Remember, ” Muscle is a twenty-four-hour furnace, allowing you to burn more calories even at rest.  Muscle is the body’s major metabolic booster.  The famous “yo-yo” dieting syndrome is a result of muscle loss, if you diet without exercising, you lose muscle along with fat and the loss of muscle tissue translates into a slowdown, sometimes a shutdown of your metabolism.  Eating less will help you lose weight, but building muscle will help you keep it off.”  ~ Judith Sherman


So here is how this challenge is going to work  


  • This challenge can be started at anytime.  Always start with week 1, week 2, week 3…week 8 and so on.  Once you start the challenge, continue on it for 8 consecutive weeks.
  • For your next  8 weeks, I have pre done daily posts with the exercises that you need to do for your specific week.  Each week you will be given a dumbbell routine on Monday, Wednesday & Friday and a stretching routine on Saturday/Sunday.
  • A library of workouts can be found under the “coaching” tab at the top of this website under “Free 8 Week Dumbbell Challenge”  I am doing this as I go and the start date is January 7, 2013 so please note that the library won’t be complete until 8 weeks from that date.  Follow along with us!  We will be doing updates on our Facebook Page as we work our way through this program.  
  • I will include an animated image (courtesy of an amazing free site & showing you how to do the exercise.  
  • The only equipment needed is an exercise ball and dumbbells.
  • You will get 4 workouts a week showing you how to do the exercises:  3 dumbbell workout routines and 1 stretch workout routine.  
  • So if I work your chest and arms, then I will not work them the next few days and so forth.  I will work different muscles throughout this program.
  • Support can be found at any time in the posts below the animated exercises in the comment section that reads “Join The Conversation” & on our Facebook Page.  Every comment will be answered.  Share your support, successes, challenges, questions, and feedback in this section.
  • Incorporate this exercise program into your daily exercise routine and you will be amazed how tone and fit you can get in 8 weeks!  
  • Don’t have an exercise routine?  Start out with this 8 week challenge and you will see results!  
  • Please sign in (below) so we can get to know you better.  If you would like to submit a before and after picture, fill the form out below!  We would love to see your transformation! (this is not required)
