Squat and Curl
- Start with your feet shoulder-width distance apart and toes pointed out slightly. Hold a dumbbell in each hand, directly in front of your hips. Breathe in and get tall, and as you exhale, brace (engage) your core.
- Inhale and, keeping your chest up, lower yourself into a squat, lowering the dumbbells between your legs toward the floor.
- At the bottom of your squat, perform a bicep curl, bending your elbows and pulling the dumbbells above your shoulders. Exhale as you drive through your heels and stand up. This completes one rep.
- Perform 12 to 15 reps.
