Exercise of The Week: Dumbbell Swing
This week we are going to focus on our legs and our bottom 🙂 This exercise is not complicated and doesn’t require a whole lot of coordination. I personally love this exercise because you can do it in the comfort of your own home without having to have all kinds of fancy equipment. Plus you can do this in front of your TV while you watch your favorite show! (Gotta Love Multitasking) So how do you do it? Well, first you need 1 dumbbell, if you are just starting out use 5-10lbs. Next you need to…
Stand with your feet hip width apart and grab your dumbbell with an overhand grip (meaning that the flat part of your hand is facing outward). Push your hips back, knees slightly bent (almost like doing a squat) and bring your chest forward and the dumbbell up between your legs. you should now look like A. Now flex your abs, swing your hips forward and swing the dumbbell upward to about shoulder height. You will now look like B. Without losing momentum lower the weight back down and go back to starting position. That is one rep. I recommend doing the reps one side first and then repeating the exercise on the opposite side. Start with 2-3 sets of 10 on each side.Other Exercises: Split Jump Reverse fly Basic Lunge Frog Jump Jackknife sit-up Bent Over Row 30 Day Fitness Challenges: Curtsy Just Abs Jackknife sit ups Russian Twist Squats Dumbbell squat thrust
