Fitness Tip: Holiday Express Workout Part 2

Thursday, January 3, 2013

Target body part: Glutes, quads, inner thighs, upper chest, triceps, shoulders, abs

Holding a dumbbell in each hand, stand with feet together, arms by your sides. Lunge to the right, with a deadlift, lower dumbbells close to the floor in front of you. As you come back to your starting position, lift right knee toward your chest and raise dumbbells over your head into an overhead press. Keep your back straight.

Do 10-12 reps, switch sides and repeat, do three sets
