Hot Body Workout: How it Works
- Do this routine 2 or 3 days a week (not on consecutive days). Warm up with at
least 5 minutes of cardio.
- Do 3 sets of 8 to 12 reps with heavier weights on days 1 and 3. On day 2, use lighter weights and
do 3 sets but double the reps (aim for 16 to 20).
- Do the moves in order, resting for 45 seconds between sets. Choose a weight that allows you to maintain good form but is difficult to lift by the last few reps of each set.
Hot Body Workout: What You'll Need
A pair of 5- to 8-pound and 10- to 12-pound dumbbells, a bench, a resistance band, and a stability ball. Find them all at any sporting goods store.
