Side Lunge and Press

| Fitness Index


Move Targets: Glutes and Shoulders


Step 1: Grab a dumbbell or kettlebell to add resistance (or go weightless!). Begin with the feet under the hips, then step out to one side. Make sure the hips go backward and down so the chest stays lifted and the knee remains behind your toes. The other leg is completely straight.


Step 2: Push out of the lunge and bring the foot under the hip again. At the same time you bring the legs to neutral, you'll press the weight (or lift the arms) overhead.


Step 3: Bring the weight back to the chest level and lunge to the other side. Make sure you're working on the same line – not stepping in front or behind the other foot.
