Day 37/80 and these new @bowflex adjustable dumbbells are a girl’s dream when switching from arms to abs to ass! Just a twist and I’m dropping 35 to my side and pushing 20 up and down. I’m looking forward to the transformation. #obsessed#80dayobsession#beastonmode
Switched up my hip hinge day and decided to use dumbbells for my Romanian Deadlifts. I grabbed the 100s thinking that shit was gonna be easy....it wasn’t. 😐 Total ego check, using the dumbbells made me feel like I had the grip strength of a 5 year old child. 😆 My clients! I’ve been introducing this movement into many of your guys programming. Notice a couple key points! One is I have my knees slightly bent. I’m actually not a fan of straight leg deadlifts, I feel the risk of injury does not warrant doing straight legs unless it’s light weight. Secondly, notice how I’m pushing my hips WAY back and leaning forward at my HIPS. Keep your midline braced and feel for tension. If you feel tension all through your back, glutes, and hamstrings than you know your doing something right!! 💪
ALRIGHT. here’s my #workoutoftheday or part of it at least.
5 bent rows.
5 overhead press.
5 push ups.
5 lunge+single arm row(each arm). 5 lateral lunge (each side). 5 split squats/lunge pulse (each side). 6 rounds total (I’m showing you my last two and whew, was I whooped). Head over to @carrot_bowl_bonnie if you’d like to see it much more fluidly. Lol. Some notable differences between hers and mine: I’m using dumbbells, she’s using kettlebells. I forgot the split squats in the first snippet, oops. Also, she does kind of a lunge jump to switch legs, but those never agree with my knee, so I just stepped between mine-remember to always honor your body where it’s at. It’s great to have goals and push for what you want, but if you push to injury, you’ll only end up setting yourself back, so make adjustments as needed. .
Speed 2X to fit. .
Also hit some other full body circuits from my collection of #powerhouseshred workouts from the amazing @powerhousechels. So thankful for the connections I’ve made through the gram. .

QUICK WORKOUT! You can make this as easy or as difficult as you want. Increasing weight will make it more difficult. If you’re a beginner I suggest trying this out with no weight the first round, and then after the first, try it out with some light weights. CHALLENGE YOURSELF! Shoutout to ft. friend Tirzah💕
