Multitasking Move: Walking Squats With Bicep Curls and Overhead Press

If toning your tush and thighs is on your mind, then you've got to get busy doing squats. They target your lower body like no other move, and just after a few repetitions you'll start feeling the burn. Here's a variation on the basic squat. It's similar to the side squat using a Theraband, but it uses dumbbells to add more resistance, and movement to make it more challenging.

To give it a try,

.

  • Hold a set of dumbbells in each hand. Start with your feet together with your arms by your sides, palms facing away from you.
  • As you take a small step to the right and squat down, do a slow and controlled bicep curl. Your feet should be hip distance apart, with your weight in your heels and your quads parallel with each other. Remain in the squat as you do an overhead press. Stay in the squat as you lower your arms down; your elbows are at your sides and your palms are facing you and pressed against your biceps. Then as your step your left foot to meet your right, straighten your arms, finishing the bicep curl.
  • Repeat this for a total of five steps to the right, then do five steps to the left. This counts as one set. Complete three sets.
