Lunges are an excellent exercise for toning your thighs and glutes, but in order to add more bang for your buck and conserve time in the gym, try this complex exercise that incorporates the upper body (shoulders,triceps) as well.
Start off by raising the weights and holding them securely over your elbows, palms facing forward, in a proper shoulder press position. Lifting the right leg, take a big step backward, bending at the knee and allowing the right knee to drop down towards the ground (do not allow it to touch the ground however). Step back far enough to ensure that you form a 90 degree angle bend at both knees. Coming back to a standing position, not allowing the right foot to touch the ground but lifting the right knee in line with your waist. At the same time, press the weights upward into a shoulder press. Hold for 2 counts, then release. Do this for 12 - 15 repetitions then switch to the other side.
Hope you love this move as much as I did!! Enjoy!
