hey everyone it’s your personal trainer coach Kozak and I’m Claudia and this is a strength training workout this is a great workout for both men and women I’m gonna do the intermediate to advanced exercises today and follow along with me for all of those beginner modifications the only equipment required for this workout is a pair of dumbbells and the weight of those dumbbells is totally dependent on your fitness level just remember it’s always best to start light and work your way up there’s no warm-up required for this workout but if you’d like to do one feel free to go ahead and start this quick five-minute warm-up otherwise let’s go let’s get right into this thing it’s a total body workout go and grab your dumbbells I’m going to do a reverse lunge plus thruster Claudia is just going to go ahead and start in a split squat stance so as I drop down I’m stepping back twisting my palms and pressing up where Claudia is already in that split stance position and she’s just dropping that back knee down and we’re all gonna do one side first and then we’ll switch halfway through halfway through you’re going to notice we’re not counting any reps today so it’s all about getting in as many reps in this allotted time period twisting up and you’re ideally finishing with your biceps and elbows up by your ears all the way up all the way down let’s go five more seconds on this first side and we’re going to switch and three two one nice okay switch it up right into a other side now it’s okay if your back knee touches well this is the ground sorry it’s okay but make sure that you’re not bouncing that back knee off of the ground trying to come down to your both knees at a 90 degree angle and then up and back up nice almost there give it five four three two one zero okay we’re going to the ground for the next one we both dumbbells we’re going to go up into an ISO hip up Claudia is going to use both legs I’m only going to need one leg popping this one up press my hips up now slight bend in the elbows doing a dumbbell pull over so yes there’s a lot going on in this one want you to drive off and stay balanced off either your heels or heel depending if you’re doing the one or two leg version give a little bend in your elbows and pull those dumbbells back using your lats and your back good feel that stretch and pull back breathe if you’re doing the one leg version once you try your best to keep your hips Square to the ground and if you are doing that one leg version time to switch opposite and back into it good and if you’re doing my version just be sure not to hyperextend that back yeah as you want to try to keep your back nice and straight straight line from your knees to your back good it’s like bending the elbows throughout squeeze in those glutes it’s more about your glutes and your abs than it is your lower back let’s go five four three two one all right we’re up on our feet for the next one keeping both dumbbells that’s ones for your posterior chain elbows are bent up at our side so I’m gonna have one leg out Chloe’s gonna use both legs a little bend in both knees alright bend over pressing our hips back hips forward so keep your back straight and you’re bending over using your hips as a hinge this is a either a one leg or a too late good morning as what it’s called at it make the name up but you should be feeling a slight stretch in the back of that leg definitely just a little bend in that knee not a not a big bend good I’m thinking to feel it on those hamstrings back there or you should feel it in the hamstrings so stretching those hammies and then on the way up want you to squeeze those glutes up at the top of the move good if you’re doing the one leg version let’s go ahead and switch into the next nice one into the next coupe gotta stay balanced there we go yeah focus your eyes on something so again it’s good for your whole posterior chain which is your hamstrings your glutes and your lower back one in the next you got it breathe let’s go five more seconds on this one that’s it almost there and three two one zero okay to the ground we go again with both dumbbells we got a combo move we’re gonna do a push-up from your up top on your feet or from your knees we’re gonna go push up row row so keep those shoulders square push up row row AB stay nice and tight you have your back straight very important keep that back straight you want to slouch or you want your butt way up in there neither one whoo this is always a good one for the core this isn’t it excellent move really hits multiple body parts at the same time I mean from your triceps shoulders chest back abs lower back I mean really brought everything get hit on this one good one of the next guys one of the next you got it that helps you go and watch if you’re using on your feet you can widen your feet just a little bit that helped you stay balanced grab in trouble good almost there let’s go ten more seconds on this one that’s it one in the next guys you got it you got it breathe and five four three two one okay good we’re turning over now we’re going to do a dumbbell fly lying dumbbell fly and you we’re going to do with your feet on the ground or we’re going to get your abs involved at the same time so I’m going to a little slight bend in my elbows stretch fly and the same time opening my legs and pulling them back together Claudia is just focusing on that fly that dumbbell fly for sure I’m just acting like I’m hugging a big old tree keep a nice bend in those elbows you feel that chest stretch and then squeeze your chest up the top being sure not to bounce your arms off the ground no change at the bottom where I’m trying to keep my legs out at a 45 degree angle opening them and closing them I’ve heard this one referred to as a Hello Dolly I did again not a name I made up what did you shoot him do it they made these names up yeah somebody’s bored you know all right you guys got to keep it going keep grinding through right here breathe go ten more seconds on this one everybody that’s it you got it you got it and five four three two one zero nice words all right we’re back up on our feet for the next one another combo move areas I’m gonna lose a dumbbell guys so she’s just using one I’m gonna use both we’re gonna go hammer curl front squat back up ain’t dumbbells down hammer curl weight back in the hips front squat back up so on that hammer curl palms are face one another only bending at the elbow joint and anytime we squat it’s going to be breaking at the hips first then bending the knees bringing those hips and thighs down to parallel to the ground good nice and controlled on that curl and I want you swing in the dumbbells up and cheating right let’s keep it nice and under control on the way up and on the way down good you got it starting to feel it now it’s all right that’s how we know it’s working legs are starting to feel it keep it up guys you’re doing great right here one wrapping to the next what do you got good total body workout today every muscles getting hit in this one nice let’s go almost there let’s go last five seconds right here come on getting getting the last five four three two one zero okay only one dumbbell needed for this next one we’re both going in a split stance I’m going to pull up on my elbow flip that dumbbell up and Claudia is just gonna pull up on the elbow so she’s not actually going to flip it straight up you two which one of these is right for you just act like someone’s pulling on that elbow pulling it straight up into the sky good and again up to you if you flip it up overhead into a snatch or you just keep it as an upright row good we’re going half and half half found each side remember to keep that core nice and tight and breathe three that’s right using a little bit of hips on this once you have hips back hips forward not a lot just a little bit keeping that back straight while you do it and Claudia’s going to use that second hand to help support herself and switch opposite side good right into it guys once you get that movement down I want you to pick up that pace remember you got push yourself because no one else is going to do it for you all right I can’t do it Claudia can’t do it it’s up to you right here let’s go it’s grind in time three one in the next everybody good elbow up and flip what you got what you got right here good let’s go ten seconds on this one that’s it last ten seconds this is easy judo all day long good let’s go five four three two one zero okay we need both dumbbells to the ground we go another combo ground we’re going tricep extension plus either a leg raise or knee raise Claudia’s just going to raise her knees where I’m going to raise my legs either way we’ll start with both elbows bent at a 90 palms face of one another you can extend at that elbow using your triceps and they neither raising your legs straight up or bring your knees in to your stomach and do your chest you can rest your feet down at the bottom if you want just give it a quick tap and back up or you can choose not to touch the ground at all keep your feet suspended and just bring it right back up so this whole workout is just about finding the right modifications for you you decide which one of these versions is for you and you go from there come back next time get a little bit better and maybe even try a step up a little harder modification on some some of these in might take you several repeats before you step up and that’s totally okay though it’s your own put out your own pace that’s right just getting a little bit better every day that’s what it’s all about so small little steps that lead to big-time long-term success let’s go ten more seconds guys almost there my hands are starting to feel it don’t let those elbows floor out keeping my straight that’s a good point I’ll slice to like the triceps three two one nice okay we’re up on our feet again both dumbbells upper body one next we’re going reverse curl elbows are in palms are facing down and then press shoulder press overhead back down repeat so we’re both doing the same move on this so to make it easier you just need to use a lighter weight and if I many of these your dumbbells just get too heavy hey pick up a couple of water bottles yep and that’ll do it for you – you got some tomato cans what do you got be resourceful all right do what you can good so on this one if you’re getting lost it’s one two three four one two three four good those knees nice and soft that’s right back stays straight don’t lock your knees out keep those elbows in on that curl don’t let them flare out right because then all of a sudden you’re taking your biceps out of the movement this one’s great for your shoulders biceps forearms lot of muscles getting hit here you got it one two the next guys one into the next let’s go ten more seconds almost there you got it you got it in five four three two one zero okay we need both dumbbells for the next one buddy’s gonna start going to split I’m gonna actually do it walking lunge I’m going to step I’m going to reach I’m going to do a lawnmower I’m going to pull back and step up all on one side Claudia’s just starting in that split stance and she’s going to drop that back knee so it’s like you’re starting a lawn mower grab that string and you think and you pull back you start that engine right here boom good functional movement great movement to actually help you in your day-to-day activities not just building pretty muscles here yes they will be pretty but they’ll also be functional wanna be functional we want to operate and perform at a high level home back boom drop that back knee so both knees get to a 90 you got it in pull hold that pulling back from your elbow when Claudia always says like you got a string attached to that elbow pull back on good and 5 4 3 2 1 switching sides now let’s go opposite pull back again once you start to get into the groove and you got a good understanding what this movement looks like feel free to pick up the pace a little bit whatever you do don’t break don’t stop this is a short workout we’re getting a lot of work in in a short period of time you got it right here you’re a machine let’s go what do you got don’t prove it to me prove it to yourself come on let’s go let’s go let’s go 10 seconds on this side nice next five four three two one is here oh good that’s the end of the first round all right so that’s the halfway mark to 20 second break in total so it’s not very long if you need some water you need a towel you just speak to God whatever that may be has a time to do it we got 10 more seconds you’re gonna get those dumbbells up get them ready here remember we’re starting with that thruster plus either reverse lunge or a split squat putting them up here at chin level three two one dropping straight down pressing straight up of a feeling these are going to be a little bit harder this second fit than they were when we refresh a few minutes ago yeah you’re really just going to need to concentrate on the movement and just take your mind out of the equation here dropping straight down under those dumbbells think about that pain and if any of these movements end up being just too much with the dumbbells that you have you’d be surprised how good of a workout you can get by either just moving your arms in the correct movement pattern or by again like we said earlier grab a couple of water bottles and doing it that way nice go five more seconds on this first side four three two one alright switching it up opposite side well we’ve been back dropping straight underneath this one’s gonna burn out those shoulders mine are too you’re not alone right there with you doing it can go at your own pace guys don’t feel like you have to keep up with us that’s right make this workout your own you’re gonna come back you’re gonna get better every time that’s it it’s all there is to it it’s that simple no secret pills no magical workout unfortunately the solution you’ve been looking for is hard work you can do it you got it in you right here let’s go I know you do come on almost there five four three two one okay to the ground we go getting in that ISO hip up position either one leg or two either way drive off that heel plus a pull over a little bend in both elbows feel that stretch and you’re back and then pull it back with those lats good try to stay balanced driving off either heel or heels using glutes nice and tight abs are tight good solid foundation you got it guys keep with it stay with it it’s all mental I know your brain can keep going about a million times longer than your body you just got to convince that brain to take over not let your body run the show switch sides a fuse in one leg good it’s all mental right here lay down with the Sun guys let’s go that’s it stick with it so on your head you versus you right here good keep that oxygen flowing don’t forget to breathe good almost there let’s go five seconds on this one three two one and we’re off okay both dumbbells on our feet we’re moving into that good morning elbows are bent 90-degree angle I’m doing one leg Claudia is doing two but remember keep that little bend in your knee and then you’re just driving your hips back it’s really like you’re trying to touch the wall behind you with your glutes and you bend over and squeeze them at the top squeeze them up at the top that’s right yeah dumbbells stay nice and tucked and elbows are tucked in core is tight back is straight you got right here let’s go come on it’s all hips on this one all hiss using those hips as a hinge one into the next good you’re doing one you can switch on to the next this is kind of a break well I guess depending on what you’re using yeah instead of bends on the way up all the bends if you’re doing one leg or now it’s a little bit of a break hopefully it’s not a break for me I got one leg haha next time she can do the advanced all right guys come on now I’ve given plenty of opportunities you guys going greed good let’s go five more seconds that’s it four three two one zero all right breaks over to the ground we go we’re going push-up plus row core is tight either from your knees or up top if you start it up top last time and it’s just not going to happen this time that’s okay that doesn’t mean stop you can go to your knees no big deal maybe next time you can do the whole thing from up top again making it your own guys getting a little bit better every time and breathe
