Be Well Workout of the Week: Your New Go-To Bench Workout

What you need for this week’s workout: one bench and one weight — that’s it! Well, a sturdy bench, I should say. Each exercise will incorporate the bench in some way, so you want to make sure it’s a good height for you and can support your weight.

You’re going to complete the circuit below five times, decreasing your reps by four each time. So you’ll start with 20 reps of each exercise, and by the fifth round, you’ll only have to do four. Nice, huh? Now, ready to sweat? Let’s do it! Read more »

Be Well Workout of the Week: Feel the Burn with Bigger Weights

Let’s do some heavy lifting this week, shall we? We’ll keep the reps low (about four to eight at a time for each exercise), so grab weights that are a bit heavier than you would normally use. For this workout, you’ll have three circuits of exercises, and you’ll go through each circuit three times doing eight reps for the first round, six for the second round, and four for the third round. Increase your weights as you go and make sure that last rep is tough to get through. And pay close attention to your form: You really want to engage your core and power through these exercises.

Okay, let’s do this! Read more »
