Squat to Front Raise

Step 1

Start by standing and hold a dumbbell in each hand by your side, plant both feet on the floor hip-width apart. This is your starting position.

Step 2

Inhale. Looking straight ahead, bend at both the hips and knees, ensuring that your knees remain in line with your toes. Allow the dumbbells to gently run down the outsides of your legs. Continue bending your knees until your upper legs are parallel with the floor. Ensure that your back remains between a 45- to 90-degree angle to your hips.

Step 3

Exhale and push through your heels extending your legs to return to a standing position. As you reach the top of the movement inhale, using the muscles in your shoulders, with arms straight, raise both dumbbells directly in front of you to chest height with your palms facing down, ensuring that the dumbbells are parallel to (in line with) the floor.

Step 4

Exhale. Lower your arms back to your sides to return to the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
