I’m sharing a full body St Patrick’s Day workout in honor of the Irish holiday.
Are you celebrating St Patrick’s Day on Friday? I may be planning to have some corned beef and cabbage. I’m puppysitting my boyfriend’s bulldog on Saturday night. While I wish my boyfriend was going to be with us, I’m also looking forward to some quality one on one dog time. I can’t get enough of those slobbery dog kisses and snuggles. It won’t be a very exciting weekend, but you need a low key weekend sometimes.
If you’re looking for a pair or two of dumbbells to use with this workout, I like these ones (affiliate link). This yoga mat (affiliate link) is also a favorite of mine for exercises that are done on the floor like crunches or push ups.
Perform 12 reps x 3 sets of each exercise. Rest for 2 minutes between each set. While I know it can feel like too much rest, you’ll want to wait the full two minutes between sets to maintain correct form. I know that when I get too tired my form starts to go. It’s not worth getting hurt! I typically use a lighter dumbbell for upper body exercises and a heavier one for lower body.
- Bench press
- Alternating dumbbell lunges
- Push ups
- Dumbbell squat
- Overhead press
- Dumbbell step up

As always, check with your doctor before beginning to workout. Honor your body and modify the workout for you.
