Fitness Friday: 20 Minute Dumbbell Workout

This week all of the VE girls are at Rosemary Beach for April’s bachelorette (full report to come.) So we purchased some 10 and 15 pound dumbbells from the nearest Target and asked Olivia to put together a quick full body workout for our weekend away. We are all scheduled to do this Saturday morning, so pray for us.

Out of all the fitness gear Olivia owns, these leggings are her favorite. Mainly because they look like ripped jeans and she can wear them out, in the fall, with a cute top, she says. Check out her ripped look and 20 minute dumbbell workout below:

Single Leg Dead Lifts (6 reps, each leg)

Simultaneously lift leg while dropping the weights toward the ground. Keep a flat back and slightly bent knee during this move.

Repeat this rotation 3 times and do 15 minutes of your favorite cardio… you’re choice. Olivia prefers to run stairs or jump rope.
