Fitness Challenge: Start lifting weights!

Want to burn more calories? Pick up a dumbbell or a barbell and pump that iron!

The Challenge:

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.
