Maegan Million’s At-Home Muscular Endurance Workout

Workout With a Local

This full-body workout is all about building muscular endurance and can be performed virtually anywhere! Removing the added challenge of dumbbells or barbells encourages you to focus on moving optimally through each movement. This ultimately sharpens your form when you load or progress the exercises down the road. Each of these movements can be scaled up or down, depending on your ability level. Perform each move for the recommended number of reps with 30-60 seconds of rest in between for 3-5 rounds.”

Bench Tricep Dips

Sit down on a bench, with your hands next to your thighs. (You can also perform this move off a stair or other elevated surface.)

Walk your feet out and extend your legs, lift your bottom off the bench, and hold there with extended arms.

Bending at the elbow, lower your body down as far as you can go, or until your arms form a 90-degree angle.

Push up through your palms back to start.

Focus on keeping your elbows pointing straight behind you and your body as close to the bench as possible as you dip down.

Perform 8-10 reps.

Alternate tapping your hand to the opposite shoulder while keeping your hips squared and minimizing any shifting.
