Lateral Lunges with Dumbbell Curls
Stand tall with feet hip-distance apart, toes pointed forward, back straight, and weights in each hand, palms facing body.
INHALE: Take a big step to the left, bending left knee and shifting hips back while curling weights (palms facing each other) toward shoulders.
EXHALE: Press off left foot and lower weights back down to return to start position and complete one rep.
Complete all reps on one side and then switch.
Watch knee of bent leg during lunge. It should stay pointed forward (same direction as toes) and should not move past the line of your toes. Focus on not only bending that knee, but shifting your bodyweight and hips back.
