I hope you’re ready for today’s workout! In this workout I alternated 30 seconds of dumbbell exercises between each 50-second interval.
The format for this routine is a little bit different, but it is really great for your body to switch up the challenge. For the last two exercises I used a chair, but you can also use a stability ball or a bench.
Using a chair for back extensions was tricky, because technically the surface you are on should come up to the hinge area of your hip (where you bend). It is much easier to position correctly on a stability ball. I chose to use the chair in this workout because not everyone has a stability ball at home. The other option is to substitute a Superman for this move. When I create my workouts I try to think of functional alternatives to equipment that most people will have available at home.
You can complete this workout for time, or for reps. Remember, you can always modify the workout to suit your personal needs. Form is more important than speed. As you become stronger and more efficient in your movements, you will be able to increase the speed & intensity of the workout.
