Lift only the lower part of your arm. Coming up slowly. Two counts up and down for two counts. Make sure that you are working with full range of motion so bring your hands all the way up to your shoulders and all the way down.

We’re building those sexy shoulders, toning & firming. Last one. Turn your toes out and come down into a sumo squat. Make sure your knees are pointing in the same direction as your toes. You are still sitting your
hips back as this is still a squat. Come down as low as you can so that

elbows in line with your head and point the elbows up to the ceiling. Lower your
hands down behind your back remembering to make sure that your ribs and your
stomach are in and your pelvis tucked forward so that your lower back is
straight. So all of the work is being done in your triceps. This is the muscle at the back of your upper arm. Going to single counts of course keep it slow if you need to. Here we go keep to tempo making sure that you’re not arching your back relax the shoulders and keep your elbows pointing
up. Now down for one count and up for three. Down up up up Down. Keep going. Control each
movement. Reverse the count so down for 3 and up in 1. You’ve got it three more Last one at this tempo and then we back
to those singles. Don’t let those weights take control of

sure your feet are absolutely parallel As you come down into your lunge your
back knee needs to point down towards the floor. So we’re just going to go to tempo for now. Now come down and pulse for 3 and up. We’ve got four of these this is number
two. Now when we come into singles we’re going to actually do a shoulder press so
bring your weights up to the shoulders push up as you come down now of course
this is optional so only do this if you’ve got your balance and you’re
feeling confident in this movement all right we’re going to come back into
the pulses so leave the arms and again three more two more now if you want to
do those shoulder presses get the weights ready as we come up to single
Let’s go and push it up and back down so push them directly over your head or
maybe slightly further forward so that the weights are in your peripheral
vision All right we’re going to finish strong with our pulses down down down
and up down down down and up right two more of these and then this leg is
finished. Awesome all right shake it all out and get ready for the other side now
remember the first time we do the singles we’re not using the arms so just
have your hands down by your sides. Let’s start with singles remember to point your back knee towards the ground don’t let your front knee go past your
toe so you want to make sure you protect your knees. Let’s pulse three two one….stand up.
Three two one and up. You’ve got two more like this and then get
those hands ready from your shoulder press if you do them there we go and a
single counts down push up great job Four more. Get ready to pulse down again no arms
and down, down and down. You are nearly there. Two more. Get ready with your arms for singles. Here we go. Reach it up.
You’re doing great. You are strong. Keep going this is not the time to stop we
are nearly done with this workout so keep pushing through. Alright, pulse it down this is the last ending of your set maybe there are only two more
two going and here is your last one amazing right we’re going to come into
some ABS so place one weight down onto the ground we’re only going to use one
and bring your legs out into a half sumo squat. Twist your shoulders now the thing to be focused on here is not letting your knees wobble. To add a little bit of extra work
you can take your twists moving down into a sumo squats and moving back up so
pull your belly button into your spine and try and contract your ribs
around your body as well so that you’re really getting into your abs it’s
working the obliques the transversus abdominus and just pretty much your
whole core here so keep going relax the shoulders and instead of just moving the
weight side to side with your hands make sure your shoulders are actually moving
so you are twisting in the torso. We are nearly done. I seriously suggest that you carry on with this exercise for longer; but for now we need
to move on to the next exercise so working the glutes step onto your right
leg and pulse your left leg to the back now if you need to hold on to a chair or
something close by please feel free to do that we are working our balance here
as well as our glutes so as you pulse your leg up towards the back make sure that
you are not actually arching your back or trying to lift your leg so high that you need to tilt your pelvis backwards. You want to pulse your leg just high enough that you glute is doing all the work. Right, other side. Hold in your tummy find your balance and pulse it up. The great thing is that that leg you standing on is also doing a lot of work
just by supporting you. Keep going this is our last exercise.
I know it’s burning keep going And nearly done. Almost there don’t stop go right to the
end and well done guys I hope you loved that workout and to make sure that you
do not get any stiffness tomorrow make sure you drink lots of water that you
