Natalie WesterThis week I chose the CleanEatingTeen, Natalie Wester. She wrote: “I usually do not have access to a gym so I work out at home. I LOVE using DUMBBELLS and BODYWEIGHT! My favorite types of workouts are those lasting about 45 minuets, are super challenging, specialized to gain muscular strength and tone, and incorporates bursts of HIIT of Plyometrics. I love a good sweat session, and that great feeling of afterburn. :) “

        Quick Q… on the lunges, are they alternating, and on the snatch, do we switch arms every round (so total 2 rounds right arm 2 rounds left arm?)

    2. Bonnie Pfiester

      good questions Natalie!! I’ll clarify! Lunges are alternating (left and right). You can alternate snatches for each round (left one round, the right the next round) :)
