AMAZING EXERCISE TOOLS & SOME WAYS (WORKOUTS) TO USE THEM

PRO TIP-Some of the stuff I link out to on Amazon goes out of stock on occasion. If you click on a link and the product says ‘currently unavailable’ then you can scroll down and find similar products (that are in stock).

Dumbbells (women need dumbbells!)

Light dumbbells (like these pink 3 lb. DB’s) have a place (for beginners and high rep routines targeting smaller muscle groups) but if you exercise regularly you’ll need heavier dumbbells. 

Using the link you’ll see 3, 5, 8, 10, 12 and 15 lb. colored weights.  The ones I use the most often are 10-15 lbs. but I also use my 20, 25 and 30 lb. dumbbells for certain exercises.

PRO TIP-Make sure you buy these in pairs!

Pull-Up Assist Band

Most women (and many men) will need one of these to do more than one pull up.

Push-Up Stands

I use these for every workout with push-ups.  You get deeper range of motion and it’s easier on your wrists than push-ups on the floor.

If this style is out of stock then try and find a different style that do NOT swivel. Most women don’t need that swivel. (It puts extra strain on the wrists and makes an exercise that’s already difficult almost impossible–and dangerous.)

Aerobic Step

This tool is a gamechanger for most women’s home exercise programs (and my favorite piece of equipment).

These come in hot pink and blue and you can buy them with 4 or 6 risers.

I recommend a 6 or 8 lb. ball for most women (you don’t need to buy them in pairs).

A Barbell

This barbell holds up to 65 lbs.  It’s been a great barbell for my own home exercise routine (I do a lot of high rep routines with lighter weight).  It’s perfect for most women who workout at home.
