Wow… it sounds interesting for me and especially for those who love lifting dumbbells at home. Instead, just sit in the front of your TV and suck your cola, maybe this challenge a bit better for you, at least for your body and health.
For the training menu, I think it was well prepared. There are many exercises that you can do to create a beautiful and athletic body; starting from your feet to your back. Some examples of training they provide include:
Start: Adjust your bench at a 30-45-degree decline. Lie down on the bench while holding a pair of dumbbells. Position yourself in a comfortable position and carefully lift your dumbbells into position above your chest while palms facing each other.
Execution: Lift the dumbbells at full extension. Pause briefly and then lower the weight out to your sides until you feel a strong stretch in your chest or at position where your upper arms are parallel to the floor.
Start: Lie down on a flat bench, grasp and lift the bar above your chest. For your safety and comfort, please make sure your feet flat on the floor and keep your glutes, shoulders and head keep contact with the bench all the times.
Execution: Lower the bar until your elbow touches the both sides of the bench. Pause briefly and smoothly lift the bar to full arm extension above your chest. Repeat these moves for a few times.
Incline Bench Press
Start: Adjust a bench at a 30-45-degree decline. Grasp the bar, un-rack it and hold it above your face. For your balance, please make sure your feet flat, spread on the floor and your back steadily against the bench.

In terms of nutrients, you will also get some guidelines. Some examples of tips about nutrition that they share, such as:
