I Tried Venus Williams's At-Home Total-Body Workout, and Sweat Was Flying in My Living Room

Venus Williams gets creative with her home workouts and we are all invited to the ride. The tennis star takes to Instagram Live to share daily workouts at home, film in her own home, and swap dumbbells for household items like water jugs and champagne bottles. (Yes, you are free to pop a few corks and then roast yourself.) She released her first quick, full-body routine on March 25, and of course we tuned in, followed and sweated through the nine simple yet effective moves. Even Williams trickled towards the end!

Check out the full workout below and keep reading to learn how to do each exercise. And if you want to train with Williams yourself, the tennis legend strives to broadcast a workout every day at noon. ET on Instagram Live.
