[MUSIC PLAYING] - What's up, y'all? As you know, I'm Joe. Welcome to this strength workout. It's going to be a great workout composed of a few circuits, not overwhelming. When you think about strength, a little bit of muscle and a little bit of strength, as it goes a long way as we age, but another key tip-- let's be real. We all want to look good. Easiest way to look good is to have a little bit more muscle. And then when you flex, when you're moving, when you're just feeling good, that allow you to be healthy. But, again, it's bigger than looks. It's about moving well. It's about being able to control yourself and then it's also about being strong. There's a lot of different components of strength, but with this one basically what we mean is strength under load. I want you to have good, quality movement while you're actually moving something that weighs a little bit. In this case, we're going to have a dumbbell. That's all you need. What a lot of people get confused about sometimes is what kind of dumbbells do I use. So I like to think about it like this. Our strength workouts really have a strength endurance, or muscular endurance capacity. What that means is we're basically kind of going to go for at least eight reps. When you're really just doing pure strength, the reps are usually five or less. It's going to be more than that, but not so much that it'll just be these nice, light, easy weights. Let's think about something that's moderate. Something that you probably heard is why would I want to do that? That will make me bulk up. No. You can still utilize moderate weights and not bulk up. But basically what we're doing is we're utilizing these moderate weights to get you stronger. I promise you. I've worked with some of the top models in the world, top athletes in the world, and I've not just gotten their mind right, but also their body right. And a key component of that is weight. So pick up some moderate weights and then push yourself a little bit. I promise you you'll have the results that you want. Now that you have a better understanding of how to eat with intent, once you begin to make that a part of your daily lifestyle, you'll start to notice even greater results from these workouts. All right. I would say good luck, but you don't need luck because you're already here. You just show up and put in the work. So let's just stay focused. The workouts not long and we're going to get into. We're gonna warm up. We'll have a couple circuits and then you'll be done, but you'll be feeling stronger, you'll learn a little bit too, and most importantly you'll feel fresh for tomorrow because I still need you to be active then as well. All right. So as always you're gonna start with our warm up. Our warm up is important just to get the blood flowing, but also especially when you do a strength workout you want to warm up the areas that we'll actually be focusing on. So we're just gonna start with the nice easy...
