Here’s how to get started:
• Weighted ball. They start as light as one to two pounds. For these exercises, choose one between three pounds (if you are a beginner) and 10 pounds (if you are advanced). A convenient size to fit in your hands is seven to 10 inches in diameter. Or use an unweighted beach, soccer or volleyball.
• Shoes. Wear cross-trainers, or any shoes that are supportive and allow movement in all directions.
• Warm-up. To get your muscles ready to work, walk briskly around the block or on the spot for three minutes.
• How often. Do our routine three times a week. For a well-rounded program, add cardio. And stretch after every workout.
