1.) Cannonball press (30 seconds)

2.) High swings (30 seconds)

3.) Cannonball rows (30 seconds)

4.) Goblet squats (30 seconds)

*Consider repeating this routine as many times as you see fit

 This high-intensity style workout will surely work up a sweat. Although only four exercises are involved, these exercises when done together will give you an incredible full-body workout.

1.) Get up (3 X 20 reps each side)

2.) Leg Raise (3 X 20 reps)

3.) Twists (3 X 20 reps)

4.) Sit-ups (3 X 20 reps)

*Rest a minute in between sets

This most certainly a difficult (yet incredibly effective) ab workout. Definitely try to use light weight that you can manage at first before advancing to heavier dumbbells. Otherwise, you might end up completely fatigued by the third exercise!

1.) Walking swings

2.) Snatch lunge

3.) Figure 8 to squat to press

4.) Alternating bottoms up clean to squat

*30 seconds exercising followed by 30 seconds rest for each exercise for a 20-minute workout

With all the swinging motions involved in this workout, it is excellent for improving your balance and stability. Passing the kettlebell back and forth, in particular, is good for improving coordination.

1.) Front paused squats (40 seconds on, 20 seconds off)

2.) Suitcase row (40 seconds on, 20 seconds off)

3.) Reverse lunge (40 seconds on, 20 seconds off)

4.) Depth pushups (40 seconds on, 20 seconds off)

5.) Plank walkout (40 seconds on, 20 seconds off)

*Repeat the circuit 4-5 rounds with a minute rest in between rounds

Notice how Loz Read moves in slow yet controlled motions. Exercising this way while focusing on the muscle you are trying to work can really help to build a solid mind-muscle connection. Furthermore, doing these exercises slow and controlled can allow you to do more sets than you would be able to do with faster-paced, explosive movements.
