Learn more about this workout after the break!

Some say the best things comes in threes . . . well, in this printable workout, I say the best things come in fours! This workout is broken into four simple sections with four exercises in each section, so naturally, I’m calling it the 4×4 workout. You only need a pair of dumbbells, making this a great at-home workout, and (bonus!) it can be done in under 20 minutes. You’ll work cardio, then strength, another cardio section, and finally abs for a total-body, heart-pounding, muscle-toning workout. In less time than it takes you to watch an episode of Modern Family, you’ll do something great for you, your mind, and your body.

Happy Workout!
