Move Targets: Hamstrings and Shoulders


Step-by-Step

Step 1: Stand with your feet hip-width apart, holding the dumbbells against the thighs. Lift the chest and keep the knees soft.

Step 2: Hinge at your hips, letting them fall behind your heels. The weights will slide against your legs on the way down. Drop your torso with a straight or slightly arched back. Go as low as you can without rounding your back.

Step 3: Push through your heels and squeeze the glutes as you lift up to standing. Once you're standing, immediately pull the weights up to the chest. The elbows will not pass your shoulders. Drop the weights to the thighs again and repeat.
