Dumbbell alternating snatches: Keep your core engaged and back straight throughout this exercise.
Shoulder press jumping jacks: Point your toes slightly outwards to help you avoid having your knees collapse inward (which can lead to injury!). Start with bodyweight only if holding a dumbbell is too challenging.
Dumbbell alternating punches: Pretend like you’re sitting back into a chair when squatting and keep the dumbbells at shoulder height for better shoulder activation.
Kettlebell swings: Keep your back flat and your core engaged! Focus on hinging from the hips and squeezing your glutes at the top of the move. You should not be using your arms to swing the weight – the momentum should come from you pushing your hips forward and engaging your glutes.
