Hold for 1 count and then push from your abdominals to slide your feet into starting position. Do 12 repetitions.
2. Lunge to Overhead Press
Hold the dumbbells at shoulder height. Get into a lunge position, with the right knee bent at 90 degrees in front of you and left knee slightly bent behind you. Keep your neck and back long. Engage your abs, and start straightening both legs to come to standing. Press the dumbbells over your head. Bend your knees to come back to lounge position and lower the dumbbells to shoulder level. Do 6 repetitions and then switch legs.
