Full body workout in 5 moves

image

Target multiple areas of the body with this full body workout using just two weighted plates.

Grab 2 plates of the same weight and let's get into the workout.

PureGym Insider Kay recommends starting with two 5kg plates for beginners. If this weight is too easy, then look to increase the weight but make sure the weight doesn't compromise your form.

This is a great workout if you're short on time as it avoids having to set up equipment. It's also great if you're looking for a full body workout that is weight-bearing but endurance focused too.
