Details of Each Movement

1. Bridge Small Circles

- Draw 3 circles each side. Repeat 3 times.

- Keep hips up while drawing a small circle

- Palms down for support/balance


  • Hamstrings
  • Glutes
  • Low Abs
  • Lats
  • Hip Rotators

Mistake to Avoid:

  • - Don't let hips drop during circles.

Why This Exercise?

This is a MultiFunctional Movement that works areas that are extremely weak on most people, the hamstrings, glutes, lower abs, lats, and hip rotators.

These weaknesses when left unchecked leads to early arthritis of the hips, knees and spine, slows metabolism, and reduces confidence.  

Once you start strengthening these areas, you will walk and move with more confidence (and less fat).

2. Side Plank "Life Stretch"

- Arch body away from ground, hold for 3 seconds at top, repeat 5x

- (Advanced: do on feet instead of knees)


  • Gluteus Medius & Minimis
  • Obliques
  • Serratus
  • Lats

Mistake to Avoid:

  • Don't tense up. Relax all the other muscles including neck.

Why This Exercise?

We don't use our side muscles enough and it causes imbalance.  And when you have an imbalance in your body, it leads to imbalance in other areas of your life.

If your pecs and shoulders are weak, your lymphatics slow down and stagnate (lowering metabolism). 

Strengthen pecs and serratus muscles and watch your hip and belly fat reduce.

3. Push Up - Chest Touches

- 5 to 20x

- Keep elbows tucked in to your sides

- Don't hold breath

- (Advanced: do on toes instead)


  • Pecs
  • Serratus Anterior
  • Abs
  • Obliques

Mistake to Avoid:

- Not breathing

Why This Exercise?

This is a popular exercise because it works so well.

If your pecs and shoulders are weak, your lymphatics slow down and stagnate (lowering metabolism).  **If your shoulders are weak, you can't burn fat around the hips or waist.

Strengthen pecs and serratus muscles and watch your hip and belly fat reduce.

4. Dumbbell Front Squat

- 5 to 20x

- (Advanced: hold for a 3-count at bottom)


  • Glute Max
  • Quadriceps
  • Erector Spinae
  • Delts
  • (normalizes psoas)

Mistake to Avoid:

  • Don't go too wide in stance.

Why This Exercise?

It's a good way to strengthen several important muscles at once.

If your lower body is weak, you will get arthritis and chronic back and hip problems.

Strengthening your butt and lower body is a sure fire way to burn more fat and boost confidence.

5. Dumbbell Front Swing Kicks

- 10x each side (20 total reps)

- (Advanced: use heavier db and add more reps)


  • Anterior hips muscles
  • Stretches Hamstrings* (so important)
  • Psoas
  • Lower Abs
  • Delts
  • Traps

Mistake to Avoid:

  • Don't let arms drop down as you kick
  • Don't hold breath.

Why This Exercise?

It's a great Heart Rate Elevator (HRE). Important for metabolism boosting.

Helps to turn ON your body's fat burning switch.

If your hamstrings are weak and tight, you will have back and weight problems.

This exercise is great for accomplishing multiple things at once.

Important Notes:

  • Beginners:  Don't ever hold your breath. Breathe continuously throughout movement.
  • Advanced: Even if you've done these movements before, it's the sequence and combination that makes it special.  Make it more challenging by holding the contraction for a 3-count or adding more reps.
  • Best Time To Do: First thing in the morning before you start your day. What you do first thing is a proclamation of what's important to you. Get up 20 minutes earlier and do. When you put your body first, your relationship with others improve. 80% of how you treat others is founded by your relationship with your body. Your relationship with money improves as well-- it grows. 


  • Pushing it too hard in the beginning and not finishing 4 rounds
  • Moving too fast and not "feeling" the tension.
  • Thinking that missing a workout is failing. No. It's NOT failing until you quit. Somedays you're gonna miss--do it later that night. Even though first AM is best, do it when you can. Getting your workout done outside your normal schedule is a win, too.


  • "I'd rather you do 5 minutes every day than 3 hours once per week."
  • You're learning something new. It's gonna feel weird, unusual, uncomfortable. You're gonna make mistakes. Just like when learning anything new, you're gonna make mistakes.  It's okay. Do your best. This will pay dividends far greater than any other new thing you might try to learn!
  • You are worthy of this. You've been through much; you've survived much. Now it's time for you to get better and enjoy more.
