Squat and pull pressSquat and pull press

Bend your knees and squat downwards with a dumbbell hanging to your front, holding it with an overhand grip. As you rise and straighten your legs, pull the dumbbell upwards, rotating the weight overhead and extending into an overhead shoulder press. Repeat with the other arm.

Rear and delt rowsRear and delt rows

Place your knee and arm on a bench for support. Hold a dumbbell in the opposite hand with an overhand grip, with your arm extended towards the floor and palm facing backwards. Flex your arm and row the weight upwards until your upper arm is parallel to the floor and in line with your shoulder, with your elbow bent at a 90 -degree angle. Ensure that your palm still faces backwards at the top of the movement.

 in your hand, palm facing inwards. Place the other
hand on your hip with 
a slight bend in your elbow, 
lift the dumbbell to your side. Pause and return to the starting position and repeat for the required reps.
