This 15-Minute Workout Will Challenge Your Upper Body In A Whole New Way
Starting in January 2019,Women's Health rather than fitness models in the magazine's "15-Minute Workout" series. Here, Morgan Gibson Kanner, digital content manager atWeddingWire, kicks it off! !
If you're looking to change up your workout routine, consider throwing a weight plate into the mix. This simple barbell accessory can help you refine your technique during upper-body exercises (courtesy of its shoulder-width diameter), add difficulty to basic strength exercises (placing one hand or foot on the plate offers a subtle but effective change in elevation), and master rotational movements (the unique weight distribution can make it easier to twist without compromising form).
To test it out for yourself, try this total-body workout (here, using a 10-pound weight) created by Idalis Velazquez, certified personal trainer and founder of I.V. Fitness in Miami. Crank this circuit in order, resting only as needed. Repeat as many times as you can in 15 minutes, and do it two or three times a week for major results.
