Tonight was a repeat of the workout I did last week from the Feb 2015 issue of Women’s Running – this is the start of the second week I’ve been doing this one and I’m intending to continue it until the end of this week before having a rummage for another one in one of my other magazines to start alternating with.

I’m finding the first set of reps in the session comfortable to easy with the 1.5kg, though by the 3rd set particularly for the arm exercises the weight is a bit more of a work-out level push. I’ve ordered a set of 2kg hand weights from Amazon with the intention of using them for at least one set for the arm exercises, and the full workout for the legs ones. I may decide to order a set of 3kg hand weights for the squat type exercises but we’ll see how we get on with the 2kg ones.

Equipment: 1.5kg hand weights

Time: 20 mins + warm-up/cool-down

  • 10 reps – 3 sets of each
    • Dumbbell Bent Over Row
    • Dumbbell Lunges
    • Dumbbell Triceps Kickback – each side
    • Crunches – straight and each side obliques
    • Dumbbell Shoulder Press
    • Dumbbell Squats
    • Kneeling Side Leg Lift – each side
    • Toe Taps
