We're going to have some buns on fire aftertoday's workout. Our first exercise is roll back low touches. We're going to start on one leg, you're goingto roll back, stay of the upper part of your neck, you're going to explosively pop up,kick your leg back, touch your marker, roll back again. Our next exercise is single leg extension. You're going to start with your hands on theground, one knee bent, one leg behind you.
You're going to stand up, explosively go intoa Superman. Really think about bringing that back legheight and engage that. Our third exercise is slider holding backlunge. We're going to have a slider on your backleg. You're going to stay down in a low, crouchingsquat and you're just going to kick your leg back out behind you. Our fourth exercise is front, back frog hops. You're going to hold the medicine ball.
You're going to explosively jump forward,two jumps, you're going to jump on a BOSU ball, jump off, keep those jumps nice andlow to engage glutes. Our last exercise is one leg mule kicks. You're going to start on one leg, get intoa nice, low crouch and think about kicking that back leg up as high as you can. These were definitely five of my favoriteglute exercises. I guarantee, if you do this work out, youget your three to four rounds in, you will see a change.

8 Best Dumbbell Exercises Ever HIT EVERY MUSCLE
What's up guys, Jeff Cavaliere, ATHLEANX.COM. Let's take a look today at the best Dumbbellexercises that you can be doing, and we have to qualify first that these exercises werechosen because I feel like you can get the best bangfor your buck if you're going to do just a few exercises with a Dumbbell exercises. And why Dumbbellsé We love them here at ATHLEANXbecause they allow you to train like an athlete. You have that three dimensional freedom thatyou just aren't afforded with a bar, and you also have that compact space that you canbe using to train at home.
A lot of guys don't have room for a full Barbellset but they can clearly fit some Dumbbells in their house and therefore get a great workoutin. So let's take them and break them down oneby one and point out the benefits of each as we go. Alright first up is the Dumbbell Curl andPress. And yes, this is a compound exercise. Most of the exercises in this tutorial will becompound exercises. Because again, we have to get the most bangfor our buck, get that work done, get the muscles working quickly.
Well with the Dumbbell Curl and Press we havea Bicep movement and a Shoulder movement. And what's great is we actually get them toblend themselves together, a pull and a push, because of the functionof the Biceps. We know that the full function of the Biceps,to fully contract, has to include some sort of elevation or flexion here of the Shoulder. Well we get that, we get the Curl, we getto continue it right up and through into a flex Shoulder which completes the ShoulderPress. So we have antagonistic muscles that normallydon't like to work together that are actually
working together for the common good hereto create a great exercise. Next up is an exercise I like to call theCrush Grip Goblet Squat. Yes it's a Goblet Squat, we know that a Goblet Squat is a greatway to train our lower body. Everything, our Glutes, our Quads, our Hamstrings,and what's great about the Goblet Squat is it actually drops us right down into our naturalcenter of gravity. So for those people that have a difficulttime figuring out where they should be squatting or how wide their feet should be, if you attempt the Goblet Squat normally,you'll squat right into the position that's
most comfortable and biomechanically correctfor you. Beyond that, with the Crush Grip we're actuallygetting a chance to incorporate some upper body activity into what would normally bea passive movement for our upper body. If you grab a Dumbbell, on the normal GobletSquat position which is just holding underneath, you're not really doing anything activelyto hold that Dumbbell, other than supporting it with your hands.But with the Crush Grip, you're actually squeezing the Dumbbell between your hands. You're getting an activation of the Chest.You're getting an activation of the Delts.
You're getting an activation of your Traps.You're getting an activation of your Core. Everything now is working, from top to bottom. This makes a superior version of a GobletSquat, which was already a great exercise. Next up what some people call the Upper BodySquat, the Dumbbell Pullover. I've covered the Dumbbell Pullover now intwo references. One as a back exercise and one as an upperchest exercise. You know what, I don't care how you do it,it's all in the technique. Either way, this is one of the best exercisesyou can do, especially if all you've got is
