Squat With Overhead Press

1 Move to Tone Your Entire Body

Here's a multitasking move to add to your booty-sculpting arsenal that'll give you shapely shoulders, work your abs, and tone your back. Not to mention it gets the heart rate pumping, too. Finally! A whole-body toner that is not a burpee.

  • Stand with your feet hip distance apart with a dumbbell beside each foot.
  • Take a breath in as you bend your knees, placing your weight in your heels as you squat down and grab the right dumbbell with your right hand.
  • Breathe out as you stand up, pressing the dumbbell all the way up into an overhead press.
  • Inhale to lower your right arm, squatting down, and bring the dumbbell back to the floor.
  • Stay low and grab the dumbbell on the other side with your left hand.
  • Exhale as you rise up, pressing your left hand overhead.
  • Inhale to squat and release the dumbbell back to the floor.
  • This counts as one rep. This movement should be fluid, focusing on correct squat form by keeping the thighs parallel and your body weight back into the heels.
  • Complete three sets of 15 reps.
