BB Single Leg Deadlift
Stand with feet shoulder-width apart. With your arms fully extended toward the ground, grab the barbell. Your hands should be shoulder-width apart with palms facing your thighs. Lift one foot off the ground to bring it behind you. Bend the knee of your other leg. Push your hips backward, bending at the waist to lower your torso toward the ground as your rear leg lifts up. Go only as low as you can without your lower back rounding. Squeeze your glutes to return to the starting position.
Chest Supported Row
Set the bench at a 45 degrees incline. With your dumbbells, lay on your chest on the bench. Let your arms hang down with palms facing each other. Bring the dumbbells to your ribs while squeezing your shoulder blades together and driving your elbows toward the ceiling. Slowly lower the dumbbells for one rep.
Lie on your back and contract your abs, pulling your belly button towards the floor. Extend your arms and legs straight out. Raise your head, arms and shoulders and legs off the ground. Remember to keep your lower back touching the floor. Find the lowest position you can hold your arms and legs without arching your lower back. Hold for 20-30 seconds.
