30-Minute Hand Weight Workout (Only 1 Dumbbell Needed!)

Guys, I LOVE how this workout turned out! I put careful thought into choosing exercises that coordinate nicely with each other so you’d most effectively hit all your major muscle groups. Plus it’s all exercises that I actually enjoy doing, and I hope you will, too:


So, this is the 6th and final workout video I’ll be doing in this particular series. Each of the workouts in this series has been geared for beginners or active seniors, though more advanced exercisers can always benefit too… like in this workout, as an example, you’d just choose a heavier handweight. Hopefully you’ll continue to use all 6 workouts, as they each target something different. But I don’t just mean I hope you’ll do the workouts every so often. I created this series to encourage you to set a goal for yourself:

Do all 6 workouts each week for the next two months. THIS is my challenge to you.

After 8 weeks of that, you’re going to find yourself feeling (and likely even looking) differently: more strength, flexibility, coordination, balance, energy, and even better posture. When you’re interested in getting back into fitness, it can be overwhelming knowing where to start… well, I’ve made that easy for you. This is really all you need to get going.

And hey….

I know things are stressful and scary and surreal right now, but that’s all the more reason we’ve just GOT to be fighting for our health. Do you know what the very best medicine is that can improve our overall health?! If you follow me then yes you do. Cuz I say it all the time:


I love y’all enough to keep nagging, even now. Be well all; we WILL get through this together. ❤️🙏

      It’s about time I thanked you for your safe, well thought out and fun routines. I’ve taught fitness for many years and have borrowed quite a few of your ideas for my classes. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and creativity.

        I’m so happy to hear it! Back when I taught regularly, I’d to the same thing… seek out other instructors for ideas and inspiration. It’s challenging to keep it fresh and interesting when you’re teaching every day, I get it! Be well, Sue! xo
