Full Body Workout Routines for Toning Can Be Done in Just 30 Minutes!

I rarely do the same workout week after I week, I’m always switching things up. It keeps me from getting bored and also keeps me out of a fitness rut. Here I’ve included a video demo featuring my workout of the moment, which is designed to tone every major muscle from head to toe. And, as usual, it’s a circuit training workout (my favorite!) What’s also great about this workout is 1) it’s super time-efficient, 2) it’s a full-body workout that burns calories and also increases your resting metabolism and 3) you can do it anywhere!

Some of the exercises in this circuit training workout are yoga and boxing inspired. I’ve also added in some balancing moves, which are highly effective for increasing the intensity of the exercise and toning muscles without placing unnecessary stress on your joints (it’s surprising how challenging it can be to balance on one foot!) Be sure to concentrate on the movements and don’t rely on momentum. It’s always better to do the exercise with correct form and to focus on quality over quantity of reps or the amount of weight lifted. Take your time to learn the proper form and don’t use excessively heavy weights.

Equipment:

The only equipment you’ll need are 2 pairs of dumbbells.

Beginners will want to use 1 and 5 pound dumbbells and advanced exercisers will want to use 3 and 8 pound dumbbells. Follow the below workout program 3 days a week to get fitter, firmer, faster!

Full Body Workout Routines for Toning Can Be Done In Just 30 Minutes!

Here’s a Good One To Get You Started….

  • 10 minute cardio-warm up. Choose any cardio exercise you like. If you are doing this exercise at home you can go outside and do a brisk walk or jog lightly. You can also jump rope, dance, climb stairs, ride a stationary bike, etc. If you are at a gym, start the workout on your favorite cardio equipment (treadmill, bike, elliptical trainer, stair stepper, etc). If you want to try something super fun and totally different, try a hula hoop workout . Whatever you choose, the cardio warm-up is simply intended to increase your heart rate, so you just make sure you are working out at an intensity that makes you slightly out of breath (not exhausted though!)
