2-Week Workout Program Details

1. Gym Equipment Needed:

A Set of Dumbbells. Most of the daily workouts require a set of dumbbells. Each weight training workout will have a recommended dumbbell weight, usually between 8-20 pounds. You want a weight heavy enough that your last few reps are a struggle, but you are still able to complete the workout with good form.

Optional Exercise Equipment: 

Mini Loop Resistance Band. You can add a resistance band to the leg exercises to increase the intensity. These are the mini loop resistance bands I have (DISCOUNT CODE: NML).

2. Time Requirement: 

Varies from 15-40 minutes a day, 5-6 days per week. You can always take more rest days as needed.

If you’re a runner and want to incorporate running into this full body workout plan, I suggest completing three of the strength training workouts each week. Choose three full body workouts OR choose:

  • One Leg Day (lower body)
  • One Arm Day (upper body)
  • One Full Body Training Day

You want to strength train your major muscle groups three times per week. Add running on the other days or add a run to arm days if time allows.

3. Fitness Level:

Intermediate to advanced, with modifications offered for all fitness levels in the daily workout videos.

If you’re looking for a full body workout plan for beginners, follow our Beginner Workout Plan.

If you need to adjust this plan for pregnancy/postpartum, modifications are noted next to the daily workouts to make this fitness plan accessible for all fitness levels. If I don’t recommend a workout for pregnancy, I’ve linked an alternative, pregnancy-friendly workout.

4. Cost:

FREE! No sign up needed, this is a free workout plan.

This 2-Week Workout Challenge is for Anyone Looking to:

  • Increase strength in the upper body (specifically the arms, biceps, triceps, shoulders and chest muscles).
  • Build muscle in the lower body and leg muscles (specifically the quads, hamstrings and glutes).
  • Improve athletic and cardiovascular fitness level.
  • Burn calories, lose weight and burn fat at home.
  • Establish a solid weekly workout routine at home in just 14 days.
  • Workout around 30 minutes a day, with one to two rest days per week.

Wondering Which Workout Program To Do Next?

We recommend repeating each program 2-3 times before moving on to the next program. This allows you to challenge yourself to pick up heavier weights, perform the moves with better form, and measure progress.

  1. Strong 20 is a low impact, functional strength training program. This is the program I recommend most people start with.
  2. Stronger 25 builds off Strong 20, adding more intensity and complex moves.
  3. SplitStrong 35 is a strength-focused split training workout plan. SplitStrong is designed to build a solid base of foundational strength and support muscle growth.
  4. HIITStrong 35 is the HIIT version of SplitStrong. HIITStrong adds some additional intensity and advanced compound movements to the strength base you built in SplitStrong.
  5. MetCon 100 is a high-intensity strength and metabolic conditioning program designed to prove to you that you’re stronger than you think.
  6. Zero 30 is a no equipment, high intensity 2-week program. This bodyweight program is perfect for traveling or getting your heart rate up on-the-go.

Northern Pulse Growers Association

The Northern Pulse Growers Association is a nonprofit association representing dry pea, lentil, chickpea, lupin and fava bean growers from Montana and North Dakota (where 80-85% of pulses are grown).

The 2020–2025 Dietary Guidelines recommends adding 1.5 cups of pulses per week to your diet, or 1/2 cup serving three times a week (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services).

Pulses are also a great way to fuel and recover from workouts because they:

  • Are a great source of protein, fiber, iron and potassium
  • Help maintain a healthy body weight 
  • Reduce post-meal “crashes”
  • Reduce the risk of chronic diseases
  • Help maintain heart health

Bonus: my kids love lentils and chickpeas. And I love how easily I can add pulses to pastas, sheet pan meals, soups and salads to boost the nutritional value!
