Throughout this Straight Up Strength workout Sam Cameranesi will provide you with upper body, lower body, total body, and core combinations. Working in intervals of 45 seconds on, 15 seconds of rest the goal of each interval is to work as hard as you can during the working interval and take the 15 seconds rest to recuperate before the next movement. The benefits of doing strength workouts with a work to rest ratio is to work on power and form through each movement.
Sam Cameranesi will coach you through the working intervals as Sheila Chenier works alongside you, providing low impact options for everyone! As we always say at Get Healthy U TV, “No Shame in the Modify Game!” Even throughout this lower impact workout, you will notice that the heart rate will increase just by picking up heavier dumbbells. Trainers Sam Cameranesi, JC Lippold, and Sheila Chenier will show you that you can work at your own pace, making the workout your own.
This 40-minute strength workout is meant for you to follow along, have fun and most importantly focus on form, speed, and control while using heavy dumbbells. Squats, lunges, high-pulls, and push-ups are just some of the movements you are going to see during this straight up strength workout. The beauty of this strength workout is that you will use more muscles therefore burning more calories!
Do not be afraid to have 2 – 3 sets of dumbbells to choose from throughout this workout. Our advice is to start with the heaviest set of weights you are comfortable using for each movement, and drop down as needed if your exercise form starts to falter.
