Warm-up - Take a shoulder width stance and perform 10 air squats followed by 10 arm circles in both directions. Repeat for a total time of at least 2 to 4 minutes. This will get your core temp up and loosen up all your major joints.
Single arm Dumbbell Squat to Press - using a light to mod weight (in this demo I have 10lb) take that same shoulder width stance and place the dumbbell such your fingers face inward. Drop into your squat maintaining good core activation, neutral spine, and knee/toe tracking. As you stand up be sure to lock out at the top and then perform the press over head turning your palm facing outward. Retract to start. 3 sets of 10 presses on each arm(lotsasquats)
Reverse Dumbbell Alternating Lunges - Take a healthy step backward maintaining an upright posture, drop down into lunge stance maintaining good alignment in the lower forward leg. Push down hard with the forward leg and return to standing. Repeat with the other side.
3 sets of 8-10 per leg
Swiss Ball Hand Walkouts - Start kneeling with the ball at your chest. Slowly, rock forward until both your hands and feet touch the floor. Begin pulling yourself forward over the ball with your hands. Keep strong activation in your core, don’t droop in the middle, and walk backward until your toes touch. No launching! 3 sets of 10
Dumbbell Chest Flys on Swiss Ball - From a seated position with the dumbbells in hand. Slowly walk your feet outward until your head and shoulders are on the ball. Your hips should be off and your glutes squeezing so that you are in a ‘tabletop’ like position. Press the weights over your chest, palms facing. Slowly lower the weights with a slight elbow bend until your arms reach all the way outward. Can also be performed one arm at a time for extra glute/core work. 3 sets of 10
Reverse Dumbbell Fly on Swiss Ball - Place the weights on the floor in front of the ball. Anchor your feet flat on a wall behind you and push your body up over the ball. From this elevated position grab hold of the weights and raise your arms out, squeezing your shoulder blades together. 3 sets of 10
Upper Body Russian Twist - Holding onto on dumbbell walk your feet out as you did for the chest flys. Hold on to the ends of the weight and press over your chest. Keep a strong contraction in your glutes and rotate your upper body to the left and right sides alternating.
3 sets of 10 each direction.
