Welcome back to our #WorkoutoftheWeek posts! We are bringing it back to Monday, so let’s get ready for some fitness, shall we? P.S. Hope you watch the above Chuck Norris video, you’re gonna need it for this workout!
Dumbbell DT. A brutal way to exercise the shoulders, lats, triceps, and just about everything in-between. This is a brutal workout that starts with deadlifts, is followed by power cleans and ends with push jerks, all with the dual dumbbell combo.
DT itself is one of those kinds of workouts where it is better if you do it, ‘unbroken’ vs. having to break it up into smaller sets or chunks. With this workout, in particular, if you can do 11 deadlifts, drop, then do one more before going right into the hang power cleans, you’re going to save yourself time and increase efficiency. If you can do 12 DB deadlifts, 9 hang power cleans and 6 DB push jerks, then awesome! Do it unbroken and then take a break before diving into the rest of the sets.
Scaling: If need be, use lighter dumbbells, but you should almost be able to do each one of these rounds unbroken. Go for quality, not time, and lower your time the next time you complete this workout!
