Morning Workout Routine

By March 7, 2019workout

Morning workouts don’t necessarily have to be the most intense workout as soon as you wake up. Just moving your body any way you are capable of for at least a few minutes, is an accomplishment in itself. Fitness expert, Amanda Russell, shows us one of her favorite ways to start her morning using just one piece of equipment to get your heart rate up and running.

Using weighted gloves, Amanda shows us some kickboxing moves to do from anywhere, to help sculpt every muscle in your arms and how it can even be used for cardio moves, like jumping jacks.  Weighted gloves are great for burning more calories, sculpting and increasing endurance while sparring, kickboxing, walking, jogging, and cross-training. Each glove is 1 lb and is the perfect accessory to have on hand for upper body sculpting. Will you be giving this workout a try today?
