Fitness Question and Answer

We all have questions when it comes to fitness. The five questions that I am going to answer in this video are:

  1. How much cardio should I do?
  2. I’m currently going to school, working full-time, and have other commitments. I want to make working out a priority but can’t even fit in just an hour long workout per day. What should I do?
  3. I want to clean up my diet but I am a fussy eater. Any suggestions?
  4. What is an active rest day, and how many times per week should I take one?
  5. I am getting less sweaty during my workouts. Am I slacking?

Full Body Dumbbell Workout

This fitness routine is going to kick your butt in less than 30 minutes.

The Protocol

5 exercises. 45 seconds work/15 seconds rest per exercise. Complete an entire round of all exercises. Rest one minute. Repeat for a total of 5 rounds!

The Exercises

Dumbbell Thruster- The key here is to keep your core tight and to drive through your heels! Make sure that butt sinks down below parallel!

Half Burpee with Dumbbell Concentration Curl- This is a fun fitness move! You are going to do a half burpee with dumbbells, but instead of standing up after you jump your feet back you are going to stay in a squat and perform a hammer curl with your elbows tight against your knees!

Dumbbell Overhead Curtsy Lunge- Repeat this move for about 20 seconds per side, then switch. Keep the core tight, arm straight, and weight in the front heel!

Renegade Row with Triceps Push-Up- Wooohooo this is a burner! Core tight, row with one arm, then the other, then hit that triceps push-ups. This is not a fast move. Take your time!

Side Lunge with High Pull- Do this move for 20 seconds on each side. Keep the weight in the heel of the leg you are lunging with. Keep that core tight!
