Use Your Heavy Dumbbell for this!!!

Get Up + Press
Use a bench and lie all the way down making sure your feet are still planted firmly on the ground. Keep dumbbells locked and squeezed into the anterior part of your deltoids. Palms should be facing one another. Use the momentum of a rocking motion, drive through the abs, till your back to a standing position. Once standing drive through your legs and press the dumbbells over head to a full locked out shoulder press position. Sit Back down on the bench and repeat the move again till time goes off.

DB 2x Cross Body Mt Climbers + 1 Jump Squat
Place hands on both sides of the dumbbell. Jump out to a plank and drive opposite knee to opposite armpit for 2 reps. Jump your feet to the outsides of your hands, dumbbell should be directly underneath you. Keeping a flat back, in a low squat position, grab the dumbbell and perform 1 jump squat. Once you land jump feet right back out and repeat the sequence. 

DB Swing
Yes this can be done with a dumbbell instead of a kettle bell. Just grab one side of the head and swing. Thrust through hips.

Workout Of the Week - "PT Pyramid"

Hello HEAT familia! Dr. Maria here with your workout of the week. This workout is a little throwback to my military days. You'll love the simplicity of this workout, but you'll hate how much it will hurt!! Enjoy :)


How to: 
This workout consists of 3 exercises: Pull-ups x1, Push-ups x2, Sit-ups x3. 

Finish the pyramid all the way up and down. For every number on the pyramid you do the corresponding number of reps of each exercise. Example: round 1: 1 pull-up, 2 push-ups, 3 sit-ups; round 2: 2 pull-ups, 4 push-ups, 6 sit-ups. All the way up to 6.

Make notes on how fast and how many rounds you are able to do without a significant break. If you make it all the way up the pyramid, you start taking it down the pyramid.

Warm-up: Make sure you get a good warm-up in before this workout. A little 5 min run followed by some inchworms, plank swimmers, shoulder rotations, and downdogs should do the trick.
