Crossover Lunge

Adding arm work to this glute- and inner-thigh-toner makes this a time-saving full-body move.

  • Stand with your feet shoulder-distance apart. Grasp a dumbbell or a medicine ball in front of you with arms extended.
  • Take a large step diagonally forward with your left foot, planting your foot at the 11 o'clock position. Sink down until your thighs form right angles. As you bend your knees, curl the dumbbell toward your chest.
  • Extend your legs, lift your left knee and bring it in toward your chest, and lower your arms. Step back with your left leg, this time lunging behind your torso and stepping back to the 8 o'clock position. As you sink down into the reverse lunge, complete another bicep curl. This completes one rep. Complete your set, and then switch sides.
  • A set equals 15 to 20 reps on each leg. Do two sets.
