How do women with small spaces, a little bit of time, and a couple dumbbells do cardio? We move weights FASTER! 😂

As many reps as possible in 15 minutes:

  • 12 Alternating DB snatch
  • 12 Pushups
  • 12 Bent over DB rows

 If snatching is new/different to you - AWESOME. Now is a great opportunity to drill the movement until you own it. Master snatching and you WILL be the baddest mamacita on the block. Promise.

Snatching is a "feel it" movement. Meaning you'll feel a fluidness of the motion as though you're not putting forth great effort to get it done. You won't feel as though you're pulling the weight, but rather the weight will just float up - all you're doing is getting it off the ground and hanging on for the ride.

Pushups. They may feel hard. They may hurt your wrists. You might hate them. My advice to you; get after it. Befriend the movements you hate the most. For instance, I hate wall walks, but do I them every so often. Now, I still hate them but at least I'm decent at them.

Bent over rows. 
My biggest plea; DON'T ROUND AT THE SHOULDERS. Fight it. Fight hunching over like the Hunched Back of Notre Dame. 

HOW TO DETERMINE YOUR SCORE

This is considered an AMRAP workout; As Many Reps As Possible - that has a 15-minute time cap.

Each time you make it through all 3 exercises it's considered a round. If I were to go through the exercises 6 times, and was able to get in 5 of the snatches before my timer went off, my score would then be 6+5. 6 rounds plus 5 additional reps.

A score of at least 7 is a good goal. Keep in mind I have here a 20lb dumbbell.
