3. Crossover Reverse Lunges With Overhead Presses
Works: legs, hips, inner thighs, butt, shoulders
A. Stand with feet hip width apart and, with a dumbbell in each hand, bend your arms so elbows are at shoulder height (don’t let wrists bend).
B. Step right foot behind you and slightly to the left. Bend both legs, bringing your back (right) knee toward the floor as if curtsying. At the same time, raise the dumbbells overhead until your arms are straight.
C. Return to the starting position and repeat, still moving just your right leg. Repeat sequence on the right leg 12 to 15 times; switch legs and repeat for another 12 to 15 times on the left.
Make it easier: Bend your legs only slightly to decrease your range of motion when you do the crossover lunges.
