Good Host Weight-Training Workouts

Quick and effective holiday training routines

Last week’s article was “Good Host Cardio” Workouts . Now here are some jam-packed weight-training programs that will get you back home to your company before they know you’re gone. You can pair these with one of last week’s cardio programs or do them on their own. With some of the exercises below you will see “drop sets.” Drop sets are when you do repetitions until failure while dropping (decreasing) weight with no rest between drops. The last drop should be extremely difficult to finish. For example: For dumbbell bicep curls, start out with 20-pound dumbbells and do 8 reps, then drop down to 15 pounds for 10 reps, then drop down to 10 pounds for 15 pounds.
