I Tried Venus Williams’ At-Home Total-Body Workout, and Sweat Was Flyin’!

Venus Williams is getting creative with her home workouts and we’re all invited along for the ride. The tennis star is taking to Instagram Live to share daily at-home workouts, filming at her own house and swapping dumbbells for household items like water jugs and champagne bottles (and YES, you’re free to pop a couple corks and toast yourself afterwards.) She released her first quick, full-body routine on March 25, and of course we tuned in, followed along, and sweated through the nine simple but effective moves. Even Williams herself was dripping by the end!
