Dumbbell SquatWorkout 2: Lower-Body Strength Circuit: Dumbbell Squat
- Stand with feet hip- or shoulder- width apart, arms at sides holding dumbbells.
- Squat down, shifting butt back as if sitting in a chair, keeping body weight over heels (don't let knees go past toes).
- Return to standing and repeat. Do 15 to 20 reps.
Challenge yourself: Do the move as above without the weights, but as you stand, jump up explosively, then immediately squat down again.
