Instructions: 
Start: Stand with your feet hip-width apart and hold a dumbbell in your left hand.

Movement: Take a big step to the right and lower your body into a side lunge, keeping your left leg straight. As you push off your right leg to return to standing, curl the dumbbell toward your shoulder and then press it toward the ceiling, finishing with your left arm straight and your elbow close to your ear. That's one rep. Do eight to 12, then switch sides.

Tips: Push through your heel to return to standing.
