Hey there! It has been a while since I’ve posted a new Home Exercise of the Week but the series is back and I have a whole bunch of new exercises to show you over the next few months.
This week I have the Dumbbell Burpee Shoulder Press. This is a fantastic full body exercise that will target your quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes, core, shoulders, and triceps. You will also get a really good cardiovascular workout from this exercise! If you don’t have dumbbells that’s ok, you can use any substitute like a medicine ball, sandbag, or just put your hands up in the air.
Let’s take a look at the key points to doing the Dumbbell Burpee Shoulder Press properly.
have a pair of dumbbells (or substitute) in front of you at your feet
squat down and grab the handles of the dumbbells
from this position jump both feet back until you are in a full plank position while keeping your core flexed and tight
jump your feet back up to your hands and stand up with the dumbbells in your hands
press the weights up over your head to do the shoulder press
lower the weights back down to the floor and repeat
So there you have the Dumbbell Burpee Shoulder Press. It’s a challenging exercise that will get you sweating and your heart pumping!
I’ll be back next week with another new exercise so stay tuned and feel free to leave a comment below about how you did with the exercise or if you have any questions.
Hey everyone, I have a new Home Workout of the Week for you to try!
This Quick Tabata Workout will get your heart pumping, calories burned, and muscles pumped. As always make sure that you pay special attention to your form in order to get the best and safest results.
Tabata workouts are quick but intense. With the warm-up, you should be able to complete this workout in about 30 minutes but if you need to take longer breaks between each Tabata then that is perfectly ok. In time with consistent workouts you will build up your endurance and intensity.
Have fun and get sweating!

Tabata Protocol – 20 seconds of as many reps as you can do followed by 10 seconds of rest; 4 rounds of each pair of exercises followed by a 1 minute rest before moving on to the next pair of exercises
Hey everyone! I have a new Home Workout of the Week for you to try and this one is really going to test your endurance. I’m calling it the Giant Superset Workout!
This Giant Superset Workout has 1 round of 24 exercises that you will do one after the other with little to no rest in between each. It’s going to be tough but do the best you can and when you are finished there will be sweat (and maybe tears) but you will also have worked your entire body and the little amount of rest will add a great cardiovascular component to the workout as well.
So give this Giant Superset Workout a try and let me know how you do!
