START: Stand holding a pair of dumbbells at your sides with a neutral grip, your palms facing each other. Starting from a narrow stance with your knees slightly bent, bend forward at your waist until your back is almost parallel to the floor. (Do not round your back.) Raise one leg and hold it in the air.

MOVEMENT: Pull the weights up to your rib cage without raising your upper body, and then lower them. After 15 seconds, switch the leg you balance on.


START: Hold the dumbbells next to your shoulders with your elbows bent.

MOVEMENT: Rotate your torso to the right as your press the dumbbell in your left hand at a slight angle above your shoulder. Reverse the movement back to the start, rotate to your left, and press the dumbbell in your right hand upward. Alternate back and forth.


START: Stand with your feet shoulder width apart.

MOVEMENT: Bending at your hips and knees, lower your body into a squat until you can place your palms on the ground. Kick your legs backward, and then reverse the move and pull your legs back to the squat position. Then quickly stand up.
