Greg Robin's Single Session Workout:

"This workout is a great option for those with limited equipment. Simple and to the point, this single DB complex can we used for fat loss, and a general conditioning workout as part of a larger strength training program. It's also just a great fall back workout to keep in your training journal for those days when you just need to mix it up! "

Workout Notes:

A1. Complete a reverse lunge with a DB held to the side of the trailing leg.

A2. Maintain a neutral spine and focus on squeezing the shoulder blades while not allowing the elbow to move past the torso.

A3. DB should be held in the oppoosite hand of the foot that remains on the ground.

A4. Initiate the push from the hips, not the knees. If overhead pressing presents issues, sub in with the DB floor press.

A5. Keep your keep off the ground with your heels close to the hamstrings. The DB will be behind the head with your hands on either end - your elbows are up. Bring your knees to your elbows while controling the lower portion.
