The Right Size Workout

Basic instructions: Do the workout that fits your ability three times per week. Rest for a minute or two between sets. You can also alternate between the arm, leg and core exercises as you go through the workout. For beginners, the most important thing is being able to do the repetitions. While doing intensified workouts, push yourself to lift more. If you have any questions, feel free to ask a Kanza Wellness Center trainer.
