If you’re looking for a low impact workout, look no further. We’re big fans of moves that pack a big punch but are easy on your body to help you build strength and tone your muscles. We love this simple full-body workout from @fabfitfunwhich you can try with weights.
Our favourite weights to use are Bala or Koral 1lb weight. Do each move for 45 seconds, then rest for 1 minute, and restart the circuit again. Repeat three times.
