This move of the week can be done with or without weights. I’m demonstrating it with a light set; however, you can perform with a heavy set or none at all. Feel free to do each set with varying weight to increase the intensity as an option! The move focuses on your lower body, core, shoulders and chest. You should also feel your heart rate elevate as you go.
See below for a video demonstration:
Weights in hands, lunge your right foot forward. As you straighten up, bring your back foot off the floor and pull your knee up in front of you–at the same time, press the weights over head (palms facing each other).
Next, step that left foot back behind you in a low lunge. Push off the right foot and bring it all the way behind you into the bottom of a lunge on this side.
Continue this series using the right leg first 10 times.
After 10, lower your hands (with weights) down to the ground and prepare for a set of 10 push-ups.
After this, return to standing and do the lunging series starting with the left foot. After 10, go to the floor and do 10 push ups.
This is 1 set. Attempt 3 sets!
