4-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 5-15 pounds. Remember muscle growth happens with lifting heavy weights.

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).

Kettlebell. You can always perform the kettlebell workouts using a single dumbbell.

Foam Roller. A great way to release sore muscles post workout or to use on active recovery days.

2. Time Requirement: 

About 30 minutes a day, 5 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 just want to make sure you are strength training your major muscle groups three times per week. Add running on the other days or add a run to arm days if time allows. You also have the option to follow our 2-Week Strength Training + Running Workout Plan.

3. Fitness Level:

Intermediate-to-Advanced, with modifications offered for all fitness levels. If you’re a fitness beginner try starting with one of our 30-Day Beginner Workout Plans.  

This full body workout plan is made of full body, compound exercises that will challenge every major muscle group in your body. But each training session offers scalable modifications for all fitness levels.

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 4-Week Workout Plan.

This 4-Week Workout Plan is for Anyone Looking To:

  • Increase Strength and Build Lean Muscle
  • Burn Calories and Lose Weight
  • Create a Consistent Fitness Routine At Home (that you look forward to daily)

  1. I’ve been strength training for 40 years.I am not an elite athlete; I’ve just been active all my life. My workouts were getting a bit stale. I stumbled on your website & have thoroughly enjoyed working out with you in the past 3 weeks. I appreciate your candor & humor. Your workouts are well thought out. I enjoy the variety and the modifications you offer. You and Rachel do all the work; Ijust start the video and follow along. Thanks for your hard work.

    • Carol! I’m so glad you stumbled over here and are putting my workouts + workout plans to good use! And yes, that’s the goal, is that we take the guesswork out of it for you so all you have to do is hit play! Keep up the awesome work! -Lindsey

  2. I can’t find where you talk about preworkout, I was looking to try it out. Absolutely love your workout style btw, I’ve tried a lot of others and they just didn’t help me accomplish what I wanted and sometimes I even hurt myself. Thanks for being you!

    • Hi Katherine! I’m so glad you are loving the workouts and feeling accomplished! Keep up the great work; you’re going to rock this challenge! Regarding the pre-workout that was an older video and we’ve since updated the content, but I personally don’t really use a pre-workout anymore. And total transparency in my opinion, I don’t think pre-workouts are necessary. But if there’s something specific you’re looking for let me know and I’ll do my best to point you in the right direction. -Lindsey
