Exercise of The Week: Squat To Twisting Overhead Press


Hold a dumbbell sideways in front of your chest. You should look like (A). Now sit back and do a squat while still holding the dumbbell in front of your chest. You should look like  (B). As you stand, press your arms straight up while twisting your torso  to left while raising the dumbbell. You should now look like (C).  Now twist back to the front while squatting back into position (B).  Straighten back up while twist to the right side while raising the dumbbell. That’s one rep.  It may sound a little complicated but in simpler terms you are squatting, twisting and raising dumbbells, squatting again, twisting and raising again.  Add 8-10 reps of these to your routine.
