In the following slides, Smith outlines the best moves for all the seven-movement patterns mentioned at left, plus an extra squat variation, because everyone needs solid wheels. Perform all eight moves in order (for each week), completing all the prescribed sets and reps for one before moving on to the next.
Do this three times per week, resting a day in between each session, for four weeks. If you’re feeling up to it, pick a couple of accessory moves (see the last slide), depending on what you want to work on, to do after your workout.
1. Half-Kneeling Dumbbell Press (Vertical Push)
The Complete Beginner Lifters Guide … Steps 1
WHY DO IT: More shoulder strength, muscle mass, stability, and core stability.
DO IT: From a half-kneeling position, drive a dumbbell, held in the hand opposite of the front leg, overhead. SMITH SAYS: “The half-kneeling setup builds core stability, glute activation, and shoulder strength, while also promoting hip mobility by stretching the hip flexor on the trail leg.”
SETS x REPS:
First Week: 4 x 4 (per leg) second Week: 4 x 5 (per leg) Third Week: 4 x 6 (per leg) Fourth Week: 4 x 8 (per leg) 2. Trap-Bar Deadlift (Hip Hinge)
The Complete Beginner Lifters Guide … Steps 2
WHY DO IT: This exercise safely teaches the “hinge” movement pattern that is essential for jumping, landing, picking things up, deadlifting, and kettlebell swings. DO IT: Stand with feet hip-width apart. Grab the trap-bar handles. Drive through your heels to stand up straight and extend your hips and knees. SMITH SAYS: “Keep your knees slightly bent when sliding back into the hinge. This is key to allowing the lifter to hinge farther because it doesn’t prestretch the hamstrings and force a lot of pressure onto the lower back and the backs of the knees.” SETS x REPS: First Week: 3 x 5–8 Second Week: 3 x 8–10 Third Week: 4 x 5–8 Fourth Week: 4 x 8–10 3. Goblet Squat With Dumbbell (Squat)
The Complete Beginner Lifters Guide … Step 3
WHY DO IT: This move teaches the three most important squat cues—hips back, chest up, and knees out—and the dumbbell counterbalance allows you to stay upright and squat deeper. DO IT: Grab the head of a dumbbell with both hands and hold it like a goblet at chin level. Squat down until your elbows are against your knees, on the inside if possible. SMITH SAYS: “Once in your lowest position, drive your elbows out into your knees to create a powerful isometric hold. Relax and sink into a deeper bottom position. This is called ‘prying.’ It increases mobility in your hips.” SETS x REPS: First Week: 3 x 6–8 Second Week: 3 x 8–10 Third Week: 4 x 8–10 Fourth Week: 4 x 10–12 4. Chin-up (Vertical Pull)
The Complete Beginner Lifters Guide … Step 4
WHY DO IT: It’s the best mass builder for your upper back, says Smith. And it’s a great indicator lift for testing relative strength. DO IT: Grab a pull-up bar and hang so that your arms are straight and your feet are off the ground. Pull your chest up to the bar, then slowly lower yourself back down to the starting position. SMITH SAYS: “To build up to a greater number of pullups, simply attack them from every angle. Hit sets with extra weight; do explosive and powerful sets with fewer reps; work sets with slow eccentrics; hit sets with isometric holds at the top; hit three-to-five-rep sets many times throughout the day; Also, hit sets with iso-holds halfway down.” SETS x REPS: First Week: 3 x 3–5 Second Week: 3 x 5–8 Third Week: 4 x 3–5 Fourth Week: 4 x 5–8 5. Prone Dumbbell Row (Horizontal Pull)
The Complete Beginner Lifters Guide … Step 5
WHY DO IT: Performing prone dumbbell rows is a great way to develop upper-back strength and posterior shoulder stability. DO IT: Lie facedown on an incline bench, with a dumbbell in each hand and toes planted firmly on the ground. Squeeze your shoulder blades together and row both dumbbells to your sides, holding at the top for five to eight seconds. SMITH SAYS: “Instead of rowing straight up to your chest, try rowing the dumbbells toward your pockets. This will ensure cleaner technique and put the focus on the lats.” SETS x REPS: First Week: 3 x 6–8 Second Week: 3 x 8–10 Third Week: 4 x 8–10 Fourth Week: 4 x 10–12 6. Bear Crawl (Core)
The Complete Beginner Lifters Guide … Step 6
WHY DO IT: The bear crawl creates full-body and scapular strength and stability, which facilitates heavier lifts and optimal shoulder health for benching and military pressing movements. Even further, it “reconnects” the shoulders and the hips after the “disconnect” of sitting at a computer with poor posture all day, Smith says. DO IT: Bend down and plant your hands on the floor. Keep your knees lifted and your back flat as you walk quickly on all fours. SMITH SAYS: “When performing any bridge, plank, or crawl variation, ensure that your spine and torso remain in a straight line. This will keep your form good and not stress your lower back.” SETS x REPS: First Week: 2 x 20 sec. Second Week: 2 x 30 sec. Third Week: 2 x 35 sec. Fourth Week: 2 x 40 sec. 7. Split Squat (Squat)
The Complete Beginner Lifters Guide … Step
WHY DO IT: The split squat benefits ankle, knee, hip, and core stability, while also improving coordination and balance. DO IT: Stagger your feet about a foot or so apart. Keeping your torso upright, lower your body until your rear knee nearly touches the floor and your front thigh is parallel to the floor. SMITH SAYS: “Perform this move barefoot to help restore the arch in your foot, which is critical to your gait and ‘anchoring’ for heavier lifts.” SETS x REPS: First Week: 3 x 6 Second Week: 3 x 8 Third Week: 4 x 8 Fourth Week: 4 x 10 8. Pushup (Horizontal Push)
The Complete Beginner Lifters Guide … Step 8
WHY DO IT: “The pushup develops shoulder and shoulder blade stability and builds a big chest,” Smith says. “A hidden benefit most lifters don’t realize is that the pushup is really a moving plank, so core stability is improved as well.” DO IT: Get into a standard pushup position and lower chest until almost at the floor, then push yourself back up. SMITH SAYS: “If you’re too weak to get the reps, use an incline pushup to get the volume with good form.” SETS x REPS: First Week: 3 x 10 Second Week: 3 x 15 Third Week: 4 x 15 Fourth Week: 4 x 20 Accessory Work
“Accessory work eliminates weaknesses and helps you build more muscle mass,” Smith says. If you’re feeling like you have some gas left in the tank after doing the full-body workout, then feel free to try these on for size:
