Upper body, lower body, or full-body, this class utilizes heavy weights to build muscle in the safest, most effective ways. Shannon recommends this class for all members to take regularly, and she gives joint-friendly modifications in every class so you can have the most success without flaring up your joints.
How to select weights: Your weights should feel heavy, but manageable. Shannon uses between 12lb-20lb (depending on the lift), and recommends beginners start with 5-8lb. If you're not able to get through more than half the set without taking a break, your weights are too heavy. If you don't feel fatigued by the end of the set, your weights are too light.
Full Body Build: Quads, glutes, chest, biceps, triceps (1-24-22)
(Reminder: You CAN use body weight or light weights only and still engage your muscles!)
