|Tips & Strategy|
The goal for this workout is to push yourself not just physically, but mentally as well! It’s easy to take things easy and once you start to get tired let off the gas a little bit. The built in rest is designed to help you cool off for a quick sec between each round so you can continue to bring the heat every time!

If you have different dumbbell weights available, I’d recommend picking weights that you can go unbroken with for the piston rows and squat cleans. If it’s so heavy that you have to break them up, it’ll drastically take away from your ability to get your heart rate up.

3-2-1-GO! Start the piston rows while really focusing on squeezing your sides when you bring the dumbbell up, and keeping the elbows close to the body. It’s easy to over use the arms here, and not engage your big lat muscles in your back. V-ups are tough so if you struggle to touch your feet, reach for your shins or knee while still getting your back off the floor. Then for the squat cleans, DO NOT let your back round or chest become level with your hips. Lower the dumbbells by pushing the but back first, and then once the dumbbells get below the knee, bend the knees slightly. You should end up in a mix between a squat and a hinge (bending over) type position like I demonstrate in the video.

Leave any questions you may have and I’ll get back to you right away. Thanks for watching!
