We will go through 8-12 reps of each exercise in the video. Repeat the video 1-2 more times for a full workout.

If you are just starting out do 8 reps if you can do more aim for 16 to 20.

Pay attention to your form during this workout. Make sure you aren’t wobbly and bouncy. Extra reps are of no importance if your form is yucky.

You may notice my left arm is kinda wonky.  We were in a bad car accident and my arm isn’t all the way back to normal.  So if anything looks confusing just try to mimic my right arm!
