Curl both arms up and lift the dumbbells toward your shoulders. Remember to keep your upper arms and torso still as you curl.

JNL Fit Tip: Avoid swinging the weight up and do not lean back or forward as you lower the weights.

2. Dead Lifts

Bend forward at your hips and slowly lower the dumbbells in front of you until the weights touch the floor. Keep your back straight and raise your upper body and weights to the starting position.

3. Dips

Make sure your shoulders are back and down with your chest out, allowing proper alignment of your spine. Gently bring your feet out in front of you. Lower down, focusing on contracting your triceps, and the entire back of your upper arms. Hold at the bottom for a small pause, and then bring it back up, squeezing your triceps as you bring yourself back to the starting position. Repeat.

JNL Fit Tip: Don’t let your elbows flare out and keep them in and pointed straight up.

4. Dumbbell Squats

Hold your abs in tight, shoulders are up and back and your chest is out. Slightly arch your lower back, sticking your glutes out in a natural manner. Keep your knees slightly bent. Gently lower down into a squatting position keeping your spine in neutral alignment and your chest up.

5. Floor Crunches

Start by pushing your lower back down and begin to roll your shoulders up, keeping your knees and hips stationary. Continue to push down as hard as you can with your lower back. The range of motion of this exercise is very limited and your shoulders should only come off the ground a few inches. Hold this position and flex your abs as hard as you can for a count of one and then slowly lower your shoulders to the ground; never stop pushing down with your lower back.

JNL Fit Tip: Make it fun, sustainable, something to do consistently, set up a home gym, link pleasure with working out, and don’t associate it with pain! 80% is nutrition as abs are made in the kitchen!
