1. Dumbbell single arm split squat to press


Perform 8 reps per leg

Assume a split squat position with your left foot forward. Hold a moderately weighted dumbbell in your right hand. Hold the dumbbell at the height of your right shoulder and brace your core as you descend into the split squat. As you return to the standing position, press the dumbbell overhead. Repeat for the recommended repetitions and then switch your standing position so that your right leg is forward and the dumbbell is in your left hand.

Trainer tip:  The heel of your back foot will not come into contact with the floor. Your weight will be on the ball of your forefoot.

2. TRX (or bodyweight resistance apparatus) bodyweight rows



Perform 10 reps

Maintain a neutral spine and good posture as you grasp the handles of the straps. Lean back slightly and push your hips forward so that your entire body is straight. Pull your upper body forward by bending your elbows. At the top position of the row, your hands should be at the level of your chest.

Trainer tip: You can make the exercise more difficult by walking your feet closer to the wall to bring your body more horizontal to the floor.


Perform 12 reps

Grasp the kettlebell by the handle with both hands while maintaining a flat back position and a tight core. You should feel tension through the back of your legs in this start position. As you slowly raise the bell from the floor, lower your torso and let the bell swing between your legs. Using the momentum created by the swing movement, stand up by thrusting your hips forward and letting the kettlebell rise to chest height. Generate momentum with each swing and be sure to maintain tight glutes and lats (upper back) in the top position.

4. Low-Incline Alternate- Arm Dumbbell Press


Perform 10 reps per arm

Lie on a bench with a slight incline (30 degrees or less). Raise both dumbbells to the top position of the bench press movement so that your arms are straight overhead. Maintain this straight arm position with one arm while you lower one dumbbell and return it to the top position. Alternate arms for the total indicated reps.

Joshua Pritchet’s Success Story: “My goal has always been to get lean and stay lean, this has always been my biggest struggle. I have a very busy life, I have an 8 month old daughter, I work night shift as an RN in a critical care unit, mom is in nursing school and on top of that I am organizing a move from Texas to Arizona to begin a rigorous anesthesia program. Its not always easy for me to stay on top of my diet and stay consistent. Through the challenge, Paige gave me all the tools and resources I needed to reach my goal and more, I feel healthy, I feel strong, and motived to keep going. The challenge is over but I am not done on my journey, I feel empowered to keep going and bettering myself. Through the challenge although I have a bit of hectic life I never lost my drive, the knowledge I gained through Paige was extraordinary and if I ever had questions she was very receptive and eager to answer them all. The biggest point I would like to say regarding this challenge is the dedication Paige puts into us and the information she provides us. It is extremely evident that she cares about us and is passionate about us reaching our goals. This challenge was one the best decisions I could have ever made for my health and fitness.”
