Overhead Dumbbell Lunge for Women
Overhead Dumbbell Lunge
- Hold a pair of dumbbells directly over your shoulders, with your arms completely straight.
- Step forward with your right leg and slowly lower your body until your front knee is bent at least 90 degrees. Pause, then push yourself to the starting position as quickly as you can. Complete the prescribed number of repetitions with your right leg, then do the same number with your left leg.
Tip Don't allow the weight to carry you forward. Instead, think about dropping your hips straight down as you step forward. Keep your abs tight and your chest up.
