Walking Overhead Lunge
This lunge variation hits your upper and lower body at the same time, targeting your quads and hamstrings, obliques, and trap muscles in your back. Keep your core engaged throughout the move. Avoid shrugging your shoulders, and act like you're pulling your shoulder blades down your back to activate and engage your lat muscles, which are the broad muscles at your mid-back.
- With two dumbbells pressed overhead, drop into a lunge.
- In one swift, continuous movement, walk into a lunge with the opposite leg forward. Try not to bring your feet together at any time during the exercise.
- Repeat, keeping the dumbbells pressed overhead, for 12 steps.
