Joe: Yeah this is a great total body exercise and it’s going to bring you back to your cheerleading days. Jennifer: I’m a little too excited about this. Joe: So let me demonstrate and then you keep of the— so the first thing we’re going to do here is you’re going to have a pair of dumb bells better to go on the lighter side with these because it’s tough exercise so we’re going to start with the fives. We’re going to bring your feet about hip width apart bending your knees slightly and you’re going to tip forward from the hips just like so. Okay so now the weights are going to start up under your knees and you might want to move. I’m going to move over a little bit so I won’t hit you. Jennifer: Okay. Joe: So we’re going to start off the letter Y tracing it with our arms your going to bring it up, okay and back down it could be one more rep bring it up and turn your palms up a little bit toward the top and back down, good. Now we’re going to use the letter T and we’re going to make it aside just like this T and back to center so with this exercise you want to maintain a perfectly straight spine okay slightly up the knees and we’re going pin shore from the hips just great and we’re going to raise the arm for a letter Y and bring him up perfect good and back down. We’re going to do 10 reps just like this so bring him out and then you can turn him back in at the bottom. Let’s go to the T’s okay here we go. Alright so bring the arms up. Jennifer: Okay. Joe: Letter T, rotate the palms. Jennifer: This way, there you go, got it. Out. Joe: Back down and rotate them back in. Jennifer: How many sets? Joe: One or two. Jennifer: Okay. Joe: You can see it’s a higher 2 sets of 10 reps it’s a higher repetition range so it might get a little difficult. Jennifer: And again can you drop the weights if those get to heavy. Joe: You can use no weight so if you did it with no weight you just make a fist and you put your thumbs up direct to you and then do it that way come up and back down. The next exercise is called the bridge press plus okay so this one is going to be done on the ground so I’m going to lie on my back and it’s really going to target your chest your shoulders and the back of your arms. Jennifer: Okay. Joe: And also your core so what I’m going to do here is I’m first going to pop my hips up nice and high. This is going to engage the gluts core and then push the weights up in the air okay and what I’m going to do is lower raise come back down, okay so again, press the chest, the triceps bring it back down your triceps again and up. Just bring your arms straight up for the press. Jennifer: Here now back. Joe: Now you’re going to bend the elbows, elbow extension and bring it right back up good count and press.
