Begin this workout with the Rainbow Press. Hold the dumbbells in each hand over one shoulder, bring the dumbbells over your head and to the other shoulder as if your making a rainbow with your arms. Perform the same thing but now start from the shoulder your currently at. This is one rep.
For the next exercise, stand with your legs shoulder width apart, while holding a dumbbell in each hand. Slowly move your arms back and forth, as if you are running, while keeping your legs stationary. Keep your abdominal muscles tight and remember to breath. This exercise will start targeting the shoulders and abs.
Grab a set of dumbbells, bend your torso and bring your elbows up. Exhale as you kick your arms back and then slowly return to the starting position.
Start in a lunge position while holding a dumbbell in each hand. Hug both dumbbells into your chest with your palms facing inward. From here, extend your left arm in front of you in a punching motion and then bring it back in toward your body. Next, extend your right arm in front of you in a punching motion and then bring it back in toward your body.
Spiderman Push ups
Start with the standard push-up stance. As you do a normal push-up, lift on leg off the floor, swing it to the right side, bending the knee. Try to touch the elbow with the knee or as close as possible. Reverse the motion then push upwards to first position. The key here is to keep the core and butt tight.
Bent Over Row
Start with both feet shoulder-width apart. Bend the knees while hinging the upper body from the hips. The butt has to be way behind. Hands must be straight under shoulders. Bend the elbows back while lifting the dumbbell towards the sides of the chest. Slowly lower the weights back to starting position. Rinse and repeat.
