The Alpha Program: Workout #6
We try to make all our workouts doable from the gym or home. This workout requires minimal equipment, just a kettlebell and a set of dumbbells. We used a 55lb kettlebell, 50lb dumbbells, and 30lb dumbbells, but use whatever weight suits you the best.
This workout was designed to strengthen your upper body and core, while keeping a high intensity to raise your heart rate and improve your cardiovascular strength due to the minimal rest in between movements.
For quality reps: no more than 10 seconds rest between movements
10 DB standing shoulder press (strict)
15 KB swings

For quality reps: No more than 10-sec rest between movements
