Deadlifts – 30 seconds
Now this is where you start to improvise! Grab two shopping bags and load them up with whatever is on hand. Try grabbing a couple of 1-2L bottles. Make sure you keep the contents of each bag even so they both weigh the same.

Start with the bags by your side, feet slightly wider than shoulder-width apart, knees slightly bent.

Bend your knees and grab the handles of the bags with your palms facing towards your body. Make sure to keep your chest up, back flat and eyes looking straight ahead.

Again, use the mirror to monitor your posture. Now, stand up until your legs are straight – but don’t lock your knees, always keep a slight bend in them – and keep your back straight. Pause at the top, then return the shopping bags to the floor and repeat.
