Full body, strong body.

I frequent a few gyms in Nashville and Shed Fitness is one of my top choices. Amzie, the owner of Shed, has trained me and trained April through her wedding. If you live in Nashville and you are on an advanced workout level his 6am class is perfect. The other class times are great for all workout levels. Every class is different and allows for muscle confusion. And there is such a variety of machines for a group workout, such as stairs for running, row machines, the Woodway curve treadmills, heavy ropes ect.  His staff has a laid back approach, although they push you they don’t scare you. Because who wants to die in a workout. Since I am out of town this week I recruited Amzie to share a full body workout that you can do from home. This is a great workout to incorporate into your weekly routine. And if you are in Nashville, I more than encourage you to try Shed Fitness. You can follow them on instagram @shedgroupfitness.

Amzie’s Full Body Workout

Hey guys, Amzie here!

Today I am going to walk you through a full body workout. This is great to do at home or on the road.  All you need is a pair of dumbbells. You should use a weight that is difficult but allows you to get through the reps with correct form.

Each set of two exercises is to be done back to back.

Set 1: Back and Shoulders
