Women's Health (UK) - - BEST BODY -

This is an AMRAP fin­isher – as many rounds as pos­si­ble. Com­plete the cir­cuit as many times as you can in 4 mins, then rest for 60 secs. Re­peat three times. At the end, add up your reps for your fi­nal score – if you were half­way through a round when the clock reached zero, then it’s dis­counted.


Do: 20 reps

(a) Start in a sturdy plank po­si­tion with your feet shoul­der-width apart and a dumb­bell in each hand. (b) Draw your right el­bow up to lift the weight off the floor. Keep it close to the body.

(c) Lower the weight back down and re­peat, al­ter­nat­ing sides. THRUSTER

Do: 10 reps

(a) Hold a pair of dumb­bells just above your shoul­ders and lower into a deep squat.

(b) Press the weights straight up as you push back up to stand­ing. Pause, then re­turn to the start­ing po­si­tion.


Do: 5 reps

(a) With your feet hip-width apart and a dumb­bell in each hand, bend your knees to place the weights on the floor.

(b) Jump back into a plank po­si­tion. Then do a press-up – lower your knees if nec­es­sary.

(c) Jump your feet back up to your hands and re­turn to stand­ing. Once upright, press the weights di­rectly over­head – but don’t lock out your el­bows. Hold for a sec, then lower the weights back to the start­ing po­si­tion.
