Weighted Scissor Arms

| Fitness Index


Move Targets: Arms and core


Step 1: Begin in standing position grasping a dumbbell in each hand, palms facing each other.

Step 2: Lower yourself into a squat by bending your knees and sitting back as if you were in a chair. Keep your chest up, knees behind your toes and your butt down.

Step 3: Extend your arms out in front of you at shoulder height, palms still facing one another. Stay put in squat position with arms almost locked and “scissor” your arms in a quick up and down motion for 60 seconds.

Modification (Beginner): Ditch the dumbbells and do not squat as deep.
