Move Targets: Shoulders and Core
Step 1: Stand with your feet under the shoulders and pull the dumbbells up to either side of your head, about ear height. Open the elbows like you see Melissa do here. Have a slight bend in the knees. You can even add a squat to this move!
Step 2: Dip a little, then push the dumbbell straight overhead as you rotate. If you are turning to the left, you'll lift your left arm. Pivot the feet to accommodate the twist. Come back to the center and repeat on the other side. One left-to-right combination counts as one rep.
