Dumbbell getup and go

(Beth Bischoff)

Strengthen your shoulders, back, core, and lower body with this fast routine.

Trainer: Idalis Velazquez, a Miami-based personal trainer and founder of I.V. Fitness.

Benefit: Turkish getups recruit many of the upper-body muscles most exercises neglect, Velazquez says. Combine them with the other four movements in this workout, and you’ve got a total-body scorcher that will sculpt and strengthen your back, shoulders, arms, core, and lower body.

Directions:

Do the following exercises in the order shown:

  1. Clean and rotational press, 5 reps on each side

  2. Turkish getup, 8 reps on each side

  3. Plank with drag, 5 reps on each side

  4. Plyo lunge, 10 reps on each side

  5. Single arm bent over row, 10 reps on each side

Rest 60 seconds. That’s 1 round.

Do 5 total rounds.
