Take 10 Minutes to find a heavy set of 8 reps on the Dumbbell Press
Including warm-ups, perform 4-6 total sets of the DB press finding a load that challenges you but remains symmetrical. Try to perform about 3 sets of your top weight across. Rest as needed between attempts.

Row 20 Calories
10 or 20 Push-Ups
Gauge intensity on how you feel. If you’re feeling great drop the hammer on this workout, if you’re smoked from last week take it easier and work at a moderate pace.
