Star Jumpers

20 Star Jumpers

Start standing in a wide stance position with legs slightly wider than shoulder-width apart. Touch the ground with both hands, then jump up and extend your arms toward the sky. Drop down to touch the ground and repeat the exercise 20 times.

Renegade Rows

10 Renegade Rows

Start on the floor in a plank position with feet wide and hands gripping two dumbbells, shoulder-width apart. Use the handles of the dumbbells to support your upper body. Row with one dumbbell, then the other, finishing the set with a push-up. Repeat the exercise rowing with each dumbbell, and then performing a push-up until you have completed a total of 10 reps.

G-Tip: This is a challenging exercise, so start with a light weight or no weight at all if you are a beginner. Placing your feet in a wide stance will also help with stability. Feel free to remove the push-up from the exercise and just perform the rows for another variation!

Flutter Kicks

30 Flutter Kicks

Start by lying on your back with your arms under your glutes with your palms down. Extend your legs fully out with a slight bend in your knees. Lift your heels about 6 inches off the floor. Make small, rapid up and down scissor-like motions with your legs. The key is to have your core engaged throughout the entire exercise.

Combo Side Lateral Raise Superset with a Biceps Curl

10 Combo Side Lateral Raise Superset with a Biceps Curl

Start standing with your feet slightly wider than shoulder-width apart. Holding a dumbbell in each hand with your palms facing your body, extend your arms directly out to the sides of your body until your arms are parallel to the ground. Return back to the starting position, then rotate your hands so your palms are facing up and perform a biceps curl, bringing the dumbbells up toward your chest, then lowering back down. Repeat this combo move 10 times.

Kettlebell (Goblet) Squats

15 Kettlebell (Goblet) Squats

Start standing in a wide stance position with your legs slightly wider than shoulder-width apart. Holding a dumbbell or kettlebell in between your legs, perform a squat pushing your glutes back as if you are going to sit into a chair, then rise back up to the starting standing position. Repeat the exercise 15 times.
