My coworker and fellow trainer Asher at Equinox South Beach is instructing me on my first Pilates exercise. Asher has a brilliant mind and his passion for fitness is infectious. Here is more of Asher in another video he helped me film; "Dynamic Bounding with Asher" at http://youtu.be/EC6-aMnFoQE.

In this tutorial I am working on a CHEST/SHOULDERS and BACK(push/pull) Superset. I like this one because the pushing and pulling are done in a DIAGONAL path of motion instead of the common HORIZONTAL one. Making our muscles and joints move and produce force through a different direction or path. One key benefit of pushing with the landmine tool (as seen in the video) is that you will also be training Anti-Rotation. Get in a staggered stance with your shoulders and hips facing forward and don't let the force rotate you on the descent. You should feel this all through out your trunk with the proper weight. Weight should be heavy but manageable. Try it and let me know what you think. **Hopefully your gym has an Iso-Lateral High Row machine and a landmine for the pushing.

The goal of this circuit was to incorporate total body movements, using multiple muscles which in turn requires more oxygen, burning more calories. All you need is dumbbells.

Hi guys! In this tutorial we are going over a scorpion reach into single leg dive bomber push up.
A dive bomber is very underrated exercise. I use it a lot in my own training and it has numerous benefits. It might seem like a simple movement at first sight but it requires a lot of strength, control and flexibility. In this exercise you will be activating your core, your hip (of the leg that's on the ground when in single leg), your chest, triceps and shoulders. And since it's you performing this total body movement and not a machine, you will be burning more calories.
In the video I mentioned the phrase "going underneath the barb wire". This is a cue I use with my clients to make them understand how close to the ground I want them to go. I felt the dive bomber push up would go well with the scorpion reach. The scorpion reach is a great movement to open up the hips and to work on extension and rotation. Try it and have fun!
