EQUIPMENT


The links below are NOT affiliate links, just brands I've used before and trust. There are likely cheaper options, so do whatever works for you!

DUMBBELLS: 

Any brand will do, just search "rubber coated hex dumbbell" on Google or Amazon if you want to see all your options. The neoprene kind are totally fine, too, I just don't prefer the way the grip feels personally.

I recommend investing in two different weights. If you are new to strength training I'd try a pair of 5s and 8s, or if you have experience with lifting weights you could go for 8s and 10s or 12s. Remember that your purse (or baby) likely weighs a good amount, and we don't really get stronger or "toned" by lifting either of those up all day long!

Here are two brands I like:

CAP
SPRI

LONG BAND:

You can try a long band with handles or you can try a Theraband where you hold the ends wrapped around your hands instead of handles. Either way is great! You'll see I use a Theraband in some of the videos because it's what I had! I tend to think the Theraband is more versatile.

SHORT LOOP BAND:

You'll use these bands mostly for the Core & Glutes workouts. Putting them around your thighs helps to engage the glutes! Here are some fantastic options:
