March Workout with Energy Fitness

For the month of March, we’re stepping up our workout with a 5 exercise set that you can do at home or the gym! All you need is a pair of dumbbells. Use a weight that you’re comfortable with for 5-7 rounds of each exercise. If you’re a beginner – start by doing this circuit for 4-5 reps (do each exercise 4-5 times) if your advanced, aim for 7-8.
