Remember it's TWO rounds, so don't be afraid to break the reps up early into smaller sets!

For the deadlifts the DBs will start on the ground. Feet are under the hips. Heels are down. Hips and knees are bent. Hands and grip are outside of the legs. Arms are straight. Chest is up. Belly tight. Back flat! To lift the DBs drive your heels into the ground and lift your chest. Keep arms straight, chest up and belly tight as you stand all the way up at the top.

To lower - send your butt back. Keep your chest lifted and belly tight. Keep those heels down. Once the DBs go below your knees, re-bend them and bring the DBs back to the starting position under control. Only one head of each dumbbell needs to touch at the bottom!

For these Burpees start standing, facing your DBs. Place your hands on the ground. Jump or step your feet back. Get your chest and thighs to the ground. Press back up. Jump or step the feet in. Jump over the DBs to complete the rep.

For the DB hang power clean, deadlift the DBs to the "hang" position at the hips with straight arms. Hands are just outside of the legs and feet are under hips. Bend your knees and keep your heels down. Allow a slight hinge at the hips, arms straight.

Stand up hard and fast. Shrug the shoulders. Pull the elbows high as you pull yourself down. Shoot the elbows around and through FAST to allow the DBs to land on the shoulder with the elbows high. Catch in just a partial front squat with the heels down, knees out, chest up. Stand to complete the rep and then lower the weight back to the hips for the next rep.

For these squats, make sure the dumbbells are resting on your shoulders with elbows high! Keep the chest up, belly tight so you don't overextend the back.

Reach the butt back and down trying to keep the elbows and chest up as you descend. Drive the knees out and keep the heels down throughout. The bottom position should be where the butt is lower than the top of the knee. Do not collapse in this position.

Lead with your chest with elbows high and stand all the way up.

MAMA MODIFICATIONS

KB/DB Deadlift - If your pregnant and the shape of your belly is making reaching the floor difficult or if you're postpartum and managing core rehab through practice of proper posture, sub: Sumo Stance KB/DB Deadlift or elevate the DBs/KB so its not so low to the ground when you pick it up. If you are working on healing any pelvic floor dysfunction make sure you are able to breathe properly throughout the entire range of motion and that you are not bracing or bearing down.

BURPEES - Pay Attention to any coning that might be happening in the plank position of the burpee. No push up burpee, Elevated burpee, Step back/forward burpee, Air Squat + Elevated Push Up, Table Top (all fours position) + Air Squat, Ball Slams, KB Swings, Farmer/Goblet march, Glute Bridges, Sumo Deadlift High Pull

POWER/SQUAT CLEANS - The Upright Rows and Goblet Squats from the SHIFT programming is a great all around modification for this! You could also try less weight or starting from the hang. For pregnant mamas with bellies that interrupt the most efficient path of the bar, be sure to sub DBs for the bar so you are not training incorrect movement patterns.
