DUMBBELL LUNGES WITH BICEP CURL
Start in a standing position with both feet side by side with a dumbbell in each hand down by your side. Step out with one leg with a stride slightly larger than your normal walking stride. As your lead foot hits the ground, drop the opposite knee towards the ground as your curl the dumbbells up. Make sure that your lead leg heel is pressed to the ground and the knee is not moving past your toes. Your lead leg should be at a 90 degree angle at the knee. From the bottom position you can either push back with the front leg, driving through the heel, to the initial position or step forward with the opposite leg for walking lunges. Be sure to breathe and lower the dumbbells as you return back to the start position. Throughout the exercise, make sure to keep proper posture with your back straight and chest up. Avoid “lunging” your body weight forward. Instead, focus on lowering your body perpendicular to the floor.
