    A few things to know about this workout:

    • This workout is part of BuzzFeed's Get Fit Summer Challenge — four weeks worth of strength and cardio workouts designed by trainer Jessi Kneeland of ReModel Fitness, along with four weeks worth of healthy recipes customized to your caloric needs. Learn how to do the challenge here and jump into it anytime.

    • When selecting which dumbbells to start with, there's a simple rule of thumb: Choose a weight you can lift with perfect form for the number of reps prescribed plus one or two more. If you think you can do more than two additional reps with perfect form, you should go up in weight.

    • The dumbbell exercises can be done as bodyweight-only exercises if they're too challenging to do as written (or if you don't have access to weights).
