Move Targets: Glutes, Quads and Triceps


Step-by-Step

Step 1: Hold one dumbbell over your head with both hands. Make sure your elbows are nearly squeezing the sides of your head and are pointing forward. Feet are shoulder-width apart as you drop down into your squat. At the same time you drop into the squat, you drop the dumbbell behind your head. Tip: If you're looking in the mirror, you want to drop the weight low enough so you cannot see it.

Step 2: Exhale and drive out of the squat as you extend the weight overhead, completing the triceps extension. Inhale and repeat.
