Notes about The Home Team:
Each exercise has a video demonstration and text description. The videos are quick – usually just about 10 seconds so you can see the correct form. You can even watch them from right in the gym.
Most videos have text descriptions as well. If you have further questions, feel free to email me, or leave a comment under the specific exercise. email@example.com
The warm-up is just a suggestion.
The general rule is to do a dynamic warm-up first, and stretch after your training session. You can add in some easy movement such as walking or jogging, and light stretching, if that feels good to you.
The weights I suggest are also approximate.
Start light, assess how the set went, and adjust accordingly. Don’t be afraid to start light. If anything, you can chalk it up to a warm up set and increase on the next. As you go, you’ll become more familiar with your weight abilities for each exercise.
What do I need for the home workouts?
Short answer: a pair of light dumbbells, a pair of medium dumbbells, a heavy dumbbell or kettlebell, and bands. You can get more if you want more, but this is a solid start.
I want more. What should I get?
A hip circle.
Do I have to do the training sessions on the days they are posted?
No. I will publish them by Sunday. Do them in order, but on the days that you can.
