Kourt’s badass trainer, Donamatrix, is sharing the fitness routine they typically start the week with. It’s a full-body workout with dumbbells that will boost your energy and tone your entire figure. As we’ve mentioned, Kourt likes to break her session into quarters (it’s her favorite workout hack) as it helps keep her motivated throughout a tough routine. Learn the exercises for each quarter of the full-body set below.
