Top Tips:

Keep transitions quick!  The push press get hard quickly, break into 2 sets if these are challenging you.  This is along workout, settle into a steady pace.

Workout Description:

Set your timer to countdown from 18 min.  Starting with the push press complete all reps and then move onto the swings finishing with your jump overs/step-ups.  We use a dumbbell to jump over and a bench to step up to (workout light). Complete as many rounds and reps as possible within 18 min and record your score on wodify.

Movements:

Dumbbell Push Press: Starting with your feet set at hip-width, elbows slightly in front of the dumbbells, dumbbells resting on shoulders. Keep your body vertical as hips and knees flex into a small dip. Stand aggressively, squeezing your bum as hips fully extend, then arms press overhead - watch for early pressing (wait until you squeeze your bum!). Heels remain down until hips and knees extend. Complete at full hip extension and arms locked out overhead (biceps beside ears!)

American Dumbbell Swings: Feet set up slightly wider than squat stance. DB comes down through the legs (high) with straight arms. The swing is a hinge, not a squat. Explode from the hips on the way up by squeezing glutes. Do NOT lean back at the top of the swing, keep abs engaged to avoid this. DB goes all the way overhead with biceps beside ears.

Russian Dumbbell Swings: This is performed the exact same as the American swing however you only bring the DB/KB up to eye level.

Jump Overs/Step-Ups: Feet start under your hips/shoulders, dip slightly and jump high brining your knees as close to your torso as you can landing softly over object. If you are stepping up to an object, fully stand at the top before you step back down.
