Kettlebell Goblet Squats
Start standing with your feet slightly wider than shoulders width distance apart and holding a kettlebell in both hands, in between your legs. Drop down into a squat, pushing your glutes back and keeping your chest lifted. Drive back up to the starting position, using your heels to press back up. Repeat movement 15x.
Kettlebell Upright Rows
Start standing with your feet slightly wider than shoulders width distance apart and holding a kettle bell in both hands, in between your legs. Lift the kettlebell up towards your forehead, keeping your elbows pointed out towards opposite sides. Once kettlebell is about at eye level, drop the kettle bell back down to the starting position and repeat 15x.
Push ups with 2 second hold at the bottom
Start in the top of a push up position. Drop down into a push up, hold at the bottom for about 2 seconds then press yourself back up to the start of the push up. Repeat the movement 10x.
Wide stance Push up with shoulder tap
Start in the top of a push up position with your feet spread out slightly wider than shoulders width distance, for stability. Drop down into a push up then back up to the start of the push up. Tap your right arm to left elbow then drop down into the bottom of the push up and repeat this time tapping left hand to left elbow. Repeat until you have completed 5 shoulder taps on each side and a total of 10 push ups.
Side plank knee to elbow
Start in a side plank position, balancing on one hand and with feet touching. Start by raising your top foot up towards the sky until it is parallel to the ground and top arm over top your head. While keeping a tight core, bring your knee and elbow in to touch then back out, repeating 5x, slow on steady, before moving to the other side.
* This is definitely a more challenging exercise and takes quite a bit of core stability and balance. If you need to start on your forearm or with lower leg on the ground, that is a perfect place to start and learn the movement.
Crossover stationary lunge
Start standing with hands on hips and weight in one foot. Use your non grounded foot to step across your body and drop down into the bottom of a lunge. Bring your leg back to the starting position and repeat on the same side until you have completed 10 crossover lunges. Repeat on other side.
