I’ve discovered the ideal time span for a workout: about 30 minutes, aka the amount of time it takes to finish an episode of Friends.
After work yesterday, I wasn’t feeling any of my past workouts, so I created a new one that works the upper and lower body, and it conveniently took as long as an episode of Friends I had on in the background. This routine works a little bit of everything in the arms, shoulders, thighs, and booty. I went through the circuit twice and used my 5- or 10-lb. dumbbells for the exercises with an asterisk next to them.
All exercises have been featured in my past workouts, but as always, check my exercise guide for video demonstrations if you need to see an example. Enjoy the burn-so-good workout!
