 Screen Shot 2014-09-02 at 12.22.18 AM

Check out a short video of basic dumbbell exercises. I performed these in a tiny  hotel gym! They are easy and don’t require much space or equipment!

1) Bent-Over Single Arm Row

-Flat back-> core engaged
-Neutral spine: neck inline with spine
-Squeeze your shoulder blade in as you row up
-Maintain control and don’t jerk the weight up, use your strength not momentum

2) Goblet Squat

-Maintain weight in your heels as you sit back into your squat leading with your hips
-Keep those elbows high away from your body
-Core tight and chest up not letting that dumbbell collapse you down
-Drive your knees out as you come up and SQUEEZE those glutes at the top
