Today’s workout is a 12 minute “As Many Reps As Possible” workout.

12-Minute AMRAP:
8 L-Sit DB Press
8 Push-Ups

L-Sit DB Press
Start by sitting on the floor - weights at your shoulders in the rack position. 
Take a deep belly breath and use your braced core + exhale to press the weight directly overhead (watch my stomach as I do this in the video).

Lock out your elbows at the top before slowly lowering back to the rack position. 
Be sure to keep your ribs down as you press. 

*perform 12 reps if using less than 20lb weights

Pushups
Chest to deck while maintaining a neutral plank throughout the movement. If you haven’t gotten the strength to rep out push-ups yet, scale it by one of the following ways:

Option 1: Use a bench, chair, table, or other raised surface to put your hands on. 

Option 2: Do hand release pushups. Lower yourself to the bottom of the push-up, lift your hands from the ground, then place them back down and restart the pushing motion.

Option 3: Bring down one knee - keeping the other straight (this is the option demonstrated in the video).

Let me know your score (total rounds plus additional reps before time is up) in the comments!
