCities are totally suitable for beginners, but this one has exercises that I think are the best for anyone who is getting started. There are single muscle group exercises, and instead of lunges and step ups, we’ll use plies and basic squats which are easier on the knees. Plus, you’ll only do each exercise for 30 seconds and take frequent 30 second breaks ( to make the workout harder, just shorten the breaks).
The workout should take about 15 minutes and you can do it at home with only a pair of dumbbells and a chair. So try fitting it in while watching your favorite TV show or try waking up 15 mintues earlier at getting your workout on!
