Tone your biceps, quads, and glutes all at the same time with this body-sculpting curtsy lunge.
The Double-Duty Curtsy Lunge

Sculpt your quads and glutes while toning your biceps with this double-duty curtsy lunge from David Kirsch, author of The Ultimate New York Body Plan: The Breakthrough Diet and Fitness System that Sheds Pounds and Reshapes Your Body -- Fast! (McGraw-Hill, 2005).

Work Up to 3 Sets of 15 Reps per Side

  • Stand with your feet shoulder-distance apart, holding a dumbbell in each hand with arms at sides.
  • Lunge diagonally forward with your right foot, crossing it to the outside of your left leg, bending both knees 90 degrees.
  • As you lunge, curl dumbbells toward your shoulders.

  • Straighten legs, then lift your right knee and bring it in toward your chest as you lower arms.
  • Lunge back diagonally with right leg, crossing leg behind body and to the left, bending both knees while curling weights toward shoulders.
