2. Curl and press scissor jumps: 3 x 20

Begin in a deep left leg runners lunge (front leg bent at 90 degrees and back leg straight), holding a heavy dumb bell in each hand down at your side. Keeping your hips low and legs tight in the lunge, perform a bicep curl and shoulder press with the weights, then bring them back to starting position. Jump into the air switching your legs, landing in a right leg lunge. Repeat.

3. Push up position row and kickback: 3 x 15 each arm.

Being in a firm push up position, facing the ground and holding a dumb bell in one hand. Keep your abs squeezed tight and shoulder blades pinched as you pull the weight up to perform a row. Hold the weight up and pause for 3 seconds, keeping your elbow up, arm close to your body and hips squared to the ground. Then extend your arm back pulling through your tricep so the weight extends toward your hip. Slowly bring the weight back to the lifted row position and then lower the weight back down to the ground. Repeat.
