Weighted Walking Lunges
"All forms of exercise require the use of muscles. The more you exercise, especially using weight-bearing exercises, the more muscle you build. Those who have more muscle mass burn more calories even at rest," said Chadwell.
- Stand upright with a pair of dumbbells in your hands.
- Take a step forward with your right foot while simultaneously lowering your hips toward the floor by bending both knees to 90-degree angles. Your back knee should get close to the floor but not touch. Your front knee should be directly in line with your second and third toes, but not extend past your toes.
- Press your right heel into the ground and push off with your left foot. Bring your left leg forward into a lunge. This completes one rep on each side.
- Aim for three sets of 20 reps each.
