by purelytwins

Hello Purely Fitters,

Are you ready to work the body from head to toe?


move it monday youtube - weight workout

It’s Move-it-Monday! And we have #purelyfitlife #20!!!

Crazy that we are sharing our 20th workout video already. THANK YOU for all of the love and support! We could not do anything without all of you! And we are so happy that we reached 1,000 subscribers. Seriously thank you!!! This means so much to us! Love you guys!ย Now onto 2,000 and beyondย ๐Ÿ™‚

We had so much fun filming this workout for you! We are so grateful for every time we get to create a new one to help make YOU stronger!

Yes this workout will be working the FULL body, but it has a strong focus on working the upper body. Especially your core and BACK!

It takes time to build muscle. For us using our own body weight and free weights has allowed us to grow our muscles! It might take a little bit longer than lifting really heavy on machines at a gym, but we are pleased with our hard work. Remember you can get in great shape at home! Just keep working hard!!

As you see in the video, there was laughing involved. We promise we were prepared to film this, haha.

Here is the FULL body WEIGHT workout breakdown:

We suggest:

  • A-fits (advanced peeps) : Use a heavy weight. Limit the rest in between sets.
  • B-fits (beginnerย peeps): Go at your own pace. Use bodyweight or light weight.

Now it’s your time to workout with us!

We hope you like this workout. We love adding in free weights to our home workouts from time to time. Don’t be afraid of weights! Free weights are your friends. Great thing about adding in weights too is that you get to control the intensity. Always listen to your body and keep good form, but try to challenge yourself with going a little heavier when you can.

This workout is great for all fitness levels as you can control the pace and the amount of weight used!

And of course smiling is recommended when working out ๐Ÿ˜‰

Thanks as always for the support. We will see you again here soon.

Twins question: Do you like using free weights? What is your favorite free weight exercise?

Another great workout – my back and shoulders are my weakest areas so I definitely need this one!

our back is a weak area for us, so we were sore after this one ๐Ÿ™‚

Great Workout, my shoulders are such a weak part so this is perfect.
Love the turquoise tanktop!!

Great workout as usual! I love that each exercise movement works completely different areas at the same time, love the arm moves with planking. Such creativity!

I love free weight exercises! One of my favorites is 1-Arm renegade row, I like this better than holding both dumbbells and alternating. Doing 1-Arm at a time is easier on the wrist allowing you to feel more grounded and focus more on form and stabilizing the hips. ๐Ÿ™‚

You’re right! An oldie but goodie ๐Ÿ™‚ – have a great day!!!
