Take a deep breath up, exhale down, grab your weights. So we are going to start with the feet, rooted firmly into the earth, knees are a little bit bent, and that belly is in, and it is nice and tight. I am going to start with working the shoulders. Here we go, here we go.
Now notice, my elbows are a little bit soft. I can see the weight on my peripheral vision, exhaling on the exertion. I am going to bug you about that all day. Exhale on the exertion, eight more. How is your posture? Yeah, you lift it up to the chest, two more. Good, turn out to second position, down and up. Let the weight of those weights, kind of hold you down and add a little extra resistance.
Now you will - I don't care how well you go. I just want to make sure that you are feeling it in your quadriceps and your buttocks, not your knees. If you are feeling it in your knees, you'll probably don't have your legs wide enough.
Good, four more. Good, back to the arms. Now I am going to show you some variations on this. You can even stay with me here, or do what I am doing over my shoulder. You decide where you are, okay? Eight more. It is so important to put muscle on your body. Raising up your metabolism a little bit, lower body, here we go.

You are alright with that? At any point if you need to go out and drink water, go ahead and do so, but then come right back with me, okay? Belly in, good. Don't jab the chin forward. None of that, four, so strong, so strong in those arms. Lower body, go. I like it. We are so fortunate we get to exercise, folks. Show me four more.
