Strengthen with Weight Training

Weight training sculpts lean muscle, improves your strength, and revs up your metabolism so you feel more at home in your body.

Plie With Bicep Curls
Body
Works the biceps, which pull desirables toward you; strengthens legs and arms together for faster results.

Mind
Builds confidence to reach for what you want and deserve in your life.

What You Need
A set of 2- to 3-pound hand weights (for a greater challenge, increase to 5 pounds).

How to Do It
Stand with legs 3 feet apart, toes rotated out, knees pointing over the toes. Hold a weight in each hand. Engage your core and buttock muscles. Bend your knees to a challenging (but not painful) degree, keeping your spine tall and your knees aligned with your second and third toes, as you raise your hands to your collarbone. Hold for three breaths, and return to starting position. Repeat 10 to 15 times. Do three sets.

  

Tricep Press
Body
Tones and develops the triceps, used to push undesirables away.

Mind
Teaches you to let go of what no longer serves you.

What You Need
A set of 2- to 3-pound hand weights

How to Do It
Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, bending at the hips with a flat back. Let your arms hang down, palms back. Take a breath and then exhale, pressing the arms back until they're slightly raised above the hips. Repeat 10 to 15 times. Do three sets.
