1. Reverse Lunges
Start: Stand with feet together, hands on hips. Move: Take a large step backward onto the ball of your foot, balancing weight between both legs. The back heel should remain off the floor. Bend both knees and lower your hips toward the floor until the front knee is at a 90-degree angle. Push off the back toe to return to the starting position. Repeat, alternating legs.
2. Overhead Shoulder Press
Start: Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, knees slightly bent, and hold a pair of dumbbells at your shoulders, elbows down, palms facing forward. Start the program with light weights — three to five pounds since you'll be doing many repetitions. Move: Press the weights straight overhead until your arms are fully extended. Slowly lower back to the starting position.
