[FIVE ROUNDS] Of Fitness
Simple Exercises for Physical Health

Movement is a catalyst for creating positive change in all areas of our lives. Strength training complements ALL the things we do with our bodies. Think about all the times you’ve pulled heavy garbage cans to the curb, carried bags of groceries up the stairs or given piggyback rides to your kids/grandkids. These are all strength-based movements. It is nice to look good, but at the end of the day, we all want to be capable of moving our bodies well so that we can enjoy our lives to the fullest.
Equally as important, are workouts that focus on your heart health—cardio! Incorporating a balanced mix of endurance workouts with strength training movements will provide endless benefits, and it is NEVER too late to start!

Focus: Leg Day at Home  Complete five rounds of 16-20 reps of each movement.
