Quick Dumbbell Complex ... Get back in shape with me.

in #health3 years ago


Y'all ... I got out of shape this year due to some health issues. I'm fighting my way back. I was very frustrated with my lack of endurance, and so I decided to try and combine strength and cardio and fell IN LOVE with dumbbell complexes. They're quick, they're easy, and they pack a hell of a punch.

For this series I did two compound exercises. 10 reps of each back to back, one minute of rest and then repeated as a circuit 3 times. Some days I do up to 5 rounds. Good luck!

Use lighter weight than you think you need! You'll be doing 3-5 rounds of this!

1st exercise- Burpee to Curl:

  1. With dumbbells in hand, squat down and bring dumbbells to floor
  2. Jump to plank
  3. Jump back to squat
  4. Stand
  5. Curl weight
  6. Bring arms back down to sides
  7. Repeat

Exercise Two- Squat to press

  1. Bring dumbbells to shoulders
  2. Squat, an honest ass-to-grass squat
  3. Explode up
  4. At top of squat, use momentum to also press weight overhead. Do this seamlessly, not as two movements.
  5. Repeat

So that's what I did today! Join me next week for another complex!
