A Beginner's Guide: Strength Workout

Beginning a strength training routine can be intimidating if you've never done strength exercises before, or if it's been a long time. Let SAFFP take the intimidation out of your first workout! Just follow along with this quick, simple strength routine 2-3 days per week to help get you started!

Set a timer for 10, 20, or 30 minutes (pick your time based on your own schedule). Try to complete as many rounds as possible of the following exercises:

Body weight squats (use chair for assistance as needed)

Push ups (modified on knees as needed or on wall)

Hamstring bridges (Single leg makes these harder!)

Superman Plank (modified on knees as needed)

Mountain climbers (can be modified as an incline mountain climber by using a chair or wall)

Each exercise lasts for 30 seconds with a 15 second rest in-between!

How many rounds did you complete? Let us know in the comments!
