10-Minute Tuneups™: Free weights

One of the shortest routes to attaining an overall feeling of wellness is by performing weight-bearing exercises. We like free weights, as they are one of the simplest, most effective ways to add resistance to your muscles, joints and bones.

To get you started, we’ve created a customized workout specially designed to release mood-boosting endorphins and stimulate the beneficial side effects that relieve stress. In just 10 minutes, it works your entire body using traditional and effective resistance training moves.

Perform these stress-relieving exercises three times a week for maximum results. Choose dumbbell free weights raining from three to eight pounds, depending on your current fitness level.

Before you know it, you’ll be saying sayonara to stress.
