Squat down and bend your knees about 90 degrees while keeping your abs tight and your body weight in the heels and don’t let the knees move past the toes. Stand up and push powerfully through the heels while extending the arms and bring the weights together above your head. Hold for one count then repeat. 44 | March 2018

Squat as in the previous workout, but jump as explosively as possible when rising. Resume the original position then repeat. 3 PLANK The plank primarily targets the chest, shoulders, and core. Start the workout in a plank position with your forearms on the ground and the elbows under your shoulders with the legs extended behind you, abs tight, and forming a single long line from the crown of your head to your heels. Hold the position for one minute while keeping your hips neutral and abs engaged. 4 LUNGING BENT-OVER ROW The lunging bent-over row targets the glutes, back, calves, hamstrings, and quads. Stand with your feet hip-width apart, with your arms at the sides and holding the weight in your right hand. Use your left foot to lunge forwards and bend your left knee about 90 degrees while keeping your knee aligned with your ankle. Lean forward and rest your left hand on your thigh with your right arm extended near the shin and the palm facing your body. From here, draw up your elbow towards the sky and keep your arm close to the side. Hold for one count and then lower, repeat, and hold the lunge position.
