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! Summer is fast approaching and that means less clothing and more of your body showing. Here is a new Home Workout of the Week for you to do that will help you shed some unwanted pounds and tone your legs, shoulders, and abdominals!
This Leg, Shoulder, and Core Workout is part of a split routine and the rest of the workouts to go along with this one will be coming in the weeks ahead. Do this workout at a minimum of once a week along with the other routines and you’ll be well on your way to a fit and toned summer body!
Note: There are a lot of plyometric moves in this routine which means high impact, jumping moves. If you are a beginner or have knee problems then I suggest you do not do any jumping and just do standard moves. For example, in the Cross Body Punch Jump Squat you would just do the punches then squat but not jump.
Hello HomeBody Training followers! It’s time for another Home Exercise of the Weekand this time I have an upper body and core combination exercise to show you called the Close Grip Pushup Mountain Climber.
This is a great exercise to work your chest, tricep, shoulder, and abdominal muscles! Also, since this move incorporates many muscle groups you will be burning more calories making this an effective fat burning exercise as well as a muscle building one.
Let’s take a look at the key points to doing the Close Grip Pushup Mountain Climber properly.
get in to the pushup position with your hands closer together than a standard pushup
make sure your hands are directly under your chest
from this position slowly lower yourself down to about an inch from the floor while keeping your elbows tucked in to your sides. Don’t let them flare out.
push back up to the start position and from here you will drive one knee up underneath you while squeezing your abdominals
return the leg to the start position and repeat with the other leg. That’s one rep.
repeat the whole movement starting with the close grip pushup then the mountain climber
make sure to keep your hips down and body as straight as you can while doing the pushup and the mountain climber
if you have trouble doing a full close grip pushup then perform the pushup from the modified knee position then go up on your toes to do the mountain climber
as with all exercises make sure you engage your core throughout the movement
There you have the Close Grip Pushup Mountain Climber! It will be tough and some of you may dislike this one but it is very effective in strengthening and toning the upper body especially the triceps and the core.
