Skill Notes

  • Hammer Strikes (Goblet Squats): Hold the weight close to your chest, squat until your thighs are parallel to the ground. Alternative: Bodyweight squats if weight is too challenging.
  • Forge Walk (Walking Lunges): Keep your torso upright and take large steps, lowering until your back knee nearly touches the ground. Alternative: Static lunges if space is limited.
  • Mine Shovel (Deadlifts): Keep your back straight, hinge at the hips, and lower the dumbbells to mid-shin. Alternative: Romanian deadlifts with a lighter weight.
  • Dwarven Dash (High Knees): Run in place, lifting your knees as high as possible. Alternative: March in place for lower intensity.
