Skill Notes

  • Mjolnir Press (Overhead Dumbbell Press): Keep your core tight and press dumbbells from shoulder height to overhead, avoiding arching your back. Alternative: Use one dumbbell if needed.
  • Shield Wall (Push-Ups): Maintain a straight line from head to heels, lowering until elbows are at 90 degrees. Alternative: Knee push-ups for reduced intensity.
  • Axe Rows (Bent-Over Rows): Bend at the hips with a straight back, pulling the dumbbell to your hip. Alternative: Use resistance bands if dumbbells are not available.
  • Hammer Curls (Bicep Curls): Keep your elbows close to your body and curl the weights with control. Alternative: Use lighter weights or resistance bands.
