Alternating Curtsy Lunge with Curl to Press

I love adding dynamic exercises that workout multiple muscle groups to my workout routine.  The alternating curtsy lunge with curl to press is one of my favorites. This move will work your legs, biceps, and shoulders.  Now that's efficient!  Check out the instructions below and give it a try. 



1. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, holding one 5- to 15-pound dumbbell in each hand. 

2. Lunge one foot behind you and sweep it to the side, past your front foot. Lower your upper body into a squat so that your front thigh is almost parallel to the floor. Don't let that knee pass over your toes. Keep your chest up, shoulders down and navel pulled in. 

3. Bend your elbows to raise the weights with your wrists facing the ceiling, curling up toward your body. Keep your elbows tucked close to your sides.  

4.Press the dumbbell up above your head  

5.Return to starting position by pushing off the front heel and lower the weights. Repeat on the other side. 

6.Complete three to four sets of 10-12 reps on each side.
