The YLF Community Workout of the Day

Do each of the moves at a comfortable pace for at least five minutes. The main goal with these workouts is to get you in the habit of strength training on a regular basis. If you're just starting out, getting back into exercise or aren't doing any type of strength work now, these would be a good addition to what you're already doing.

Before Starting

  1. Make sure your physician has cleared you for regular exercise.
  2. If you're not exercising now, begin a regular walking routine of at least 15 minutes a day, 3 days a week. Do this for two weeks before starting with strength training.
  3. Do a five minute warm-up. You can even use a mix of the moves I give you as a warm-up, just don't do them with weights.
  4. Drink water before, during and after your workout.

Keep in Mind

  1. You don't have to do every workout. 3-5 a week would be enough to develop the habit of home exercise.
  2. Resistance bands can be used for almost all of these workouts. If you don't have a set of bands, try these.  Any other strength equipment you have is an acceptable substitute.
  3. Play around with different rep set ranges and tempos "tempo variation is really underrated when it comes to building strength. :)" 
  4. Much lighter weight with proper technique trumps heavy weight every time...got it bro?
  5. If you need further guidance on any of the moves send an email to daryl@yourlevelfitness.com or direct message me on Instagram
  6. Be sure to upload post workout pics on Instagram including #ylfWOD in the text.
