How it's done: Start standing with feet shoulder-width apart holding a dumbbell in each hand, palms facing body, weights resting on quads. Keeping elbows straight, lift arms until they reach shoulder height. Then slowly lower back down. After two front raises, lift your arms outward until they're parallel to the floor. Return slowly to start. That's one rep. Repeat for 10 times and do three sets.
How it's done: Sit on the floor and bring your legs out straight. Lean back slightly so your torso and legs form a V-like shape, bracing your abdominal wall to engage your core. Balancing here, twist your torso from side to side without moving your legs. Aim to do 10-12 reps in two sets.
Stand with feet together, shoulders back, arms on the side holding weights and core tight. Lift right leg off the floor and take a big step backward. Lower your body toward the floor until right upper thigh is parallel to the floor and right knee forms about a 90-degree angle. Straighten up by pushing through right heel to return to standing. Repeat for 10 times in two sets.
