Although the Hardcore Partner Weights YouTube video is just 10 minutes long, it is a real challenge due to the tempo as well as the amount of weight used.  Below is the breakdown of exercises.  Please work at your own pace and with the amount of weight that is appropriate for your level of fitness.  Advanced participants may want to increase reps, repeat the video 2 or 3 times or combine this video with another on my YouTube channel/website.  Beginners should start with less reps and weight. Gradually build up to make the workout appropriate for your fitness level as you progress. 

Hydrate, take breaks, modify exercises and lighten weights to keep form as needed.

Please stretch and warm-up at the start of all workouts and conclude with a cool-down.

Equipment options: dumbbells, ez-curl bar, or weighted bar
