We have been getting so many requests to share some updated workouts with you all, so today, we are sharing an at-home full body workout! All you need is a set of dumbbells, and a workout/yoga mat, and yourself!
We love at-home workouts because you can get them in anytime, and you can get someone to join in with you, like your roommate or partner, or even your pet! We love full body workouts because you can target all parts of your body, and feel that burn. Best part is, you don’t have to spend a ton of time working out, either. Just a quick 15-20 minute workout is all you need!

Lunge with Curl
For this exercise, stand tall with your feet hip-distance apart. Next, take a large step forward and bend both knees at a 90-degree angle at the bottom of the lunge.
Bring arms up into a curl, and then bring legs back to starting position, and lower arms. Repeat with the other leg.
This exercise targets your full body (arms and legs), and also helps improve balance!
We recommend doing 4 sets of 12 reps per leg.
This is the best exercise you can do! It targets so many leg muscles, and you can do these so many ways. You can use weights, no weights, add a resistance band, add a jump, etc.
For this one, stand with feet hip-distance apart, and hold dumbbells at your sides. Gently lower your body down into a seated position, sticking your butt out. Hold for one second, and slowly return to the starting position.
We recommend doing 4 sets of 15 reps.
If you want sculpted shoulders, make sure you’re adding these into your workout routine!
To perform these, stand with dumbbell in each hand, and gently bend each elbow at 90 degrees with palms facing forward. To finish, straighten arms and press dumbbells to starting position.
We recommend doing 4 sets of 15-20 reps.
Here’s another lower body exercise! This one is like a regular lunge, but turned to the side, so it works different parts of your glutes and legs.
To do this one, start with feet shoulder-width apart and take a wide step to the left. Bend the left knee as you push your hips back, keeping the right leg straight.
Push off the left leg to return to starting position. Perform the same on the right side.
We recommend doing 4 sets of 12-15 reps per leg.
*You can do these weighted or unweighted.
You could add in some cardio with this workout like a walk, a run, or a bike ride, if you wanted!
