Want to burn more calories? Pick up a dumbbell or a barbell and pump that iron!
Incorporate weights into your favorite workout exercises, such as squats and lunges.
Be sure to use proper form and technique to prevent injury when adding weights. Start with a small weight, like 1, 5, or 10 pounds, then slowly increase the weight as you build muscle. Try ankle and wrist weights for a hands-free option as well!
If possible, have a gym instructor or personal trainer help you get started and tailor a weights program to your specific fitness goals.
