This session is for your back (not that you’d realize ), utilising the humble dumbell as our main tool. Every exercise is focused on posture, balance, and movement through the spine.
We do not use kettlebells in our studio. The reason for this is almost everything that you can do with a kettlebell, you can also do with a dumbell, but the reverse is not true. Dumbells are therefore, in our view, more functional and versatile.
The point is to move as quickly as possible between exercises, to keep the heart rate up, then modify your weight, sets, and reps according to your goal:
1) Muscle gain – heavy weight, 5 sets of 5-10 reps
2) Muscle endurance – moderate weight, 2-3 sets of 15-20 reps
In this way we both burn fat/calories, and increase strength (20 birds with one stone guys!!)
