Targets: Thighs, butt, arms, back, core

Stand tall (chest lifted, abs tight, back straight) with your feet together, holding a 3 to 5 pound dumbbell in each hand, at your sides. Take a large step forward with your right foot (approximately 2 feet) and bend both of your knees, lowering your back knee towards the floor and bending your front knee no more than 90-degrees -- make sure your front knee is directly over your toes. At the same time, allow your torso to angle forward and reach the dumbbells on either side of your right ankle. Holding this lunge position, pull your elbows back -- keeping them close to your body -- to bring the weights up towards your hips. Release the weights back down to your ankles, push off your front foot and return to starting position. Repeat with the left leg. Keep alternating between legs, right and left, for 45 seconds then immediately move on to the next exercise.
