Exercise of The Week: Lateral Lunge and Press

 Lateral A laterazl B

 This week we are going to try something that only requires a slight bit of coordination. Again, I trip over lint so simple is always nice. This one as simple as it gets…well aside from a basic lunge. You start off with your feet shoulder width apart. Hold a set of 2-5lb dumbbells in your hands above your head like in A. Step to your left and lower your body into a lunge. At the same time (here is where the coordination comes in) lower your left hand down toward your shoulder like in B.  Using the same movement go back to A and repeat on the opposite side. That is one rep. Do at least 2 sets of 10 reps each. As time goes on you will be able to increase the weight of your dumbbells. That’s it! All there is too it. See told you it was easy 😉
