Body Focus:


• Begin by standing tall with your feet shoulder-width apart and pointing straight ahead, grab a dumbbells and holding dumbbell with both hands, arms extended in front of you.
• Then take a wide step forward with your right leg. Engage your abdominal muscles, straighten your back and look straight ahead.
• Maintain this position as you lower your hips toward the floor by bending your legs to 90°. Continue down until your left knee nears the floor.
• Rotate your torso and dumbbell to the right, keeping arms straight.
• Push your body back up through your front heel and step your front leg back to the starting position. Switch and repeat the moves on the left leg, rotating to the left (that’s one repetition). Complete the set repetitions by alternating between right and left leg.

Useful Tips:
• Keep your chest up, back straight and look ahead.
• Avoid leaning your body forward or backward.
• Do not let either heel turn inward. Keep feet in line with the legs.
• Your knees shouldn’t go pass your toes.
• The back heel should always be lifted slightly.

You should feel your:
