Crunch & Tricep Extention: Begin in a seated position with your knees bent and a single dumbbell held in both hands, arms extended straight in front of you. Lean back and lower your upper body toward the floor, keeping your arms straight. When you reach the floor, lower the dumbbell to the ground by extending your arms over your head. Slowly curl back up to the start position. Repeat.
Plank & Row: Start in a straight arm plank position with a dumbbell in each hand. Keeping your core tight and your arm close to your body, bring the right hand dumbbell up toward your ribs then return it to the floor. Repeat on the left side. Alternate in this way for the duration of the interval.
Low Bicep Curl: Stand up straight with a slight bend in your knees. Hold one dumbbell in both hands, palms facing up and your elbows close to your sides. Curl the dumbbell toward your chest and then slowly lower it back down. Repeat.
Tricep Push Up Flow: Begin in knee push up position with your hands shoulder width apart. Keeping your arms close to your sides, lower your body toward the floor. Push back up and move into child’s pose by bringing your butt back toward your heels and your forehead toward the floor. Return to start position and repeat.
High Bicep Curl: Stand up straight with a slight bend in your knees. Hold one dumbbell in both hands, arms extended in front of you at shoulder height. Curl the dumbbell toward your face and then slowly return it to start position.
