Break the Board

What you'll need: a pair of 2-pound dumbbells or sand weights (shown here: $13, bpp2.com/weights)

Targets butt and legs

  • Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, arms by sides, holding a weight in each hand.
  • Balancing on left leg, lift right knee to waist level as you raise arms in front of you to chest height, palms down; quickly lower arms to sides (as if pretending to break a board over right knee); return to start.
  • Switch legs and repeat to complete 1 rep. MAKE IT HARDER: Add a hop on standing leg as you lift opposite knee.
